2014 BMWNEF Winter Rally in Starke, FL
« on: October 03, 2013, 06:03:04 pm »
WOW, this one screamed up on me. For dates of January 17-19, 2014
Registration is now open as of October 1st for this rally. We had a lot of COG members attend this last year, and our members mingle well with the BMW riders that do attend this event. There's never been an issue with bugs, and the couple of cords of wood that Firebug burns (their version of the Pope) feels pretty good. There are 489 spots left as of this morning, but you don't want to get caught snoozing on this, as it DOES fill up by December15th or so.
Please contact me with any questions about this event if you're considering going. All the COG members are in a good camping area, and we get together often for social time every night.

Yes indeed Reid, and I think I have you and (or) Jerry to thank for getting me there three years ago. A VERY good social time for all.       Al

I am signed up. We had a blast this past January.
They host an all day off road ride that is a lot of fun and challenging too. Many bikes drop out quickly.
Here is my KLR being pulled out of the abyss after entering deep sugar sand a major tank slapper and into a canal.

OK, who's signed up for this besides Mike? Looked on the web page and didn't see any names I knew. Lots of "anonymous" though! I want to know who will be there.

Hey Randy. I wonder iff'n I could ask a favor of ya. Could you pick up a six pack (or more?? :beerchug: ) of Abita ANDYGATOR and bring it along? I really like that stuff, but can't get it here. I bought it in PCB at a Publix when we were up there last month. Yummy yummy for the tummy tummy. I'll even pay ya for it, nice guy that I am. :rotflmao:

TIA

According to the Abita website you can get it at Okee-fes. 115 S Rockingham Ave in Tavares.  There are a few other places in nearby towns too.
