This is the kick-off of the OFFICIAL 2010 DEALS GAP: R1-Forum.com / R6-Forum.com Convention.

  • Monday June 7, 2010 - Sunday June 13, 2010
This thread will be reserved for info and convention talk. The convention is open to all ALL RIDERS and ALL kinds of motorcycles. Our small convention has grown over the years but we do ask that if you sign up for the convention that you sign up as a member of the R1-forum.com or R6-forum.com!

  • $115 per person (includes dinner each night).
  • $20 for a convention shirt.
Total is $135 per person (make sure to add an extra $5 for paypal fees if you are sending funds from your paypal account). Keep in mind you are welcome to attend without eating nightly meals, this is an accomodation for members.

Paypal Funds shall be sent to DanQ at [email protected]. If you have any questions Dan or myself can answer them anytime. Make sure you include your complete info when signing up (full real names + screen names of people attending and that you clearly identify that the funds are for the convention deals gap trip).

Also note that Fontana Village will include use of the "WORLD FAMOUS" Thursday night party boats with these funds as well. We are privileged to have this opportunity from Fontana so if you are on the fence about contributing for the food please do. Your party boat access is included :)

Place: Deal's Gap Lodging: Fontana Village

Website: www.fontanavillage.com

Link to Convention Transportation Thread. Have space in your vehicle, or looking to split the ride with someone, click here.

LODGING: We do get discount rates, but you MUST tell Fontana Village you are with the Yamaha R1 Forum Group to get the discount rates and so that they put you with us. If there are any problems ask to speak with Debbie or just let me know. Their phone number is 1-800-849-2258. Make your reservations early. IT WILL FILL UP!!! It would really suck to not be able to get a cabin at Fontana:yesnod

Look at their website and inquire with them, by phone, to make your choice. 1-800-849-2258. I would suggest making reservations as early as you can, everywhere fills up that time of year up there.

They have blocked off 22 cabins and 10 lodge rooms for us. So start making reservations as soon as you can. After March 1st, 2010 they will be released to the general public and WILL sell out. SO GET YOUR RESERVATIONS MADE ASAP!!!

For the guys coming up as singles I would suggest getting together with other folks on the Forum and splitting the cost of a small or large cabin. There are gonna be several cabins available.

Fontana also has campsites available if you want to camp. They are approximately a mile down the road.

Everyone is welcome - but please realize that this group is made up with many types of riders of different skill levels and desires. This is not about getting together to race, or to drag other people into riding above their limits! Everyone is expected to ride at their own pace and have a good time!

REMEMBER: Deadline is April 23rd, 2010 for all funds!!!

Alcoholic beverages: BYOB

T-SHIRTS: PRE ORDER ONLY!! The shirt cost of $20 is included in the price above. If you don't want a shirt you aren't required to purchase one.

PHOTOGRAPHY: We will have a professional photographer in attendance.

PRIZES: Of course we will have prizes like each year. These will be given out at the Yamaha dinner on Saturday night. You HAVE to be a member of the R1 Forum or R6 Forum and also on the definates list to be eligible for the Prize drawing.

We have some killer prizes every year so you need to make sure I put you on the definates list if you are coming. No maybes, WE said definates...please remember that.

Everyone can sign up by replying to this thread or sending a PM to myself or DanQ and we will put you on the list.

EMERGENCY CONTACT INFO: Everyone must fill out the sheet upon check-in at the reservation desk of the Fontana Lodge.

Here are some of the events that will be held during the week.

  • 6:30 PM will be dinner on Shuckstack Road.
  • Cross Roads Lunch (usually everyone meets at the CROT for lunches daily)
Wednesday Thursday
  • Night-Party Boat!
Friday Saturday
  • 1 pm Annual Ride to Overlook
  • 6:30 pm is the Big Yamaha Sponsored dinner. The prize giveaway will be during this also. .
Most everything is discussed and planned out in the evenings around dinner and hanging out. If you want to get up a ride or find out where people are going the next day come up to Shuckstack Road and hang out. If you get to Fontana during the day just head to the CROT and you will find someone from the forum.

Please contact myself or DanQ, to be put on the definite list:

You don't have to be on the definites list to be eligible for prizes, but you MUST BE PRESENT! There will be someone taking sign up entries for prizes on site during the dinner Saturday!
