Please use this link to get to the SECOG Fall Rally/Natchez Trace Pkwy campground map & info.
Please call the campground at 931-796-3212, ask for Jana, and mention you're with the COG group to get your discount. We have all of the 'tent camping' and cabins 5-10 reserved. We'll all be together in the same area.
Registration will be done through the SE calendar for September 14th date.
Email me for any issues or questions.      Al

As an update to the last post; COG discounts can be had by mentioning you ARE with COG. Tent camping is now $ 14.00 a night, and cabin price is $40.00 a night. $10.00 member registration , $14.00 camping = something everybody should be able to swing. Please reserve your overnight choice soon, especially if you're going to want a cabin.
When you book your cabin, please post on forum if you're looking to split a cabin with someone.     Al

I booked a cabin and would be happy to share it and split the costs with someone.  According to Al, there are 2 double beds.

Al, I've wanted to do a Natchez Trace COG Ride for years.
Unfortunately I can't make this one as I have another trip/cruise scheduled.

I tried to arrange aTrace ride myself years ago, but didn't work out.
Is a Trace Ride scheduled regularly?

Please let me know if the Ride is done again....


Ya'll enjoy the ride!
Ride safe, Ted

Ted, anyone in the SE could nave answered this one, but I just happen to be here.
This is the 1st time SECOG has done this ride. Now, that's not to say that we won't do it again, but with my interest in geographical diversity within the SE, it may not come back as our Fall Rally or at this time of year.
It would have been great to see you again, and we're hoping to pull in 50-60 riders for this event.
Thanks for all of your help at the national.    Al

I'm in. For those interested, here's a route from my place sans slab that also takes sweet advantage of a great BBQ location in Scottsboro. Nothing like arriving well fed...

OK, I give up, I've been staring at that site for 20 minutes trying to figure out where the link for the COG registration is, what does "old place card mean? The form was not in my current Concourier.

I can't go, but I'll be watching for AARs from those who attend. I've been wanting to ride the Trace for years. I already have a line on one good BBQ joint and a campground from previous posts.

Ya'll have a great time but don't forget us "armchair" riders back home.  :beerchug:

Hey guys,
Just checked the COG calendar and the Sept 14 link to the rally is up and running:

Your link works.
The link in the original post is to the campground, not to the event on the calender as implied (yeah, took me a day or so to figure that out, I think, still not sure?).

Tom's link above gets to the event sign-up on the calender where you can register. The "other" place card on the calender is not there anymore either, so scratch that reference?, just the one stop shopping to go to in order to register.  Whew,  I think that is right..... :motonoises:

Is there any good twistie type roads in the area?  I have ridden some of the Natchez Trace and  60 miles was all I could take.  I hate to say it, but it bored me

Southeast of the campground there are some pretty good roads.  Look on Google maps for Waterloo Alabama.  It's right on the Tennessee River.  County road 45 out of there is a great road for about 15 miles.  Also a good spot to eat at the Riverwalk Cafe.

With over 35 COG members in Tennessee, maybe we'll get someone to answer that call.  Any of you Nashville Cats get down south to ride?
We'll have some good state maps available at the registration table. Doesn't help you much now.   Al
