And the envelope says… it's Fall Into Eureka Springs!

The count is in, and by popular vote the dates for the UnRally II will be October 7-9, 2003. It is also my pleasure to inform you that the Un2 HQ/Gathering Place will be located at the Iron Horse Stables!

Iron Horse is located about 6 miles East of downtown ES on highway 62. There’s more of us then them, so the cabin-type rooms will be booked quickly. Be advised that the phone number is (479) 253-0440 – the number on their website does not reflect the updated area code. Also please note that as this is a rustic motorcycling-oriented place, they ain’t got no cable TV, and they ain’t got no phones!

We looked at several locations for hosting the Un2, and the Iron Horse Stables offered the best overall facility by far. Here’s what we looked for, and what they have for us:

Plenty of camping space
Cabin-type rooms available
Flat-level parking for the whole group
Covered gathering spots
Campfire pits
Restaurant
Motorcycle Shop (the wrenching kind)
Friendly Proprietors (State Rep. Phil Jackson and his lovely wife Jeannie)

And my favorite part.... (been keeping this one a secret from the planning group, heh, heh) their cook is the same chef who cooks for Bubba’s BBQ, and he’s all ours if we want him. Wooo-Hoooo-B-Q!

Being the vacation destination that Eureka Springs is, there are plenty of lodging accommodations on highway 62 leading to town, as well as downtown in the historical section where beautiful B&B’s rule. Below is a listing of hotel/motels closeby, with mileage measured from Iron Horse Stables toward downtown.

1.3m - Cherokee Mountain Lodge
1.8m – Blue Bird Motel (gravel sloped lot, but close)
2.6m – Alpen Dorf Motel (good flat parking, kids stay free)
3.6m – Kettle Campground (For KTM Doug’s Big Rig!)
3.6m – Country Mountain Inn (outdoor hot-tub)
4.0m – EXXON Station
4.0m – Super 8
4.0m – Howard Johnson Express
4.5m – Motel 6 (a really nice one!)
4.8m – Razorback Lodge (looks nice - quaint!)
4.9m – Rose Garden Inn
5.0m – Evening Shade Cottages B&B
5.2m – Apple Blossom Inn (looks nice!)
5.3m – East Mountain Lodge
5.4m - Holiday Inn Express
6.0m – Swiss Holiday Resort (motorcycle friendly, good parking)
6.2m – Comfort Inn
6.3m – Swiss Village Inn (motorcycle friendly, good parking)
6.8m – Best Western Eureka Inn (At turn-off to historic section of ES)

There’s way more! Hint: make initial reservations, then sit back while we compile more information for you. If you decide to take a different route than the big gang, you’ll have plenty of options. Most hotel/motel contact information can be found at EurekaSprings.org

LET’S MOTO!

Just to clarify for my unclear mind the FUN officially starts on the 7th so most folks will want to arrive the afternoon of the 6th to relax and BS a bit?

Arriving on Monday is nice. That way you wake up to the beginning of the Un-Rally on Tuesday morning.

I'm arriving early - I don't have far to go. Besides, I want to practice on those roads. From what I saw, it's lean, set up, lean, set up, lean, set up...and every 3-5 miles you get a straightaway.

Can you say WHOOOOOHOOOOOOOOOOO?!!

in.

I'll be off like a jock strap at Neils house, on Fri. nite, and ride til I can't. It's a mere 1300 & change from Vegas, so I'll indeed book a SS 1K on the way. The extra early arrival time will allow for some sight seeing, like maybe a trip to DBs 'hood, to peep the Smokies. Love it.

Although I originally voted for the May meet, I really like these dates too. Some may think that weather concerns may be an issue, but I think that with some good route planning and some proper planning overall, everyone will have a great visit.

Now kids, Brother Jake has put more work into this already than he'll EVER let on, so let's show how much we appreciate his (and others) hard work, and turn out large. That's right. East, West, North, South!! This ain't too far for anyone to ride. So service your steed, tell the boss to kiss your @$$, and we'll see you all in Eureka Springs Texas in August. YEEEEEHAAAAAAA........Let's Party!!!!


I don't know what your problem is, but I'll bet it's hard to pronounce

I have the same thinking as you about knocking off an IBA or two, at any rate, I'll be arriving Sunday, leaving Friday. AND since I'm my own boss, I don't have any a** to kiss, just schedule around it.

I gotta line us some more clients, Mayhem, BMWMOA, UN2 - yee ha!
