1. When you check in at the hotel - please record BOTH your present bike odometer (not trip) reading and the year of your bike. read

2. You'll need to send at least one or more (hint hint) picture(s) of any of: you, your group, your bike and scenery or any such combo from your Blowing Rock trip or ride, along with a specialty marked Box Top to: startfarting@gmail.com. Doing so will enter you into the Blowing Rock Bonanza Not To Be Missed Dinner Quiz Competition™ © fine print: Email your pictures before the meal beer whistle old

3) The bar opens at 5:30 and the meal is at 6:30 on Friday (April20th).

4) Today (Thursday) is your last chance to get in on Friday's meal deal.

5) Just a friendly reminder. Up this way, its not been much of a Spring. Shaking down the bike yesterday for a couple hundred miles revealed dirty roads, large pot holes and plenty of dirt/ gravel here and there. I don't know what the roads are like where you are from or what roads you'll be taking to START, but just a reminder that the road surface may have changed since you rode it last and there may be a few more ...challenges..... on the roadway to be on the lookout for! wave

Kinsley bike and I ohboy are very much looking forward to seeing you all next week! clap yes wave lurk

We're a month out from Blowing Rock and here is a link to the START 2018 Routes .
Note: Route 1 goes to Shatley Springs and they said they will be very busy on Saturday, so you may want to ride that route on another day to avoid crowds.

Ride Safe.

Several of us have had the same issue. I'm sure the problem is that the reservations site shows the rooms as "blocked", and won't allow them to be reserved online. I'm sure calling the hotel will work just fine.

EDIT: just called the hotel and reserved a room for Bob (Endobobdds), and me.

Sorry about the on-line reservation problem. For now we’ll have to call in until they release the rooms to us on-line. At least we know our rooms are blocked

Yes Marty, we know you’re busy, so we try to give as much notice as possible so you can squeeze a couple of days into your schedule 😏
