Ecr 2015

Is slated for the Skyline Resort in Ghent, WV from Wednesday, September 9th through Sunday, September 13th for three days of great riding, both scenic and technical.

Book your room by calling the resort at (304) 787-6201. (Best to call Mon-Fri between 7 AM and 3 PM and speak with Jody.) Tell them you're with the ECR (or East Coast Rally) and remind them of the $50.night rate for rally participants.

Invite your riding friends for a great weekend of riding and fun!

Sorry I didn't see your question sooner.

Three days of riding. Arrive late Wednesday and leave on Sunday.

AFAIK, I'm the only active participant of this board planning to attend. Seems to me that 6 or 7 inactive members will be there along with at least two spouses and two or three friends who have never been members here. The tally board shows 12 committed to go and 4 with "maybe" as their status. Don't know how accurate or "official" that is.

Insider info: Rides are planned with the New River Gorge Bridge and the Pocahontas Exhibition Coal Mine. Pinnacle Rock *might* be on the list, too.

FWIW, previous rally locations (in order):
o Roanoke, VA (2 times)
o Newport News, VA
o Hendersonville, NC
o Blairsville, GA
o Hillsville, VA
o Spruce Pine, NC
o Franklin, WV
o Abingdon, VA
o Prestonburg, KY

Early discussions for 2016 are converging on Boone, NC for 2016.

Soooo... Is there a 2016?

Sometimes it seems like I'm arguing, that's just how I work out a solution:.. Other times I'm arguing.

September 14 through 16. Alpen Acres Motel, 318 Old US Hwy 321, Blowing Rock, NC 28605. 888-297-7981 Link. Ten rooms reserved through 25 July, five or six already booked. 10% discount if you correctly convey "ECR" or "East Coast Rally" but cancellation goes up from 24 hours to a week.

Don't know if the organizer will be posting anything on this site. Probably can't after all the password/security issues. Don't know what all he's got planned but there's no shortage of GREAT roads in the area. I'm reasonably sure one of the lunch stops will be Tropical Grill.

My as-yet-incomplete plan is to head to Staunton, VA a few days early. If I can, I'll go to Richmond to meet (and maybe ride with) some friends there before taking a couple of days to ride the Blue Ridge Parkway before the rally. Might have one to three riding along with me down the BRP. Might be going solo. It will be another month before I start sorting through the options.

Alright, @adlowe thanks for the info, I didn't actually believe anyone would respond there lol.

Now, to just figure out how to take vacation days the week of my coworkers 30th anniversary...

That's some scenic riding around Blowing Rock. Lots of great destinations, and roads getting to them!

Sadly, I will be in an oceanfront room at Wrightsville Beach, NC that week. Such sweet sorrow...
