Seems like we are missing Mid to Late September option here (in our poll) comparing to another two

Guess I am fortunate with my best riding buds, as we are all on the same page when it comes to literally anything and everything.
I've been to Romney cycles probably 12 or 15 times over the last couple of years its fairly close to home. I have also been to Romney Cycle on a Saturday when the rally was taking place but not as a participant just as a coincidence. As far as actually intentionally attending/participating in the rally that is something I am not likely to do. Too many people for me.

That's correct. With the system for some reason denying the posting of this poll, I achieved it in the end by omitting surplus text, all symbols, and reduced the poll to only six options.

For some reason the software did not like one of those items. I'm going with the use of brackets but without further testing I am not sure which was the cause.

If you do want to vote for Mid to Late September, please enter that choice with a post entitled "Mid to Late September", and Wreckchecker or Dirt_Dad will find it and include your choice in their decision. So many people attempted to post this poll that I do not wish to now start modifying it.

Good suggestion. We'll make the work. Thanks again for your assistance in getting this poll out there. All my attempts were met with rejection.

I think Wreckchecker did a good job over on ADV of summarizing what we are discussing. He's even come up with a question that you can just respond to here on this thread.

I doubt anyone will really be surprised to learn when you open up a poll in three different motorcycle sites, you're going to get three completely different answers. I expected that, and man did it prove to be true. The numbers below are what Wreckchecker was saying in ADV about the numbers there. Our Trooper numbers are different, but you get the idea.

Wellll - We have 16 votes each for the traditional weekend before Mother's Day and the weekend after Memorial Day, which would be June 1-3. People have been pretty vocal about not holding Romney in the July/August heat of summer and the polling reflects that. Dirt Dad and I have also had questions about having Romney in the Fall and we are open to it, as are the folks at the dealership.


Getting a food vendor on site for breakfasts is still a challenge for any of the three weekends still in discussion. Not saying it won't happen, but odds are not good right now. Since there is so much close up-town, it shouldn't be a huge problem. btw - If you haven't tried the VFW breakfast it's pretty good.


We are down to three weekends. Looking at competing events already scheduled or when they took place in 2018 puts the least competition on Labor Day weekend. Our first years at Romney were great weather and this year the weekend before Mother's Day is actually in May, so hopefully we can get a year of good weather again. Holiday weekends are two-sided swords, in that it lets people travel farther or relax, versus many have family commitments.


So here's a mini-poll for those three dates: Simply post which one of the three you prefer:
May 3-5 (Traditional Romney date of weekend before Mother's Day)
May 31-June 2 (is after Memorial Day Monday)
Aug 30-Sep 1 (is Labor Day weekend)


fwiw, To see part of how we got here, below is the list of competing events for all of our time that was mentioned above. We pulled together the ADVRider threads and other known events of 2018 and those already announced for 2019. The events ending with a period are announced 2019 dates and those ending with question marks were 2018 dates, so we don't know their 2019 dates. If any of you have corrections to this list, just post them with your vote and I'll update this post.

Thanks for letting me know your preference. If it doesn't work out to be that date it would be a real loss to know you're not going to make it. Should it work out that way I definitely would want to figure out how to catch up. We've got a long history in progress.

Adding up the polls from the various threads, we come up with the following votes in the lead three spots:


29 votes for June 1/2 - After Memorial Day. (Besides, we gotta keep twodogs happy )
.....Potential conflicts: Durty Dabbers?
25 votes for May 4/5, the traditional Romney weekend before Mothers Day.
.....Potential conflicts: Laurel Fork's 2nd weekend, Green Ridge Dual Sport? Classic M/C Day
21 votes for early/mid Sept.
.....Potential conflicts: Blue Ridge ADV NC? BWDR? Snappin Turtle NY? Meadows of Dan? Blue Ridge Rally?


Any more thoughts before we see if any are better or worse for the dealership to host us?
