    Up to 60 registered, from 14 states, on 11 brands... off to a great start.

    Rooms are going quickly...

    Ran into Neale Bayly at the Triumph launch event Saturday night, and he confirmed he'll be available to give presentations and lead a ride over to Wheels Through Time. His Friday presentation will be on his Peru trips, and his non-profit foundation, Wellspring http://www.wellspring-outreach.org/. On Saturday night, at my request, he'll show a collection of 50 random images spanning his career, and reliving those moments... this is going to be really cool.

    update

    Last call for plush accommodations...

    If you want a roof over your head for the weekend, that isn't a bunkhouse, your options are getting thin...
    Here’s what’s left as of 1:45 PM today:
    4 semi-private rooms (shared bath with one other room)
    1 private room
    2 bedroom cabin
    4 bedroom cabin

    The cabins can be broken into individual “rooms”.
    There is still plenty of bunk house and camping availability.

    Important rally updates, PLEASE READ!

    Accommodations:
    There are no private or semi-private rooms remaining at The Iron Horse.
    Remaining accommodations are limited to:
    2 bunk house beds
    2 RV sites with water and electric
    6 tent sights with 110 power
    Lots of free range tent sights

    Alternate lodging options are detailed on the event page:
    https://www.eventbrite.com/e/motorcy...on-20632762147

    Registrations:
    We have been asked to cap this event at 150 participants to ensure we don’t exceed the capacity of the dining services.
    If you (or others in your party) haven’t registered yet, especially if you have already made lodging reservations, please do so!
    https://www.eventbrite.com/e/motorcy...on-20632762147
    There will be a waiting list established when we hit the registration cap.
    We’ll ask those who have registered to re-confirm a month prior to the event - any cancellations at that time will be made available to those on the waiting list, in the order that they registered for it.

    Thanks, ride safe

    I finally got tired of crawling into a tent and bought a teepee. You can't miss it. One of my girl friends will be joining me.

    You're allowed more than one... if anyone judges it will be out of pure envy!

    Quick update - registration is at 160, we have raised the ceiling to 175... there simply isn't food service capacity beyond that!

    Growing pains, we didn't expect this strong of a response for the first year. I'll be working with John to expand capacity for next year, the more the merrier!
