    What: a "loosely organized" dual sport ride that welcomes all comers!
    When: April 26-28 (a week later this year)
    Where: Marble Falls Arkansas based out of Marble Falls Resort and Restaurant (formerly The Hub)
    Entry Fee: None
    Organizer: advmgm (Mike)
    Room Reservations:
    www.marblefallsarkansas.com

    BE SURE TO MENTION THE HILLBILLY DUAL SPORT RIDE WHEN MAKING ROOM OR CAMPING/RV RESERVATIONS

    The old Hub motel will be open starting April 1st for us to use.. Rooms were renovated last year.

    Come ride with us on some of THE BEST dual sport and road riding in the central USA!
    All makes and models are welcome to join in the fun!

    I will have tracks available and I will lead a ride each day.

    For you camping types there will be tent camping at the resort.
    There is also a nice campground about two miles away mentioned in layer posts.

    There will be RV parking at the resort but dry hookups.

    Please post up if you plan to attend so I can get an idea of rooms needed.

    The weather should be great the end of April so see you there!

    Are Randall and Debbie going to run the new place or did they find someone else to re-open?

    Correct. Debbie Nielson owns the property and has for years.

    It was leased to others to run.

    Not sure if Randall will come back to assist. Who knows but never say never :)

    Seriously? Sarcasm dude. I really don't care either way as I probably will continue staying at Shady Oaks Campground. I've hosted about 15 events at the Hub and have stayed numerous nights camping there. I like Randall and Debbie and wish them well but they really need to update pretty much everything there.

    I've moved my main event farther east and it went well. I still host a camping event at Shady Oaks that people liked even more. The Hub is not the only place to stay in AR.

    Have fun at your event.

    What was your event and where did you move it to?

    FYI, Randall and Debbie never owned The Hub.....they only rented the property...

    The Heritage USA people who rented it last year made numerous improvements before they defaulted on the rent and were kicked out last August.

    That's why Debbie Nielson has it back now.
