The club has had a tradition of announcing next year's rally dates to allow folks to pencil it in and plan vacation as needed.  A little birdie has told me the dates for the 2018 COG National Rally will be June 11 - 14, 2018.

Sure... dates depend greatly on organizer, venue availability and pricing, weather, and other things. Here is a chronology of past national rallies.

I see a trend since I joined in fall 2013.  Someday I'll retire and be free in June.

Hmmm... Monday thru Thursday. Interesting. 

Now that I am retired I have the time off to go. But now I have different limitations.   :-[

Will have to play it by ear. Lots of time between now and then.

June works for me! (I don't hold vacation in mid July or August yet with 30 plus years of service and less than 5 years away from retirement.)

I think the trend toward June is driven by pricing at the venues.  Most all venues go way up in July and August since they can get it.  That is why school needs to be year round but allowed to miss one month a year.  Then maybe the prices would not jump.

That and even more so the tendency to be somewhat less HOT in June almost anywhere in the country.

I find it interesting that the OP gave me some static about hosting the 2016 National in June, yet the next two are also being held in June. Something regarding school still being in session. The majority of the GA schools get out around Memorial Day and start back around the first week of August. If a National was held in August, we probably wouldn't attend as my better half would be back in school.

Weather, Location, Cost, Availability. The 4 cards in the deck. Shuffle as you see fit. Some of these are the same card with 2 sides just to mess with your head. We going NE in 18 Steve? The rumor mills are running full tilt. I'm gonna have to buy tires dammit. And get my Jersey turn pike pass.  :beerchug: :)

Mark, with you being on the Board, you should know where it is being held, right??

If I have to ride through NY or NJ, we'll probably pass on 2018. But if it is in VA/WV/PA, we will probably attend.

just to counter-balance Kurt  :nananana:  if we do it in the NE, I'd say the farther north the better.  I've never ridden that area of the country, so getting to see more of it would be nice.  besides, if it IS NE, I KNOW Denise will make every effort to get out of work to go.   :)

NE eh?

I realize that Canada is out for logistical and legal reasons, what with border crossings, passport requirements etc. (and also for you gun-totin' folks  :truce:)  but some where northerly (Upstate NY, VT, or NH) would be awesome.  This is strictly selfish on my part, since the extra days riding to/from the rally (when it was further away) made it a no-go for me.  However my gain would be someone else's pain...  :(

Though it can be scenic...

Oh well....

If your hinting that maybe we could do a National in Canada someday?
"YES"!!!  Someone put it on, and folks will be there!

By the way.
COG National; June 11 - 14, 2018 (somewhere)
We'll be there!!

Ride safe, Ted  (retired)

PS: Is it too early to start guessing where it will be?
      I suggest West Coast!!
        If so, {Sport Rider} Denise can fly in...
