2013 Vstrom Rally, SE Guys/Gals.......

I just want to make sure all the Regional folks know about the yearly Vstrom Rally at the Iron Horse in May. We had 40-50 "strommers" last year. If you've never been, plan to do so this May........make your Reservation now, or chance not being able to stay at "Rally Central" (Iron Horse Campground)!!
More info........

It's a real bummer that this ride and the Eastern ADV Rendesvous keep happening on the same weekend. Y'all should try to work it out next year for different dates IMHO. That one will have close to 200 riders and is based in Hampton TN this year. I would love to make the Strom Rally and really like the Iron Horse Lodge but Ricks Ride is such a hoot I can't pass it up. That and others can be found on the ADV forum. Have fun

I agree as I would like to attend both also. But I did not plan either one and i'm sure the planning was not easy. I've been to Rick's party before but not the vstrom gathering. I've ridden all the roads around the dragon and very few over near hampton. choices.....

Changing the date (next year) for the Vstrom Rally is not as easy as it sounds.......we have to book the lodge a year in advance if we want a guarantee of getting it. Maybe the RR rally will change their dates?? You need to look at the calender: there are lots of factors involved, unless the Rally is pushed out to June (too hot? + getting into family vacation time), or reeled in to the end of April or 1st of May.....Mother's Day is May 12, Memorial Day May 27 (this year) so those dates are out. I have never been to a RR Rally....I assume it is more "spirited" than maybe the Vstrom Rally?? If the two rallys were back to back weekends, who would attend both......not many I would think, unless you live in Tenn/NC area?? I'm not saying we cannot change the Vstrom date for 2014.......maybe a meeting and/or "vote" of the attendees during this year's rally is in order. Sometimes you just need to pick your battles and go with it.......????

I totally understand as being a former president of a couple different shooting clubs, scheduling can be a PITA.
