Beat the Heat

Come on up to the Blue Ridge Motorcycle Campground to Beat The Heat. This social will be held July 29-August 1.

The campground address is: 59 Motorcycle Dr Canton, NC
Phone: 828-235-8350
If they don't pick-up, leave a message and they will call you back.

Tent camping $15 for one person $22 for two people.
Cabins $49.95 or $66 for one with a bathroom.

The kitchen is not going to be open this year so that's kind of a bummer, but perhaps we could get something catered in. I'll look into that later today.

If anyone wants to organize a cook-out please let me know.

I heard that.. Go to one, the other, or both. No problem. I’m sure they’ll have fun.

When several COG members asked about this event at Hohenwald, this one was added. At that time, the “other group “ had nothing planned. I’m in that other group, too (at least until they throw me out, possibly later this morning).🤣

We have been busy with the National Rally planning this spring. The members of that other group are welcome to attend that, too!

Jimmie & I are signed up!



Anything there to cook on besides the one small grill by the pavilion?

Wonder if Kurt is coming.?

I"ll be there and would haul a couple grills up if I had a trailer. Tried strapping it on the back but no room with my camp gear lol

I called BRMC and they do not have their kitchen setup this year. He doesn't have the fuel to run the stove so we can't use that. We could use the barbeques. One night we could cook up some spaghetti. Open to other suggestions. I'll be getting a steak and salad kit like in previous years for another meal.

Got these days scheduled off!

I should be able bring some smoked beans or pre-smoked ribs. Will there be a cooler or something to keep the food in?

Just checked the weather and it is looking good so far! 85 during the day, okay so a little hot, but a nice 64 at night. Chance of rain, well its a bit far out to be certain right now, but it looks to be about 25% on Wednesday. Hope that holds or gets even better.

Sounds good. We need a poll RE Saturday dinner:

Pizza or spaghetti and how many to cook/buy for?

It’ll affect the equipment and order sizes. Can someone post a poll?
Thanks

(I'll get a Pizza just for Phil. He'll be hungry after a big day of riding!) :cool:

Wow this rally is going to be awesome Blue ridge parkway the campground the usual fun around the campfire and now we're doing meals. Let me know if you need help from Wendy or I with the food prep. And if I have a vote I'd say spaghetti and meatballs keep it simple. You could get massive bags of salad for the side and let people put it in their own bowls and pick their own dressing. Self-serve and lineup.
