"Final Fall Fling" Ride
« on: October 08, 2018, 06:35:34 pm »
Ok folks here is an opportunity to get in one more ride before the holidays. The "Final Fall Fling" ride will be held in Clinton Arkansas on November 9th &, 10th. The hotel location is the Best Western Hillside Inn in Clinton. Their number is (501) 745-4700. I have blocked off
5 rooms for the ride but more can be blocked if needed. Rate is around $77/night. Mention you are with the COG group when calling. All of their rooms are ground level so easy parking and access to your bike. So if you didn't get to make Jacks ride or Big Bend join us for this one. Looking forward to some good Arkansas twisties and visiting with friends.

I'm looking forward to this ride.
Can't make the Big bend Ride, and I want 1 more good ride before it starts to get cold...

This is going to be a good one as it's in a Prime riding area!
   It's right down the road from Jacks....
          See ya'll there???

Ride safe, Ted

Another ride down there would be stupendous! But it is peak rut up here(WI), I more than likely will be sitting in a tree than on a motorcycle. But you never know.

I understand the need to hunt during that period, but also know it will too cold to ride soon and this may be the last chance for you and others to ride Arkansas this year.

Cliff sed he will try to be there to ride with us, if that inspires you any?

No inspiration problems, riding with Ted and Jim is enough inspiration. No guarantees, need to watch the weather as the time approaches.

I figured just the opportunity to hang out with us would be incentive enough.

If it would help I can get Ted to make a scrape out behind the hotel.

Well there appears to be some interest in this ride within the NC group. It snowed a bit here yesterday, and was 18 deg F this AM, so yes the weather is kind of unpredictable. Plus I need to start sitting in a tree, and get the deal done.

Yes, have Ted put a deer scrape in the motel parking lot, but maybe tell him to "freshen"  it after sundown, so he does not end up in the clink.

If the weather is somewhat reasonable, there will be a few of us coming down.

Let me know if I need to block off more rooms.

Consider the parking lot scrap'd and freshened every night.

I may even do a rub to make you feel at home.
  err, ahh, err, wellll, err,,,,,,,, maybe I'd better be more specific.  :-[
         I'll butt my err "Jim's" head against a tree and rub some bark off.  :great:

Ride safe, Ted

PS: Need beer to assure "freshening" product.
      Head butting (and fights) cause head aches.
         Need beer to make my Jim's head feel better.
        This is a dry county so come prepared.

Well as far as I know, the NC group has reserved 3 rooms thus far. Not sure who all you have coming right now.
By the way, I would entertain the possibility of a room-mate.

PIngggggggggggggg..      This Ride is not viewable in the Event Calendar..
Working to keep this discussion open.
  I doubt many that are not on the Forum are aware of it.
     Looking for folks to be there to enjoy Arkansas with us..

Ride safe, Ted

PS: Is there some way to get this Ride added to the SC Event Calendar or send out a message?

Why anyone would want to go ride with a Skuzz-Ball like Ted is beyond me......but the the Arkansas roads more than make up for it. Besides, it's easy to run off and leave him.

Register for the ride, the count is important because I am only going to ship Ride Premiums for registered attendees.

I have a previous commitment for these dates, but take heed of the DEER in ARKANSAS in NOVEMBER.  :violent-smiley-007:


Jim and Ted and good hosts and will buy your dinners and beverages!!!!!! :beerchug: :103: :hee20hee20hee:

Ok I am registered. And just to clarify, Ted and I probably can't buy your meals and beverages, but we will share ours with you if you're nice to us.  :great:

I am waiting for the date to get a little closer to sign up, and I am sure others are too.
 I have been spreading the rumor,  that the ride/rally sheet was started so you and Jim could get a head count for handing out T-shirts at the pig-roast Saturday(9/10) night.

Ok, ok,,,, ya'll win.   :-[
If someone will bring a BBQ pit I just confirmed that the Motel has a Grill that we "may" be able to use.
  {Their checking now}
I'll bring some "Hot Dogs" {for the pig roast}, some buns, and I'll get Jim ta steal some Mustard from McDonalds....   :great:
I think I even have some leftover "OtP" T Shirts that I can give out. (pretty sure I still have 3 / size small)
I'll ask Jim to bring "some" beer..
Ya'll bring some tater chips etc....

NOTE: The ride is in 2 weeks.  Jim won't be able to hold the rooms much longer at the discounted price.
          If your planning to go {or thinking about going},,, book your room now and/or let us know so he can "try" to hold more rooms...

There ya go Ted I registeered for the event. Looking forward to coming down but attendance is weather dependent - I aint comin if its gonna a rain! how much rain is too much is yet to be determined haha. Imagine the weather guessers will have it sorted out to be 50-50 and leave me in a quandry by end of next week.
