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'm still trying to figure out the Fall Fling and what to pack.  I like the idea of a new venue.   :beerchug:
Silver 2011 C-14 and 2019 Versys 1000 SE LT+.  Previous rides: KZ-400, KZ-750, KZ-1000.  Keep the rubber side down.  Ride Fast......Live Slow......

Sounds like Rain Gear might be the most important item this coming weekend!
Or the Ford/Chevy/Toyota.
Have fun and be careful in the rain.

I'm glad it's moving as well. Bedford's a nice place to visit, but time to move on. Might swing west and visit the HOF on the way up.

We're getting the final details worked out and will be releasing Room info and registration soon! Maybe over the weekend.

I'm a little bit tired of doing everything on the "CHEAP" for our COG events, so look forward to an upgraded Banquet on FRIDAY night!
With the great deal we got on rooms that include breakfast you'll be able to splurge a bit on the registration cost.

Stay tuned.

Greetings COG Northeast Members

The news is that rallymeister extraordinaire Jason Kaplitz has locked down the details for the 2016 Spring Fling Rally. We will be trying a new venue and location next year. Williamsport, Pennsylvania.
Here are the details from Jason....

COG Northeast Spring Fling 2016
May 19 -22, 2016
The historic Genetti Hotel in Williamsport, PA will provide in-town lodging and walking access to local attractions and eateries. Williamsport’s location offers great riding within minutes of leaving the parking lot. The hotel is offering us a terrific group room rate of $79.95+tax per night, including a full breakfast buffet! Book rooms early as our room block will only be held until April 19th. One important change to note is that the rally Banquet will be held on Friday evening, May 20th in the hotel banquet room. We have selected a very nice menu that will surely please our membership.

Planning for the event continues, but online registration is OPEN and Room Reservations are being taken by the hotel. There is a discounted fee for early rally registrations. You must call the hotel direct to make reservations and ask to for a room from our block. The event details, hotel info, and event host contact info are posted on the COG website in the Calendar of Events.

http://www.cog-online.org/clubportal/EventDisplayNew.cfm?clubID=1328&p=303020&mz=3EADA54A-9385-A34E-7B7E6E0A339635D2&EventID=225498

Watch for more details online and in future NE newsletters, but know that Spring Fling 2016 is going to be a great one!
BOOK THOSE ROOMS and register online today.

I had a request to extend our discounted room rate to one day earlier.....................

So, I called the motel and got it extended one day earlier for those wanting to come in early.

Kudos and thanks to Jason. I feel he hit a home run with this location (pun intended, as this is the birthplace of Little League Baseball). The Genetti hotel is a historic location in town, looks to be real nice, and situated in the downtown area within a short, walkable distance to food & beverage establishments.

The buffet menu selected is a step up from the base offering and what is typically offered at the rallies. We'll get the preliminary menu posted with the other rally details in the online event calendar soon.

Expect to see sample ride loops posted early next year. The hope is to re-spin several of the Wellsboro ride loops from past years to start/end in Williamsport and reissue updated sample ride routes that can download, adjusted, and installed on  GPS or printed.

Hopefully, we won't have to ride down the road to buy that beer at the new location.  :great:
