Smackdown at the Shack GA/FLA Border Challenge RTE
« on: October 03, 2013, 10:37:01 am »

November 2nd!!  Put this date on your calendar.  It is time again for the "Smackdown at the Shack."  This is our 5th year in a row now and is a RTE that you don't want to miss!  It is a challenge to the Floriduh gang and the Georgia folks to see who can bring the most riders.  It is held at the Shack by the Track in St. George Ga. http://www.urbanspoon.com/r/149/932917/restaurant/Georgia/Folkston/Shack-By-The-Track-St-George  Floriduh won last year by cheating and bringing too many Steve's!   We promise redemption this year and Georgia will win back the plaque.  The event is on the SECOG calendar. http://www.cog-online.org/clubportal/EventDetail.cfm?clubID=1328&EventID=176769&mo=11&tDate=%7Bd%20%272013%2D11%2D03%27%7D We will start gathering in the parking lot around 10:00.  This place has great BBQ and is cash or check only.  They do not take credit or debit.  See ya there. :beerchug: :motonoises:

This Steve will most likely not make it. We are either going on a last minute cruise or for a ride toward San Antonio. I'm on vaca from 10/30 until 11/11.

Well, there is one less Steve. :(

Y'all have fun up(or down) there.

Two of our favorite SE riding ladies can't make the ride. That's disturbing news. Being they are both from FL, maybe GA has a little more chance at getting the trophy back .      Al

I'm in for sure. Can offer up a mid Florida point (Tampa area) for folks wanting to come up from the south. Leave fairly early in the AM and stop at Steve's previous McDs location to meet up with others and motor into Ga.

Wow, who to choose. It might help if you both posted the amenities you both are offering. Personally, I'm looking for a king suite with Jacuzzi tub, fluffy towels, 50 inch flat-screen tv, free wifi, nice selection of Liqueur or Port and cigar friendly. A nice breakfast selection with gourmet coffee is also a must. But I might settle for slightly less, if the price is right.

In your case, the hosts need to know that soundproofing would be most desirable....or a good set of earplugs   :great:
