Many people will be traveling from out of town to see CRASE as it is one of the largest events of it's kind in Oklahoma, but this also can cause some problems for people who are not from the area. In 2010 there was a ton of road construction but most of that is gone now and the new interstate is up and running so there should be no problems with that this year. You may also want to come to town the night before and enjoy a relaxing evening before coming to CRASE, there are many hotels and motels in the area but it can be hard deciding which one you want to choose. And sometimes just the thought of traveling by yourself can be a daunting task so we will try and help with some travel information as well. So check out the links below and we will be putting updates in place if anything major changes so you can stay on top of information for CRASE 2011.
Sometimes when you travel you may not want to drive so you do have a couple options. If you are in an area where a few other people want to travel to the event get together and setup a carpool, you can always fly into town but you may want to check any restrictions on transporting your new corals back home. If you feel up for a interesting ride you can take the bus. And if you live along I-35 south of Oklahoma City or in the Dallas-Fort Worth area you have a unique opportunity to take the train.
Once you get to Oklahoma City you will have to find a place to stay and how to get around. Here is a list of links that have some information about getting around and staying in Oklahoma City.
