Posted 12 January 2012 - 01:24 PM

I called Debbie, owner of the Hub today - Feb 1st...

I have ya'll's committments via this thread for 27 rooms...15 two queen beds and 12 one king bed - I reserved for myself 1 of the three queen beds for myself

as of today, Debbie has blocked 35 rooms...the "extra" 13 rooms are of whatever #beds needed, as folks

Please call and make your reservation now...that means

1) mentioning the FJR Rally,
2) giving Debbie your full name,
3) city of residence,
4) that you posted on the forum and
5) are one of the block rooms I reserved, and
6) what kind of room(s) you want...
no payment or credit card needed...I'm guarunteeing the rooms

The Hub (Debbie)
Marple Falls, AR
870-743-4062 pls use this local # if you have free long distance...saves them $$$
800-597-9963 toll free


EDITED - corrected TOLL FREE#
thanx "Jim in Phoenix"

this is on the honor system...they will do all they can for us,
I will keep them informed so at the end, we get the best experience possible and everyone gets the accomdations they wish...
but at the same time, we do not cause them to lose business because of no shows or my poor judge of how many rooms to block
that they end up not filling because of us
they have a very liberal blocking/hold policy / committment to us. IMHO, they are taking most of the risk to guarantee our Rally's Success.

so, I will be monitoring this thread closely asking all to keep me informed of any (definite) changes of any kind,
this becomes more & more important as it gets closer to the event date
all who wish to join the group over these coming weeks, pls post up on this thread and call to make your reservations
ther

I will call them with an update periodically to tighten the plans

your committment needs to be in stone by May 1st and but your reservation over the phone should be canceled by 3pm on May 29th (48 hrs ahead of check in)

I don't use PM's feel free to contact me via email mholiver at patriotguard dot org identify yourself including forum handle on the first email
if you'd like to talk or txt, just request my iPhone #

getting more excited and tired from "no rain jazzercise"

Need to ask the wife and do some work on the bike but I'm tentatively in. Do we need to call and make reservations? Those guys usually book up pretty quick...

not at this time...I just need an estimate number of rooms...folks more likely than not...they will block a number of rooms now...each makes their own specific reservations like 4-6 weeks ahead

Ok, I'm confused. Are these the official dates or are we still voting in the other thread? This weekend seems to be running back of the pack in the voting.
2005 FJR1300 (where do I get one of those avatars?)
2000 V-Star 1100 Custom (in a better place)
Another 2005 Faster Blue (F%&*)
Yet another 2005, third time's a charm

At this point, I'll take one of the two 3 queen rooms

It would be a bonus to let me know what kind of room you want...1 bed or 2 beds

Good deal, Mike, thanks. I'm in. Would like to do a room share with someone if possible.

Glory Racing- Would you have any GPS routes to share?

I'll keep you in mind, Fred. I've always enjoyed your company.

I don't know any specifics because of possible locals riding up with me.

I have reserved one of the two 3 bed rooms

Sorry...I have not graduated to the map machine thing so I have no gps routes. I have ridin just about all of the roads in these here parts so I would be glad to share ride info with you when you arrive on an old fashioned map. I am sure someone will have some electronic input and will chime in before the event.
Lets ride some twisties!

I wanna ride fast!

admittedly, I'm the one who confused myself (reaching for my lunch meds now)...

I made so many edits to the initial post, I missed reading the poll

Picking a date: I had a family conflict beginning of May, plus the availability of the place was limited

It's gonna be a blast and everything will fall in place...I'm comfortable my job is gonna be easy
