+1  I loath the roads between Deal's Gap and Boone, NC on weekends.  So many people have 2nd homes in this area and the roads just get bogged down.

Well this year turned out to be rather low in millage (less than 8k) and time out on the road.
  I would enjoy a ride out to the east (well maybe over the rockies, screw the "flat states") to make up for a poor 2013 riding season

So east of the big river it is, Ya'll on the right side better plan well

Maggie Valley looks to be a prime spot. I would happily burn a week of vacation riding to/at/from there.

Well I'd be in for sure, and as far as STN.... No matter what, no matter if the name changes  or what ever, a meet is a meet as long as its from our crew here, and any new additions who want to join in. Chili

I'm with you there.   Do we need a pole?   I'm seeing a lot of agreement and virtually no dissent.







Hmmm, no dissent, things are changing on STN

I'd make a trip to Maggie Valley if it's held there.

And not to hijack the thread, but, I read the news about the site being sold. I didn't get the impression there was a plan being put together to "improve" the site or or "enhance the forum experience" with anything new. Perhaps I missed a thread? And now back to your regularly scheduled programming.

Just chiming in—I'm totally up for Maggie Valley—as long as we can avoid Dbags all over the backroads (e.g. as long as the backroads are EMPTY during the week). I've been looking for an excuse to take Jamie all the way down the BRP.  Bigok

And I think both of you are taking the comment out of context, nothing came to be last year , so do we let the west try again or move to the next slot in the rotation?? Maybe more than 6 are willing to participate if it moves east, I think Both of you are being a bit touchy for nothing, my 2 cents Rolleyes

I say move it east for this year and stay on rotation.
Part of the problem IMO is WCRM is the week prior to the national. Very few can or want to do both in that two week span. In the future (2015) I'd like to see the WCRM moved to the end of summer so people could do both.

Do we need a poll to select a location?  

Or are we as a group pretty much agreed on Maggie Valley?

Mrs CB – to whom we are all indebted – reported that the Maggie Valley Inn and Conference Center has 100 rooms at $75/night for the Monday/Tuesday/Wednesday nights.  This could be the place as far as I'm concerned.  I started been putting out some feelers on a location.  I like to have lots of options and a diversity of choices.  So I made a sampling of different locations.  Here is what I come up with so far.

SHIL posted up Buckhorn Lake State Resort Park, and I figure anyone who will ride a few 1000k on an SV (or a glow-in-th-dark dual sport) for a couple of cold brews – which he could easily get at home – deserves due consideration.  I like the location myself, although it may not be popular with the larger group because it’s 250 miles from the Dragon.  Which means you’d have to ride the Dragon before or after the meet.  I haven’t spoken with the group manager yet, but they have 36 large rooms and 5 cottages with an average nightly rate around $80.  On the small side, and not a lot of options nearby for food, gas and overflow.  Might make a nice stop-over on the way down.

The Castlewood Inn in Maggie Valley – I liked the look of the parking lot and I think we could fill the place and there are plenty of motels nearby if we overflow – would give us a rate of $60 night.  They have 30 rooms available.  Downside is they have a 7 day cancellation policy or you get charged for 1 night.  Not a good option for many who have unpredictable work schedules.

The Microtel Inn in Robbinsville NC has a reputation for being motorcycle friendly and has 50 rooms at $60/ night average rate.

The Red Roof Inn Johnson City TN has 115 rooms at $60/ night average rate.


Thoughts?     Don't hold back now; let the bitchn' begin.

While I appreciate the effort, you'll be hard pressed to
beat the Maggie Valley Inn for venue, location and price.

And BTW, it's the 16th thru 18th of June.
