2018 Eastern V-Strom Rally, Stecoah, NC. May 17-20, 2018
The Eastern Rally is already "booked" at The Iron Horse Lodge/Campground for May 17-20th again in 2018......the weekend between Mother's Day and Memorial Day weekend. The IH is holding the entire campground for us "V-Strommers" until January 14th to make our room/cabin/bunkhouse reservations, and then they will open it up to the General Public starting January 15th. REMEMBER: call the Iron Horse prior to January 15th if you want your same room, or different "digs" from last year. Tent Campers require no reservations at this time.
As Stalky Tracker has mentioned in a previous thread, our Eastern V-Strom Rally was written-up in the Blue Ridge Motorcycling Magazine back during the summer. Great article, as it spoke highly of what V-strommers are all about. We tried some new ideas this year, and a few riders have already volunteered to help with the 2018 Rally, bringing some of their different ideas to the organizing table........should be fun, different, but also the "same"......if that makes any sense??!! The Wheels thru Time Museum Ride/Tour was a huge hit with the dozen or so riders who went this year on Saturday. Look for it again in 2018.
This is not really a "Sign-up" Thread (just yet), but more of a reminder to make your reservations ASAP, and maybe ask Santa for some farkles in your stocking?? Look for new faces leading the pack in 2018, but with the same old "veterans" there helping out as well.
The Eastern Rally is the same weekend as the Romney, WV get-together.......which sounds like an outstanding rally itself from past responses here on the forum. Sometimes you just gotta pick your battles and go into them..........
Merry Christmas/Happy New Year/and God Bless........
