    Last summer, at a motel in northern BC, the owner told me not to leave anything out as there has been a rash of thefts focused on tourists. He said too many people without enough to do...

    Unhappy Hyder Seek 2011 Canceled

    Just got an email from Ron Ayers that indicated the event will not be conducted this year. His email says in part, "In light of the many demands on my time from both the business and the family side, I can't continue to organize and run the event."

    Too bad; we were looking forward to it.

    So, AKBeemer, it appears it's going to be up to you to organize an event up there.

    Just pick a location and a date, and announce it. You might be surprised at the turnout.

    Yes. Let's go anyway.

    Maybe we can talk to Caroline at the Boundary Gallery to order some for us.

    Red?

    Annie and I are still going to make the trip to Montana via Hyder... we'll be a bit less tied to a schedule than before, but that's okay too.

    Well Dave we sorta do something every summer. The dorms on campus are a steady stream of riders each summer already, but I guess we could look for a reason to have a gathering at a particular time. I'm open to suggestions.

    The other option is to gather for Dust 2 Dawson in late June. That's always a great time.

    Thanks for posting this, I hadn't signed up yet because I wanted to go to our BMWRO Chief Joseph Rally in John Day Oregon which is the next week after Hyder Seek. Now if I go I will be able to schedule around it but the idea of Hyder Seek sounded like a good time!

    Ron indicates that a forum has been established for folks that want to stay in touch regarding the event; I assume with an eye towards doing something in Hyder this summer.

    Thumbs up HyderSeek 2011 will happen

    That is true, HyderSeek 2011 will continue but in a different format.

    June 10-11, 2011

    Ron Ayers has decided because of overwelming commitments that he could not do HyderSeek. Paul Lawson has set up a google group to try to put something together. Gary, owner of the Sealaska Inn, has stepped forward to help with the meals. There will be shirts and hats also. There will be no up front fee for the rally. The costs will be up to those in attendence. Costs will be for lodging, food, shirts, hats, etc. We will need a head count for the Sealaske Inn for food. Shirts and hats will be advertised on the google site for sale when they become available. We are hoping that we will be able to get some door-prizes donated for the event from some of the vendors out there.

    Please help keep this event going as Ron has put so much effort in this event in the past. Please register on the site and keep checking back for updates.

    Here are the sites again:

    * Group name: Hyder Seek 2011
    * Group home page: http://groups.google.com/group/hyder-seek-2011
    * Group email address hyder-seek-2011@googlegroups.com

    Note below from Gary of the Sealaska Inn.

    Thank you for picking up the torch from Ron and Barb...They have done so
    much and got something started that we hope will carry on.

    Michele has said that she will prepare food for this event for either one
    day or the usual two.
    We will have to wait to see what kind of numbers that we come up with...If the group is less than 60, she will make a fixed meal ie; Baked Stuffed Halibut...More than that and she will have to go to a buffet type meal that would include both salmon and halibut.

    Usually on the second day we have a barbecue buffet style with hamburgers, salads, etc.

    Ron usually buys a group "Hyderize" drink for all of the qualifying 49ers
    who complete the 48+...I will be happy to do that honor...We will also take pics of the new 49ers to put on the Sealaska wall with the other classes.
