    Yes, we did know that it was the same dates as Spyderpalooza and we did our best to schedule around it, however our goal is to have the best event and not necessarily the biggest. To accomplish this we needed certain venues that where already booked on the other weekends in September, so we had no choice but to go with this weekend. I feel that it will not interfere with each other being 1200 miles apart. Good luck with your event. Ron

    Spyderquest 2013 really, really, really lucked out with the Weather for the event.......I'm sure they are considering that fact in moving it closer to August because in this part of the world COLD weather comes early.......JMHO...Mike

    I'm not sure this of this Motel thing you are talking about............ Spyderquest 2014 offers Resort Style lodging for $99.00, not motels. Our guests deserve the best........

    Conflicting dates. That is one of the biggest reasons for the schedule chosen. Spyder Palooza 2013 was originally scheduled on the same weekend as Spyder Quest but was changed to the week before to avoid a conflict. We felt it would be detrimental to both events. Since Spyder Quest chose the third weekend after Labor Day last year we figured it would be the same and didn't want to interfere with your event. We were trying to be good spyder folks and not purposely schedule a conflict with another event.

    Even though there is 1200 miles separating the events there are a lot of Ryder's in between that will have to make a choice as well as vendors. Our event is themed and the dates have everything to do with it.

    Did anyone involved at your end PM or in some way contact Randy about the fact that you were going to change your plans because of SPYDERQUEST ....the 2013 was chosen because it was a last minute thing with very little time to play with......the weather is very different where you are in September than where we are ! ! ! ...........................Sorry Mike

    No. We just changed our dates for 2013 so as not to cause a problem. We posted our date for 2014 right after Spyder Quest 2013 so as not to be in conflict with Spyder Quest 2014. Were we sent a PM concerning our posted 2014 dates? No. If September weather is an issue then maybe August would be better? We have chosen the second Weekend following Labor Day for Spyder Palooza, as a yearly themed event. Is this going to be a conflict every year? For us the date is very important because we are putting on a 9/11 TRIBUTE for our fallen.

    I guess i am just disappointed that the courtesy normally experienced within the Spyder community is lacking when it comes to event planning. Maybe we need a Calendar on the forum? That would be a great.

    CaptainSFC,

    Just like Ron said. The events are 1200 miles apart and the other dates were already taken. Maybe moving it to August is a solution in the future but for next year that is a mute point. August does sound nice Ron and Randy but I guess that is still prime vacation time and deals are hard to get.

    That being said, I know that for myself and my wife we would not travel that distance to an event since my wife does not get very many days vacation each year.

    SFC, don't get your pants /panties / or what ever in a bind about this ......I DIDN'T PICK ANY DATES WHATSOEVER.........That being said The Lake George area ( where SpyderQuest is held ) is a Tourist Mecca until LABOR DAY....you can't book any events prior to Labor Day everything is booked solid and you can't even get a room.........The NY Spyder Riders did the best they could and I'm sure You people did the Best you could SO LETS ALL BE FRIENDS............................PLEASE......... ........... .......Mike

    Do you think because it was moved a week before ours that it made it ok to step on another event ??????? Knowing Spyderquest was already being put on in September, IMO showed no class on your part and now more of your true colors are showing posting in this thread trying to make us out to be the bad guy. I will stand by no longer and watch you turn this thread upside down with your insinuations that we are stepping on your event. Even Stevie Wonder could see it's the other way around.

    Please be respectful and stop posting in this thread.
    No need for the hostility. I was not being hostile. If I did Come across as hostile I apologize. Also, I do apologize if I misunderstood event etiquette. I am new to Spyders as i have only had my Spyder a bit over a year and didn't understand. My first event was Spyder Fest and was simply blown away by a very well organized event and wondered why there were not more. I didn't realize that an event scheduled in a particular month meant that was the only event that was to be scheduled for that month. we posted our dates 2 months ago for out themed event. Spyder Quest a few days ago. I will speak to the other Spyder Palooza organizers about the one event per month rule so as to minimize any future conflicts. Ii still think an event calendar would be good. I am sure, and hope, as the Spyder community grows, the number of events will increase so a schedule would be a great way to avoid these types of problems. From what I see here the max number of events is 12 per year or 1 per month. Besides, as we have seen with the Spyder Fest, Spyder Palooza and Spyder Quest, the need to schedule each event early is important.

    Also, I completely understand the resort area thing. I live in a resort area myself and know the pitfalls of scheduling anything during tourist season.

    There are plenty of Ryder's for both events. My concern is the vendors. Splitting vendors would be a injustice to both events.

    I am done posting on this thread. I can be reached by PM or even a phone call @ 5734294976 if anyone would like to yell at me. Been married 25 years so I am used to it! Haha.

    Have a great event and if it is. It to early... Have a great holiday season!

    --Chuck
    P.s. Wasn't trying to make anyone feel bad. I was just trying to get across the significance of the date to our theme for the event. One thing we do around here is have regular rides/events for Vets and First Responders.

    I don't know about anyone else but it would be super cool to have a Spyder event going on in every part of the US and Canada at the same time. Just think of the coverage we would get.
