2023 NTBA Nationals June 11-17, Biloxi, MS

2023 Nationals Dates and Hotel
Hi All,

We have a hotel contract with the IP Biloxi Hotel and Casino for the 2023 NTBA National event June 11-17 in Biloxi, MS. This is a beautiful hotel casino with great views of the Gulf. Biloxi is 13 miles west down the coast hi way of our original announcement of Gulfport.

Before you call or go online for reservations, please read a few changes we had to make. We’ve moved everything that week up one day. Traditionally we’ve made the official day’s Thursday -Saturday, with the general meeting on Saturday. Now the official days will be Wednesday-Friday with the general meeting on Friday. However we will start “informal” runs on Monday, so we have a full week of driving our buckets! The reason for this is price! The room rate jumps dramatically over the weekend days of Friday and Saturday. This way we’re not throwing two nights of a high rate at you! Unfortunately there is a resort fee per night added we were not able to get around.

We have for our use a tremendous amount of parking. On the south side of the hotel (if your looking at a sky view) is a huge hard packed dirt lot that, I think can fit two cruise ships! This will be good for the trucks and trailers. A big bonus we’ll also have is the entire eighth floor of the parking garage! Blocked off just for us and our cars! All parking under video surveillance for security. We can socialize and bench race in our own private area!

There is also a nice RV park on the next block over. Boomtown Biloxi RV park 228-435-7000. I suggest you call soon for this reservation, not sure how quickly they fill up.

Again, the NTBA board has put a lot of work into securing this hotel for our official site. All the (fun) activities will take place there including the start and finish of our runs. So please plan to make your stay with us.

The group name is: National T Bucket Alliance
Group code: TBUF23C

Weekday rates are $109.99 plus a $14 resort fee and tax. Friday and Saturday night rates are $189.99 plus resort fee and tax.
Last year in Bowling Green we ran out of rooms in the early part of the week.
So we’ve blocked:
Sunday: 50 rooms
Monday and Tuesday: 75
Wednesday-Friday: 80

Please make your reservations early, even if your plans change you can always cancel. The hotel tells me that after the cutoff date you most likely will not get a room. If you call me after that date I probably can’t help.

I’ll be putting out more information as we go along. We look forward to seeing each and everyone of you at the NTBA Nationals in Biloxi, MS!
