There is more to be gained by members raising hands saying "I'll do that" instead of pointing fingers saying "nobody's doing that."

I missed the discounted rate (had to make sure the job would allow me to go) but I'm registered.

Looking forward to seeing the gang again! And riding the HawK's Nest near Port Jervis! ;)

No one? Any one? Ok.
May need to book it. Unless someone needs to bow out for whatever reason I'm happy to take over your room-that is if you booked early and got the lower rate. Thanks all.

Spring Fling Rally begins in just over 2 weeks. Let the countdown begin.
There is still time to book a room and register for the event.

I did this for my own sake/sanity, but sharing with everyone.  I took the 10 routes from the COG library and optimized them for the current Base Camp map.  I also cleaned up some of the most common errors like misplaced waypoints, and waypoints in the middle of an intersections.  In those cases I moved the waypoint past the intersection so the GPS will route you through the intersection.  I also added the Matamoras spring Fling Loop, a route that I created.  So you have a choice of route files to choose from.  See you guys in two weeks.   :motonoises:

What should I expect if I can only get there Saturday afternoon & evening?...
On SAT most folks begin returning from riding early afternoon. You can hang out and meet many COG members and enjoy witty parking lot conversations. If you register for the rally you can join us for the group dinner (the majority of the rally fee covers the SAT evening buffet)
Looks like the buffet is the only option for me.  What time is the buffet?  I promise I won't post that nobody talked to me, if nobody posts that I didn't talk to nobody.  BTW last train to Hoboken is 8:46 pm from Port Jervis  :truce: :motonoises:

I believe the dinner is planned to begin 6:00 PM.

So far we had a beautiful Thursday with lots of arrivals and people catching up with both old and new friends. Friday is a little
overcast and we've had a few showers but most had or had gone out for some riding. most of the roads seem to be in decent shape
with a few areas of construction scattered about. All in all it's a great time with great COG friends. Wish you could all be here!

I still might make it to the buffet.  I'll be troubleshooting a mystery in the morning and if I get it fixed before, um, (scrolls back a few posts) I'll say 2:30, I can get there at mellow speeds.
I have to ride home afterwards & work Sunday, though.
Y"all just keep having a good time with or without me  :great:

Home and unpacked and already looking forward to the fall rally! bummed we can't make the national this year but
we will get two out of three for the area. Sure wish more of you had been able to attend this fling as the weather was
mostly good and the roads were in good shape as well. We had plenty of people to talk to and I think we made the first
time rally goers feel welcome. I talked to a few newer people but didn't know all of them so sorry if we didn't get to chat
or you didn't feel welcome.
BIG THANK YOU to Steve and Steve and Sue and Bob and anyone else involved in getting this rally off the ground and
going, we had a great time as always and we look forward to the next one's we can attend. We hope everyone had a
safe and good ride to wherever you were heading. Take care and hope to see you all soon!

Don't forget to sign up for the Fall Rally as Steve and Sue always put something great together and deserve our support!
Thanks again to our AD Steve Smith for always jumping into the deep end to help with anything and everything!

N.E. Area rocks so if your out there just reading things and wondering what it's really all about, come join us for some fun
and laughs and a real social experience... Face to face!

I enjoyed meeting more Coggers in person.  It wasn't the real rally experience since I got there after noon Saturday and had to head home about 8:30 PM.
I heard some great stories and the food was great (though some dishes could have been warmer).  Sure would like to try the sleepover some day.
Also put a few miles on what has been mostly an idle year for the bike.

Made it home around 10am after an early Sunday departure and slabbing it all the way. John had to get back to teach m/c class, and Bill & I had to be back in time for granddaughters dance recital. Had a deer cross in front of us on I-84 in Fishkill NY. Also got to witness karma as a Mercedes that was weaving through traffic and passed us on the right in a slow vehicle lane got lit up by a CT trooper who was sitting on an entrance ramp.

Thanks to all who attended. The event came together nicely, and the weather wasn't too shabby -  all things considered.
