Hi Will,

Where will the "Saturday Night Banquet" be held?  I'm going regardless and am just curious.

Hi Tosh,
It will be the Spaghetti Dinner as has been done in recent years. I changed the description.
I look forward to seeing you,
Will

Every Banquet should have Escargot for starters.
Will bring my special forks just in case.

I'm heading out tomorrow morning for Corydon and looking forward to seeing everyone. For those on the road, safe travels!

If anyone wants to save a few bucks on a room, I've got a double reserved at the Super 8. Tax and all for 1/2 of two nights will be $77 and some change.

I just got home from Corydon, IN (needed to get an early start and get home for a previous commitment) after spending a fine weekend at the River City Ride. We had a route to lunch yesterday that absolutely fit me to a T... lots of little backroads with 2 lanes being about the biggest thing we'd see. Many of the roads were "sort of" two lanes, but with only fog lines on the outside edges and no center line, it felt more like we were on glorified single lane roads. I liked it a lot! :-)

Don Ciccone brought a Motus MST for test rides (the base model if you can call it that) from the Indian/Slingshot/Motus dealership where he works, and I took advantage of that opportunityl. If you want to take a test ride, you can go by the shop any time or come to the Mail Pouch Fly By later this month since he's bringing a Motus to that rally as well.

Don Payne ran a fine event, and he also let me solicit donations to go to the Ride For Kids. And as if a reward for his hard work, one of Don's tickets was drawn in the 50/50.

Thanks to Don and his crew of fine Indiana folks including Cathy, Will, Carl, Jerry, and more. Thay all contributed and their help was invaluable.

It was a GREAT weekend!  Lots of thanks to all of the many volunteers that helped to put on such a fine event.  Sorry to say that it was my 1st time there.  Happy to say that it won't be my last!

It was a great event!  Many thanks to Don & Cathy, Will B, Carl and a few others.   :clap:

I got home about noon as did Deb and we only had a few minutes where a tiny bit of rain came down. 

We had 3 long distance visitors: Tom Reid from Colorado, Jim Roberts/Iowa State director, and the third name escapes me but he was from Milwaukee and will help with STAR 2018! 

ps.  Don - I liked the "new" cookout area and my guess is that if you took a survey, it'd come up very positive because of the larger area making it feel more open and it also had a lot more shade.

I stayed 1/4 mile away in a Super 8 to save a few $, but the Holiday Inn Express was a MUCH better venue for the event. I wouldn't hesitate for a second to base the event at the HIE again. With that spacious parking area, roomy breakfast area (for indoor sessions), and as I understand, remodeled rooms, I'd give it a big thumbs up.

Thanks once again to Don, Cathy, Will, Carl and all the other volunteers who put on such a great event! I had a really fun weekend. The weather was excellent and this year had one of the best routes ever for RCR. I can't wait until next year.

Had the most fun in memory at this year's RCR. Great route, tasty and fun lunch stop, nice weather and especially fun social time. Everyone was so friendly and conversation just flowed the whole weekend. Good time!

As Norm pointed out, the social time was great. The big parking lot, a variety of tables, and cooler weather led to people staying outside to kick tires and tell lies much later into the evening than some of our events.

Just got home yesterday after a detour to Knoxville.  I wanted to thank everyone I met for making me feel welcome at the River City Ride.  A special thanks to Glen Maxwell for leading me through the morning ride since the GPS on my Wing wouldn't take the download.  It was all I could do to keep up.
The motel was a great venue, even with the construction.  Not sure if we will make it to STAR 2018, but will do our best.  Thanks again for a great event.
