NW Regional?
« on: July 11, 2016, 09:37:20 pm »
A different motel in Republic? Joe pointed out in a PM we don't have a regional scheduled yet.

Republic is a great location.

Suggest weekend of Sept 17-18 for a NW regional in Republic, to space out from John Day?  Arrive 15th dept 18th or maybe 19th?  Depending on how much interest is generated on this thread, maybe Tim and I could coordinate?
Just a thought.

That's one week before the Ihop ride at Bob Rainey's place.

What available in August?  I'm probably going to be in California for work the last Friday of July.

Where do folks want to go?  Republic is nice, but it's a bit of a trip for the Oregon crew.

That was my thought as well, but if I am still unemployed by September I'll go anywhere...might even make it to Cedar City for SW gig. :great:

I'm back from my little trip to the coast.  I will make a point to run up to Republic soon. I have to work on getting some things set up for one of our Legion Riders cashing after a Parade in Waterville. Only thing I know is he drifted off the road an into sand on a corner. Broke his  back in two places and tore up a leg. He rode a Victory and all around nice guy. We are doing a BBQ Chicken feed with Both the Brewster and Okanogan  American Legions working together.

Ouch!   :(
I know Republic is a bit north for OR, but it's got great roads and a good brew pub.  Any other suggestions?  I personally can't make Aug, but who cares about me.   :D   I vote for Sept 16 - 18 or 19.  Maybe Tim should start a location and dates poll.   ;)

 Forget polling.
 My experience is post the date. Waiting for concurrence is defeating.

There's a day ride scheduled for that weekend over by Mt. Rainier.  That's three weeks away.  Second weekend of August is the Volcano ride down by Mt. St. Helens.  Third weekend of August Darrell is going to a Jeff Beck and Buddy Guy concert Saturday evening, but nothing is scheduled for the fourth week of August, which is one week before Ride the Ribbon.  I wish I would have had time to get something done before now.  What if we had a regional in conjunction with Ride the Ribbon?  The logistics work.

And the weekend after that is Bob Rainey's Ihop ride in conjunction with the Oyster Run.

About 10,000-20,000 bikes show up to that party each year.

Mid - Sept in Republic would be good for me. 
Just about the end of the prime riding season, if weather averages hold ...

I'm always elk hunting in Sept. We need to plan for earlier in the year. It seems there is a lot of time between the Bun Cooler and other rides. Then everything is crammed into Sept.
