2011 SW-FOG
September 6 September 9, 2011


Best Western Kachina Lodge & Meeting Center
413 Paseo Del Pueblo Norte Taos, New Mexico, 87571
Reservations: 575-758-2275 or 1-800-522-4462
Mention: SW-FOG or Group #1669


Notice:
This year SW-FOG is being held during the week with check-in being Tuesday September 6th and check-out being Friday September 9th. After much consideration, it was decided that holding this rally during the week will allow more riders to attend. Holding on a weekend causes peoples schedule to run into two different weeks, which can cause conflicts with vacation planning for those members that require work related scheduling. The whole point of posting this information so early is to allow everyone wanting to attend the ability to make arrangements, fulfill job requirements, save money, etc. etc.

Requests for the ride being held again in Taos (Toas) were over whelming. The Kachina Lodge was very hospitable to us last year, the weather was perfect and the riding unsurpassed. Colorado was considered, but memories of the family of Pinheads attending the 2009 SW-FOG in Page, AZ where they had to ride through snow to get to Page. The weather along the Western Slope is unpredictable in September.

Details:
Room Rates: $79.99 per day
There are currently 20 Single King and 20 Queen/ Queen Rooms reserved and you can request a smoking room if you so desire. Rates are good three days prior and three days after for those of you that want to arrive early or stay late. Mention SW-FOG when making reservation
Breakfast: Free full Breakfast each and every day
Dinner: $18.83 inc. tax & tip (same as last year). Dinner will be served Wednesday evening. Payment for the meal will be paid upon check-in. I went ahead and picked the BBQ Chicken & Ribs w/trimmings since it was very good last year.
Bike Wash: Washing area will be setup with towels for drying upon our arrival starting Tuesday morning and will be available through Thursday.
Drinks: Last year we received off our first drink in the hotel bar. I am working on this again this year, but it is not yet etched in stone. I will advise at a later date.

It would be appreciated if each attending rider would drop Big-D a PM letting me know you are attending and whether you will be bringing someone [i.e. Pillion, Sheep, Goat, Armadillo (real or otherwise)]. This enables us to keep track of total attendees

Really hope you can make SW-FOG 2011 twistedcricket, this is always a really fun FJR Forum event; SkooterG, HotRodZilla, Patch308 and GalaxyBlue have promised to keep their pants on this year, but they always are promising that!

I wouldn't use that as a persuasive argument in favor of attending.

I would have the time off but not the funds. I probably can't make SFO or CFO this year either. I only made it to one rally last year and with the funds running low already this year, I might have to just enjoy the pictures from this event, again.

Well, those pictures almost scared me off, but the pretty girls and good food convinced me that it will be OK. So, I'm in. :yahoo:

I hope the snow holds off in the Rockies because I'm planning to take a little side trip and hit the Million Dollar Highway on the way there, even if it means riding across Kansas. :o

Brother Greg, one of the best parts of the SW-FOG experience is that you get to ride the surrounding roads with a highly qualified New Mexican Ride Leader, such as this Local here:

I hear you loud and clear Compadre zzzzip, both Patch308 and HotRodZilla have stayed at mi Chandler Casa before; I slept with three pairs of Levi's on and with my bedroom door bolted shut, and I told my Labrador Retriever Bear to bite them both in the nuts if they came down the back hallway!!!
