Possible East Coast meet and greet '06???

1. How many fellow Strommers would be interested in a big East Coast Meet and Greet?
2. If you are interested, where would be a good location for it?

The reason I am posting this is because the other post I read about an EC M&G last year seemed to go nowhere. Did it happen or not.? I know that the BRP is usually the first choice for this type of thing because of the scenic riding conditions and the fairly central location , but are there any other options that are overlooked? Possibly one of the beach towns along the Atlantic? It would be nice to hear some opinions and suggestions on this.

I started a poll to see how many people would be interested in this.

I can't take responsibility for organizing this, nor would I want to. I just don't have the time to attempt to organize this. I just wanted to get some wheels rolling in getting something like this together.

I'm interested, ut I don't know the coast all that well. Maybe the Jersey Shore? Anyone from Jersey here?

There is one in North Carolina some time in May I think.

There was talk of one last year in the mid Atlantic, but nothing came of it as far as know. I think it is just a matter of somebody grabbing the ball and running with. It would probably be a hit.

For another idea, we could open this up to all Strom riders and as many other poeple they can get and see how many bikes we can get together in one place. Maybe pick a lage campground somewhere as lodging. Let me know if you guys think it would be a good idea to move this post to the general section.

East Coast Meet n' Greet

Spongebob218,

Great idea. I'm only 40 minutes from you. I'm ready. Mid-Ohio vintage days in Lexington, Ohio is a good spot. Camping for the entire weekend is only $15 in the infield of the racetrack. There are thousands of bikes, vendors, etc. The marque of the year is Aprilia. Racing occurs all weekend. There are also seminars. The following weekend is AMA Superbike.

Lake George, NY Americade is also an option.

Anyplace in TN or KY?

If the event is planned around/in/near something that is already occurring....then the organization is on someone else. If the event we're piggybacking on is too big, we may have a hard time getting into hotels and restaurants.

Just thoughts.

Thats a good idea, here's a couple sites that list all the rallies and swap meets for '06.

Here are links to 2 events that look interesting:

Wakin the Dragon Biker Rally, June 2-3, in Tennessee at the Dragon.
http://www.wakinthedragonbikerrally.com/index.html

AMA Vinyage Motorcycle Days, July 28-30, Mid Ohio Sports Car Course.
http://www.midohio.com/track/directions.asp

It doesn't seem that lodging would be a problem for either.

If you other guys think it would be a good idea, I'd like to start a "Calling All Stromtroopers" thread in the General section if we can decide on a location.
