I figured it would be nice to have a specific thread for everyone attending the convention this year. I'm hoping this will give everyone a place to discuss meeting times and plan trips in advance to get as many people out there together as possible. I know last year it was hard to coordinate with everyone especially when you only have a handful of cell phone numbers to call. Anyways we are less than a week away, I can't wait. What are you most looking forward to doing while in attendance this year? Feel free to take the conversation in any direction you please.....see you there

Great info from DanQ:

I tether off my phone, and got solid service all week. But otherwise went to the lodge.

Drink menu??? There is drinking at the Convention?

Been a lot going on. Shane and the rest of us have been conversing, and we'll have daily ride info etc up soon.

Main thing to remember is the Phoenix Deck nightly around 7:00 PM (1900 for those of us that can tell time correctly :lol) and the entrance to the Lodge. Rides will be discussed and planned on the Phoenix Deck. There will be a white board/flip chart at the front door to the lodge daily with the upcoming events/rides for the day. But you don't want to watch the white board/flip chart, because some things will start before the resort can get the board out (Eric and I will try to get it updated, but since most decisions will be finalized at the Phoenix Deck, that's where you want to be. Bring a few of your favorite drinks).

Towel service: They don't have a schedule. Each cabin has a good compliment of towels. If you need replacements, please let the front desk know. They will replace on request. DO NOT place the towels on the porch. They don't look for them, and if they fall into the dirt things will get complicated. Just contact the front desk when you need towels replaced.

Vehicle cleaning rags: While not the preferred method, if you need to clean your bike and need rags to do so, please contact the front desk. DO NOT use the towels (no matter how clean you think your bike is). You will be charged for replacement towels. Buy a roll of disposable shop towels, or bring some terry cloth.

Shirts are ordered. Sorry if you missed out. We couldn't buy many extras. We can discuss a second order, but the price could very likely change.

Saturday's events are still being discussed.

We hope to have everything in this thread by the weekend.

Thanks I'm not sure I'm going to make it my riding partner backed out. I dont really like riding that far out alone. I will probably just end up riding through blood mtn a couple times.
