Hey Mike,

Of course, I'm in. I never miss a SFO. Put me down for 1 person, 1 room, kingsize bed. Three nights.

Hey Mike. Put me down for one room and two beds. If you need any help, I'll be glad to pitch in. Just let me know. Don't know how much you plan on doing for the after ride festivities, but I can help some with that too.

I'm most likely in, single rider, two queen bed room, three nights.
Is it on the table? If not, lay it out there.

Sooze and I stayed at The Hub for a few nights last May when we were in the area on the Harley. I was thinking that it would be a great place for SFO! The owner, Randal, was very interested when I told him about the FJR.

A couple of quick thoughts:
* The Hub is damn near in the middle of nowhere on top of a big hill. It's a former ski resort, IIRC. The nearest gas station is a ways north on Route 7. Just so ya know...
* If you want beer or other libations, you have to go north into Harrison. The WallyWorld in Harrison sells beer (but it's not cold) or there are a couple of party / beer / liquor stores on Route 62 a ways outside of Harrison as you're heading towards Eureka Springs.

And this is Happy. She's one sweetheart of a dog.

Sounds like an interesting place to stay. Don't like the non convenience of gas stations or even buying beer, but I'm still in. It's a new adventure I'm ready to try. ;)

FYI...There is a convenience store, with gas, just a couple of miles north of the Hub on 7. Also, Boone county is now wet so you can buy beer at that same convenience store. For hard liquor you would need to ride north on 7 into Harrison(about 8 miles). There is also a decent Yamaha dealership in Harrison.

I wanna ride fast!

Maybe everyone knows this maybe not......You have to make your own reservations at the HUB. If you want a room call Debbie at 800-597-9963 and she will fix you up. The only reason I post this is because we have more riders committed to coming to the SFO than are registered at the HUB!

TRUST ME, GANG...I've GOT THIS...

Give me to Feb 1st when I, as promised, will call Debbie with numbers...

(it's a step by step process and will go smoothly; we're still on step 1)

She already has us down for our rally dates, so we are covered there

She will block rooms for the rally based on that Feb 1st conversation

No reservations need to be made at this time

I will also discuss our intentions more in detail and ask about reservations policy and timing (yes, you make your own reservation mentioning the "FJR Rally"

will post up in this thread: stay tuned
probably will update the first post and also post inside the thread that there is an update..<yikes, say that again fast!>

the numbers are:

currently...fjrForum 9 two beds, 10 one bed, 1 three beds
fjriders 5 two beds, 2 one bed

27 rooms

will ask to block, say, 40 rooms...they have a total of 53 one & two bed rooms on the property

I'm getting excited and continue to do my "no rain" dancing

anyone who wishes can email me and have a conversation: mholiver at patriotguard dot org
