    Default 2021 Green Mountain Rally (Northeast, formerly the Moosehead ally!)

    Hi everyone,

    It's time to make reservations for the GMR for September 2021. We "normally" hold this rally the first week after Labor Day. That conflicts with the major fall motorcycle swap meet "Rice-O-Rama".
    So would sliding the rally one week to 17, 18, 19, 20 Sep be acceptable to the regulars? Post your answers below and I'll make reservations accordingly. Thank you, Scott

    Hey Scott!

    Let me know if you need any leg work on my end. I'm done with missing these because of work. I missed seeing Jim last time because of COVID and I'm just going to come!

    Couple thoughts on the pushing to a week later, one being the temps are going to be brisker a week later, the leaves may also change which would increase leafer traffic and lastly (personal) work would restrict my ability to come for more that 1 night.

    Let me know if you need anything done on my end as I'm local.

    Thanks,

    Are there people that wont come because of Rice a Rama? I'll be there but we see 30's now at night, any colder and sleeping could be tough.

    Thanks for the feedback.
    The driver for sliding this a week is that Dennis, Todd and I have some more of Harry's stuff to move for Kathleen and Rice-O-Rama is the last opportunity this year to move some of that.
    I'll send out a group text too - look for more feedback.

    I'd like to be in as well as it's now the only time I get to see you guys being an ex-motorcycler.

    I won’t be in the states until mid September, hopefully in 2022 for me.

    Default VT Rally (AKA Moosehead Rally)

    The dates will be Sep 16, 17, 18 and 19, departing Sep 20.
    I was too late making reservations to get the pavilion this year, but I have 4 Lean-to's reserved.
    The website for Coolidge State Park is: Vermont State Parks - Coolidge (vtstateparks.com)
    There is a map there for the lean-tos. I tried to get at least 4 close to each other with what's available.
    They're close to the bathrooms, it's a little further to the showers.
    The sites are:
    Cherry
    Larch
    Spruce
    Pine
    Each site is $30/night total, $15 each with 2 at a site. I think there's enough room for a tent or two if needed at the sites as well.
    Another site nearby is open too, but the reservation charge would have been $620...

    I'll start updating names and nights staying, and we'll see how it goes.

    Scott - 4 nights - paid
    Andy - 3 nights
    Eli -
    Skip - 4 nights - paid
    Dave B -
    Rich - 4 nights (separate site)
    Jethro -
    Justin -
    Keith - ??
    Pano - ??

    Morning
    As I depart for another +16 hour work day I can say with confidence there will be a very good chance I will not be able to attend this weekend as it's typically our busiest sales week of the year. All my operations are down the better part of 9 Full time staff members and it seems we may have lost another last night. This employee crisis is one of the worst I've ever seen...

    Even if we are back to full staff levels I'll still need to be present to lead the new cooks, cashiers, managers and supervisors as they will be green going into our projected busiest academic year ever.

    I'll keep it tentative but this weekend is definitely not a good one for me.

    I want to say I do miss seeing you guys. Just sucks as work and personal life are extremely busy at the moment and it's only going to get crazier.

    My very best,
