I only rent a room on Saturday night. That's because most of our comps are a minimum of 200-250 miles away or more. I've never been able to get any use out of a room on Friday night, we're just too busy to take a break.

A Saturday night hotel room however allows us to take our time breaking down the site, partake in any of the festivities at the comps and get a good non-barbecue meal and most importantly a good nights sleep before heading home on Sunday morning. If you have a long drive home and your budget is limited (whose isn't) spend the money on Saturday night and I think you'll find you'll get a lot more use and enjoyment out of the room and the comp that way.

Would have to get a Broke Back' camera for the event . . . but I digress . . .

Wittdog does have a very valid point on the shower thing - whether to be taken alone or with the companion of your choice - competitions are a taxing event, and the competitors do have a tendancy to become a bit . . . um . . . err . . . how do I say this politely . . . . . . lets just say 'less than fresh' smelling! A shower also offers a revitalizing short break for the competitor!

Worth the price just for the shower. Makes you feel like a new person even if you didn't get any sleep.
Got that right. Any one ever notice that at the award ceremony it smells like a rest room at a truck stop?
