    Come join the BMW Riders of Western Colorado at the Delta County Fairgrounds in downtown Hotchkiss on Color weekend, (the high country fall colors will be at their peak), on the Western Slope of Colorado. Our rally offers a centrally located base camp for exploring the Uncompahgre Plateau, the Grand Mesa, the West Elks, and the San Juans. Our low elevation venue allows for warmer nights in late September, and includes a large meeting hall, restrooms with showers, plenty of grassy camping and the convenience of walking to downtown restaurants, stores and motels. The grass is one of the nicest places you have ever pitched a tent and the manager is very protective. It has a pipe fence around it and no vehicles or pets are allowed inside. There is a grassy area outside the fence where you can camp with your furry buddies. There is no camping on the grass in the park until after 5:00 pm on Thursday September 19. There are a few smaller RV spots with electricity and water, no sewer for $6 per night, first come first serve. There are other parking areas suitable for dry camping with any size rig.

    Motels and B&B's can be found at: Your rally fee of $40 before (Aug 15),$50 at the gate, gets you dinner Friday and Saturday nights, continental breakfast Sunday morning, camping, free coffee and tea, door prizes, and movies both Friday and Saturday nights inside Heritage Hall. Adventure rides, (all abilities), and scenic road rides will be mapped out and waiting for exploration. On Saturday morning, the Hotchkiss Elks are cooking breakfast, please be generous.
