See New Post For Beat The Summer Heat Social....
« on: December 04, 2018, 03:56:39 pm »
All, a new thread has been created for the Beat The Summer Heat Social, please post there.

http://forum.cog-online.org/southeast-events/beat-the-summer-heat-social-june-28-30-2019/

===========================


We have been holding this rally the end of July up at Iron Horse Resort, but this years National Rally is that week and it is considered bad form to hold a competing rally during the National rally. Plus many of us will be at the Nationals as well.

We did not want to push it into August as that is getting to close to RWTW, so we are considering holding this rally June 28 - 30, 2019. We have not contacted Iron Horse yet as we wanted to get a feel from the SE membership if the dates would work for most. If Iron Horse can't accommodate us, we could possibly could hold it at Blue Ridge MC. Another thought was to incorporated a tour at Barber MC Museum and have a host campground with in riding distance. But Alabama in the end of June is not necessarily "beating the summer heat".

So, what say you COG members??

1. June 28-30 Iron Horse Resort or Blue Ridge MC.
2. June 28-30 Barber with Camping with in riding distance.
3. Just skip it for 2019.

I advise to skip it.  Perhaps do a "non-rally rally" that's only a meet on Friday, ride on Saturday, go home on Sunday. No registration, no fees, just show up and hang out. Saves vacation time, saves money but still gets us out of the daily grind.

I like the non rally rally idea too.  I should be riding again by May so I am up for most any weekend gathering.  BRMC has quite a few bunkhouses for those that don't want to camp too and a restaurant on site.

As far I know, those dates work and no, as fun as a Barber tour would be, that'd be more like "Embrace The Heat."

"Non-rally, rally"is ok with me.

Nothing wrong with a non-rally rally.

When we did the Kamping in the Keys a few years ago the only thing "organised" was the camp fire and I collected all of the camping fees as the KOA wanted one person to pay to get the non-profit discount.

Ok, the Beat the Heat “Social” will be June 28-30 2019. I’m up to moving it this year to BRMC. Not that I don’t like Iron Horse, but just for a change in scenery. Let me know your thoughts on changing it this year to BRMC.

I'd suggest dropping back to 28-30, saves some folks a few $$.  Who's taking it on to put on the calendar and to define the Non-rally rally?

Not to get off track here, the TAT crosses AR about 15 miles north of me. The TAT Shack is just a hour or so north west of here. Stopped by there a couple weeks ago for the 1st time.

Now back to our regular programming!  :)

We'll see about attendance. Have a bundle expected to arrive at my son's house in that time frame.....

Well Tom. You are neither a doctor nor a trained mid-wife; even your ability to boil water and/or carry towels is somewhat suspect. You would (mostly) just be in the way.  :rotflmao: ;)

You are implying that logic is a consideration. You too may now have the same opportunity to explain this to my wife. Thank you so much.  Have your protective gear handy.
