    2019 Blitz to Branson

    This is a copy from the IBMWR site, welcome to all of course.

    BIG thanks to Karen and any others ones that help with all the work in keeping the list updated.

    $ 58 for a nice clean room in Branson is a bargain these days. If you have ever wanted to see a show in Branson or have famous rolls thrown at you this would be a good time to go. The traffic is usually less this time of year.

    Been twice and will never forget my first trip in 2007 (remembered fondly). It used to be held in early April.

    Temperatures in my area never got above 36F. While sitting on the Ambassador Bridge, a massive snow storm began which had me riding in it for two hours. Visibility wasn't great but at least the snow melted as it hit the road. Snow was followed by very, very cold rain and lightning and hail storms. Temperatures hovered around 28F or lower. Once there I believe that it rained most of the weekend. My riding partner decided to take a scenic route from his place in southern Illinois which had us arriving at about 9:30 that evening. Unfortunately, thirty miles or so, with him behind me, his front wheel washed out resulting in paramedics being called. He was sore all over, but we rode into Branson.

    Second trip in 2010 (may have been held later in April) was warmer, but lots of rain again (and tornadoes).

    The Branson Blitz is a good weekend but me, living where I do, has had me cancel my reservation several times due to inclement weather. I'm not as hardy as I used to be.

    Paul & I had a great time! Thanks to Karen for all she did to organize this. We had a great ride home and NO RAIN (unlike the ride up). It was good to see everyone again.
