There have been tiny rumblings about a National (very tiny) but I thought I'd see if anyone is serious about attending a 2015 National.

Based on the gurgling in the National thread, most interest has centered around Wisconsin. Therefore, if you really want to attend a National in Wisconsin this year, please vote for the month in which you could most likely attend. If enough people can decide on a date and region, then perhaps the Magic will happen. If not... then I hear the Eureka Springs is the place to be in 2016.

The poll is only valid for a month. I'll let it die a quiet death if nothing comes of it by then  Embarassment

I think this poll should have been only two choices.

June or Not June.   Wink

But that's just me thinking only of myself again, instead of the greater good.  Rolleyes

However for the purposes of a tally, just take my July vote and add it to what ever month
that is the closest in votes to June that isn't June, as all those other months are fine with me.
Although October in S.D. or WI. can be iffy weather-wise.  Headscratch

There's a really good chance I'll be in Wisconsin at some point this summer.  We haven't picked dates yet but probably July, so I'll vote for that in case the dates line up and I can drop in to the National also.

Where in WI are y'alls thinking?

I've edited the poll parameters: you can now change your vote AND add a second one!



Location pinpointing will be highly dependent upon those who know Wisconsin. Those who fit into this realm, please put on your thinking caps  Tinfoil Hat

Very nice of you! Thanks!   Inlove

It still looks like June is going to win even with the second vote help for other months. Darn. Sad

It would appear (from much afar) that La Crosse WI. would be at the center of the squiggly things?  LINK
There are interesting looking roads (via Google anyway) in three states there.

I voted October.  Let's all go to the Slimey Crud Run near Madison.  Basket and I have gone there for the past couple of years.  Only snowed twice.

I might be able to make June.  Although its been a long time since I attended a National ('06 WV) , I've never been to the driftless area in WI and the roads look great! 

Lacrosse looks good to base from, but wasn't there a meet a number of years back in the Boscobel area?

  Might I suggest the Hocking Hills area of Ohio, specifically Lake Hope State Park which has a lot of cabin availability for the 3rd wknd in June(18th-20th)   This will be the scene of the crime place for the concours riders group:   Mid-Ohio Lake Hope State Park Non-Rally (MOHLSPNR)weekend for those of us not wanting to make the pilgrmmage out to the "Official" rally site of Cortez, Colo....

No.



 Bigsmile
Specifically because this "where should we hold the National" has been bandied about for months and no one is willing to plan anything. I was willing enough to post a poll based in Wisconsin simply because that was the one state that kept resurfacing with any regularity.


That being said, if DeansZG wants to take over and plan the entire event, he can have it in his backyard for all I care  Bigok

BUMP!    Thumbsup

C'mon folks, only a few days left to vote! I need an event to escape from the Texas heat in July or August!  Bigok
Please vote or change your vote(s) to July or August for a Wisconsin National.

We even have a volunteer:

Have we set a firm date yet? If it can wait until July or August, I can put something together.

And I'm still available to do it, though September is a close 2nd place right now.
If July and August combine for more than June alone, how would the last week of July or first week of August work?  I'm thinking of LaCrosse as the center, as there are numerous motels with good riding in in all directions.  Wisconsin Dells will be a zoo at that time, but would be very workable for September.

YES!, and OK.

Great! JULGUST would be perfect.


 I'm thinking of LaCrosse as the center, as there are numerous motels with good riding in in all directions.

I haven't been in that area in decades, but on Google Earth it looks very promising.


Wisconsin Dells will be a zoo at that time, but would be very workable for September.


The Dells?  EEK!   ...yuk. Too many Ducks on the road. Do they still have that poor dog jumping back and forth on that rock?
