NINE short weeks!!   :motonoises:

 :-\
And it's 5-8" tomorrow with freezing rain and sleet.
Wondering if I can fit a plow to the front of the wing, cause there is NO way I'm trailering a bike.
Ever.

1) On trip to my first ever overnight rally (pre-COG) stopped in Dyersburg, TN to let the storm pass. Clear sailing the rest of the way.
2) On way home from work several years ago stopped on side of US 27 to let the twister pass before proceeding to drive home. "Let" may not be the best choice of words here...

It does not suck.  :great:

Then their is the trifecta in September with RWTW, Spider, and some sort of rally in ARK. Being retired does help with scheduling.

See ya at Cliff's.

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?

Steve,
From page one:
There are also a number of camping options close by. Two nice options among the many available are:
Winngray Campground  26 Winngray Ln, Waynesville, NC 28785  winngraycampground.com
Pride Resort & RV Campground  4394 Jonathan Creek Rd, Waynesville, NC 28785 pridervresort.com.
These are about 5 miles out from Rally Central.

Thanks Tom. I'm trying to get an idea of which campground and how many will be there.

Anyone with a hotel reservation backing out of this?
Not sure what else is going on in town that weekend, but there are no rooms left across any of the hotels.
Since I'm planning on attending, and you know that means rain all weekend, I'd like to spend the nights indoors.
If you're looking to keep the rain away...I understand.  :nananana:
I'll just make reservations for the Nationals instead >:D

When calling to reserve a room tell the hotel you are with COG. I reserved my room yesterday and was told there were still rooms available in the block we had reserved.

Thanks

Hey, keep your calendars clear for the 2019 SECOG Spring Rally in the Valley taking place April 26-28 in Maggie Valley, North Carolina. This event will be hosted at the Maggie Valley Inn and Conference Center. Maggie Valley offers lots of reasons to bring that significant other along for the trip. They will have plenty to do on and/or off the bike, AND they get to meet some of the finest people in all of COG-dom. Heck, they might even want to join themselves!

More information and online registration is available at:
https://cog.memberize.net/clubportal/EventDetail.cfm?clubID=1328&EventID=255205&mo=4&tDate=%7Bd%20%272019-04-09%27%7D

The Maggie Valley Inn is the Rally host. The location has a restaurant, swimming pool, and outdoor Tiki Bar. Refer to COG when you register and get special rates of $79/night for reservations of three nights or more, and $89/night for reservations of two nights or less.

There are also a number of camping options close by. Two nice options among the many available are:
Winngray Campground  26 Winngray Ln, Waynesville, NC 28785  winngraycampground.com
Pride Resort & RV Campground  4394 Jonathan Creek Rd, Waynesville, NC 28785 pridervresort.com

And let's not forget the area attractions which include the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Wheels Through Time Motorcycle Museum, the nearby Blue Ridge Parkway, Cherokee Indian Reservation (and Harrah's Casino!), among others.

That is all for now folks! Keep an eye out for future additions to this thread.

Reservations (and registration) made!! See y'all in the Valley!!!
