2018 Naloc Rally Poll #1
« on: November 29, 2017, 16:36 »
Hi there,
Time to get started on planning the NALOC 2018 rally. I will also direct you all to join the facebook page that Shamrock set up for more discussion and exposure to other Laverda owners in North America.

I will run a series of polls here and as we get more and more inputs we can decide where and then when we want to hang out.

Thanks for your support,
Bob

I owned a farm right in the middle of the alphabet roads outside Madison, Wisconsin.  Sold it (stupid!!) - trying to move back.  Best to aim for June - May can be unpredictable weather wise...as in snow.  There is a huge bike event called "Rockerbox" that's now held at Road America race track in Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin - big vintage bike presence...July maybe?  Might be something to add to a rally agenda.

North America is a large place. Maybe it is time to have some regional chapters so that we can organise a bit closer to home  ....... otherwise anyone who can not or will not be able to come to a National event may lose interest.

I would love to come to a national event but at least 6 months would be needed to plan for such an event and one year would be better. Perhaps for your first National event it would be best to focus on making plans for year 2.

Outside of this thread and the poll, conversations-wise it seems like regional happenings is going to be the best bet for 2018.

Road America is like a second home to me since childhood, track days in cars, racing schools, race licensing and watching AMA and the Brian Redman Classic, and I have been to Rockerbox over the years in all its locations, just didn't make it to RA this last time. I like to go there to cheer on my AHRMA friends. I started and ended my racing career there. That's a good option for the midwest 2018 event. I am tempted to drag IAG out with me to the Blue Ridge Parkway tho.

Keep the conversation going. I can plan to produce a rally kit that can help individual delegates host their own localized event for 2018, and per Jim I would like to hold a national event in the four corners (Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado, Utah) in 2019 if that makes it easier for everyone to plan. I went to college in Ft Collins and we always find an excuse to get back to that are every year.

Coincidentally, my family is spending the holidays in a small town called Fairplay, CO south of Breckenridge and I have family and friends out there who can help scout rally options as well. I'm looking forward to getting in trouble with our 4runner in between skiing and watching logs burn. Look me up if you are out that way, I'd be glad to buy you a beer or two at the Fairplay Brewery in mid December.

Let's do this!
