    I attended for 14 years straight..............................

    Then stopped!

    It's been 4 or 5 since I've been there.

    I want to report that new brackets have been fabricated, to fit the old rack onto the new bike!

    We'll be there!

    I have filled out the pre registration form, now I have to mail the check. Why don't they do credit cards on Square or PayPal?

    Last time I was at the rally was 1992.

    Good nite man! You gotta find a hobby or something; that's surely some sort of record. Somebody start a thread on most continuously attended rally so you can reap honors!

    Darryl,
    30 years is some accomplishment!
    I can only wonder how many bottles of NY wine you've enjoyed over that time.........

    That weekend is also the Indy Car race at the track. Expect very large crowds in town on Friday and Saturday evenings, with the equivalent amount of idiocy.

    The Indy and Holiday crowd last year was not much of a problem, but when I was there for Nascar 2 weeks ago, this was the main issue downtown at the park / gorge intersection.. Quite the fustercluck

    From the website.....

    The gorge trail at Watkins Glen State Park is open; however access to the Gorge Trail/Waterfalls from the main entrance will remain slightly limited due to the on-going construction project.
    Due to major construction at our Main Entrance there will be additional parking available at our Upper Entrance located at 3310 Route 409, Watkins Glen.


    Plan your downtown trips carefully
