    There are several place that are cheap off the I26 at Ashley phosphate road, Montague and (last choice) Dorchester road. they are within about 15 minutes of the stadium

    there is also a hostel closer to downtown

    I heard good things about them so it might be worth a look.

    We're staying at cottages at James Island Park for the Easter weekend matches. We stayed there last year. They sleep 8, so the price is pretty decent ($138/night).

    pleanty, they guys usually will sign them after games. they will usually do them before entering the locker room but Ive seen them doing it along the pitch as well.

    To The Regiment and all Battery fans:

    Thank you for all of the hospitality. Charleston is a beautiful, classy city, as is Blackbaud. The Battery seem to be a pretty strong side and it is good to see a committed group of fans. Hopefully I will be seeing you soon.

    Thanks Mikey. I enjoyed the trip. I will certainly be watching some of the games online, and envying the weather for the time being (back to chilly times up here in NY).

    Let the record show that even though we've been in 2 more CCC's than the Red Pony's, we have a better GD. Good work Henry.

    And also to Cobi, very nice article. Hope you can visit again sometime in the near future.

    Thanks, it did take me quite a while to get the match results for 2004 & 2005 in particular, by digging up the past news reports one-by-one. Fortunately the Charleston site still kept all the archive, :)

    By the way, SJE/HOU have played exceptionally well in this tournament (both won all editions contested by them & still remained unbeaten so far), it'd be great to see them play each other in future, ;)

    i think now theres going to be a new streak going....the team who does the worst in the CCC will make the Finals of MLS. Red Bulls were just as bad in the CCC as they were in the regular season...lol. But none the less made it to the finals so kudos to them

    G&B, you need to get on your front office stat and get DCU plugged in. We could have quite the time with DCU & Toronto's fans.

    The Regiment is kicking around trying to organize a fan CCC competition with games played between the supporter's groups during the week. Might be the first of its kind....a supporter's group cup competition. We played Sunderland's supporters when they visited us several years ago, it was a blast & they had a great time. Would be pretty cool if the logistics come together. But first, we need some teams with large groups of traveling fans.

    I asked Steven Goff about whether DC might come down on The Soccer Insider™. He said he hadn't heard anything (didn't expect him to have) but it may be a bit early yet. Hopefully it put a little something in the back of his mind and he'll ask the team sometime soon :)
