I need to ask for time off way in advance with this new job. Can someone post up the date and location, or direct me to correct thread.

Beautiful Bouncing Barb: Actually Sweetie, Mr. Jeff C., aka FJRGuy, formally announced to the assembled Mooks at the Final Banquet at CFR 2011 in Freddy Beach that the Official dates of NAFO / CFR 2012 were going to be June 21 through June 24; a Thursday through Sunday.

Reason for this is that many of the New Brunswick FJR multitude are planning a run up to Alaska right after NAFO / CFR 2012. Don and Seth Stanley, along with Steve and Justin Jorstin, are riding up to Fairbanks together. Since booking passage for ourselves and our bikes six months in advance is necessary on the Alaska Marine Highway, the announcement was made as early as possible.

Is it "THE" big black rooster?

The dates should prove to be perfect for us. janet and I are going to plan a cross country trip next year. We will put NAFO right in the middle of it.

No fancy signature line. Too many meets to try and keep up with the icons.

Don,
We sure hope the rally will not be in Castlegar becaurse they only have 2 accomodations in town, Super 8 and Quality Inn. Not the quality and capacity required for a rally.

Just a couple of comments.... IF one was at the CFR this year I guess one might have heard.
The other is if it is where it is suggested (Castlegar)one should say so, so some of us can start planning. As for the only couple of places in town I have to say.... maybe
You see I have some of my own planning to figure out here. Hence the need to know for the many and not the few.

If there is going to be an extension of the ride into Alaska I will be more than happy to help coordinate the Alaska side of things.

My handle says Ric in Sac but it is really Ric in AK. I tried to change it but apparently committed a forum felony doing so :rolleyes:

Since Cali is broke you must only be getting Google Lite in LaLa Land. A quick search on Google up here in the Great White North came up with 8 locations. Some even have bathrooms so you don't have to share the outhouse with the grizzly bears.

Thank You Ric, The Jorstin Boys and the Stanley Boys will take you up on your kind offer of assistance. I worked and lived in Alaska for five years in the mid eighties, but nothing beats current and local information about riding Alaska.

I will be laying out the route we two Father-Son teams will be taking to Alaska and then onto the ferry dock at Skagway and I will post it up here in January. Any recommendations you give will be heeded and listened to, Many Thanks!

Dear Ed and Jacquie, yamafitter - Bill F. is correct, Castlegar could handle a NAFO / CFR with no problems. In June of 2009 Seth and I passed through Castlegar coming and going to Nakusp, British Columbia for CFR and we certainly saw more than 2 lodgings. Like yamafitter says, I would say there are at least 8 locations.

Hi Tom, I have Jeff C.'s personal e-mail, so I sent the letter below to FJR Guy just a minute ago; I also copied Bill F. - yamafitter and Mary Ellen - MEM with my letter. I know Jeff is very busy, but hopefully he can soon respond to HYCLE's thread here.


http://www.fjrforum....=0

Good Morning Jeff,

There is now a thread under NAFO started by HYCLE: Mike - HYCLE and Tom - Huron52 are looking for Confirmation of Castlegar and dates of June 21-24 for NAFO / CFR 2012. I had related to Mike your announcement of NAFO / CFR 2012 at CFR 2011 Fredericton, New Brunswick Rally. I know you are busy, but it appears that Tom and Mike have to make their plans now due to work and other commitments. So, if you could add your comments to this thread, it would probably make planning easier for those folks.

Once again, it was a pleasure to see and ride with You and Your Lady in the Canadian Maritime Provinces. Thanks again for your hard work on CFR, I love riding up to CFR!

Sincerely yours,


Don Stanley
