    kjo1, dogs are a welcomed part of USCA rallies. There is usually a pet parade on Saturday, so bring your best friend. There will be many others there for him/her to meet.

    I would not have a sidecar if not for the dogs. My rigs seldom leave the garage without them and only been to one rally that they did not go with me. They're the best ice breakers you'll ever have and I've never found them to be a problem at the rallies.

    Depends on the timing, but Tulliver and I might make it on our way back to Vermont from the BMW rallies in Salt Lake City and Paonia

    Anyone find a motel near the site for a reasonable price? Wife has been looking and seems like the best price is over $175.00 per night!:nah

    We are seriously thinking of making it only a day trip for Saturday, 75 miles one way. Just can't see paying close to $600.00 for a motel for three nights. You can get a 3 day cruise on a cruise ship in the Bahamas for that price!

    Check with the America's Best Value Inn in Painted Post, they were offering a special rate for the rally attendees.

    I was planning to go but SWMBO is giving me the stink eye for planning a third trip back east since February. She wants to go west, Montana, Wyoming, Colorado. Haven't given up yet....

    You could always say you read the street signs wrong or blame it on a defective GPS!

    Hey everyone,

    we are having a fantastic turn out for the upcoming Rally In The Valley in Corning. We need volunteers to help. If you are signed up for the Rally, could you please volunteer to help, if only for a couple of hours?

    We need assistance in various areas including:

    Pet Parade

    Hospitality-Refreshment Bar

    Games

    50/50 raffle

    If you are able to help out at all, please send me a PM with your name and a contact mobile number to reach you during the rally.

    Thank you for helping to make Corning a memorable rally for all.
