    24th Annual Airheads at the Aerodrome Gathering

    TIME IS RUNNING SHORT TO RESERVE YOUR SPOT. HOPE TO SEE YOU THERE FOR AN EXCELLENT ADVENTURE



    24th ANNUAL "AIRHEADS AT THE AERODROME" CAMPOUT

    Mid Hudson Valley, New York June 21-23, 2019

    THE BEST KEPT SECRET IN THE NORTHEAST

    WOW! We will be celebrating our twenty-fourth year of fun at Dutchess County Wilcox Park, located one mile east of the Taconic Parkway on Route 199 in Milan, NY.
    Come join us for two nights camping with lots of shaded camping space. Clean restrooms, free hot showers, covered pavilion, swimming lake, boating and fishing lake, fields, hiking trails and many great local riding roads. Renowned Chef Karla will once again prepare her fabulous Saturday night steak, and LOTS more, dinner (ONLY for those whose pre-paid pre-registrations are postmarked by 17 June 2019). There are restaurants and stores about 8 miles east in Pine Plains, NY or 10 miles west in Rhinebeck, NY for those who choose not to pre-register (and hope there will still be room when they just show up) or wish to fix their own meals. Cooking and campfires on site are permitted. BTW, vegetarian and vegan entrees are also offered for the non-face eaters as part of the 80' long buffet spread.
    All brands of motorcycles are welcome, not just BMW airheads, but please, NO LOUD PIPES. There will also be an informal swap meet for those who wish to bring along motorcycle related parts to sell. Swap meet vendor spaces are free. You can still ride to the Old Rhinebeck Aerodrome on Saturday afternoon for an amazing air show. (Air show admission not included in the rally fee, www.oldrhinebeck.org) We will also offer the choice of a self-guided ride to the 85,000 sq. ft. Motorcyclepedia Museum in Newburgh, NY featuring over 500 motorcycles and other attractions. www.motorcyclepediamuseum.org Lots of local historical attractions, agricultural sites, and even distilleries and wineries to visit.
    AGAIN THIS YEAR! Friday Tech Day presented by renown Airhead builder, customizer and restorer Anthony Lonigro, supported by several former PA SuperTech presenters. Bring your questions, projects (with needed parts and fluids) and desire to learn. Questions are free, answers start at $3 each, projects will be addressed as time and space allows. No “bikes in a box” PLEASE! Drinks, food and a donation can will be there for Tech Day support
    Motor home/camper electrical and water hookup spaces are limited, so please request early. Parking for four wheelers and trailers is available on site. Contact me for local lodging information for the camping challenged. Note: Campers, motor homes and trailers are not permitted on the Taconic Parkway. Contact me for alternate routes to the site.
    Last year, as always, we had to turn a few people away at the gate because this event is that good and space is still limited. EARLY pre-registration is strongly suggested! Do not wait, mail your check today.
    Cost for the weekend camping (including Saturday night dinner for the (pre-registered) is only $35.00 per person, children 12 and under are admitted free. Please make your checks out to Michael Friedle. All BMW riders and their guests are welcome. Questions, directions, information or to pre-register, Michael Friedle, 8 College Ave, Poughkeepsie, NY, 12603; 914-489-4174 (cell) or mfriedle@verizon.net. Please include an e mail address, or phone number, with your check so I may confirm your registration. See you there soon. Come ready for fun!

    If you don't have the time, resources or desire to go to the MOA National in TN, then this is where you should be. There is still time to pre register.

    It's worth the ride. Some year's you wouldn't even be in contention for long distance rider.

    The roads are the only thing I miss.
    (and possibly good bread and the fact that you and I never got to meet)

    Reservations coming in faster than a Chicago election. Space is a finite number, don't wait too long to save your spot at the dinner table. See you there.

    Thanks for the support folks. Once again we are sold out. If you were thinking of attending this event, make sure to sign up earlier next year for the best kept secret in the Northeast. It took a little longer to fill up this year due to so many attending the MOA in TN. Next year for the 25th anniversary it will sell out much quicker.

    Thank you to all who joined us for a fantastic weekend of excellent campground, weather and food. I will leave it to others to fill in the blanks. If you are really curious about what happens at the best kept secret in the Northeast be sure to pre register early next year's 25th edition, which will again sell out. There is a possibility of a mention in print from one of the celebrity MOA/Airheads who were there to join in the fun, although I will protect their identity. No, it wasn't Jack Riepe.
