  1. Not sure Bill but I will be finding out. :y: We can't all lead that papmered life of eating seafood everyday and getting a massage every night Brian. ;) Doesn't matter where you stay as long as you plan on coming.
  2. I know some of you who will be attending the Meet will be staying at hotels other than the BHCC due to family or work associated discounts. If so would you please PM or e-mail me what hotel you will be staying at and for how many nights. Once we reach 150 room nights, our event will be recognized as a City Event by the Chamber of Commerce which has some benefits locally. We are getting close to that number but the sooner we can confirm we have reached that number, the better. Thanks for your help. :y:
  3. Dinner on Satuday will be $16 or there are several restuarants within 2 miles of the hotel.
  4. To each his own just don't tell me about it cuz I can't stand that crap. :?
  5. Wives (or husbands) of members are going to be considered as good as a member here.
  6. Bump for informational purposes only.
  7. Did you even need to ask Mick? :beer
  8. With the present economy, I thought it might be a good idea to let everyone know what costs can be expected if you are planning or even thinking of coming to Billings for the National Meet. Depending on where you are coming from and how long you plan on being on the road getting here and heading home, you'll have to make your own estimate of traveling costs. Thursday evening Early Bird B_B_Q - Free to members, non-members $5 Non-alcoholic beverages will be provided and the hotel will have a bar set up in the courtyard for you to purchase beer, etc. (There will be a ride around town after dinner so be smart here) Friday - Breakfast at local restaurants should run you less than $10 each Lunch in Red Lodge should be between $10 and $15 per person depending on what you want to eat Catered dinner at the BHCC includes your Meet t-shirt - $15 for members, non-members will have to pay for their shirt $10 Non-alcoholic beverages will be provided There will be live music and alcoholic beverages will be available for purchase (Bike Rodeo after dinner so if you plan on entering....you get the picture) If you are interested in any of the charity auction items listed in that thread, you'll need to consider that expense - http://forums.thevmc.com/bb/forums/thread-view.asp?tid=63520&posts=2&start=1 Saturday - Breakfast at local restaurants should run you less than $10 each Montana Hope charity ride donation of $10 per person - this can be pre-paid if you'd like - see the Pre-registration thread http://forums.thevmc.com/bb/forums/thread-view.asp?tid=63135&posts=23&start=1 Lunch in Cooke City should be between $10 and $15 per person depending on what you want to eat Dinner will be catered at the BHCC and should run approx $15 per plate. Sunday - Breakfast at local restaurants should run you less than $10 each Additional costs - Hotel - depending on where you stay it will vary some - BHCC rate is $95 plus tax so for all three nights approx $300 Gas - you do the math here depending on your bike's mpg Thursday's ride will be approx 15 to 20 miles Friday's ride is approx 155 miles Saturday's ride is approx 275 miles BHCC to the Metra Park is approx 7 miles Hotels to Yellowstone Polaris varies but the Wingate is approx 2 miles and the BHCC is approx 3 blocks (just so you know) Souvenirs - You're on you own there Extra Meet t-shirts - should run approx $10 each Hope this helps some. You can add or subtract depending on when you plan on arriving and what you plan on doing. Looking forward to seeing a lot of old faces and meeting even more new faces. 8)
  9. Over half the states in this fine country will be represented at the Meet as well as half the provinces of our Canadian brothers north of the border. Whoo hoo!!
  10. Today is the MEET ! ! Come on if you plan on coming let me know what your home town is. We have riders from 26 states coming. PM me or e-mail me where you are coming from.. Finally got a pin in North Dakota!!!! Saw someone from South Dakots say they were coming too but don't know where from yet....hint, hint!! How come your state isn't on there?
  11. I started wondering where everyone coming to the meet will be starting from so I made this map. No the marker probably isn't exactly on your house but it is in the cities I could find on your information pages. I know there are many more who are planning on coming but I don't have your location to put on the map. If you are coming to the National Meet please send me your home town location at 2009Meet@thevmc.com and I will add it to the map. Thanks and hopefully every state will have at least one marker. 8) http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?ie=UTF8&hl=en&msa=0&msid=111472117489103534454.0004622b56c47bd2ccc43&ll=47.872144,-107.578125&spn=77.629468,168.925781&z=3 27 States 5 Canadian Provinces 0 days and counting!
  12. Glad to hear you are coming Matt. If you're goofy looking I hate to hear what everybody says about me. You look pretty normal to me other than going to the Code Blue school of how to wear boots with shorts!! ;)
  13. Whew, I thought it is a little early to be packing to come over here already! ;) I thought I was loaded going to Mt Vernon last year but you got me beat. Hmmm, I just realized I don't have to pack this year....COOL!!8)
  14. I will send them out when I get back to work on Wednesday. Youngest turns 14 tomorrow and I try not to work on the boys' birthdays. 8)
  15. Thanks for your help Gene. Anyone else need a flyer? I can e-mail it or send an 11x17 hard copy. Let me know.
  16. Excellent Zane. Thanks for your help. Still have some left if anyone else is interested.
  17. I will send them to you on Tuesday. I have a four day weekend this week. :y:
  18. No problem Zane. PM me your address and I'll get them out to you. After a near snaffu Tom was able to get the printers taken care of and I will be picking the flyers up tomorrow. Shortly after that, they will be in Uncle Sam's hands on their way to those of you that asked for them. Thanks for everyone's help. :y:
  19. The flyer is at the printers and if all goes smoothly, I will be mailing them tomorrow. I have extras so if you need one, let me know. Thanks.
