the only issue with earlier or later in the year, you cut out most members related to education industry. Most teachers, counselors, admin stafff etc, and in many cases the spouse of these professions cannot take off once school starts. On the other hand, you can never satisfy everyone, so just make your choice and go with it. We just had an UN about 4 hours from my house and due to family issues, I could not even make one day. however I made the whole 2008 UN in Oregon easily. It seems you just never know.

You're right, Randy. Although I'm not sure of your point.

In a matter of ten minutes, I planned a 50CC, made arrangements to escort 2bmwfan, & although her bike quit on her, WE made adjustments to luggage & made John Day on time & without trailer.

Since Matt & Shawn are my close friends, I'd rather have made their Un than suffer the economic effects of late.

I presume your post with regard is about timing. I get that. Because if economic timing were better, I'd have been in Little Switzerland instead of Switzerland

your correct, I was just making reference to the fact earlier or later has as much affect (in some cases) as weather/temp/location might. It seems in my case, the UN's I make are unexpected and the UN's I miss, it seems like Murphy's law. I was only referencing my experiences not commenting on anyone else's.

This place looks wonderful, but I think the room rates for peak season will be too steep for our group.

I don't think you can consider cost an issue from the published rates. Groups usually can obtain a lower price point. If you looked at the published rates for the Switzerland Inn, they were somewhere between 20-40% higher than our group rate.

This place, Mount Magazine, looks great and seems to be in a nice riding area. However, it's short comings seem (after only a short perusal of their website and no discussion of group discounts) to be more a matter of too few beds and limited food/gas options.

It's only a 60-room lodge, with a total of 103 beds. If we include the cabins, that adds an additional 22 bedrooms with beds (though there may be sleeper sofa arrangements, I don't know). But in the end it would seem they could only accomodate right around 125 folks, plus some number of folks doubling up in beds (i.e., couples or really, understanding single folk).

It appears there are few gas options readily available and fewer food options.

None of these are a showstopper, but generally the larger the group, the more are needed/appreciated. Generally ...

Well said my friend.

That's exactly the foundation of every UnRally we've had. And while the discussion of potential locations is great, remember that we rotate them from west to east and back every year. This year, it's the west's turn to host it.

To that end, the UnRally Number 11 forum is open. There you'll find an explanation of what's needed in terms of location for such an event. Take a look and see if you're the kind of person who has the organizational skills to put this event on for the membership. Remember, it doesn't have to be complicated. It's not a Rally. It's an UNRally. So find a location with a hotel, camping, and great roads and scenery. Follow the rest of the guidelines, and submit your proposal.

Approximately. But discussions of where people would like to have the Un are fruitless without a team submission of where people will work to actually put the Un on. IOW, "We Want" doesn't get it done as well as "We Will." To that end, yes, we are accepting complete proposals for the 2013 Un, to be head in the Eastern half of the continent.

If anyone wants to submit a proposal for the 2013 Un, and wants to know what the parameters are that they should be working within, please contact me or any Admin and we'll be glad to put together those guidelines for you.
