    Oh, and....Guinness and Lagunitas IPA back ON TAP!

    Update 9/22:

    One week to go, ya'll!
    Feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns.

    Update 9/11:

    OK friends, we're getting down to the nitty gritty. The T-shirt order has to be in a bit earlier this year, the 17th, so if you're planning on joining us, please register via PayPal or over the phone as soon as you can.

    Redwood Rendezvous VI​

    September 28-30, 2012​

    :happay It's our 10th event! :happay

    Tell a friend! :freaky

    The Rendezvous will be heading-out Saturday for an afternoon of FLAT TRACK RACING!
    Join us for a great day of racing at the Sonoma County Fairgrounds in Santa Rosa as we take in the final round of the District 36 Dirt Track Black Plate Championship Series. Part of the Santa Rosa Mile Grand Nat'l Championship weekend.

    [​IMG]

    In addition to the great meals and regular goodies, your admission to the Rally will include a ticket to the race! A $30 value.
    Gates open Saturday at noon, practice at 3 and racing starts at 4. We can make the +/- 40 minute ride to the fairgrounds together or everyone can head over at their leisure.
    C'mon, does that not sound like a hoot!?!

    What:
    If you need an excuse to strap a tent and chair your bike and spend some time with friends, this is it! :clap
    Camping in the redwoods. Great food. Great drinks. Phenomenal bunch of folks. Back away from the interwebs, turn off your phone and spend the weekend catching up with old friends or making new ones. Relax in your favorite camping chair with a beer in your hand and grass between your toes.
    The next Rio Nido Roadhouse event is right around the corner!

    -Camping Friday night is free of charge, however no meals will be provided that night. The Roadhouse bar and restaurant will be open for business late to handle your needs.
    -Light breakfast Saturday morning.
    -Saturday afternoon: Nevermind that stuff about "on your own for lunch". Looks like the racing will start late enough to give everyone a chance to grab lunch at the Roadhouse. We'll set up a DIY BBQ in the Back 40.
    -Dinner Saturday nite. Spaghetti, "Baby's Head" meatballs with the Roho's famous sauce, Cesar salad and ghaalic bread.
    -Breakfast Sunday morning.
    -You'll get an awesome T-shirt.

    Where:
    Rio Nido Roadhouse. Full bar with a great beer selection, large lawn for tents, pool (weather permitting), rockin' juke box, horseshoe pit and some of the best roads in Northern California. Located on Canyon Two Rd. Rio Nido, CA. +/- 20 miles northwest of Santa Rosa just off River Road (near Guerneville).
    N38 31.189 W122 58.693
    Still not sure? Right here.

    When:
    September 28-30. Arrive anytime. It's casual...you know the drill. But try to get there early. Camping the night of Friday the 28th (super-secret party night) will be free of charge. However, Rallye Services will provide no meals that night. The Roadhouse bar and restaurant will be open for 'business as usual' late that evening to take care of you.

    The last one was REALLY fun,laid back,not a huge crowd. Tiny and Whammo spoiled us to the point of just being flat amazing on the food end of things,Prime Rib,homemade toasty biscuits and gravy,etc,etc. It was a perfect weekend to be out on my 1200 Triumph running coastal backroads to boot.

    If Im not out thrashing dualsport bikes in the desert I WILL be there.

    hell in a hand basket unless you've got other suggestions.
    it's a great road, great views, nice smooth surface covered with good intentions.
