    Getaways

    So, it is going to cost me $178 bucks for the two of us to attend. I don't find any information on what that does for us. Could we have some details please. Hotel and area look great. mt

    MT -

    In the link there were contacts for Paul Mulhern and Bill Edwards. Try contacting them via email and asking your question. Get them to come back to this thread and post an answer to it so others can get a better feel of the event.

    The rally fee includes a goody bag, with a t-shirt and some other swag. A social gathering on Friday with light food and cash bar and dinner on Saturday. There will be door prizes/awards given away at the dinner. In addition we will have packets with information on places to see and go in the local area and maps of the best roads, eating places, attractions, etc.
    The hotel fee will include breakfast, high speed internet, pool, etc.
    You can contact myself or Bill directly (our emails are on the event site) if you have any more questions.
    Hope to see you there.

    Pre-run

    So, for spring break 2016 my 13 YO son and I had decided to ride to Big Bend from our home in eastern Oklahoma. The plan was to ride the 3 sisters, staying the first night in that general area. After learning of this Getaway I decided to make my reservation at the getaway host hotel.

    The ride to the hotel from eastern Oklahoma was uneventful and easy, bypassing the Dallas area. Finding the hotel was a bit tricky only because my GPS decided the hotel was on the other side of the lake, we turned around and got checked in quickly. The room we had was great, overlooking the lake.

    After checking in we literally walked across the street to the world famous Blue Bonnet Cafe where there was a short wait (well worth it). The place is bigger than you think and they had us seated within 15 minutes or so, despite the line at the door.

    We got up the next morning, riding the hour or so to the beginning of the 3 sisters - along the route we must have passed 50 wineries between Marble Falls and Kerrville, where we stayed our second night after making our first run at the 3 sisters. If you've never ridden 3 sisters, that alone is worth the visit, nice twisties, great views and changes in elevation.

    The following morning we rode a section we had missed the day before and continued our journey to Big Bend.

    This area has something to offer everyone - wine, shopping, great riding and a beautiful host hotel!

    Well, if the responses from people coming back in from their ride on Saturday evening was any indication the event went very well. We filled our venue to capacity and everyone I spoke with had a good time. Lots of folks walked away with some goodies and I think everyone managed to make some new friends.
    Rumor is we can expect to see the getaway back in Texas next year.
