Just a heads up on the SECOG Fall Rally/Natchez Trace Parkway Ride.
It’s not too early to start making you plans to attend!  :great:

http://www.cog-online.org/clubportal/EventDetail.cfm?clubID=1328&EventID=176776&mo=9&tDate=%7Bd%20%272013%2D09%2D16%27%7D

The contact number was listed wrong on the calender.
The correct number is 800-562-2793.
Al should be correcting this on the calender soon!

Thanks Kurt (MotoCommuter) for pointing this out!

Some of the above statements may or may not be true.
Has anyone tried to bark commands at a retired police lieutenant.
It don't work. More like begging & pleading IMO.
Thanks Jack, for all of your work.                   Al

A few show up normally on Thursday for these events and get a head start.  The majority probably still come in on Friday...  Each day everyone just gets up and goes riding!  You will enjoy!

Does anyone know what the cabins rent for? I looked on their site ( http://koa.com/campgrounds/hohenwald/ ) , but didn't see it, but I could be blind.

You have to do a reservation search for those dates.  $50.00 a night for a cabin that sleeps 4.  $75.00 a night for one that sleeps 8.  We had one of the cabins that sleeps up to 4 last year.  Really nice. :great:

Does everyone stay at the KOA, or is there a suggested Motel (nearby)?
Missed it last year.  I plan to do better this time!

I checked with Janna at the NTWP.  She advised that cabins 1-10 are being renovated but we can get the cabins right next to them so that we can be in the same area and the tent campers can camp in the same space as last year.  To make reservations you can call the ranger station at 931 796-3211 or the office 931 796-3212 or go on line at http://koa.com/campgrounds/hohenwald/ .  Be sure to tell them you are with the COG rally so she will know to give you the group rate.  Kenny Durham will be singing for us again on Saturday night after the BBQ dinner.  Gwynn has put up 13 gallons blueberries for more cobblers and breakfast goodies.  Boss AL will be buying the beer whether he knows it or not so everyone please come and make him buy a lot.

Hey gents.  My first time on the forum.  I was thinking of attending the Fall Rally and had some questions.  I have 35yrs riding experience, not offended by anything and enjoy a cold beer.   What should I expect at the event?  Will there be a lot of riding?  I live in Tampa and dont want to drive up to sit all day.  What about lodging and meals?  What does the majority do?  Looking forward to some replies.......  Kawiboy

Hey Kawiboy..come on up.  Great back roads and scenic highways to ride, lots to see, Jack Daniels and a couple more distilleries not far away.  Several motorcycle shops with lots of vintage stuff...great ride up the end of the Natchez Trace to the Lovelace Cafe which is not far from downtown Nashville.  Last year there was never a dull moment with lots of great folks attending.  You can camp or rent a cabin and we have a reserved area just for us. The food and entertainment is fantastic on Saturday night.  The local Kawasaki shop has an open house and possibly a demo C-14 to try out.  Plenty of coffee each morning...and my wife makes biscuits or something for a snack before we ride out.  Al builds a great campfire every night and some of us have down a few cold ones.

I had a great time last year, injured back and everything. I'm going to try my best at getting down there again this year, back is good but as I type this there's a cast on my left wrist from a procedure last week, should be good by then.  Hope to see you all again this year.

We have professional entertainment on Saturday night, and I think it DOES have a banjo in the group. I'll have to check with Jack McVickers on that.    Al
