If there is enough interest, something might fall together...

Will we have one?
Would there be any interest in a National in the upper midwest, specifically the driftless area in SW Wisconsin?

SD has been the the traditional location in the
rotation.
While Wisconsin may certainly be a good location
I feel the North West contingent deserves
their shot at the National.
Anybody else have an opinion?

Yeah, I have an opinion. Since the NW is closer to me than Wisconsin, I say the NW.

I love riding places I've never been.
That'd be the North Wet.
Of course, Wisconsin is only about 1/2 way for me...
Either way, thanx for starting the discussion.

The key to having a successful National is the following:

1) Someone determines a location based on suggestions of others
2) That person makes an executive decision on lodging and food and riding opportunities
3) 70% of the people will bitch and complain about the location and/or the lodging/food/road options
4) That person will post a poll to determine dates. This will elicit complaints from those who don't like the date options
5) 60% of the people will bitch and complain about the date chosen
6) 30% of the people who voted will actually show up


So - someone go ahead and run with #1 and get the ball rolling!!!  Bigok

Just call coffee meets 4 days in a row for all regions in SW WI.

I just locked up 90% of my 2015 vacation plans on a BWCA canoe trip, hunting/fishing trips, and various other family obligations. For me, planning needs to be much further in advance.  I'm in MN, so I'm within easy range of the locations that have been floated do far, but the calendar is already basically booked up into 2016.  Sad

+1

For me, a date needs to be agreed upon much further in advance.  

While we're on the subject, what about changing the date to the weekend before/after/on Father's Day.

I'll bet we would have had twice as many people - probably more - in North Carolina last year on the weekend.

Wisconsin could be doable for us, depending on job status. Ladyninja's (Mrs. 547) family is in MN so if we make it, we could combine visits.

La Crosse Wisconsin area is great riding.


Even if it is too late to put together a Midwest National Meet in this area, or another place nearby, I would be interested in some kind of informal ride-in / rally of sorts.

I've been to the Wildcat Mountain Rally in nearby Westby WI, that's on Labor Day Weekend a couple of times. Good event, and its routes are in good riding areas.
