Get together Oct. 4 - 6th 2019 Tweed, Ont

I'm toying with the idea of doing a fall event for next year.
I know VTom used to run one in Harcourt every fall, but I don't think that has gone on for a few years now.

I have my trailer at a small, quiet park north of Tweed, Ont., which puts it dead centre of many excellent roads - both paved and otherwise. The campground has excellent tenting sites, plus they are adding a couple of small bunkies that are supposed to be for 4 - 6 people. There are full showers & washroom facilities as well. The majority of the campground is located along the river as well.

I was thinking the weekend before thanksgiving - most people are busy with family on thanksgiving, and the park generally closes up that weekend anyway. The weekend before, the weather should still be nice enough for riding and tenting.

I have organized several larger events like this in the past, but this would be more relaxed and informal. Maybe a good close-out to the riding season.

If there's enough people interested, I can enquire what they would charge us , and we can go from there.

What do you think?

I like the idea and would be interested.
Tweed is a great launching pad to head east to the Frontenac region, or north to Kawarthas, Algonquin and Haliburton or northeast toward Calabogie.
The Fall Peep show is often the weekend before, so it might be a conflict for those that would like to come out to this.
Yes a group rate would be good!
