CAA Tourney moving to Charleston in 2017
Agree with swampcougar. I would argue the N Charleston Coliseum is in a much better place, safety wise, than Royal Farms arena in Baltimore. There are surely some god awful places in N Charleston but the area surrounding the Coliseum is definitely not one.

I'll miss hitting Pratt St. Pub before and after games. Will have to research bars near the coliseum.

What was the name of the establishment that did not appreciate you as a customer?

RE: CAA Tourney moving to Charleston in 2017
I went to the 2006 SoCon tournament at the North Charleston Coliseum. It isn't much smaller than the arena in Baltimore.

Don't confuse CoC's beautiful, small arena with the North Charleston Coliseum, also don't confuse Charleston with North Charleston.

North Charleston has all the charm of Hampton.

I go for the hoops and watch every game, so I don't care about sightseeing opportunities. I have made several work and play trips to Charleston already, so I will go for the hoops and only the hoops next March.

For me, it is much, much easier to drive to Charleston for the tourney than it was to go to Baltimore, but for the league, I think this is a short sighted move.

I guess I should be happy for the Tribe, because this move is worse for our northern rivals fans than for most Tribe fans. The big winners are CoC and UNCW.

I am really looking forward to the tourney. Still have not got us a hotel room yet. We stayed at the Marriott Inner Harbor last year but they do not even have rooms right now. And it seems like the really nice places are really price gouging this year. I think that I am going to just bide my time for several weeks and maybe go the Trivago, Priceline, etc. route, figuring that I might be able to get a deal for three nights once some of these places realize that they might have some rooms on their hands. I have never used a site like Priceline before.

Priceline is great for the Inner Harbor. You can bid for Inner Harbor 4* hotels and start around $80. After a bid or two it will start to guide you. There are about seven 4* in the area. You can't control which one you get, but they are all nice. I got the Marriott Waterfront last year for $95.

I thought that I remembered that was what you did. Did you wait until February to bid? Just wondering if the deals get a bit better the closer you get to the date.
