Honestly....I almost decided not to mess with it this year.
Two main reasons. 1 I did this to increase traffic on the Ohio Board. It helped a little, but things have dropped off. 2 I have always had it in Columbus to be closer to the middle of the state. It is about a hundred miles for me to Columbus. This is not a problem to go to a RTE. It is just hard to set it up that far from home.
I have a few thoughts.
Option #1 We could have it in Portsmouth Ohio, with lunch being at the Scioto Ribber.
But!!!! We should eat as soon as they open at 11 AM. Because some Saturdays they fill up in the first 1/2 to 1 hour. Then it could be an hour or more just to get a table for a few people.
Option #2 Let someone else set it up in a more central location.
Option #3 Make a floating RTE to be held by some different each year in their area.
Option #4 Forget about it altogether.
Again I remind everyone.....If it goes, it is set up to get Wingers to come together. If you want to sell something and ship it that is OK. JUST PLEASE DO IT ON A DIFFERENT THREAD. If you want to make sure there is an interest in your item or pre-sell and deliver at the meet....That will be OK. The whole idea is to come and meet everyone.
If it is in this area. If weather permitting, I may be able lead a ride the day after or the day before through the hills in the area. "But I do not ride as fast as I did a few years ago"
Let's hear everyone's thoughts.....Someone may have a great idea.
