Never too early to start planning for this...

I'm thinking of getting into town early and the YO Ranch Hotel is booked up the weekend before the Rally.  I was thinking of the Best Western Sunday House or the Holiday Inn Express.  Anybody stay at and/or know about either of these?

I tried arranging an early {Sat} arrival myself.
Even tried to talk them into it "at ' the "YO" while we were there last month.
  Nooo way a room will be available on Sat. {as another event is going on}.

Every year, COG has an event down the road in Hunt Texas {at the River Inn}.
       Everyone {including our wife's} like the River Inn!!
              If some want to arrive a day early, that might be a good pre-National option...    :06:

Ride safe, Ted

Just made reservations @ YO  :beerchug:
As a new member with my first Kaw, I am looking forward to this event and meeting you all.
will be coming from the Waco area and if anyone comes through Waco or around the area, I would like to ride with you the rest of the way..

Are you talking about Sunday, June 10th?  If so, I just spoke with our contact at the YO last week, and there were still a number of our blocked rooms available.  Make sure when contacting them, that you inform them that you are with COG.  If you still have a problem getting a room on Sunday the 10th, let me know.

I made my reservations a couple of days ago referencing the COG block and requesting an arrival on Sunday. No problem at all. I didn't ask about earlier dates, though.

I reckon I had better get my reservation made too before the rooms run out.  Hey, all the early arrivals can just show up at Hub's house and crash. He won't mind.  >:D >:D >:D

I extended to checking in on Sunday the 10th successfully.  Thanks Fred.

I still think I may get in to town on the 8th, not sure yet.

I checked out the River Inn.  Looks like a nice place, but the price online was $170+ per night!  :-\

Arghhh!! That's because it is prime season for them.
               Others are available in the area, including a bike friendly place...

I'm all set too. Got reservations starting on Sunday and just now signed up for the rally. Got the hat too. The last hat I bought that cost that much was a Stetson.   ;)  Maybe I'll bring it along too.  It ought to look right at home in Texas.   :)

COG Nation,

Made my hotel reservation a few weeks ago.  Glad to see my neighbor to the north of Lincoln, Nebraska will be attending also.  See you in Texas Jerry!! :) :)

Yay! Alright, Chris! I know Bob and Linda are signed up too, and we had a new guy at breakfast last Saturday who said he was going to sign up soon. Don from Blair is still on the fence.

Rev,

Unknown at this point in time. My wife *may* ride with me as far as Tulsa to visit a friend there while I am at the rally. If she does I won't have room in the roadster for my guitar. I doubt she'd want to hold it in her lap all the way to Tulsa. She hasn't made a commitment to the trip yet, so a solid plan B is probably warranted.   ;)

Thanks!

Heheh... My wife says that I only have two faults. I don't listen... and something else.    ::)

I'm not going to ship my guitar anywhere. Period   :-X

I need to talk to Bob this Saturday at our monthly breakfast, but he may be willing to help me get my guitar to the rally. 

Stay tuned.   ;)

I know the stores and manufacturers ship them all the time, but that's before "I" own them.  I'd never ship one I liked and why ship one you don't?  I have no good luck at shipping anything I'm really fond of or that is valuable.  If you can transport it somehow, great.  If not, we'll manage.   :beerchug:
