I stayed at the Campground and here is the sign for that.....



This is my rig and my bike.....


 
Sunday Registration setup etc.




Overall views of Resort amenities....







At Check-in we saw this.....





Ha Ha Tonka State Park.



















The Sandwich Social got moved to the campground -










Many came over via the resort shuttle.......















Award for farthest bike travel???


Next Day rode to MO capital in Jefferson....



Then Dinner on a Cruise......



Dave Grant and I were the only 2 to ride to the cruise.  :great:  Even had someone admiring our bikes.......


























Went on a 20 question ride - Had to find 20 answers and this was one of them - then had to give the date in numbers not letters.















Many went out on the roof deck - nice views.....









Had a bike show.  Only 1 C10 and only 4 C14's showed up in the Concours sections.  5 Other bikes showed up too, for a total of 10.
Bike on the far left won 4 awards. Nice.


Then we had Dinner and the awards.  Some music and a Keynote speaker and then finally the 2018 Location.







I had a great time and appreciate all the hard work that Gary and Kevin did PLUS all the others that made this Rally work so well.
They had 3 movie nights which I went to one of them and it was very good. 
The roads were in very good shape (especially compared to where I come from) and there was little traffic most of the time.
Other than a few brief rain showers while riding (it cooled us off for a bit) the only rain was at night and the days were nice and sunny.

Well for anyone that didn't/couldn't make it to this years rally I hope the above images give you an idea of what a great time we had.

Karl....thanks for posting the pics.  Denise and I obviously missed a great time.

I got a kick out of this place.  If you need stuff chances are they have it.  At least according to the signs.

Leo, Thanks for all the great pics!

I saw the sign to Tightwad on my ride to the Iconium Store. Almost went 12 miles out of my way just for the pic.  ;)

I'm still getting mine sorted out and cleaned up so I can upload them for display.

If anyone happens to have a good action shot that will work in portrait (higher than wide) format, let me know. I was having too much fun riding to get any and the cover of the next Concourier is a big, blank slate at the moment. Here's your chance to get a picture in print!

Tom, I loved your pics. You channeled Keith well in those — I saw the pics before the return address and I actually did think they were from Keith for a second. They're in the running, but I thought I'd see what else is out there.

And to go with your older building, here's one of mine. This was across the street from Boniface Catholic Church in Koeltztown, one of the stops on the Challenge ride.

Here's a link to some of mine. This is only part of what I've done; I'm still correcting the color and weeding out unusable ones, so this album may grow and change over the next few days.

I was told that there is a YouTube video of Rev Rider and the COG Land Yokel Band doing their Great FANTASTIC Sing along at the national.
Does anyone know where to find it?

Ride safe, Ted

Those legs are beyond white--more of a grey.....http://forum.cog-online.org/Smileys/FantasticSmileys/smiley.gif
