    Boyz 'n' girlz ...
    We're trying to get things narrowed down now.
    So I'll offer some choices here (I'm sure I'll miss some) and we'll see how this works out.
    Killen has a friend who's offered his farm in Minnesota, for instance. (Woodstock IV? :huh)
    If you've already replied to the original Midwest Meeting thread, please enter your choice here.
    If you didn't respond on the original thread but are thinking it might be fun to join us, also enter your choice here.
    This ain't a total democracy 'cuz eventually somebody's gonna have to make a final choice, but I do want to get as much feedback as possible.

    Ark/Mo., no problem. Good enough riding from here to there to keep me happy. If'n its waaaaay up yonder, It'll have to be able to tie in with some races up that way for me to deal with that chicago mess to get to it.
    Also, still looking for mid-week dates, or weekend????

    Yeah, that was my vote. I can't get much time off, so I'd hate to have to race north on the slab and use up to three days just motoring up and back.

    So are we going to have a tie breaker or what? I'm in for MO or AR but MN is a little too far for me.

    No hanging chads or Supreme Court decisions here.

    Of course we'll be heading North from Texas... Talk about frickin' cold we're looking at high's of only in the 50's this week. Thank God it's 74 right now!!! :rofl

    Yeah, the first or second weekend in June is what I'm aiming for.
    Now ... would you all rather meet on a weekend or during mid-week? Which one would make the most of you happy? My primary goal here is to have a low-key gather of Adventure Riders for a couple days/couple nights, do some riding, drink some beer along with some good eats, swap stories, and have a good time. Nothin' fancy. This ain't Americade or Bike Week. It'll just be a few of us kickin' tires, shootin' the breeze and ridin'.
    But I really do hope to get as many people as possible, meaning it's gotta work for most of you ...

    I'm open for time. Week or Weekend.

    I'll take vacation around it for travel either way. Hell I've got 5 weeks to use :evil

    I would say it also depends on where we try for. Some areas are better during the week, some it does not matter.

    A quick question.....is anybody planning on going to the Blitz to Branson next year? I've never been. I think it's in April. Same neck of the woods it seems. Would people want to combine these events?

    Army,
    April is too cold in these here parts. I'd prefer later in the year, such as the early June date. Hell, you can still have snow around here in April. Don't wanna really ride thru that ...

    We won't be going this year, but you should go.....its always a good time with plenty of friendly people. April is a beautiful time of the year down there, but its a crapshoot weather-wise for anyone coming from the north.

    That's pretty much what I figured weather wise. Just thought I'd throw it out there as an option.

    I might try to do both. From what I've heard the riding through the Ozarks is awesome.

    Its even a pleasant ride from New Braunfels. I took farm roads from Austin to College Station to Marshall to Texarkana, and didn't lose that much time compared to riding on the interstate.
