Hello to all Sons of Practicality!
Poconos, PA has been voted by the group as the location for the 7th NEVA (North East [mostly] Vstrom Adventure) event.
The organizers this year are my self, Alon and NJBill.
NEVA 2017 is going to be great. We are going to have the following features:
1. Three (!) day event. Starting at Thursday evening and ending on Sunday. This will give us plenty of time to explore the beautiful area and have some more adventures (see below)
3. Decals (AKA Dickels
5. On Friday we plan a fun water activity on the Delware river!
I just came back from a weekend at the designated camp site, Keen Lake Campground, PA.
It is absolutely stunning. They have a private lake and can accommodate our group. There are tent sites as well as cabins.
Dates: Thu 8/3/2017 - Sun 8/6/2017
The registration starts on January 2nd, 2017, but I talked to the managers and they are willing to open up the registration for us as a whole group, tents only, right now.
We do have to put a deposit per each tent site.
They are not interested in managing right now a single registration for each rider for that large tent area that can fit us.
If we wait to January 2nd then we are not guaranteed that the site will be available.
Furthermore, those that want to order cabins will have to do so at standard registration - that is starting January 2nd.
This is a very sought after campground so the high demand means we need to act fast. It is well worth it.
Once we get the full attendance list, in a matter of 3-4 weeks, then I will collect a deposit from each of you and then make the order and pay them once big deposit. PayPal instructions will follow, but we have time for that.
To start that we have opened a Google Excel spreadsheet with all attendees.
Please email me your details:
2. Call Sign
with the title NEVA 2017
And I will provide you access to that file and to future resources - such as GPX files, photos, videos etc.
I don't want those private files to be exposed to the entire internet.
The Google Doc has the following information for you to fill:
Decal (AKA Dickel)?
Shirt Type (T-Shirt, Hoodie)
Friday Delaware River water activities?
Let the party start!
