'15 National Rally North Central Non-Attendees query
« on: December 06, 2014, 08:53:19 pm »
  For those of us in the Lake Erie region who'er NOT making the ride out west for the National Rally, I've got a question;
   Would you be willing to gather for a weekend outing at Lake Hope State Park just west of Athens, Ohio?

  Trying to get an idea of how many would be interested in this before I proceed any further.

  Oh...looks like the weekend of June 20th/21st would be optimal as far as cabin availability goes(as of today).

    Arrive friday aftnoon...depart Sunday the 21st.

There is no such thing as too much ammo, unless you are on fire or trying to swim.

Hey there Mark, like I posted on the other forum, just sendin' feelers out now, prolly won't pull the trigger & make it a done deal until mid-late January.
If'n there's only 2-3 interested I'm probably not going thru w/ it... :-\

although this place( http://www.millstonebbq.com/) would be a good replacement ride for the hog heaven bbq ride that was cancelled last month

Is this idea open to those of us outside of your area?

I'm 24 hours from Cortez and I just might not have the time. Plenty to do around here but I've not ridden much in Ohio. Just passed through.

Oh, I'm sure it is, Fais.  It would be great to see ya again...and hear some of your tales from all those miles you've been rackin' up! :great:
And I hear southeast Ohio is great riding.  It's time for me to find out fer-cryin-out-loud, I live close enough to it!

The National was in my backyard this year.  AND I had time. Doubtful 2015 will be so forgiving.

Ummm....Jorge,  did you misread it,  did I mistype it,  or are ya just grossin' me?   ::)  I'll be there.  :nananana: And I imagine we'll be riding there together. :motonoises:
I'm gonna ride tomorrow and Sunday.  Haven't had a chance since I wrenched on the full AreaP exhaust.  Man, I'm hating this winter already.

Me too Mark, haven;t ridden for several weeks, between travelling and so on.
I was trying to poke you, but you don't bug very easily my friend.
If I go, absolutely about riding there together; that'd be half the fun. If Irene decides to ride her own, we might have to slow down... quite a bit  :-X
Either way, it would be fun.

     Food for thought: ::)   

    Here's a link to the cottages: http://www.lakehopestatepark.org/Cottages.php

    Camping's available also:  http://parks.ohiodnr.gov/Portals/parks/PDFs/parks/Maps/Lake_Hope/lakehopecampmap.pdf

Hey guys... just to bring the topic about the non-rally up again :)
Irene and I are planning on this at this point. We're OK with sharing cabin space with others. I know some of the cabins have one room with a larger bed, and the other rooms with two twin sized beds, so we'd be happy with this  :great:
I'm passing the word along to our AAD, so he can let others know about this. At this point, there may be only one or two going to the National from Indiana, so this might be a good alternative. We're just under 4 hrs from the park, so very doable leaving after work Friday, or a little earlier.
This sounds like it might be a fun "non-rally".
Dean, Not sure there is much more to prepare, other than people saying "I'll be there", and then showing up. If only a few show, that's OK, if a lot show, that's OK too.
Mark, if you read this, are you still in? ou could come down and we could meet up somewhere on the Eastern side of the state.

Is this the Moonshine Lunch crowd?

I may have to catch you guys for that one since I'm making the trip to Cortez.

Not a crowd yet, Fais.   Me, STeater, and his buddy from Minneapolis is it so far.  (for Moonshine)

Sorry Al, wrong choice of words.  I was just referring to my immediate group that Fais and I had talked about a bit in another thread.
Yep, Moonshine is a big crowd, w/COG represented well, as I understand it.
