Planning is underway for the Annual Get Together for 2019.
Dates are Sept 21-28, 2019.
Location is Sylva NC (near Maggie Valley and Blue Ridge Parkway).

It's very early for ride planning, etc. Just wanted to give any interested people info to flag calendars.

A lot of good riding in that area. Been there lots of times and always enjoyed it. I am done with the Dragon though, better rides elsewhere and not as crazy!

Marked.

I believe SweetLu was going to have the OctoVRfest (which is held in September) down there in 2019 as well.

Jim and I have exchange emails. I don’t know if it is a good thing to have both rallies at the same time in the same hotel..... same time, but different hotels.... or just have it different times and hotels.

Each option has it’s plusses and minuses.

On the positive, by combining both, we can have a huge diverse rally.

By having it at different locations (same time), we could organize a meet and greet. either a ride, or a dinner.

perhaps people like to have their own rally identity...then different dates. If so, I’m thinking of doing OctoVRfest in the first week of October. (i know, I know).

to all, especially AGT rally-ers (since it is your thread and sorry for the hijack), feel free to chime in.

I guess it might help to know how many riders you normally get. As you know we will probably get 20-25 couples. I have a commitment from the hotel for 25 rooms but I'm sure that is flexible.
Where do you normally have your rally, I think you mentioned Maggie Valley. That's close enough to have a common ride if we want or a meet-up somewhere.
I would not think it's good to have a huge number in one place for logistics of rides, etc.

My guess it would be an additional 10 riders only since a few of the usual OctoVRfest attendees were at this yearís AGT in NM.

We do the rally at a new location every year, but itís always in the east and we break up in groups when we ride. In addition, we only schedule it for four days, Thursday - Sunday. In Maggie Valley, there is plenty of places to ride, so I donít see adding a lot of riders to a group ride, in fact, I was planning to lead rides on Friday and Saturday.
