Talked to Gregg tonight
I guess we will run lead on this for now. Think of it as a benevolent dictatorship. We welcome your opinion, but Gregg and I hold veto power on everything, life is so much simpler that way (we'll probably check with Driffy a lot for advice, but don't tell him).
The committee met, a quorum was present a vote taken and these are the results.
BYOB 2010 is being held in Galeton unless we get hell and high water
We will work with the Oxyoke to confirm dates and post info
The next BYOB will be more like the first in spirit and execution
BYOB 2010 will be run under Farm Rules.
no fucking bands, no fucking porta potties, no scheduled rides, no maps handed out, and if you want it there, you better bring it there.
This is about hanging with your moto buddies and riding motorcycles then telling lies back in camp at days end. If that ain't enough stay home, because you won't have any fun. This is a meeting of self reliant ADV types, no matter what they ride in on.
Oxyoke has plenty of rooms and camping. Call them directly and make your own arrangements when dates are identified.
You are responsible for your own good time and safety.
This is a low to no services rally. You are getting is notice on where about 75 to 100 of your buddies might meet up and when. No one assumes responsibility for anyone else.
Don't have your own bike insurance, stay the fuck home.
Like everything else if you didn't bring it then it won't be there. That includes food, tools, first aid and insurance. There is always plenty of helping hands around, but be ready to handle your own business. This is not a sanctioned event of any kind, it is an informal gathering of friends.
If you guys want a group meal, then someone else needs to volunteer to set it up. Greg already pulled duty on that once before and he paid his dues. Me, well, I just ain't gonna do it. Anyone wants to step up and set up the meal say so here in the thread.
If someone does set up the meal then people who eat prepay the man, and there are NO REFUNDS for any reason whatsoever. If you paid for a meal and can't make the rally tough shit.
If anyone wants to step and handle Tshirts let me know, because I am not doing that either. Tshirts will also be prepaid with no refunds and no one is mailing you your shirt. You want it then show up at BYOB.
I will deal with the stickers if someone will do the design stuff. If someone else does not do the design stuff, there will be no stickers.
The cost to attend BYOB is the same as it ever was, show the hell up and have some fun.

In a couple of weeks I will close the poll and post the dates. Majority does not necessarily win.
After that I'll change the poll to an In/Out poll on who is going. I'll make it public so we can cut and paste the names into the thread later.
gratuities to your organizers can be paid in full barrels of 25 year old whiskey and dancing girls of a similar vintage.
