2017 Eastern Vstrom Rally Reminder.........

This thread is to remind all possible attendees to mark your calendar next year for the weekend AFTER Mother's Day........Thurs May 18 - Sunday May 21.........for the 2017 Eastern Vstrom Rally to be held again at The Iron Horse Campground/Lodge in Stecoah, NC. (see their website here: Ironhorse Motorcycle Lodge | 828-479-3864 Iron Horse Motorcycle Lodge near Tail of the Dragon at Deals Gap and Cherohala Skyway ). The Iron Horse will HOLD all rooms, cabins, and bunkhouse beds for us Vstrommers until the first week in January, then they open up the facilities to whoever wants to Reserve it. DO NOT WAIT.......call them now, make a reservation, cancel later if need be......or sell it to another Vstrom attendee left out in the cold next Spring. Charlene (owner) is kind enough to hold all the rooms for us year after year, please show your support of the rally and call them now (they close their season October 30 and may not answer the phone).

Mo, Larry, and Curley from the 2016 Rally have already started conversations about next year's event. New "planners" and "cat herders" will be involved with (hopefully) new ideas to make our great event even "greater". Two or three members have already volunteered to help.......if you are interested as well, contact the Eastern Rally Website at: Eastern V-Strom Rally - Home . Don't worry, we are not making drastic changes for the 4 days, we just want to get new ideas floating around so we can pick from a "menu" of possible activities. If you know you will be attending the 2017 Rally, notify the Rally website and get your name added to the Attendee Roster.

Remember: "What happens at the Rally, never stays at the Rally".......

Remember: "What happens at the Rally, never stays at the Rally"..
I can verify that statement! Some rally attendees are planning already for 2017. My small group hopes to have a variety of new routes to ride again and we will share those with all that attend. There will be excitement and THERE WILL BE RAIN!! COUNT ON IT!!.
Some rides will be short enough that we may get 2 rides each day or we may be able to combine rides if we can find interesting connecting paths or roads. HIGH on my list for 2017 is another visit to Wheels through Time museum. A couple of us spent some time there in 2016 but we quickly noted the need for another visit to see Dale and his amazing collection.
Remember, we do not care what you ride as long as you ride 2 wheels with a motor, extra points if it is a STROM. Many that attended in 2016 indicated that it was their first time to the Eastern Rally, all said they would be back and could not believe they had waited so long to attend this popular event.
So don't be shy, come join us in 2017 and see what fun we have. We do not have meetings, officers, dues or any of the other organized club type items. We just arrive and have fun. We do have a very few folks that spend a significant amount of time bringing it all together and they sure do a great job of organizing a very disorganized group.
Plans change daily at the event as far as rides and destinations go but that is half the fun. Rides are planned usually the evening before and there are many choices and maps of routes available every day.
Come join the fun. Many of us have been attending for years and it is one rally that never gets old nor is it ever boring. THERE WILL BE EXCITEMENT!!
See you there.

I would be up for that if I can come, all depends on whether I take my big West trip or not.

I'll be there! I've missed the last couple of years because the MotoAmerica races at VIR were on the same weekend. This year the races are the weekend before. I'll be camping close to the creek with my new (used) 2008 DL650. Thanks to Mark444, Foxfire and ALL the organizers of this fine event.

New Stromtrooper here. This rally is an hour and a half from my house. I can't imagine not coming - wife approval required of course.
