2019 Romney Camp N Ride!
2019 poll for 2019 Romney Camp N Ride!
As Wreckcheker and Dirt_Dad mentioned this spring, we want feedback on what dates are most attractive for everyone.
Considering it would have been nearly impossible to have picked a dry weekend in 2018, I was inclined to suggest going to our traditional first weekend in May. I brought that up with Romney and was met with hesitation. That weekend is in direct conflict with a the Apple Blossom Festival 40 minutes away. It turns out to be very challenging for Romney to identify food vendors (or even a single vendor) to support the Camp N Ride. The food vendors are at the festival and Larry always has to work hard to find anyone to support us that weekend. Without a doubt, it is the single biggest PITA item for the dealership about hosting the event in early May.
Rather than avoiding early May as an option, we are still putting it up there to see if people are okay with not having on-site food during the Camp N Ride.
The weekend after Mother's Day is also problematic in that is conflicts with multiple other adventure events traditionally held on that weekend. One Strom event and another official ADVrider event, just to name two. It's not our goal to step on any other event. It's on the list, but unless there is overwhelming demand, it's probably not going to be strongly considered.
All the other dates would be totally new for the Camp N Ride. As you vote your preference, please let us know if there are any other events we're not aware of that would make any of these dates undesirable.
You may pick your top two choices.
