    Thanks Candi, I am working on this today.  

    Please send PM's, post in this thread and by all means, respond to the emails that will be sent soon.

    Do you want an email to go out to the membership?  If so, just provide the text and I can get it out fairly quickly.

    When making hotel reservations.... do we need to reference anything?  Is there a block of rooms reserved?

    Please follow the directions on the website.  They are pretty specific.  The big part is that you need to make sure that you are speaking with the local hotel and not the national reservation system to get the discounted rate.

    The instructions for the hotel are on Accommodations page of the website.  The link below will take you directly there:

  3. To be honest, for the 2019 National Meet the highest click rate came from the emails.  The click rate was pretty evenly split between the VMC website and Facebook.  The 2019 Meet was posted on the VMC website 7 times.  It was posted on Facebook 24 times in several different groups and pages (total posting was 144 postings).

    I believe it is because the members that participate more in events still come to the site for the information.

    I helped host a National in 2012 in Hot Springs and then in 2018 my LC proposed the National in Branson for 2019. Without beating a dead horse they apparently didn't think we were capable of doing so. The Events committee didn't care for our style and we grew to not care for theirs.  My LC and I include myself are not interested in trying another proposal after the reception it got in 2018. We have one of the only active LC's in the SC region without  our support I don't think there is enough structure to put together a National proposal for the Midwest. 

     

    It had nothing to do with the capability of the group to host the event.  It also did not have anything to do with style.  I have been on the Events Committee for several years at this point.  The information provided in the proposal was incomplete.  Several years of proposals were sent to your group to view so that you should be aware of the information that would be asked.

    We were just asking for additional information.  The replies obviously had an unfortunate attitude.  At that point multiple people on the Events Committee tried to reach out to have a call.  We received no reply except that the group was no longer interested.

    I had an extended conversation with Lowel and Vivian while I was on the V2V.  Unfortunately, there was a lot of miscommunication.

    It is unfortunate that the group would no longer be interested.

    It is also too bad you did not make this years event.  You would have had a great time.  A great group of VMC members attended.  The feedback has been great so far.

    Looks like a great event and good times.

    Did they have a contest who road the farthest? If so, how far and where?

    Anybody know do those attendance figures compare to past national events?

     

    I have the attendance data from 2013 forward.  I will work up a post at some point.

    I will also have this this years get the information together for the contests for posting and posterity.  I don't know off of the top of my head.  I missed the announcement doing other things.  The think farthest away of someone i spoke with was somewhere in Texas.

    Mike,

    Sorry to hear that you won't be able to make it as well as well as why.  Those storms are never good and hard to predict where the storm will hit the hardest.  I hope everything ends OK.

    I have passed the information on to the hosting group.  I know that quite a bit of the money has been spent or ordered already.

  7. Come join others that have already registered. So far people from 18 states in the US and 2 Canadian provinces have signed up from as far away as Florida to the south and Texas from the west. While not everyone that is in the VMC is in a chapter (nor is it required in any way) 22 chapters are represented so far.
    THIS IS THE LAST DAY TO REGISTER to receive early registration discount pricing for the registration for the 2019 VMC National Meet. ONLY A SHORT TIME LEFT!
    One of the great benefits of the VMC are the events that are sponsored regionally and nationally. People always ask what are the benefits of the VMC. For me, it is the amazingly nice people that I have become friends with at every level - locally, regionally, and nationally. The neat thing is they have the same interest as me. They are not just nodding their head like someone that is not interested in Victory Motorcycles.
    The Adirondack Victory Riders have been pre-riding the routes planned by none other than Tony Capt. Cupcake Parente. We've been having a great time planning and riding.
    The Great Escape Lodge is also filling up rooms and coming close to capacity, so we will probably be booking into the overflow hotel soon. If you have not yet done so, I would suggest booking your rooms to make sure you're a part of the party.
    The early registration discount is getting close ending on August 5, 2019.
    Looking forward to seeing you all there. Ride on and ride safe everyone.
    Ride Safe!!
  8. Gene,

    Thank you for organizing this event.  I know that it takes a lot of work to make the event run smoothly.  I had a great time on Legs 2 and 3.  I only wish I had more time available to ride the whole V2V.  It si great to meet other VMC members as well as see 'old' friends.  It always amazes me how nice the VMC members are that come to these events.

    Those of you who are not participating in the event are truly missing out.

  9. For the VMC members that will be attending Americade this coming week, the Adirondack Victory Riders would like to invite you to a ride on Saturday, June 8, 2019.

    The ride will lead by non other than Captain Cupcake. He had planned a great ride starting from Gift World at the intersection of US 9 & RT9N (Exit 21) at 10:00 am with kickstands up at 0:30 am. The ride is 152 with an approximate ride time of 4 1/4 hours with a total time with stops of approximately 6.5 hours.

    Tony is the Ride Committee Chairperson for the Adirondack Victory Riders as well as the NE #1. When Tony plans and leads a ride it is legendarily great. This will be a great ride with some great people.

    We look forward to seeing you on the ride!!

    Well......I was going to ride the whole thing this year but my pal talked Grandpop into going to Gettysburg for the reenactment July 5-7

    Two comments.

    First there only so many hours in a day.  It is amazing how fast kids grow...

    Secondly, you need to update your signage for the posts.  It doesn't show your current position within the VMC.  No going incognito for you:)
