2019 Beat the Heat (not a) Rally is a go
« on: April 03, 2019, 01:21:41 pm »
June 28-30th 2019 at Blue Ridge MC Campground   http://www.blueridgemotorcyclecamp.com/   This is a different location from last year, but BRMC does have a restaurant that serves breakfast and supper so no need to go anywhere to eat those meals.

https://cog.memberize.net/clubportal/EventDetail.cfm?clubID=1328&EventID=255261&mo=6&tDate=%7Bd%20%272019%2D06%2D03%27%7D

This is not an official COG rally but a mid summer COG get together so no supper, frills or swag offered, just a gathering of COG (and non COG) folks enjoying the mountain in hopefully cooler weather.

BRMC has cabins which need to be reserved in advance, if you are camping, no need to make reservations.  This is only a few miles from the Blue Ridge Parkway and other excellent roads in any direction.

Come on out and help me celebrate my 70th birthday  :-\  on June 28th   :beerchug:

Any questions ask here or get in touch with me or Kurt Brown.  We already have 8 signed up, so lets make it a gaggle  ;D

See some of you there.

Just ran the route thru the program, looks like 10 hours, add in some pee breaks and cig puffs... 2 gas stops; doable If I left at "dawn", hauling the trailer... full of my "Portable Hotel"... sounds like a blast, and I think I'll need to do a L/D run for S&G prior to the national...

Might be a "Econo-roll in" camping...run :great: :great: :beerchug:

If you are trailering the bike, just leave at 5am   ;D   The guy who owned it retired and his son now runs the place.  Nice guy too.

I gonna try to make it, I made the 1st two & it's Jerry's birthday. It'll be pretty iffy (doubtful) for me.  :'( I return from OTP June 18th & leave again July 14th for a tour of the New England states plus the Nationals.

It's only a 700 mile day ride for me, but I gotta get some work time in there somewhere.

i called today and made a cabin reservation.  He said that one guy has reserved 5 other cabins and he didn't know if they were COGgers or maybe another group will be there.  Doesn't matter as it is a big place.

Hopefully my son will be riding up with me for this one.   :beerchug:

Put me down for a stop by. I'm right down the road in Mill Spring NC and this would be quite doable.
Not going to be able to make the Maggie Valley rally this weekend due to still putting the '00 back together. Having company over the Easter weekend and catching s cold has not helped.
Be awesome to meet some of the COG legends.

Ironically, I have this weekend off...  It's ironic
because I never have time off coinciding with COG
activities,

Iffin' I can shmooze the following Monday off,
I'll join the crowd.   It's only 600 miles. 

Lemme see what I can do...   :beerchug:
