  1. Thank you for such an informative and forthcoming report Craig! It certainly is helpful to know "from the source" what the planning and precautions that are being taken . I feel very badly for all the hard work you all have done that probably will be somewhat negatively affected by this damn virus. As of now, we are in a hold pattern and will wait until the deadline of August 5 to make our final decision as probably are some others who were looking forward to this meet. Whatever we decide personally I certainly wish you all the best with safety and good health for all.
  2. My understanding is that the organizers of this rally have opted to move forward. I do hope and pray that those who attend are kept and remain safe and healthy and I wish for the organizers a successful rally.
  3. Hi there! Well - hubby and I signed on early for this one and the plan was to ride the BRP along with in and around Maggie Valley before heading over to Johnson City. Up to now, it appears that the organizers are full steam ahead with planning and preparation for our 2020 National Rally. However - this morning I hear that the Covid cases in Tennessee are rising dramatically and that the Governor has extended a State of Emergency Order through to August 29, part of which discourages gatherings of more than 50 people. I know that you folks have put in a lot of hard work and time in this event, and if I were in your shoes I certainly would not want to postpone or cancel. But safety should be paramount don't you think? What are the thoughts/leanings on this?
  4. Please make sure you let Amanda MacInnis know next year's plans so she can add the ride to our calendar!
  5. My understanding from the BoD discussions is that a question will be put out to the members advising that the Board is considering making a change to the "charity of choice" and asking for suggestions. My thoughts are to leave that out there for two weeks, then take the top 3 suggestions and put them to a membership vote. The winner of the vote would become the charity noted in the bylaws.
  6. A decision was made regarding the V2V on Wednesday May 13. Stay tuned for an announcement from Vivian Hardin, Chairperson.
  7. YES Jim! that is an excellent idea! With apologies to Viv as I have done a bit of editing to her original email, here is the text I think should go out to the membership asap. VMC Nation, It is way past due to start serious conversation about V2V 2020. With Gene retiring from the position of V2V chair, the time for leisurely planning for this event has escaped. The BoD has discussed cancelling this year's event, but I would like to see if we can pull it together - it IS a landmark event for the VMC! I have listed the Legs for this year's rally in the hope that someone among our membership is willing to step up as Leg Captain for one or more legs. Due to our late start, we need to tie this down asap. I have hopes that we will be able to do this, keeping in mind that Covid 19 may impact our plans. I would like to start the planning with securing Leg Captains for all 13 legs. Of course, the start and end destinations of each leg would be up to the Leg Captains. The suggestions below are major cities close to the original Route 40. Also, more recognizable to folks not familiar to the specific area. If the destination is Castle Rock or Fort Morgan instead of Denver, again, up to the Leg Captain. I realize there is so much more planning to be done to pull off this magnificent event. If we can start with securing Leg Captains, the rest of the planning can be completed as time permits. Anxious to hear thoughts and responses.

  8. GREETINGS ALL! AT THE BOARD MEETING ON WEDNESDAY THE V2V WAS DISCUSSED AT GREAT LENGTH. SINCE WE HAVE NO OFFICIAL CHAIR FOR THIS YEAR'S EVENT, VIVIAN HARDIN OFFERED TO TRY TO COORDINATE THE LEGS - AND SHE CAN WORK ON THE START (WEST COAST) THROUGH TO THE MID-WEST. SHE NEEDS HELP! IN PARTICULAR FROM THE MID-WEST TO THE NORTHEAST! IF YOU ARE WILLING TO TAKE ON SOME OF THAT WORK AND CAN EITHER LEAD A LEG OR TWO, OR KNOW SOMEONE WHO WILL, PLEASE REACH OUT TO VIVIAN AND LET HER KNOW! THIS EVENT NEEDS TO BE BROUGHT TOGETHER AND AT LEAST PARTIALLY READY TO GO BY APRIL 30 SO DON'T DELAY! KEEP THE V2V MOVING IN 2020!
  9. Bringing a small "crew" from the Northeast! Hubby, son, and good friend so far!
  10. From the fact that it looks like this was taken at a raceway of some kind, perhaps either at Daytona or perhaps the Indy 500 track?
  11. Just finished registering and reserving for the event! Gotta say I'm very impressed with the information asked for and given on the event registration page.
  12. I certainly agree with this Gene. As well, I would like to know exactly who is on the Events Committee. I have tried for two years now to get that information and have not been given it.
  13. PLEASE don't pollute the planning for this historic event with the politics that are taking place! I am sure that things will get straightened out. Keep in mind - the VMC has weathered many "things" in twenty years - this is just a bump in the road - surviving for 20 years is worthy of straight-forward and eager anticipation, no politics involved.
  14. This looks like a terrific rally! Thank you for posting the pics!
