I'll keep an eye on this thread for updates.
I'm currently looking at either the weekend before or the weekend after Memorial Day. If we can get in the weekend before (Vermont Parks has been known to open for groups if they think it is worth their while) we'll have the place to ourselves. I think we'd need to have about 30 riders to make it worth while.

I need to fix the date pretty soon. Our stalwart Ms. Barb needs plenty of time to assure that she has the weekend free. Hungry bellies want her there!

Expect some of this:



Some of that:



And a large portion of this:



Thanks again for the excellent pics, Steve!

The Fall Rendezvous probably won't be until October.

It's all good but I think the Twinkies will be scarce now that Hostess has gone tango uniform. Maybe some Little Debbie knock offs?

We can smuggle some across the border!

Back at you, Rich! I hope you're enjoying your off season!

The state park venue for this rendezvous is close enough to my house so I can bring the hot dog cart and plan ahead to provide meals. We cobbed it together last time and everyone was gracious, but a little planning can make it better for everyone. I'm happy to cook and I'm open to menu suggestions minus Twinkies

Looking forward to spring and riding with everyone again!

Lemme see, I'm 48 and about mid-pack for this group age-wise. Yeah, you may fit in. Your dog will need a leash and proof of rabies vaccination at the park. Plenty of good road riding around if your hack and pooch aren't up for off road. The Rendezvous is about having a fun time, not hucking air off huge jumps.

What kind of beer?

Thanks. Gravel roads are fine but anything rough and the dog gets shaken up like a ball in a paint can. Barley has 24k sidecar miles under his collar. We're old pros at meeting the regs and cleaning up after ourselves.

Heady Topper and Switchback good enough?

We can do that for you. Plenty of nice, smooth gravel around.
