Chambanacon report, or, Are YOU a BANANA?|

Now that the old Chambanacon hotel in Champaign has been torn down and replaced with a big Hilton, is there talk of returning to the original site?
My suspicion is that will remain a big "No Go" as long as the Illinois High School Football Championships are in Champaign over Thanksgiving weekend. But I'm not on the concom, so take that with the appropriate amount of salt.

As Bill says, as long as that damned football tournament is across the street, it doesn't make sense for the hotels to give us a tolerable rate. If we make it back to Chambana (and we'll be trying), it will be in a hotel farther from the stadium.
