There has a been a free bike wash area at every national rally I have attended. The rally hosts make it happen not the hotel.

We're home from Mt Snow.
Had a great time.
OtP Travelers are still on the road. Think they are in Michingan today....

At the banquet I was supposed to help answer questions about the 2012 National.
At the time, all I knew was,, it was going to be in Eureka Springs. (not Texas)
So, I couldn't answer many questions. Still can't....
All I know is I'll be helping out in some way.... (That Rotten Rev, "volunteered" me)....

On the other Forum the current discussion is how far Eureka Springs is from everyone.....
Guess they (the Yankee's) now understand how I feel when the Nationals are up North and I have to travel from Houston.....<evil grin>  :stirpot:

BUT,,, I think we'll have a good turnout.     I KNOW THERE WILL BE GOOD RIDING!!!

Bottom line is;
                    Everyone is welcome.. We'll talk to anyone.. (Even Ya'll Yankee's)   <grin>   :rotflmao: :rotflmao:


See ya there.

Ride safe, Ted

Good discussion going on.... but can't they do a 'simple poll' on the other website?  :(

I hope to see you all in AK, but that questionaire is brutal!  Help needed IMHO

Yea, I struggled thru the questionaire too.
Not sure why they didn't do a simple Poll, other than they can only Poll 1 thing at a time....
(Can do a 1 item Poll but not a multiple question)

What worked best for me was; copy the most recent questionaire. 
Then pick your choice on each question,,, and delete the rest!!!    :thumbs:

For instance,,,,,,,,,,,
Is Ted a Genious?
   A) Heck yes   
   B) Heck NO!!   
   C) Sometimes he has his moments.   
   D) You gotta be kidding me!!!

Hmm, my last note seemed to have stopped this discussion.
I'll give it another try.

Lets start with questions.
* Who's planning to go?
* Who has registered?
* Who has reserved room?
* Is Ted a genious?  8)
* Please tell us something that you would like to see or do that has not been done at a previous National?
Copy and add questions......

Ride safe, Ted

Another Thgought:
I have a special interest in (better) including people that are at their first COG National.
This includes long time COG Members that have never attended a National.
 
NOTE: I'm willing to take the lead in making some arrangements.
           Yes, I'm Volunteering. arghhhhh  :yikes:
           I Just don't know how to better include them?
          Please help me by sending suggestions to this thought.

Ride safe, Ted

PS: If needed, I will move this part of the Discussion to another Topic...
