2017 Rogers Ride In

OK!

We have reached an agreement!
Finally!

After many emails and phone calls back and forth, I was finally able to get them to match last years rate, except for Wednesday. I beat them up pretty hard! They did want to charge $99 a night and I just kept on them , so y'all better not let me down and get your behinds to Arkansas for some great spring riding!

The 2017 Rogers Arkansas ride in will be on April 19th(Wednesday) through April 23rd (Sunday) This includes rate reductions for early arrivals on Wednesday and late departures on Monday. Wednesdays rate will not be as big a discount as they have a lot of corporate clientele on Wednesdays. The regular rate for the hotel is $159.00 plus tax.

The rates will be;
Wednesday April 19 - $129
Thursday April 20 – Sun April 23 - $89
All rates are plus tax.

I won't be signing the booking agreement until tomorrow, so the group rate is not set up to call and make reservations yet.
After I sign and return the agreement then reservations can be made. I will post again once that is done to let y'all know.

Hotel information;
Tell them you want to book a room for the Goldwing Riders.

Homewood suites
4302 W Walnut St, Rogers, AR 72756

Excellent, I'm attending this prestigious event. I'll wait for a prompt to call and make my reservations. Thanks for all of the hard work and tough price negotiations on behalf of us retired folks. I appreciate your efforts, your first cheeseburger, large fry, and rootbeer is on me......

Y'all are welcome! I had to keep at them. We lost a few people last year after they remodeled and raised the rate to $89. After.much arguing with them about the group rate, I finally just told them if they couldn't match last years rate, then there would not be a ride in..

At that point they conceded.

Ray, thanks for setting this up, and for your persistence in negotiating a great rate for us! To anyone who hasn't been, this is a terrific value price for a first-class hotel. It's on my calendar!

The Ozarks are so unique. Its not Mountains in the usual way. I understand them to have been large flat plains that were pushed up to form these elevated mountain ridges. This terrain makes for some great twisties riding, but also some of the best sweepers in this country. I love the sweepers in the Ozarks, it's like major hang time. Looking forward to seeing you all.......

Ya know, I've really worked hard to try to make this happen this year,but at every turn trying to set this up there has been one hurdle after another.

They just sent me a contact to sign to set this up. There are several stipulations in it that I don't like and I don't agree to. The first is, if there is a negative variance of %20 in rooms booked, they want to reserve the right to renegotiate room rates. I am lime , wtf? So if 6 people cancel or 20 rooms is all that gets booked , then you want us to pay more money?

The other thing is, holding me and the entire group of whomever makes a reservation liable for lost revenue if there is excessive noise, damages or personal injury. This means if we make noise in the lobby or parking lot and someone gets upset and leaves the hotel demanding a refund, the group is liable?

Ya , I think not...

I'm not signing this. Sorry folks, this may not happen after all..
