    it's always hard to plan events and not to step on each other toes... so how about a calendar???

    If you want an event added, reply with a title, link, location and date. Discussion about the event should be done in the original/linked thread. Please keep it ADV and touring oriented (i.e. no Cruiser Events, stunt shows etc)

    RETRO EDIT: Great idea, and it sticks as long as it is maintained. When an event is over, the OP should edit or delete his/her post. It is probably a bad idea to post event photos in this thread. Create a new thread in Regionals, Ride Reports, or wherever appropriate. I will check in frequently. If this thread needs my attention just pm me, and I'll do what I can.

    I agree Cuttle. I would toss my hat in the ring to help maintain it as I'm doing a MUCH scaled down version for East TN. I think the most I was ever tracking at once was 10. It's the same general process, just scaled up from what I'm doing. All it really takes is someone comfortable linking and people to help PM announcements so the poor schmuck doesn't feel the need to scan every thread every day looking for obscure events in the region.

    Using the PNW format seems a win.

    **Although not all of these events are dual sport specific they are all motorcycle specific and fun for all types of riders. Please note the world traveler seminars are specific for adventure riders.**

    Would it be useful for folks to see this in a calendar format? I'm happy to create a SE google calendar reflecting what is created here.

    Thanks Cuttle,

    Nice of you to put it all in perspective.

    I am a hot mess when it comes to organization. This helps immensely.

    Sixth Annual Twin Valley RallySeptember 18-20th, 2015
    https://squareup.com/market/twin-valley-rally



    Imagine the perfect motorcycle rally. You put it in an area renowned for amazing roads and sublime scenery. You host it in a clean, intimate campground with proper amenities. You make it small enough to get to know practically everybody there, but large enough to broaden your friendships. You have music, door prizes, and possible test rides of fine new machines, amazing food, vendors and fun events. That’s what Twin Valley Riders, the sport-touring and adventure-riding club of Southwest Virginia has done with the Twin Valley Rally, now in its sixth year.
    Registration for 2015 is Open
    Registration for our 2015 edition is now open. Registration includes two nights campground fee and two fabulous dinners, music, door prizes, and much more. At only $55.00 per person, it represents a true bargain. Register online via Credit/Debit Card.
    We accept only 175 registrations, and the Rally sells out quickly every year (in two weeks last year). So register immediately to reserve your place! Shirts are by pre-order and you can do it all with a single transaction. Your pre-ordered shirts will be at the registration table at check-in.
    You may use your Credit/Debit card to complete the transaction Enter the names of all attendees in the comment field. You will be emailed a confirmation receipt.https://squareup.com/market/twin-valley-rally
