New event

Recommended Posts

Hey. Myself and a fellow CIVR member apparently simultaneously have started to look into creating a new Spirit Lake event similar to the old AVR. A couple emails have been sent to the events committee with ideas, one for a campground event and one for a dinner / party, either or both of which coincide with the Boji Bike Rally which itself is the third weekend of August, weekend after Sturgis, same place same date as the old AVR. It was wisely suggested that the conversation take place here less someone get all butt hurt that a conversation happened about doing something fun and great for the club and it wasn't posted up here for everyone to shit on, I mean for everyone to see so nobody freaks out about back room closed door politicking.

 

So here it is, at least two of us are trying to step up and create a new VMC annual event. It takes time to collect bids and submit a proposal but we're trying and you heard it here first. Suggestions are welcomed.

Bob

"... butt hurt ..."

Yer killin' me, Bob!

 

I like the idea and would definitely consider attending. We can never have too many events and a Spirit Lake reunion always seemed like a good idea.

I'm a little butt hurt this AM, but I think it was yesterday's empanadas.

Good for you Bob!  The AVR had been on my bucket list (never been to one), so I would absolutely be in favor or such an event.    :y:

Ok I'd like to revive this thread in light of recent announcements. I know everyone says, "well someone needs to step up..." and I tried. But I'll be damned if I'm going to put money, time, and effort into making a great rally up in Spirit Lake only to have those cock snot mother fuckers turn the weekend into an Indian and Slingshot rally. So I say to hell with it, I'm out.

BUT, as a club I think we should still look at another national level event, just keep it far away from anything Polaris. We have a VMC National Meet that varies time and location depending on the LC that hosts it. How about a VMC Annual Rally same place, same weekend to go along with it? I'm thinking it should be centrally located with great riding. The Ozarks is the first thing to come to mind but CO might be another option. It shouldn't be a duplicate of the National Meet, we don't need two expensive hotel conference room gatherings, let's get outside the box and do something very different. Like reserving space at a park and have a party catered, everybody reserve your own rooms. Weekend activities could include a day at a water park or a large group river float. Something that requires less organization, less funds, but be another annual option for us to get together.
