Registrations is now open so please sign up as soon as you can so we can prepare for the Saturday night supper.

It is still up in the air at this point with the Covid 19 virus still hanging around as to whether we will be able to eat inside or have to do as is being done currently which is get your food at a window outside and find a place to eat.  There are plenty of picnic tables located around the grounds. 

Hopefully things will be better by September and be back to "normal"

See you in September  :great:

Anyone not wanting to camp and no room reserved check out Kennedy Creek Resort ?  Its just up the road maybe mile or so on 180 .  They have a couple of bunk houses with two twin bed in them .  They may have one available for that date with RWTW . Just an FYI.

Hope to be making this as a new SECOG member!

Great  :beerchug:  Looking forward to meeting you

We met.
Came up one year in a White Ford edge and you told me to take those 4 wheels to the field. Ended up camping in it. Could get Al from hugging the keg so I could grab a beer. Daytona Mikey pulled up trailing his bike behind a Prius

Please keep in mind the last day to sign up is August 28th so I can get a good head count for the Saturday banquet.

I will be at TWoS on August 20th and confirm all the details for the event. At the present they are preparing meals, using social distancing and no eating inside the lodge restaurant.  They take your order inside, then hand it to you out of a side window and seating is outside, either on the deck or at one of the picnic tables or wherever  you want to eat.  I know this is not what we wanted, but in these virus times, we have to make changes.

I am looking forward to another great rally and seeing everyone there  :beerchug:

Just had the same experience, but keep after it. I finally got both Katie and me registered. Yeah,  the new website ought to be much better.

Jerry reminded me the other day that the deadline to register is coming up fast, so if you're coming, please sign up. TWoS will feed us, but I don't want to pay for a lot of  food we don't eat and I also don't want anyone who wants to eat, to go hungry. The TWoS staff buys food for the number we plan for, so we need to know.

You might want to know the Covid situation in Georgia. It's fairly widespread, but in my opinion, part of the high number of cases reported is a huge testing effort. It's starting to shift out of metro Atlanta somewhat. The media is slowly "quieting down" about it and now local attention is shifting to what will happen when school starts. That's what you'll see in the news mostly right now. The mountain areas like Suches are pretty "normal." Schools and colleges are starting back at the moment, so there's  a  lot of coverage about that. 

I look at the Atlanta paper dashboard and the trend lines for hospitalizations/deaths appear to be headed down on all but new cases and like I said, I think that's partly because of more widespread testing. We'll see.

What I do know, is that the big gas stations (QT, RaceTrac,etc) are open along with restrooms even though many of the fast food places are takeout only. We've no trouble finding place for pit stops, fuel, and food. All the grocery stores and big boxes like Walmart are open with restrooms, etc.. The Beat the Heat Rally in NC a few weeks ago was a similar result.

So, come on up, just socially distance, wash your hands, wear a mask when you need to. Ride. :motonoises:

Cliff, I keep looking for your event in October on the calender to sign up for it, but I can't find it. Each time I go to the south central area I get a 404 system error. Sorry for being off topic.

Reg'd.

May be just a contribution overall if I'm threatened to be really lonely upon return to home! May be hanging out in the textile Hilton for an additional 2 weeks AFTER the event. But, if CINC-WIFE is ok with me going, I should be there. Fingers crossed, but not super hopeful.

Hopefully, none of the pre-registrations will be lost in the changeover from Memberize to the new system at the end of this month. A couple of members that pre-registered last year were not on the list at the event sign-in if I remember! :beerchug:

I will copy and print out the list of registrants prior to the change over and bring it with me.

I'll be staying at Stony Fork USFS campground. They have some campsites that are not reserveable so I can snag one on Tues or Wed and hang out over Labor Day weekend. Anyone care to show up and do some nice riding, you're quite welcome.

I'm off Sunday Aug 6th through the 14th...  Dammit Steve.....  When you breakin' camp in VA?
This might be doable for a couple of days then scoot to the Wolf...  Probably a 13hr day getting there.  :eek:

I can stick around until Wed the 9th in VA instead of Tuesday. ASSuming you meant September.  :) :beerchug:
That would give you three nights up there and two days of "local" riding.
Google shows 661 miles, and a time of 10:06 from my house.  It will be a good test for that fancy new seat you have.  :great:

Leave early, ride hard(and focused).

The campground does have decent, if older, showers.

The ride from VA to Suches is just over 300 miles allowing time to take some back roads.

10 hours on Google usually translates to 12-13 on a bike.  Especially in summer heat.  Then there’s
holiday weekend traffic and I95...  I’m scouring it over in my head.  My Ticker issue has my wife worried.

Traffic on Sunday shouldn't be a problem, Monday could/would be ugly.
