There is a double tree in Alsip that is less than 10 minutes from Moraine..there is also I think it is still a Hilton on Cicvero Ave in Oak Lawn that is about 15 from Moraine....there are a bunch of seedy ones around the area also...but the 2 I mentioned I would stay at either one.

Unfortunately, most everything is already booked. Many Treffen people booked early I think.

However, When I was researching, there was a country inn and suites in Tinley Park. but Schaumburg won't be too bad, The highway is quick.

I agree with Sarah, Schaumburg is good choice in my opinion, and yes the road to chicago is prety fast, i can tell you for fact, in 45 min or so you're at lake shore drive up on the north side...

Tinely Park is a lot faster to get to Moraine than Shaumburg.....the Country Inn is a decent place to stay...and plenty of places to get food along the way or very near the hotel.......

Treffen sure does bring out good people. The best thing was that I ran into quite a few of the OG's today!, the new group of people have taken CVO to another level and it's a good this because this organization needed fresh ideas and leadership, not dissing the OG's yo!

Big thanks go out to all the board members and thier girlfriends, sisters, brothers, cuzns, club members and Karl with a K for making MW Treffen 16 successful !! Also, thanks to all the sponsor!

Had a good time. For being sick most of the weekend, nursing a serious tooth ache and someone trying to brake into the Corrado at the hotel :realmad: , it was a good weekend overall. Thanks again for putting on such a great event. Wish I could have made the run this year but my body said NO :sick:

I caught the back end of the cruise and had a good time- and sunday looked like a great turnout, I took some photos I should be posting in the next couple days or so.

Lots of very cool cars and setups!

This was by far my favorite Treffen of all of them I have attended whether it be a spectator or someone actually in the show. Very nice to see everyone there who I hadn't seen in a while. Greg, the exhaust on your car is awesome :thumbup:

I know I'm not a member of CVO, but I actually had an idea next year I wanted to suggest to the head board member. Anyone know who he/she is?

Thank you to all the sponsors, volunteers, board members and everyone that helped out to give everyone there a good time. This was a great show and I'm sure took a lot of work behind the scenes to setup. Thank you again for the great weekend.
