2018 National Rally Location
« on: February 09, 2017, 12:45:58 am »
We're closing in rapidly on the Sho Me Mo Twisties National Rally.  :)  I'm sure it's gonna be great but now we need to start the speculation as to the location of the NEXT National Rally.

If history is any guide, the location will be within either the SC Region or the NE Region.  :confuse:  In the SC Region, how 'bout Norman, OK?  In the NE Region, I suspect it might be in Rhode Island.  :great:

Rhode Island would be cool...
COG at the Breakers has a nice ring to it  :beerchug:
<--- is there any mechanism in place to deal with a non- productive, antagonistic, former non- member such as this?

Norman Oklahoma?  Are you nuts?    :-\



I'm voting for Greensburg, Kansas.  COG at the World's Largest Hand Dug Well.
Or if it's Maine...  It's gotta be at the world's smallest desert at Freeport.  I got dibs on first giant camel ride.

Hmmmm. Let's see; the National Rally is (typically) held during the summer months. Chiricaua National Monument is in southern Arizona. Southern Arizona isn't normally described as "cool" during the summer months.  :truce:

Probably true dat.  Used to play in the snow there. I lived in Wilcox in the 70s and it just doesn't get that hot. Msax temp for June is 90, but average high is 80.

I'm voting for Greensburg, Kansas.  COG at the World's Largest Hand Dug Well.

Plus - all the accommodations would be new...(dark humor...)

And, you're not too far from the Dalton Gang Hideout in Meade, KS (a recommended stop if you're passing through).
Ride safe(r).

Phoenix Arizona is the obvious choice.  The hotel rates really dip in the summer for some reason...

hmmm, more fuel,,

COG just helped Charlie get back to riding, and they sent him "Over the Pond" last year...
  So; I suspect he'd be willing to do something for COG.
        Mebbe he'll volunteer to be the Rally Master??

Aww heck, {to save time}.
  I hearby "volunteer" Charlie to be the National Rally Master in 2018..  >:D

I think he's going to be a little late to the game if it is getting announced in June. :-[

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.
