SPIDER RIDE 2016 SEPTEMBER 16TH-18TH
« on: January 20, 2016, 10:30:11 pm »
The dates for Spider Ride 2016 are confirmed for September 16, 17 and 18 held at the HUZZAH VALLEY RESORT.  Make plans and mark your calendars now!  This is the largest event in the North Central Area featuring GREAT ROADS AND AWESOME MEMBERS.  Last year we have 75 riders from 15 states represented.  A great time will be had again this year.

Everything will basically be the same as previous years.  We will serve dinner Friday evening, breakfast and dinner Saturday, and Sunday breakfast.  While the menu is not yet set, figure Burgers/Dogs and side dish on Friday evening, a catered BBQ Saturday evening.  Breakfast will be cold and hot instant cereal both Saturday and Sunday.  For those of you who want to arrive Thursday, meals are on you. 

We again have Pavillion #1 reserved from Thursday through Sunday.  We have also reserved for campers the entire grassy area by the pavillion which runs along the river.  RV sites w/hook ups are also available.  Pay for Camp/RV sites at the HUZZAH VALLEY general store when you enter their facility.  Coin operated hot showers are close by.   A limited number of Cabin rentals are also available.  Early reservations for cabins is recommended and will be handled by HUZZAH VALLEY RESORT.  Tell them you are with the COG group.  For information about the resort, tent/RV fees and cabin reservations go to:   www.huzzahvalley.com

I'll get the event posted on the North Central calendar once I have a better idea of the event costs.  Continue to check this thread or look on the NC Calendar for the exact amount.  I should have a firm price by May 1st.

As the new event coordinator feel free to call/text me at 314-606-2233 or email me:  gmazzola@sbcglobal.net
I'm looking forward to another fantastic event and I hope to see you there.  Gary Mazzola

Gary you've got some big shoes to fill following in Tony's footsteps. I have no doubt you'll do a great though. Looking forward to my 5th Spider.

I am making solid plans to go this year!! I have been a COG member since 1991, with a short break in time while I rode the ST11/1300's. (member #886)

This is less than 2 hours from the house. So if I don't have to work I'm in.

Very cool guys, thanks for the enthusiasm.  I've already had some offers to help with washing dishes and trash removal.  And yes I hope Tony will actually ride his bike this year.  Please spread the dates with members in the other areas.

I will be checking on this one.

Why do they call it the Spider Ride?  Does it have to do with the roads?

Any ideas what the highlights of this years event will be?

Jeff and Tony can jump in on this response but this is the explanation given to me. 

The Spider Ride has taken place for 20 years.  As the event has grown in numbers, the number of states and distance representing where people come from to has also grown.  Thus a "web" of roads and miles created by those attending.

If I recall, apporximately 75 riders from 17 states from as far away as Massachusetts to the east and Colorado to the west attended last year.  Put it on your September to do list and we will see you there.

Spiders are very active going into fall weaving their webs that draw Cogger's from all directions into the web of the Spider Ride.  Doesn't matter, Just BE THERE .

OK.  :great:  :beerchug:

At this point, I plan on hitting the RWTW, then The Spider, mess around in AR for a bit and depending on weather, head for the big bend area. Probably on the KLR. I no longer have to be in a hurry to get back to that "w" word.  :great:

This will likely be a case of hitting your place after the Spider, iff'n that's OK.

The 2016 SPIDER RIDE (Sepetmber 16-18) is now posted on the NC event calendar.  The format and location is the same as previous years.  The Spider will be held at the Huzzah Valley Resort in Steelville, MO.  Camping and rooms are available. 
www.huzzahvalley.com for camp site and room information.

This year there will be a few additions and changes.

First Registration for the event will be on-line only. 

Second The meal menu has changed.  Saturday dinner will be a Whole Hog Roast! :great:  Dinner will include two side dishes, a choice of drink and dessert.  Saturday and Sunday morning we will have hot breakfast sandwiches, coffee, milk, juice. 

Registration is open now through September 1, 2016.  It is important everyone register by 9/1 so I know how much food and supplies to purchase and what size hog to buy to feed everyone.

I know some members are planning to arrive Thursday.  As in the past you are on your own for dinner.  We will figure something out for Friday morning breakfast.

I'm really excited and looking forward to this being another big event.  My contact information is with the online registration form if you have any questions or PM me from the forum site.

I had reservations at Huzzahvalley for June 5-6 as I was going to be passing by and be only about 18 miles from them.
So I was going to do a 2 day test stay to get a lay of the land and the campground.

Had to cancel because of my accident.
They said they would keep my deposit on account for up to a year.

If at all possible, and I can be back to riding by that date, it will be a sure thing for me as I had to cancel ALL 3 of my motorcycle get togethers
I had planned in June including the National.

So as soon as I feel confident to hold up the bike with the broken leg and feel riding is safe I will more then likely be signing up for this one.
It's too early to tell just yet but I have high hopes that my entire season won't be a total loss and I can join you guys/gals in Sept.   :great:

My A$$umption is that reservations would not be required for tent camping, would that be correct?
