It's memorial day, and I have some time. Soo, I'm breaking this out of the "South Central Upcoming Events".
(To make the info more "visual")


Plans for the SC Final Fall Fling 3 are in the works.
Dates will be Oct 8, 9, 10 in Clinton Arkansas.
,,, {I suggest; arrive on the evening of the 7th. (b'kuz there are a lot of roads to ride)
I will be getting hotel details in the next week or two and will get it posted on the calendar.
Contact me or Jim for more details.

NOTE: Anthony is going to try to post some "Arkansas" riding from earlier this year.
{I hope this works / Ted}

Would be interesting to have directions from Brian (and/or anyone who knows) on what the maximum (or recommended) file sizes are per type. I'm getting this when I try attaching a video of just less than 700MB...

Also, for embedded vids (eg. as opposed to YT links) what is the recommended codec. I can convert to any of ~20 different formats, but with each shrinking/converting we lose some fidelity from the original HD vid.

Ok, that didn't work. (yet)
Hopefully someone can explain how to post the video's?
ie; Helpppppp!

,,,,,While we're waiting; below is something to keep you entertained.
{{ Below is; Jim and I playing on Push Mountain. {shown in "real time"} }}


fyi; We enjoy the road's in Arkansas a lot.
But, we're not overly fast in the twisties, & just like to be err player's. :sneaky:
At the Fling, We generally form 3 groups. {Sightsee'rs / Player's / Ruffian's}

Ride safe, Ted

PS: {If ya'll will tell him how to do it} I'm sure that Anthony (Texas.devops902) will get around to posting the {Slow Motion} version eventually.. <grin> :cool:

Haha, when I was done there I drove the speed limit ( not sure what category that falls into 😆) from the campground to the Motel and it was 5-6 minutes . I think I could walk it in 20 minutes. 🤣🤣

I'm looking to camp any other campers out there?

OK hotel reservations are setup for Oct 8, 9, 10 at Super 8 by Wyndham in Clinton Arkansas. Address is 2008 Hwy 65. Ted and I will probably arrive on Wed or Thursday. I have a block of 12 rooms reserved (more can be added if needed). Prices are $65 for single king/queen and $70 for double queen. Rooms are blocked for COG so be sure to mention COG when making reservations. Hotel number is (501)209-4358. Am waiting on a call back from the camp ground to get possible reservation for a group site. More details to follow. Can't wait to get back on those crooked Arkansas roads.

Very informative....
I fall into the "sight seer" category, with occasional/short burst up to "player".
"Ruffian" is no longer an option.

I hope we can make it this year... had to cancel last year due to covid19 exposure... finally actually did catch it Thanksgiving day.

Best Regards,
Bob

Here is a screen shot of a possible camping spots at the Choctaw park for FFF3. This is the D Loop. It is close to the restrooms and shower. The camp host told me that these sites can accommodate several tents on one site. Prices are $16 to $20 a night with electric and water.

Based on prior experience, may I recommend picking a spot upwind from the facilities. LOL

May I also suggest that whichever routes are planned, maybe sending out starting points and destinations might work better than the GPX files that seemed to have gotten kerfufl'd at the last event? Word has it that not everyone's GPS device(s) allowed for skipping waypoints, which made enjoyment of the rides a bit more of a challenge than expected.

As a work-around, making an inventory of the trips (with roads, routes or other naming conventions) will allow everyone to create their own plan in their own device(s) so that expectation mgmt can be handled at the individual level rather than at organizer or group-leader level.

NOTE: this isn't a ding on anyone, just an observation that might alleviate some unanticipated anti-patterns. After all, these gatherings are supposed to be fun (eg. NOT frustrating). :^ )

Hat tip to all those who volunteer to take on the enormous task of planning, organizing, coordinating, procuring for, and hosting these events!

Now, that would be a ride.....
But, it's not to put up with Ted.
My guess is: it's more for "the honor" of being in my presence.. <Sly GRIN> :unsure:
And, to ride the great roads in Arkansas!

Ride safe, Ted

For the campers out there. Just spoke with a Cogger who camped at the Choctaw campground and said section D was a nice location. They used their senior discount and got the site for $9/night. If anyone is planning on camping call the campground and make a reservation. He said you can put two tents per site.
