It was an odd mix. Wizards walking around the circle with the bikes on friday and saturday night. I also heard from one waiter that he prefers the Gencon crowd to the motogp crowd because the tip better. The hotel staff told me they liked the motogp folks better, the don't rearrange the furniture. It's never too soon to make a reservation.
