Attending an unrally requires considerable foresight and planning for the participants!
You should have known better!!!!!!!!!

BINGO!!!

You have NO excuses for next year.

If you're not there, I'll hunt you down, & threaten you with some sort of psychological violence.

Either that, or you may be the next RoadPhil. \:\/

Jamie.... well stated! I believe that most members look forward to each get together and the opportunity to meet someone new. After every event, I know that both Richard and I always say "glad we met so and so, but so and so was also there and we didn't meet them. How did we let that happen!"

Wait, what was that sound??? Was that you volunteering to be RoadMatt next year?

Wait, that would leave me with the kids.... nevermind. A week alone with the twins would definitely surpass any psychological threat you could throw my way..

But Matt, by then the twins will be "One-ish." Surely the shine won't have worn off yet for Grandma!

Couple of random thoughts -

Maybe a pre-scouting of the available hotels? "American such and such is bargain basement", "Quality whatever" is upscale, new", etc. It seems every year at least one hotel is a flee bag and should/could be on an 'avoid' list.

I liked the Friday morning breakfast, gave people one last time to connect. But maybe at a fixed specific time instead of a wide time window, to get everyone there together like the evening meal? And also it seems like $50 per person needs to include both to be a good value.

If there had been a stack of the predefined printed routes instead of just one copy to look at, that might have been more helpful.

Doctor I need to learn how to relax faster.

If you want to ride tomorrow, ride quietly today.
Quiet is cool, silent is sexy.

I agree I would flea that one at all coasts.

The $50 did include both meals...if you knew that and are making a different point, please clarify.
