Registration for the September 2018, 23nd ANNUAL SPIDER RIDE is open on the NORTH CENTRAL CALENDAR.
 
The event will again be held at Huzzah Valley Resort, Steelville, MO.    (www.huzzahvalley.com) or call (1-800-367-4516).
Tent camping is $12 per night or you can reserve in advance in one of their cabins for an additional charge.  Tent campers pay when you arrive.  Restrooms and coin operated hot showers are close by.

Registration is $40 for members, $50 for non-members and will include breakfast Friday, Saturday and Sunday and dinner on Friday and Saturday.  Friday dinner will be burgers and brats and Saturday will be a whole hog roast with sides and a dessert.

Here is the link:

Official dates will be September 14-16th, but everyone knows many will arrive Thursday the 13th.  Thursday dinner is on you.  We usually have dinner in Steelville at the Spare Rib Inn or Missouri Hick BBQ.

Great roads, great people, great food.  It doesn't get any better.   I'm expecting another big group this year.  Get yourself registered and tell your friends!

After a two year hiatus the Kerkows will be returning to the one of the best COG rallies. Now I just need to decide what bike to bring.

A blast from the past. Who knows what year this was.




Off we go into the great unknown.

I suspect that picture is from 2010 because several people are wearing t-shirts from the Tomah National. 

Here's a pic from 2005, pre-Huzzah.  A bunch of those people are still attending the Spider Ride.

Can someone explain why it's called the Spider Ride?

I joined COG a few months ago because of all the great information and knowledge I found  in this group that has helped me tremendously in reviving my 2000 c10 that I purchased last year.   I have been looking for an event to attend that fits my schedule, and came across this one last week in my search. I plan on making this my first COG event and I'm really looking forward to it!  :) :D

I would like to say it was because it makes for a really cool T-Shirt, but I was told because all the roads head out from Rally Central like a Spider Web.

That's almost true from most towns or cities.
Yes, I have brewed up a funny t-shirt idea for that, but I may use it in a cartoon.  ;D

The SPIDER weaves the WEB that draws COG members in from all directions. Also there are many spider webs in the area that time of year.

Is the week we are there considered the "off season"?? I can't find this information on their website.  Should be, we are pretty much the only people there.  Would make about an $80.00 or more price difference renting one of the A frames.

Later,  well I think I finally found it, October to April is the off season.  Hey Gary, anything we can negotiate with the place on?
