It is a definite go. Bluethunder is working on accomadations. Hopefully we will have a bigger turnout this year although we had a nice size group last year. The more the merrier. Hope you can join us. Met some really nice guys and gals last year

Hi all,
I attended last year's event and had a great time. Met lots of great folks and developed a new friendship. I have blocked off Sept. 13 - 16 for this year's ride and am looking forward to it. I live in Niagara on the Lake, ON, Canada and would be happy to help from a distance so let me know if I can. Be happy to call hotels, plan rides, etc. If anyone is going through Buffalo or Niagara Falls I can put you up on the Canadian side Wednesday night so we can ride there together on Thursday. Same on return trip. Let me know. I'll keep checking this thread.
Cheers,
Jim

Hi Jim,
Thanks for your offer to help. We have a couple of guys researching a suitable motel. Details will be posted soon. Will keep you mind.

On another note, check out the MidWest ride in the Upper Peninsula Michigan in July. Its right in your neck of the woods.

Thanks. I looked at it and, unfortunately, we have company that week but I appreciate you're mentioning it.

Cheers,

Jim

Would love to attend this year. Was laid up with a complete torn right shoulder rotator cuff last year. Posted a reply so I can get updates.

Hampton Suites - Parkersburg South
64 Elizabeth Pike
Mineral Wells, West Virginia, 26150

304-489-2900

A block of rooms have been reserved under the name "GoldWings Docs" group. Mention the group name to get the room discount
The hotel has Free Wifi, free hot breakfast daily, outdoor heated pool, and plenty of parking for those who plan on trailering rather than riding.

Rooms are non-pet, non-smoking, double occupancy. Room rates are $95/night (discounted $55/night for us) for double occupancy. Find a roomie and the rate is $47.50/night.

Please be aware that you must reserve your room no later than September 3rd. After that date, rooms are available on an available basis and at the then available rate (i.e. no group discount). Also note that you have until September 11th to change or cancel a room.

I started another thread to make motel info easier to read and find.
