Dispute the hoopla going on if I were not sch to be working during that time frame I would be there as it is about the people. The Parking Lot Socials are the most fun!
Damn Tony your not going to make this years rally?  Hypothetically; if you would be 'accidentally' swept over-board the recovery mission should last about a week.  Just think...after the miraculous recovery from being lost at sea for a week youll be frick'n famous.  Just a thought :-X

151 - What a coincidence. This is the number of rooms already booked at Mount Snow for the rally. This is going to be a well attended event. Don't miss out. Even the $49/night rooms at Snow Lake Lodge get you close to the rally action and all the great riding the rally area has to offer.  If you are planning on attending, please make reservations soon before rooms begin to get scarce.

If you haven't been to Vermont before, now is most definitely the time to come.  The deal we are getting on room rates is outstanding.    Vermont has a lot to offer in the Summer as anyone who has been there knows.  So come join the fun.  You will be glad you did.

Registration is nearing the 300 mark and rooms are filling fast.  The rally team is frantically getting prepared.  Latest news is Murph's Kits will sponsor Ice Cream for the first 300 at the No-Host Social Gathering Tuesday evening.

Book your rooms to make sure you have a place to stay and please register online for the event soon so the team has an idea of how many people to plan for.

OK..so I live only an hour and a half away from Killington..but maybe I'm thinking I might come over and stay one night just to hang and meet folks, do a day ride, that sort of thing. So, if you were to pick one night and day to ride, which would you guys suggest. Thanks in advance.

The cut off date for ordering National Rally Merchandise is July 13th! Your order must be in by July 13th. All national merchandise is "pre order" by registered rally attendees only - so if you want a memento you need to get registered moving. If you've already ordered you can still go into the system and add stuff to your order if needed.

Only registered attendees that are present during the banquet prize drawing are eligible to win some of the terrific prizes to be given away... like a weekend lodging at Myrtle Beach Holiday Inn Express or Cardo Systems Scalarider G4 Powerset.

Those as just a tease and I've been told more are coming in... Aerostich, ROADGEAR and Twisted Throttle have also committed to being a prize sponsor.  We also have stuff coming in from the terrific smaller vendors like yourself and are always looking for more vendors on-board to get prizes out to more attendees. Thanks to you all.

In addition to Shoodaben Engineering
"The way things 'shoodaben' done from the factory!"

I needed to add this other new sponsor to the list of sponsors. So without further Ado. Let me add the next sponsor to my little thank you and support thread:

Author Lance Oliver (who will be the Special Guest Speaker at the Rally on Wednesday night) has donated a personally signed copy of his book, The Ride So Far.  He will sign it for the winner.
Check out his book at: http://www.theridesofar.com/

I see that I posted this thread in the rides section. This probably should have probably gone in the scheduled events section. If one of the moderators read this, could you move it to the events section. That's probably a more appropriate place. Thanks!

The Over the Pond travelers will be arriving in the "US of A" in 5 days to start their ride to Mt Snow.
Bernd will arrive in Colorado. Gie will arrive in Nebraska.
They will meet up in Lincoln Nebraska.
They will start the ride by going to Kawasaki Headquarters to pay Homage at the Home of our Beloved Concours!!!!
If anyone is in the area, Chris has  a gathering planned. Contact him to find out details....

The reason I'm posting this here is to plea for "tasty Delicasies" for the Travelers to sample.
The Sampling of Tasty Delicasies is a "Over the Pond" tradition!

If I can find some Jalopenia's in Vermont? I'll fix em' some Jalopenia Poppers.....
I suspect Guy (Rottten Individual that he is) will probably have some Moonshine. (I almost killed myself the last time he brought that)!
Rick will definitely show them some of the local beers....

If anyone else has something special for them to sample,,,,,  bring it along (or share it with them if you see them on the way to Mt Snow).

This is gonna be great!!!

Ride safe, Ted

Has anyone contacted MotoPrimo?  They said that they would be more than happy to donate again this year (EXO400 helmet last year). 
I emailed a few of the big wheels at COG about them, I didnt see their name on the list??
