ACG Contests and Events
Mid-America Gathering, St. Louis, MO

Holiday Inn St. Louis SW Route 66, in Sunset Hills, Missouri,  will be our central meeting point. We will have use of a business conference room for three days, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, July 6, 7, and 8. Room will be at ACG discretion from 8:00 AM to 11:00 PM each day. There will be space for a few small table displays, if anyone wants to do that.
The Holiday Inn will be convenient to several day trip destinations, mostly within minutes, each only demanding as much time and walking as a person wants to put into it. Excellent photo ops will abound! There is a great selection of dining options available within a block or two. Our meeting room location is where old Route 66 (today it is Route 366, Watson Road) crosses Lindbergh Boulevard, near city limits of Sunset Hills and Kirkwood.
We have a hold for a block of 7 guest rooms, at a very competitive special rate. Rates should be applicable for prior Wednesday evening through following Wednesday morning. You can stay a night or two, you can stay a week, whatever works for you. Hang out for several days, or drop by during Thursday, Friday, or Saturday. Those are the three days we will have use of the meeting room, and the main days of the Gathering. Last year some attendees came a day early, or even left a few days late. We coordinated through our cell phone list. Or if you live in the St. Louis area and don't need a guest room, stop by any time during the Gathering, give me a call so we know you are coming ( my private cell number is 636-751-1319 ).
I researched the other hotels in the immediate neighborhood, and this rate represents a very good value, quality and price. Of course you are free to explore other options available within a couple of miles, and addresses in cities of Sunset Hills, Kirkwood, Fenton, or Valley Park, Missouri would be fairly close by.
If you reserve at Holiday Inn St. Louis SW Route 66, you can get the promised rate by calling Holiday Inn Central Reservations toll-free at 1-800-465-4329 (refer to Argus Collectors Group at Holiday Inn Route 66), or call hotel direct 314-821-6600 and refer to Argus Collectors Group block of guest rooms.

Once cut-off date of Wednesday June 14, 2017, has passed, all unreserved guestrooms will be released for
general availability.
The hotel address is 10709 Watson Road, St. Louis, Missouri 63127.
