For those travelling to the upcoming tournament there are numerous hotels, in all price ranges, within an easy drive of the tournament site.
Here is a link to show the various hotels (deep blue pins)…in relation to the tournament site (light blue pin).
Hovering over a dark blue pin will tell you hotel name, price, distance from tournament site, rating. For example: Holiday Inn Express is 2.8 milies and Motel 6 is 3.8 miles.
There is ONE motel in Barling, the Emily Inn. Here is a link to that one: http://www.whitepages.com/business/emily-inn-barling-ar
The venue for the tournament is a church, allowing us to keep the EF costs down in contrast to choosing one of the chain hotels with larger convention and meeting space when weather could play a factor in attendance in January.
One can get to the tournament site either by taking Zero Street (which becomes Hwy 255 or Church St) or taking Hwy 22 (Rogers Ave) to Strozier Lane. Either can get you to the tournament quickly as it is located near where these major routes converge. Across the road is the Janet Huckabee Nature Center.
Fort Smith has every major chain if you have a favorite brand for reward/loyalty program points. Because many player prefer to stay where they can earn their program reward points it makes things tricky for a TD to negotiate space and rooms, especially in winter months.
We look forward to having you, and remember if you travel more than 100 miles one-way we offer a bonus discount. Please mention when you pre-register. Also, early bird discount applies to entries postmarked this week!
