10th OctoVRfest Rally - Cooperstown, NY - Sept 28-Oct 1, 2017

This is the 10th!!!!!! and it’s coming back to where it started @ Cooperstown, NY

we will be staying at the Apple Inn https://appleinnandsuites.com/

when you call (607-643-2377) please say you are from VolusiaRiders as the owner has blocked the entire motel for us. Please book ASAP as there are only 15 rooms available.

Dates will be 9/28 - 10/1 as it is a weekend the Giants are not playing home so it does not conflict with my co-hosting duties. Location still to be decided in Cooperstown.

pbryon will be co-hosting and will be plotting some great rides.

Tentative Dinner plans are:

Thursday: chip in, order Pizza and have it delivered to the Apple Inn
Friday: Rallyers are free to venture on their own.
Saturday: BBQ, the Apple Inn has three grills and we will grill hot dogs, hamburgers, and Chorizo.

Who is going and has made reservations:
Rob61 & Dave
BearBait & Woodswoman
DCinCT & Barb
Vortex1x & elmoann +dad
Coffee man and Monica

Planning on Attending - Room not booked
Capt Cruiser
Beezer & Belinda

Maybe attending
Mr Johnny...

05 C50 --> 05 C90 --> 07 FLHX --> 08 GL1800 / 1994 FXSTS --> 2007 DL650 (sold) / 2011 FLTRU --> ?

Going to make a solid effort to make this one, even if it's just Friday and Saturday night.

We (Woodswoman and I) will be attending, and will book as soon as you select a place and dates. I will say that that cliff-dwelling motel of 10 years ago was a bit difficult to get into and out of, though.

Well, considering there was no fire at this year's, ahem, I consider that a hollow threat. You didnt even find ice and make coolers out of my panniers...
