2016 Big Bend/Davis Mountains Ride the Twisties
« on: November 18, 2015, 10:27:08 am »
The 2016 Big Bend - Davis Mountains Ride the Twisties is on the Calendar for the 20th through the 22nd of October, 2016.

This year the Rally will be hosted at The Maverick Inn:

www.themaverickinn.com    432-837-0628

1200 E. Holland Avenue

Alpine, TX 79830

COG rooms are only blocked out until the 19th of September, 2016. Please make your reservation as soon as feasible.

SC COG will have exclusive use of the Maverick Inn which will include unlimited access to the heated pool and fire pit "after hours" once we reserve all 20 rooms.

  The Maverick Inn has great amenities and people so this year we will have the "run" of the place with their great free breakfast, free WiFi, and easy walking distance to good restaurants.

This year we will have prizes and awards at the exclusive COG Dinner to be held at 7PM on Saturday the 22nd, at :

[url=http://www.judysbreadandbreakfast.com/]www.judysbreadandbreakfast.com/
[/url]   and dinner is included as part of the registration fee for Saturday night. :celebrate:

The Big Bend and Davis Mountains regions have arguably some of the best roads and scenery for riding  :motonoises: anywhere in the SC region along with the unique geology of the Eastern most expanse of the Basins and Ranges region in the United States.



A guide and maps to the area are available to all riders at the URL below:

https://www.dropbox.com/sh/iworxlm9rg89e1g/n1O_PzO70H

Please make your reservations today and register on the COG calendar at the URL below:

https://cog.memberize.net/clubportal/EventDisplayNew.cfm?clubID=1328&EventID=227322&mo=10&tDate={d%20%272016-10-18%27}

Ride registration fee is $20 per person for COG members, and $25 for non-members which includes dinner.

I just registered and am much looking forward to this ride/meet, and now have to make hotel reservations.  I camped in Big Bend National Park a few years ago, so I'm a little bit familiar with the roads.  The 2015 national meet in Cortez was my first event (and I had a great time meeting great people).  I'm oversees right now until July 2016, and will be coming in from El Paso (short 230 mile ride) on Thursday the 20th, so if anyone wants to ride with, please let me know as I'd be more than happy to.

Hmmmm...  I need to use up 7 vacation days or I will lose them.  Lived in Austin for a couple years and always wanted to see Big Bend, but never got a chance.

4 days down from Vegas gets me a lot of good roads in AZ (including Devils Highway) and NM and puts me there on the night of the 20th.  2 days at the rally, a day of rest and 3 days back is 10 days.  2 weekend days is 8 days.

Pahrump, NV -> Payson, AZ -> Silver City, NM -> Carlsbad, NM -> Alpine, TX

Alpine, TX -> Duncan, AZ -> Prescott, AZ -> Pahrump, NV

How soon are the rooms gone?

Rooms are blocked for us until 9/19/16, All the info is on the South Central calender, we have 12 people signed up so far and room for at least 50. Come on down and see us. The Big Bend area is really nice that time of year.

Address: 2401 Texas 118,

Need a fire master? If nobody normally does it. My fires at Helen alerted NORAD to a missile launch.

If you have one, I'll just bring the Fireball.

It is actually a pretty cool covered appliance they have there so no stray embers will start a fire. It can be used even with a burn ban.

The thermal plume is modest, but the fellowship and TALL TALES (TED ADCOCK) are to be experienced.  :))
