    It's one of those unincorporated village type places.

    As to camping, I'd go with the Caledonia or PG Furnace SP area. It's the better side of the county wrt traffic and nice roads.

    Any "unofficial" meet/greet/ride set up yet? My schedule won't allow for a day long ride, although RB has some nice rides mapped.

    I stopped for lunch there with a group of about 25 from the Army War College in Carlisle I was leading to the memorial last year, and everyone was happy.

    Where you able to sit outside on the deck? I love watching all the bikes go buy on nice day.

    With 25 riders you must have overwhelmed the place!

    Schedule?

    Does anyone know the schedule of events? What time does registration begin?

    I know Friday kicks off with a reception and cash bar. What time? What does the reception include?

    There will be several MARs members in attendance and we are trying to make a plan. Should we plan on a group dinner elsewhere?

    By the way, anyone and everyone is welcome to gather with us!

    On your way home...

    The MidAtlantic Riders would like to invite anyone heading home on Sunday to join us at Prudomme's Lost Cajun Kitchen in Columbia for Lunch. It's a great spot with many a story and much history. Foods great too. I guarantee it will be a one of a kind experience.

    50 Lancaster ave
    columbia, PA 17512

    If you're leaning toward going, we probably should give the proprietors' a heads up by Wednesday 4/12 so please let me know asap.

    Tom and all,

    I will have Internet access and post the plan here Saturday night. I'm sure the hotel will have an Internet station or business center for those who want to log in.

    This is going to be GREAT

    I am a new guy in town. This will be my first BMW Getaway. Though I call it a Rally since my wife is not coming, she does not ride. Went on my first ride Saturday with the Westchester Bemmer Riders and what a day a what a great ride. My first BMW group ride.
    I look forward to meeting up with all the riders and passengers in Gettysburg. Hope you don't mind me picking your brains for your advice and opinons.
    Have a save ride to the Eisenower.

    I have not attended a MOA event before and I'm not sure what to expect. I did not sign up for any of the tours but now that I look at the schedule I just received in the mail I am wondering whether there might be openings - the information in the ON magazine and on the MOA site has not been very helpful. Does anyone have insight into this?
