How do you stop the music playing on the site? The only way I could figure out to turn off the music was to close the site.

:frustrated:

Lets be honest, you never go because of family commitments. And you know where the volume control is

I dislike web sites that auto play videos and/or music, especially when the video is on a portion of the page that is not your current focus. It has nothing to do with whether or not I'd attend. Perhaps I might be thinking of attending, I have attended in the past.

I'll go climb back under my rock now.

Back out from under my rock:

Another question. Do you have alternate hotels, or are we limited to the Ameristar Casino?

:curious:

Got you beat - we are over 20 hours away.

And I am well past the days when I'd get off a graveyard shift, get into the car and tow a race car to Laguna Seca in one shot (usually around 13 hours). Plus my wife insists on stopping more often than once a day (unreasonable woman!). Makes a 2 day run into 3 days.

My preferred max is 6 hours per day. Got the wife to sign off on me flying out for 3 days. Will she sign off on me being gone for eight days if I drive?☠️ Stay tuned.🤕

Blackhawk has many hotels. But they are generally in casinos. You can stay elsewhere and travel of course. We don't have alternates as the hotel has plenty of space. If it sells out we will look at alternates

Hope you can make it

All you need to do is hit pause and the video stops. But it's my house so I can't imagine anyone not wanting to watch it again!

The link that I followed to get to the web site dumped me somewhere on the site other than the page that has the video, yet the video loaded in the background and then played. Had I seen the video loading I would have been able to click on it and pause it, but there was no video showing.

It's one of those things that some web pages do that just aren't very well behaved. If you are going to autoplay a video, don't start it until it is within the view of the observer.

I cruised down the main drag on Google Earth in Street View mode. That is one boat load of casinos!

Don't know if I'll attend, it's a long, long drive to get there. But there's a lot of time to think about it.

That's also one boat load of some of the finest driving roads you could ever hope to find in such concentration! If ever there was an excuse to make such a long drive, this is it!

Do it! EVERYONE else is!

I don't disagree, I've driven many of them.
