You's guys are funny. Entertainment huh? Maybe I should look into having naked women serving drinks while we kick tires & bench race (aka bullshittin' & lying) in the parking lot?
Or maybe hire some semi-naked dancers to pose in the group FJR photo? For sure, that'd be a first at any of the meets.
As far as entertainment, when I finish talks w/ the target hotel I'll be sure to post up a link to the Lewisburg, WV Chamber Of Commerce & whoever is interested in finding alternate forms of entertainment or lodging can do so. I have been busy with personal family health issues & haven't finished the hotel part so please give me a break where time is concerned. After all, it's not even Christmas yet.
I realize there are people that need to make vacation plans in advance. I think that it's safe to use the third weekend in September 2007 for planning purposes starting on that Friday. So meet time is Friday, Saturday, Sunday go home on Monday the 3rd weekend of September. If people want to arrive Thursday night & ride all day Friday there will be enough planned routes to go around unless you want to wing it... & believe me, there are plenty of good roads around to wing a day ride. I'll probably get there on Thursday, myself. I don't have a calendar in front of me to quote the actual day #'s but that is the weekend I'll be shooting for.
For those interested in alternate entertainment, they will be responsible for finding their own amusements. That is unless there is an attendee who'd like to be the whipping person for formal entertainment plans. I do believe the area supports some different types of stuff to do. I wouldn't count so much on seeing an off-broadway show or anything like that, though.
Jim & I plan to find a decent hotel w/ reasonable rates, make ride plans/routes, get a gathering spot for our giveaways & plan a FJR family dinner. There will probably be some other things mixed in there... like t-shirts, door prizes & such... But basically that is what we plan on doing. There is no chores added or subtracted from previous year's planning... BUT as time grows closer who knows what might pop up. Maybe a good spot for having lunch, etc.
Anyway, I think that it's safe to say that the 3rd weekend in September... Friday, Saturday & Sunday & go home on Monday are good for planning. I'll insert dates in here when I've got some.
