As I am sure everyone now knows, The 2020 National Meet will be held in Johnson City TN

The Dragon Riders LC is proud to host this event and look forward to you joining them for a weekend of riding, friendship and fellowship that we all cherish as a result of our association with the VMC. 

More info is forthcoming regarding reservations, registration, events, etc. Please stay tuned here and on social media sites. Additionally, the official VMC Website for the 2020 Meet will be rolled out in October. 

But in the mean time, mark your calendars for Aug 27 - 30, 2020.  And come early and make a week of it!

Nothing against the Dragon Riders but another East coast meet is disappointing.

Tennessee is not the East Coast.  Plus, if other areas want to host a meet, all that is needed is to work with the Events Committee to make their proposal in a proper and committed way.  Unfortunately, to my knowledge we have not had any viable proposals from other areas lately.

I'm aware. Eastern TN if you will. Still way far East for most of the country. Last 2 meets East of the Mississippi this will make the third

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.

Looking forward to registration and reservation info. Any idea when this will be out?

It is being worked on.  It always takes longer to put together than expected.  It will most likely take a few more weeks.  I am looking forward to signing up as well.

I tried to go ahead and make reservations at the Holiday Inn but it says nothing is available at that time!

Did you call them?  You have to talk directly to the hotel, not their call center. If it rings more than 3 times, hang up and try again.
