I will be there.

Booked a room at the Ramada for Friday and Saturday nights. This is my first one and I can't wait to meet all of the regulars plus those Facebook John Dee people I've befriended over the last year.

Who else is planning on going and/or made reservations already?

Also,
John, When will the Official registration begin?

I am really looking forward to this!

Give it a try Dave.

We did put a new form up to register with and are hoping it works, although there has been once case of it not working, so I am trying to figure out if that case is isolated or widespread.

Is anyone else staying at the Ramada Friday? I'm going to ride up Friday at some point but not in time to make it for the back country stuff. Are there any events/rides planned for Friday afternoon?

I will be there and will be signing up soon. I think I might only make it for one day of riding and the dinner but it will be a good time once again. Good cause and good people.

Cuzz, you getting us a seat up front again? That was a ton of fun! Hope they do the silent auction again. Wintertime, you ready to truck us around your back yard?

I didn't get the seat... everyone else was there first because we couldn't find the place LOL. I'm sure they'll have a silent auction again and do some raffles. I got a nice sweat shirt and video out of the deal.

Hopefully we can get the same group together this year. I still want to make it into that area I know that was just over the hill (through the trees) LOL. Lots of good riding back there.

Sorry Einne.

That was a link left over from last year's event. I have removed the link.

Hopefully it did not cause too much of a problem when you called!

It was! You guys had the RX-1s and gave em' all they had - definitely impressed us. I know for sure I wouldn't have taken them some of the places we went. Looking forward to this year's Ride In for sure. I spoke with Wintertime once this summer/fall but haven't since.

Merry Christmas to you and yours as well.

The two hotels are now offering rooms for $60 a nite. The copper crown best western in hancock, mi and the super 8 in houghton mi.

Tell them you are staying to the "make a wish foundation".

I hope this helps.
