    Default A New Event For 2020 ??

    We are going to be re-locating to NW Arkansas in 2019.

    For Summer/2020:

    How many of you would be interested in joining us for a combination, BBQ, camp over, and local scenic rides event?

    We hosted such an event in 2015 (the NtA riders) in Alaska and that was a great success.

    Details to be worked out--but I would try to schedule this around other events. Lots of people on here that we have not yet met in person and would like to.

    And, I am open to suggestions and would welcome "volunteer" help with the process.

    Early, yes. But time flies by very fast.

    As a participant in the NTA feast that Dewane and Linda put on for us. You would not be disappointed.

    At this point you can put Kathy and I down, and I would be happy to help.

    Count Sharon and Dave Goebel in! We've heard from Les and Kathy about how great the NtA was, we did last fall's Spyder's in the Ozarks (SitO) and really enjoyed it. NW Arkansas is such a beautiful area to ride in. From the Ozark National Forest down to the Ouachita National Forest roads as well.
    Safe Rides,

    So far, none in the potential garages. But, there will be plenty of space.

    Thanks to all who have answered so far. Linda has a big smile on her face over this.

    Results are about what we anticipated. Not trying to circumvent the big rallies. This will be a smaller gathering of friends old & new.

    Any suggestion what to call it?

    My vote: The Arkansas Gathering.

    I like it. But the Florida and Louisiana people are also welcome. I will put it in the hopper.

    Doesn't work for half the country. I would end up in Mexico, and many of us would sink in the Gulf of Mexico.

    NW Arkansas isn't very far from the geographical center of the lower 48: Liberal County, Kansas.

    The larger question is: What is AKSPYDERMAN going to change his handle to?

    Whoops! I didn't change mine, did I? Never mind! (Apologies to Gilda Radner)

    RE: Handle--I have a couple ideas in mind. So far they are not taken. I am going to keep the world in suspense until I arrive.

    Another suggestion added to the hopper.
