Less then 2 months away. Time to put new shoes on the bike, replace that broken turn signal, chain's good, oil is fine, get some long underwear in case it snows ...
What @Spokes said. It's pretty laid back. Especially this year with COVID concerns and border closures limiting attendance. There are usually a couple folks hanging around Iron Horse's office greeting and harassing folks. And folks gather around the bikes in the Lodge parking area and around the map counter inside the Lodge. After dinner, we usually meet upstairs for announcements and discussions. Followed by the telling of lies around the fire pit by the creek.For us first timers....Will there be a schedule/agenda for rides/events? I wanna get in as much riding as possible. Not sure how structured this is.
J.........I'm thinking the IH will continue to host "gatherings" as the number of Covid Cases (hopefully) start decreasing the next few weeks.........BUT.........with schools opening, there is no telling what the numbers will do. The Barber Festival had 65,000 in attendance last year......there would be no way for the Barber Management/Staff to handle that many people safely....don't think we can compare our rally to a large event like that. During the rally, we may need to wear masks......or just keep our helmets on all the time!! And also watch how close we sit during the meals......Keep us all up to date should ironhorse decide to hang us all out to dry, ..........
I bet by then, Mickey, you will be "harder than a honeymoon di...."........excited I mean. Can't wait to see everyone and take-up our parking lot conversations from last year's event....!!Called IH this morning and got my lodging arranged so I’ll see you in October. Looking forward to it!
