7th annual Buckeye Labor Day camp and ride!

Back by popular demand...and due to the great turn out we have every year...I'm proud to announce...it's on!!!

2015 7th Annual "Buckeye Bash" Labor Day Weekend Rally!!!!!!!!!!!!
September 4th, 5th, and 6th...Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.

11030 LAKE ROAD
MILLERSPORT, OH 43046

Before it's even asked...no, this will not be a Stromtrooper Specific Rally, although more Stroms are "likely" to be there than any other bike model.

My Buddy Glen who we host at his amazing property doesn't have a V-Strom, and due to that...we'd like to make this a "non bike specific" Rally. All that really matters is good friends are getting back together to enjoy a common interest...RIDING!!! With this said...I really hope no toes are stepped on...and that everyone comes and has a great time!!! Now in saying that, I can assure everyone that pirates and squids won't be there. :mrgreen:

This is going to be run the same as every year...arrive Friday afternoon/evening, rides will take place on Saturday "typically leave between 9/10 am", cook out Saturday night, depart whenever you feel like it on Sunday.

Food: Something easy Friday night...probably order Pizza...whatever...

Light breakfast consisting of coffee, pancakes, some kind of donuts and sausage will be provided Saturday and "maybe" on Sunday.

Lunch on Saturday will depend on who you're riding with...basically you're on your own...or wherever the group decides to stop.

Cook out and Bon Fire Saturday night.

Basic Beverages will be provided....water, pop, etc...

Alcohol is up to you!!! :biggrinjester:

Accommodations:

There is plenty of Camping area and on site bathroom and shower facilities. There are also a few local Hotels "but book early due to the local sweetcorn Festival".

Every year everyone is more than gracious chipping in money for the food and beverages served during the event...so instead of charging people a fee...we'd like to keep things as they have worked...DONATE to the host if you're eating/drinking!!!

I love putting this on, and we always have such a great time riding and reminiscing with old friends while making new ones. Weather is typically in our favor, but can still be pretty hot in Ohio. We have some amazing riding in Ohio for those of you that are not aware, and we hit some of the best roads the buckeye state has to offer. So I hope we have a great turnout this year, please use the poll to give me an idea for a headcount, so I know as to how much food to have. THANKS.......and really looking forward to this!!!!!

Brian, Looking forward to my third "Big B" Labor Day ride! I'm bringing a bottle of "Royal Lochnagar" 12 yo Scotch to share. It's a gift I received that I can't fully appreciate because of health reasons, but I know of no other group of riders I would rather share this sipping delight!. This is a ride where the good company equals the great routes.

I'm in with possible guests, i.e. Lenny and Joe from the Wolf Run event on their merdersickles. Maybe Rob, the coworker with the GSA as well.
