It is rumored that Teri Conrad, editior of ROK's magazine ACCELERATE, may be there too.  She may have caught SECOG fever at RWTW.   :motonoises:

Hmmm, sounds serious.  The only known cure is a combination therapy of great people, campfires, and adult beverages...

Well, that, and an odd joke or two, of course!  :)

Gloom,,,, Looks like I'm out for the Ride. >:(
It's just to close to my return from the National to Travel that far.
(In other words, no money and no time)

I was really looking forward to seeing the Trace, :great:    the group,  :beerchug:    and "the dance".  (NOT)  :-\

Ride safe, Ted

Ted,
 Just dig a little deeper for the time & money. This was a very good ride last year, great location, food & roads. Even with the dancing I can see this ride growing in size over time. Very good turn out last year for a first time ride.

 Anybody that's on the fence about this ride should reconsider, AL & his crew do a bang up job.

After attending the VBR, Nationals, Spider ride & then the Trace I will be stretched very thin for time & money. But what the heck life's short, ride hard!

Yep I'm ready, more than you know. Wife say's I haven't been riding enough & I'm getting cranky, so yes it's time to go.
 You're the one living large, retired, riding months at a time all fat & happy. But for 6 week's I'll be pretending to be living large with a big fat smile on my face!

Registration for this event is running a little slow, so here are a few teasers to get you off your hands and signed up;
Teri Conrad, editor-in-chief of ROK is signed up, so here's a chance to get to know a great West coast gal that is an accomplished rider, writer and photographer. There's a great BBQ that's catered for us at our rally site, and the cost is built into your magnanimous sum of $9.99 registration. There will be an opportunity to have you and your bike photographed by a professional. It could be your chance to really look good. We have professional entertainment coming in for Saturday night. That was VERY popular last year. There's a free burger and dog supper on Friday night. Great riding in the middle of the Natchez Trace Parkway. Great and inexpensive camping. The possibility for financial freedom by winning the SECOG 50/50 raffle. Being with friends for food, frivolity, fun and fire.    Al

Al,

Maybe part of the problem is that the contact number on the calender (800-562-8693) is to a "Talk" line, one of America's Most Exciting, by the way. The number from the web site is (800-562-2793). You may want to change the number.

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.

Since this thread is getting a little long, and I can't seem to correct the erroneous phone numbers, this will help with that. Don't forget to mention COG to get your 25% discount on ALL camping options.   Al

Has anyone reserved a cabin yet and have an open spot for someone who's willing to split the cost?  :)


Hey Al, you camping or renting a cabin?

I think someone needs to call Thousand Trails KOA to make sure their people know about our group. I spoke to two ladies, one yesterday and one today and neither was aware of our group. The one yesterday was suppose to call me back but never did. Called this morning and basically made her talk to the business manager so she could book the cabin and apply the discount. They seem a little disorganized.

The office # is 931-796-3212. Ask for Jana she knows of our group & the 25% discount.

There you go. I just emailed Jack about this and came back to the page to find this. Call the office and talk to Jana to eliminate any confusion. She did this last year for us.    Al

The registration page has been corrected to show only the office number, which is Jana's phone. Had to get a forum administrator to make the change, as it wouldn't allow me to make it. Thanks for everyone's input.    Al

Well, guess I'm the moron then. But, in my defense, the COG registration page does have "Please use the 1-800 number, and mention you're with the COG group to get your discount."  So, maybe I'm the confused moron or maybe its just old timers setting in.

Sorry, but I guess my expectations are too high as the industry I work in is very customer service oriented. I was more concerned with the lack of follow up with the first person. But on the positive side, they did have all my contact information in their system from last year.

But no worries, I do have a cabin reserved.
