2008 R1/R6 Forum Convention at Deal's Gap Official Thread

ALL UPDATES WILL BE RIGHT HERE ON THIS POST

Ok, it's that time again this will be the Official thread for all the info for the 2008 R1/R6 Forum East Coast Convention at Deal's Gap. Let's keep this thread for info and convention talk. The R6-Forum will be joining us again this year. The R6 Forum is owned by the same people, the McCoy's, that own the R1 Forum so we are going to make this a combined event for this year. Although we will keep up with all the R1 Forum stuff here and they will keep up with the R6 Forum Stuff over here.


FUNDS REQUIRED: $100 per person for dinner each night. $20 for a convention shirt. Add $5 for paypal fees. Total is $125 per person.

Cut off will be May 15th 2008 for that money. We will have arm bracelets to identify if you have paid or not.


Here are the details to date:
Date: June 16-22th
These are the dates that it will Officially be going on. But the Dinners will still be Monday-Friday and Yamaha Dinner Saturday again. If you can't come the whole week at least try and get there by Wed or Thursday. The whole area is unbelievable during the week when things aren't as crowded.

Make your reservations early. IT WILL FILL UP!!! It would really suck to not be able to get a cabin at Fontana

nod There are other places to stay but you want to stay up there with us for sure.

They do have Inn rooms available this year, but I suggest getting a cabin. You can come out a lot better and they can get you closer to where will be set up in a cabin also. And to be honest some of their cabins are just a cheap as the Inn Rooms. Look at their website and inquire of them by phone to make your choice. 1-800-849-2258. I would suggest making reservations as early as you can, everywhere fills up that time of year up there. Make sure you tell them you are with the R1 Rally so you get the special rates and so that they put you with us, if there are any problems ask to speak with Toni or Debbie or just let me know. They have blocked off cabins and rooms for us. So start making reservations as soon as you can. For the guys coming up as singles I would suggest getting together with other folks on the Forum and splitting the cost of a small or large cabin. There are gonna be several cabins available. Some of them brand new!
Fontana also has campsites available if you want to camp. They are approx. a mile down the road.

CUT OFF DATE TO RESERVE CABINS/ROOMS IS MARCH 1ST

We have X amount of cabins blocked off for us at a discounted rate, after March 1st they will be released to the general public and WILL sell out. SO GET YOUR RESERVATIONS MADE!!!!


Everyone is welcome – but please realize that this group is made up with many types of riders of different skill levels and desires. This is not about getting together to race, or to drag other people into riding above their limits! Everyone is expected to ride at their own pace and have a good time!



FOOD: I will start a thread for this shortly and I need everyone to vote in this thread so I know how much food to get Fontana to prepare.

COOK: Fontana Village

REMEMBER: Deadline of May 10th for all funds!!!

Alcoholic beverages: BYOB

T-SHIRTS: PRE ORDER ONLY!! I will post up a thread for the shirts when we get that setup.


PHOTOGRAPHY: Snapz. We know as Laura. As far as I know she will be joining us again to take all the photos. I will have her start a thread and handle all this.

PRIZES: Of course we will have prizes again this year. These will be given out at the Yamaha dinner on Saturday night. You HAVE to be a member of the R1 Forum or R6 Forum and also on the definates list to be eligible for the Prize drawing. We have some killer prizes every year so you need to make sure I put you on the definates list if you are coming. No maybes, I said definates...please remember that.


EMERGENCY CONTACT INFO: Fill out sheet upon Check in.


UPDATE ON EVENTS:

Monday-Friday at 6:30pmish will be dinner on Shuckstack Road...EXCEPT THURSDAY will be on the Boat!!!

Whitewater Rafting-TBA

Dirtbiking-TBA

Party Boat- Thursday Night

Saturday- night at 6:30 is the Big Yamaha Sponsored dinner. The prize giveaway will be during this also.

.
Most everything is discussed and planned out in the evenings around dinner and hanging out. If you want to get up a ride or find out where people are going the next day come up to Shuckstack Road and hang out. If you get to Fontana during the day just head to the CROT and you will find someone from the forum.

Ok R6 Forum guys...as you have seen this event is HUGE! Articles in several major magazines recently and on TV shows also. They wouldn't be doing writeups for this if it wasn't a big deal. So let's see some R6 Forums guy this year!

Awesome!!!!!!! YOu are on the list.

What dmccarley said, 100 for the food, 20 for a shirt, if you pay with paypal add 5 bucks for paypal fees.

I will have that thread setup soon and have a running list of who is paid.
