We played both layouts this weekend. The first one was ok but changing out the mini race to a pin and adding a pin to the snake side it much more fun to play. We want to offer the events/layouts that are fun to play so we made the 2 small changes.
Play the Star Series Frostbite Open 2015
ECLIPSE, EXALT, V-Force, Anthrax
There's a hotel right by the exit for the field, so you're literally 5 min from the field. The motel 6 is one exit before the.field, closer to a ten minute drive. Then there's one of the Marriott family hotels 4 exits away, maybe 15 minutes total from the parking lot to the field. Plus there's a thread around here with some hotel info.
