    Exclamation See you at Pine Mountain!

    My wife and I, along with our merry band of misfits, have been asked to take over the planning and organization of the Pine Mountain Getaway from Bill and Nancy. We hope to be able to build off the grand foundation that Bill and Nancy provided us.

    If you have any comments or ideas on how we can make the PM getaway better, please don't hesitate to contact me, dcasey851@gmail dot com, or PM me.

    We look forward to seeing you at Pine Mountain!

    Daryl -

    Thanks for stepping in on this! You might want to have the office update the main website page...it mentions Bill and Nancy at one point.

    Is this event still on?

    If so, what kind of attendance is expected to date. Not much traffic on this thread.

    Wife & I will be there, along with another couple. We were there the past (2) years and its a great time. Past 2- years there were about 70-90 people. I'd expect fewer (considering whats going on) but still more than the thread traffic indicates.

    I'll be there. My first MOA Getaway. Tried to attend several this year, but all I was interested in were cancelled.

    Typically, members will get together and organize on site. Very spontaneous and rewarding. My recommendation, hover appropriately distanced around groups that may be looking over a map, or GPS, introduce yourself, and request to join them, I seriously doubt folks will decline your request.

    Of course, the very first getaway I ever went on, the riding group was formed right here on the forums... so, also very effective.

    Daryl, I know you and the Mrs. will do a great job. Just a heads up, my cousin Beth Blue is the head chef there. She will do everything she can to take care of you all. I was going to make it a family affair and come up with mom and Aunt Linda (her mom) but then Covid... and an overzealous, overreaching O-8 at Rucker squashed all that. This was going to be me and Rhonda’s “big year” of rally’s and Getaways, pine mountain was in the line up. Have fun and be safe. I appreciate what you are doing for our club. Till we meet again sir, salute.

    Sounds good. I'm going to hit some sites I want to see on the way down (Back of the Dragon, WV/KY mining towns, etc.). A ride to the Cumberland gap visitor center would be cool and then up for anything else, frankly. Also hoping to talk to new people that are not colleagues on MS Teams.

    The event is a GO! Per State guidelines, we've had to cap our registration to 50 people and we're full.

    We are working on a some ride routes and destinations for folks to explore, and we can always set up a group ride if there's enough interest. We can poll everyone Friday night at dinner.

    Take care,

    Just a heads up for all Pine Mountain attendees, per CDC and State regulations masks must be worn while in the Lodge and the State Resort Park.

    I promise you all that me and my Kentucky Crew are doing the best we can to ensure this event will be a great time!

    See you on the Mountain!
    Daryl
