    Let's do this.

    June 20-22.

    Fire roads, ORV trails, and lots of sand.

    Location - Thompsonville MI - Campsite TBD. Hopefully Wild Bill is open to hosting us. We'll leave this open for now - I'll start making calls.

    Let me know if you're in.

    Beer will be provided by Wolverine Brewing of Ann Arbor.

    I just got the bike out of the basement today and put 90 miles on it. This event was always lots of fun but I have prior engagements on that weekend. If you decided to move it to the weekend before or after I would certainly be in but that weekend is a no go for me.

    Nice - riding season I'd finally here. I don't expect this event to be the badass party that Ryan puts on. Just riding and having good times in the evenings.

    In terms of a date, I just chose a weekend that works for a group of friends.

    I'd propose that this be a multi-weekend event where people show up when it's convenient for them.

    A good standby is Wild Bill's since it is definitely connected to the trail system.

    Looks good. I'm in Hawaii now, so I'll call them next week when I'm back to find out if they are connected to the trail system.

    Thanks - acs

    Cycle-moore will not allow trucks and trailers in the campground. Basically a 'ride in only' type of place. Also, not connected to any trails.

    Update 6-12-14...this is not true. I called and they said c'mon up. all vehicles are allowed in the campground.
