We did what I thought was a pretty good housing thing last time. I found a five bedroom suite with a hot tub and a garage for like, $750 for four days or something like that, slept 12-18, through VRBO.com. That kind of thing will cut down on nightly housing fee, depending on how many people. There's a ton of them available in the summertime, right next door to reg/tech/start.
As we get closer I'll probably try and do something like that again, I think it worked out OK last time.
The house is a good way to go. We split a giant vacation house amongst 3 rally teams for maine last year and it was very inexpensive. We even had a 3 car garage to park the rally cars in at night or work on.
