well she wasn't really ugly, and could execute anyone who displeased her, so who know if she really was,  I doubt anyone would talk.

Sonora sounds good to me. The topo looks amazing from the map I found. When is the WCRM next time round? Might have to run down to Sonora for it.

The 2012 WCRM will be held in Sonora CA (as voted on by all 2011 WCRM attendees) Just need to pick a hotel/place to hang our hats at.

Um, I doubt it was named for Queen Victoria. The Colony of Virginia was founded by The London Company in 1607. over 200 years before Victoria was born. And unless you really believe in miraculous conception, the fact that Victoria and her husband, Albert, the Prince Consort had several children would kind of rule out Victoria being a virgin.

I gathered it would be Sonora. But that does not address WHEN. I remember the discussion in Custer between you and Mr. Sunshine about when to hold it as well as where. Is there a concrete set of dates yet?

You are correct.  It was Elizabeth I that I was thinking of.

No the date for the 2012 WCRM is not set in stone YET. Tentatively the week after the National.

More details will follow ........

More like the date is not set (the week after the national could be a possibility)
The week after the national should have little snow left in the hills, maybe even HOT.
Truth be told I love riding the area around Fortuna, but lets face it A good New York Steak is mighty fine but would not like to eat one Every Day.
Change is good, and Maybe Rob & Gill will actually get to ride somewhere besides their backyards Bigok

I agree with Mr. Sunshine and others the Western National should be in the "West"  not the Mid West (Colorado). Like Mr. Sunshine said: "The idea of the rotation was to put a national close to people so they would go. Not having one near the west coast is not fair to the west coasters."

The Eastern National is generally within a few hundred miles of the Atlantic Coast is this not correct? It seems only fair that the Western National should be within the same parameters. Not a thousand miles from the Pacific coast (Montrose, CO.)  Would you have the next East Coast National in (St. Louis, MO.) which is more or less than a thousand miles from the Atlantic coast, "sure it's a distance from the East Coast, but it's a fun ride."!   Bigok

Other than that two cents.......  I have more... when planning a National or a Regional  one of the top concerns should be camping. The location should  include a nearby  campground, for those of us who like to camp and I like to camp.  

On the  subject of Sonora, Ca. it's a  great area with some great roads, to far south, but it's OK. (I would prefer Oregon)  I went through their last March going from Grass Valley to Oakhurst on Hwy. 49 which at times is one amazingly  hillacious steep and twisty road, it really gave me a workout.  I like the nearby town of Angels Camp and New Melones Lake has some nice campgrounds. Any meet in the area should be after all the mountain passes have opened.... just say'in.

The Eastern Seaboard is about 1,800 miles long. The West Coast is about 1,200. Just because you're near the Atlantic does not mean that you're near the National (just pointing out that some east coasters are not near a National no matter how close it is to the ocean)



Other than that two cents.......  I have more... when planning a National or a Regional  one of the top concerns should be camping. The location should  include a nearby  campground, for those of us who like to camp and I like to camp.  


I always made it a point to plan a National with camping nearby. I don't recall if I succeeded with Montrose, but I feel that the others were adequate. Or at least no one complained loud enough for me to hear Shrug



On the  subject of Sonora, Ca. it's a  great area with some great roads, to far south, but it's OK. (I would prefer Oregon)  


Headscratch
Why Oregon? Is it because you don't want to travel too far from home or because the roads are great?

I thought that was for your WCRM announcement.

But yeah I guess those locations for a national could work.  Just wish Nevada had something. Smile


Shit, you and me both.
