I booked my room at the Inn Cal early Friday morning at 69 bucks through the 800 number. I later called back and the rates had jumped to 74.95. Then I called the hotel itself last night at 9pm just for kicks and the rate had jumped to 84 bucks on Friday and Saturday, but they offerd the Sunday night at 50 bucks.
No one I talked to was familier with “The Cal MUni weekend” so they didn’t offer the discount. HOwever, in hindsight, I didn’t ask for a discount for the complete title of California MOuntain UNicycle weekend". So maybe that is why there wasn’t any recognition.
The difference in price quotes might have been due to the only haveing more expensive rooms available and the less expensive ones were booked. Not sure.
I have Triple A so I can get a discount that way if the discount doesn’t come from the Cal Muni weekend discount.
I went with the CAl in since it was near Bruce’s house. Figuring I could walk home after Saturday NIght.
I have just (finally) booked my room at the Inn Cal, on Monday morning. Price quoted to me, with MUni Weekend discount, was $84.95/night. Oh well, I would have booked much earlier but Jacquie was trying to figure out if she was going to Santa Cruz, or on a different trip with a group of her friends.
So now I have a room with a spare bed on Friday and Saturday nights, and space for a roommate to share the cost. Please let me know if you’re interested!
Room rates at the British Muni weekend were 7 ukp per tent pitch.
Actually, there are a lot of camping areas in the Santa Cruz vicinity for those of you who would like to camp. None are as close as the Inn Cal, but they’re an awful lot cheaper.
Unfortunately Bruce’s house is not very big, so there isn’t a lot of room for floor (or even yard) sleeping. Santa Cruz isn’t the cheapest place to stay, but that’s all part of the location, location, location.

[OT] John I don’t know why you repeated the word. It rang a bell
though so I tried to remember. It’s in another forum I participate in,
on live (sound) recording. Rather than good microphones or other
equipment, rule number one is the mantra “location, location,
location”. To bring this post back on-topic, it’s not unlike
“practice, practice, practice” in our beloved sport.
If you had this signature, I have forged it.
This is a variant of the expression:
There are three important things about real estate: location, location, and location.
Another variant is:
The success of your business depends on three things: location, location, and location.
