Once again I had a great time on the V2V this year, and can't wait to see everyone again at the National Rally in Vegas. Get your reservations in  as soon as possible, so Rose and the committee can get some idea of how many to plan for........see ya down the road to 
Vegas!

Getting pretty darn excited to begin our adventure in a few weeks!! How is everything coming along?? Any updates that we need to know regarding mask mandates and such? How is the registration going? I cannot wait to meet everyone!!

The event is still a solid GO!  At the moment, we do have Mask Mandates in effect in Nevada.  Currently the mask mandate is for indoors only, not while seated and dining, and no social distancing is required, so meetings and the Banquet will be as normal.  If this changes we will post it up soon as we get confirmation.  We have had a number of people cancel over covid concerns.  Some have been from Canada and are primarily border crossing concerns, and a few have had personal issues.  The current count is 164 people, somewhat lower than we were hoping for, but it isn't over yet.   And, if this is what we end up with, it  will just be that more cozy for those of us attending.

We look forward to seeing everyone there!

Wife and I are registered and ready to go. She will not be able to ride down with me and will be flying down on the 9th. One of my PSVR chapter members is letting me borrow his pop up tent trailer to use on the way down (camping so much cheaper than a hotel). We are both excited about the meet, she has always wanted to visit Las Vegas (I'm more for the rides than gambling...lol). We are the only 2 Puget Sound Victory Riders that will be showing up. See ya!!

Yes, sorry, I really hoped to get over to meet you all this year, but with the Covid situation it just isn’t practicable.  I cannot get my second shot before October, and returning here would entail 14 days in quarantine in a hotel.  I am sure it will be a fantastic event and I can’t wait to see the photos.

I'd like to recommend ALL attendees get covid tested after getting home.  Someone I know who is fully vaccinated returned from LV recently.  He was asymptomatic but went for testing immediately upon his return as requested by his family.  HE TESTED POSITIVE.  He's in his early 40's.  His doctor told him he probably would have died from covid had he not been vaccinated due to him having suffered congestive heart failure last year.  His case is not uncommon.   

Stay safe y'all

I was able to get a confirmation on vendor tax ID. Since our event is small we do not need our vendors to get the Nevada’s Vendors Tax ID. I was calling around and was told to call another number, then another number and so on and so on.  I’m happy to say we have our venders covered. 
See everyone soon.

Friends,

Regrettably we must cancel our attendence and I have just cancelled two rooms in the Golden Nugget if you are looking for space and cannot find it. Have a great time everyone.

See you next year perhaps,

The wife and I are towing the bike to Las Vegas. Rented a U-Haul motorcycle trailer. What's the parking situation for us at the Golden Nugget?

Glad to hear you will make this year's event!  Are you staying at the event hotel?  If so, trailer parking is provided for by the hotel for guests.  If not, you will have to find trailer parking where you are staying.  As for Motorcycle parking, guests are of course taken care of, and non-hotel guest attendees will be allowed to park their motorcycles for pre and post ride, and for the Banquet.  On Sunday there will be a brief Bike Blessing and all are welcome.

We will miss you Llama.  May our paths cross down the road...

Dear Rose:

I can only imagine how happy you must be that this will soon be an historic event

Despite viruses, a defunct brand, declining interest, and wholotta BS (they moved the trailer parking?) there will be a national out west

Since I moved to Prescott I'm no longer a member of Sin City, but you guys have done great and I know that some very valuable memories will be forged

Break a motherfuckin leg!
