    PUT UP OR SHUT UP TIME FOLKS! CAN ALL MEMBERS THAT SAID THEY WERE GOING GIVE A FINAL ROLL CALL? Ok, I will stop yelling now. :lol: Invites are dropping like flies it seems. We have had several cancellations, and I haven't heard from other responses from any other members that said they were going orignally, so I wanted to see who still was interested. Please respond back yes or no you still want to go ASAP. The less people that are going it seems, in turn sometimes causes others to drop plans as well. No worries if you cannot make it, we just want to know up front is all. If invities keep dropping, maybe we will look at a "possible" location change to centralize things....since all the northern folks are not coming now. I know that originally the long distance was an issue for many. I (derstuka) am not attending the Reno meetup. I will be doing a coastal ride (SLO and Monterey area) due to cancellations, and other restraints.

    Thank ya kindly for your input!
    Hotel drewl is closed. Some of us are relocating to a new coastal ride to centralize since nothern folks are not coming. The meetup is NOT cancelled, I just will not be attending Reno. Drewl's place is closed as well. You all are more than welcome to continue this. I hope that you do. Sorry for the inconvenience. Anybody is well to join the few that are meeting up around SLO and/or Monterey. Those plans are being worked out currently.

    Update:

    Preliminary schedule:
    Friday 8/22:cruise down to Reno-check in to repsective hotels
    Sat 8/23-cruise down to Reno-check in to repsective hotels
    Sun 8/24- Reno (possible ride around Tahoe)
    Mon 8/25- Reno ?? (Some folks will be departing, others staying)
    Tue 8/26-ride out. C YA.


    Sun and Mon have not been scheduled yet because there are amny possibilities for fun and more riding. Those of you that know the area can add input. Some early ideas are to visit Historic Virginia City(a few miles south of Reno) and a ride up to Lake Tahoe( less than an hour from Reno-best left for Monday to avoid weekend traffic).


    List of folks coming so far and where they are coming from (Note some of these folks will be meeting directly in Reno)

    8. Pvancle (SF bay area, CA)

    I missed my annual ride with the buds last weekend because I totaled my 98 two days before the ride, but I will be getting another VFR soon and would love to cruise up there to get a nice ride in this summer. I'll see if Cruzinaz wants to go too. I'll see him tomorrow night. Let you know. It would be better if it were in July because my school year begins the first week of August. Brian

    I'm on vacation the first week of August but pretty free otherwise, I'd be very interested in this. I'd also be happy to help out with any logistics since I only live 60 miles away from Tahoe.

    I'm a definite maybe. The ride there is no prob for me, but I have the trip up to WA that I have to think about. I missed making it all the way up last year so I don't want to miss it this year. I have my vacation blocked out sometime in Aug and the plans to go to Italy got canxd so I'll have to check with the wife and see if she wants to try and do this if it happens.

    EDIT: checked out plans with wife and I am available from July 25th - Aug 4th... She is working the mid state fair for some extra cash so I can ride solo and spend the extra cash on strippers and booze! yeehaw! Now, you guys figure out when you want to do what. I meet whereever as long as I get home by the 4th.
