V-Strom Gathering East - May 15-18 2014

The Twelfth Annual V-Strom Gathering East is scheduled for May 15-18 2014, held at the Ironhorse Motorcycle Lodge in Stecoah, NC.

The Ironhorse will hold all of the rooms and cabins for our event until January 14th, so make your reservations ASAP (phone 828-479-3864). Tell them you are with the V-Strom group.

For those not familiar with the Ironhorse Motorcycle Lodge; it offers private rooms, semi-private rooms, bunkhouses, cabins, RV hook ups, and tent camping sites. All sleeping areas are within 200 feet of the lodge. The lodge is equipped with a massive projection TV, dining area, game area, a theater room, tons of maps of the area, a computer, free internet, a gift shop/store, a huge back porch with rocking chairs, a fire pit, and very nice showers and restrooms. Breakfast and dinner are served on site. Everything there is FIRST CLASS!

A few other things...

Tent campers do not need to make reservations.

If you make reservations or plan to tent camp, please post in this thread for planning purposes.

The Ironhorse is in a dry county so bring your own, if you are so inclined.

Folks will arrive Thursday (15th) and Friday (16th). Most head home Sunday morning.

Most group rides will be Friday and Saturday.

All bikes are welcome.

Hope to see you there!
Todd

I'll be camping. I'll most likely start my ride the weekend before and do some camping at Willville, Blue ridge MC campground, or TWoS in Georgia---just in case someone want to join up early.

Rally.......

The Ironhorse will hold all of the rooms and cabins for our event until January 14th, so make your reservations ASAP (phone 828-479-3864). Tell them you are with the V-Strom group.

Take note of this date. The IH will open up their lodging to the General Motorcycle Public which might mean "another" group (think, Saving Lives here...:mrgreen and we Stromers could become a minority that weekend. I don't mean to sound anti-social, but if you are on the fence about going, reserve a room anyway before Jan 14, then cancel later (or sell it to a vstrom member who is looking for a room 1 month prior to the event......always happens).

If you have never been to this Rally, go back thru the Events archives and look at some of the pics of previous rallies at the IH. We typically have a great time!!!!!!!!

Over 100 Attendees at the May 2019......already planning it for 2020!!

Here is the Ironhorse Reservation Policy:

To reserve your room, cabin, or bunkhouse contact the Ironhorse at 828-479-3864 or by email ([email protected]).
-60 days prior to arrival you will be charged a one night deposit
-60 to 31 days prior to arrival, cancellation will result in your deposit returned less $20
-30 days prior to arrival, cancellation will result in forfeiting your deposit

As you can see, you can book now and have plenty of time to make your final decision.

The Ironhorse WILL fill up, and quickly once our "hold" is released. So make your reservation now.

Ironhorse is in a dry county but you can buy and bring in. They have coolers there and ice for rent/use. The Nantahala outdoor center has very nice set up on the river with tables, hammocks, draft and craft beer. This is a very good spot to hang out after rideing a few hundred miles...just in case nobody knew
