I'd be shocked if who ever is planning 2018 has not already presented to the BOD as the membership should receive an 18 month "save the date" notification. I'd bet that it will be held in August. If it is the NE, I hope it will be the southern part like VA, WV or even PA would be nice.

Yupp, Someone knows...
But we have to speculate.
It's a COG yearly ritual!!

Ride safe, Ted

I have it on good authority that it will NOT be in my backyard.  Not that I wanted it that way, but THE authority around here told me I'd be... uh... "camping out" for good if I even proposed it.  Nixed... just like that.  And I had big plans too.   >:(



YES DEAR, I'M COMING. NO, I'M NOT TALKING TO ANYONE.

I gotta go.

So, if the schedule holds it should be the NE turn:

2011 - NE
2012 - SC
2013 - NW
2014 - 25th Anniversary / NE & SE
2015 - SW
2016 - SE
2017 - NC
2018 - ??

I'd be shocked if who ever is planning 2018 has not already presented to the BOD as the membership should receive an 18 month "save the date" notification. I'd bet that it will be held in August. If it is the NE, I hope it will be the southern part like VA, WV or even PA would be nice.

hmmmmm... Kinda Like the Marietta Ohio area?  ( I know, I know, Ohio IS NC zone) but the only thing seperating Ohio from the NE region, is crossing a bridge over the river on either side of the corner of Ohio, at Marietta....
extremely good riding, day rides into multiple other states, all with awesome roads along the boarders.... hmmmm...
I guess I have to talk to my Ohio Members here, and see what they say, and if they are willing to share.... :rotflmao: :great: :great: :motonoises: :motonoises: :motonoises:

I know a couple members from my "old" zone, N.E. area, that really love this area also, and are "rally miester" approved, hmmmmm....

ok, now I have to make phone calls... and get a job. :-X :-[ ::) :rotflmao: :rotflmao: :rotflmao:

It's the NE turn?  Hershey PA. A Tourist town with plenty of venues including Chocolate, Hershey Park, and riding that spans from the mountains to the farm lands, to the forrests, to the Chesapeake Bay.

Could be the first one third rally in Canada, eh? :-\
2Fast, I fixed it for you.

We have had the National in Canada twice already.

  • June 1992 - "International Friendship Rally" - Western National in Banff, Alberta
  • June 1997 - "COG-motion Along the Ocean" - Traveling Rally in Atlantic Canada: New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island & Nova Scotia

  I think an interesting location for the next National in Canada would be Radisson, Québec.  It has three hotels and a campground so I think it would be able to handle everyone that chooses to attend the rally.

Interesting choice having been there a few years ago. I even went to the mall in Chisasibi. Rode the c-10 in the tidal zone of the Arctic Ocean. A c-14 would have a tough time making it without a fuel cell, 240 miles between gas on the James Bay Road. Brush up on your Cree and/or French.

Good ride, though. Met lots of cool folks.

About 4400 miles round trip. Let's go.

I may have missed it with all this frivolity going on, but has the date for 2018 been set?  I thought we got the date the first of the year and the location at the national announcement.

It's been awhile since we did one there... (I think)

Oregon/Washington??

Ride safe, Ted

Thanks Ted, throw the job of putting on the Nat's to the new AD. :truce:

Better than Canada I suppose they won't let me in. :(

I also sure that you have a "great" route that you can send the unsuspecting travelers on.
