Ryan, you could ask to have this moved to the annual rally forum. Might pull more out of region folks.
It meets the criteria, Adv and multi years running.

Thanks Reddog*, I was gonna look into that, but hadn't read the "guidelines" for that. Im trying to have the attendance around 100 people this year to justify the time, planning, and expense.
Hoping to do alot in the ways of promotion and awareness of the event. This really is a spectacular place to ride out of

Oh yeah! Beware there are two Betsie River Canoe/Campgrounds in Northern Michigan. Don't accidentally go to the one in Frankfort, Mi. Although it isn't that far away from the one in Thompsonville. I know this from experience.

I would love to see this Rally moved to the U.P. sometime.

Maybe Gwinn next year?

I have plenty of dual sport routes laid out in that area that are available for download. There are also two single track motorcycle trails nearby.

Here are a few of them.

Newberry is a good option as well. Lots of DS tracks over that way plus some single track trails.

To me then it is encroaching on Central ADVrider Rally turf.
No need to do that.
Plus the Lake shore makes for some fun road trips.

We’ve said it before, but it bears repeating; the GS handles in ways a two-story building was never meant to.

Taking collections for Faye Butler Training please spare some change.

Remember red and yellow make orange.so to think orange is better means you have to use two steps to get there.

yep, I'm IN

If invited I will be there camping under the Joshua tree.
I may make Camp Slapaho my summer home.
Thanks Ryan for organizing event again.
Really excellent place, great campground right on trail system, owners are MC friendly, clean bathrooms with hot water/shower, Mobil station across the street with a pizza restaurant, local diners closeby for breakfast.
Great base for dirt or street rides.
This is a great spot/great event...Ryan is a great host.
Everyone needs to follow this thread and mark calendar.
I will be there with lots of bikes.

Not gonna be in Gwinn, although thats nice ride area.
This place is right next to Crystal Mountain Ski Resort , Thompsonville, Michigan so you F.I.B.s, cheeseheads, and yoopers need to find a way around the small pond called Lake Michigan, theres a bridge, a freeway, a couple of ferry's.
Its well worth the trip, Ryan throws a nice party/event.

I like that area, too. Logistically harder for me, though. I'm keeping an eye on this.
