  2. On Friday of the Meet, we will be having a charity auction to benefit the Montana Hope Project (www.montanahope.com).

  3. Bill, Your concerns bothered me so I just spoke to two of our own, Starkey and his wife, who spent the night there just before Thanksgiving. Their response was that it was clean, comfortable, the people were friendly and it was a fine hotel. It's not the newest hotel but then again I didn't think everyone would wwant to have to pay $120+ dollars a night for a room. It is close to the dealership, the highways, fuel, and food. If you are used to staying in the finest of hotels, it may not be the place for you. If you want a clean place to sleep for a reasonable price, I do not believe you will be disappointed. Enough said.
  4. I read all those negative replys too. I also checked several other local hotels that I know are very nice and almost all the reviews for those were bad too. In the past 10 months there has been a complete change of management. The new management fired a good portion of the staff which pissed a lot of them off. I can assure you that no one smokes meth in the halls. They are in the process of putting in all new heating and air conditioning units, new carpet, new paint, new beds, new bathroom fixtures, and counters, etc. Our regional rep stayed there this past weekend and had no issues other than the faucet being backwards (hot/cold). We got to see the rooms. We walked almost the entire hotel and aside from where the smoking rooms were I did not smell smoke. I'm not sure why someone would say unsafe location unless they left their kids unattended and they wandered out to the street or the pond. It's not Trump International but it is not a bad hotel. If you have any other concerns feel free to PM me your phone number and I will give you a call.
  5. Got it and thanks Scott. It wasn't the $10M however so guess I'm going to have to keep my day job. 8)
  6. This is only a pre-registration and pre-payment for the charity ride on Saturday. You can still pay for the ride when you get here Dave. We were just trying to get an idea of how many people are coming. 8)
  7. Just to be clear, the ride over the Beartooth Pass on Saturday is a charity fund raisier ride. We will be asking each rider for a $10 donation to go to the Montana Hope Project. That is what this pre-registration is for. There is no registration fee for the Meet itself. Just one of our ideas to try and get a head count on how many people are coming without starting a poll thread. That probably will be coming later. 8)
  8. Absolutely, my son's girlfriend is from Arkansas so you all can't be too bad! ;) Look forward to meeting you.
  9. Got yours Tim, thanks. I'll keep an eye out for the others.
  10. In an effort to support effective planning for both our members and our outside vendors, we are going to start accepting pre-registration charity ride donations in the amount of $10 per person. This is not an additional fee but rather a prepayment for the charity ride on Saturday. This pre-registration will also give us a head count so that we can effectively plan for ordering shirts, etc and also help our other vendors plan accordingly. You can make your payment by check, money order or though PayPal. Make checks payable to “Yellowstone Valley Victory Riders” and send to the address listed below. For PayPal payments use the Paypal account “ Zappin1@bresnan.net”. Please put your name in the comments area. Thanks for your help and we look forward to seeing you in July. :chpr Jim Kelso 2910 Manhattan Drive Billings, Montana 59102
  11. I am out of town working through Wednesday. I will get a new list from the hotel when I return and let everyone know about the room drawing.
  12. We have bugs, nothing Texas sized and they aren't too bad until the evening. Too hot and dry. If they come out in the day time they just shrivel up and die. Haven't hit the 50 rooms quite yet. I'll let you know.
  13. 46 rooms reserved. Only 4 left before the drawing. If you want in, do it now. Let me know when your reservation is made. If you are number 47 but don't let me know....I think you get the picture.
  14. There are now 40 rooms reserved. 10 more to go until the drawing. If you want in on the chance for a free room for the weekend, you better get your reservation in. 8)
