Glad I read this thread tonight. I just called the Inn and made a reservation for the rally for Thursday thru Saturday. Sounded like there were still a few rooms left for the COG folks. I've got vacation to burn by July 1st or loose it.  Looking forward to attending this rally. I usually only get to go to the RWTW. Now I get to go to both this year.  :)

Now going to 33 and below tomorrow morning. Dontcha love Spring?  :-\
Don't fret, though, because freezing temps are usually gone by mid-April - And the host for the event is a hotel!!! With an indoor restaurant/bar.  :beerchug: And fresh coffee.  :)

Plenty of time left to register and get a room. Look forward to seeing you folks soon!

I had 76F on Saturday while working on the truck.
It's 32F with snow right now.
It's spring in WV...all 4 seasons in a week isn't all that uncommon.

Saw in a past post that all the rooms with a king were all taken. Earlier  today I exchanged my room with a king for one with two twins. My nephew may ride up. So it may be available.

Currently not planning on going as hotel rallies really are not my deal. With that in mind, how many folks plan on camping? And at which campground?

I'd like to see my SE brethren @ SRitV, but I committed to the HMR and I'm trying to fit both in.

That would mean I'd be on the road for 2 wks and my 6 y.o. would not be happy with daddy (and frankly, I would miss her a ton).

I'll know by the end of the week, but I'll have my camping stuff for Cliff's, so I'm kinda with SteveJ on the hotel thing...more economical too.

We typically do camping events, but wanted to try something a bit different this time. Some of SECOG' s  previous rallies in the Spring had cold weather issues, particularly as we got further north of Atlanta. So, to add variety to the venues we thought we'd give a hotel rally a try. Further ride for me, to boot  :motonoises:

Yep. The rotating location and  type of events for the Spring rally was a group brain-storm last fall by the whole leadership team and we're gonna have a GOOD TIME in the Valley!!!  (C'mon Shawn, you know you're filthy rich!! You DO live in a resort state, you know...)   ;D

Tom, I'm totally with ya...not having to setup/breakdown camp / freeze your arse off at night, is a blessing.  For me its just a matter logistics and economics.  I'll try and work some magic.

Ron, yes, I do live in a resort state, but I'm usually in a confused state. ;D

That's why ______(insert deity here) invented small electric heaters and extension cords. It's awesome waking up to 70* inside the tent and looking outside to see frost on the bike.

Making coffee in the vestibule is a bonus.

Just to toss this out there, I have a room to myself with two beds for three nights. If someone needs a room and don't mind sharing a room to split the cost contact me.

Steve, Shawn, if your wanting to go and need to stash a vehicle and/or trailer, you can park it at my house. I'm about 3.5 hours / 190 miles from the hotel. I'm heading up Thursday morning around 9am ish.

As SWMBO is not attending, I have a King room but could change it to 2 doubles if someone wants to share a room.

We are also heading out to the HMR the following Wednesday afternoon and can host anyone for a few days doing the same.

You can also arrive here early, all though you may be subject to work detail.  >:D I'm sure they'll be a few others early.

Hey Kurt, your signature has wrong info. HMR is 2 - 5th, not 3 - 6th.  :nananana:

Ok, I have a King room I am going to cancel as Kay is not going and I found a roommate to split the cost of a double room. Does anyone want the King?
