Title: Canaan Valley 2022
Post by: Shoop on December 06, 2021, 02:47:24 PM

The 2022 Canaan Valley MSTA Rally will be held at the Canaan Valley Resort near Davis, WV on the dates of May 19-22, 2022. This Just for Fun rally is open to all motorcycle riders, regardless of club affiliation. There is NO RALLY FEE for this event, however we will be collecting donations for the Ride For Kids Foundation (suggested donation of $10). Beyond the small costs for registration, etc., all donations will go to the fund, so please give what you can.

We will offer the same street and ADV routes that we used for the 2021 STAR, but we’ve refined them to address concerns noted last June. They will be available for download to GPS devices.

The Canaan Valley Resort has given us group rates for 4-BR cabins ($303/night) and lodge rooms ($99/night) - discounted 30-40 percent from the seasonal rates. They are holding 10 rooms and five cabins under the MSTA name until March 19. You can reserve your room by calling the resort at 304-866-4121. Ask for a room in the MSTA block to get the discount. Or you can reserve online at:

NOTE: People who want to use the cabins should coordinate a group of four or more. If you form the group before you register, the resort can take separate payments. Otherwise, one person will need to make the deposit and advance payment, and then collect from the other members who stay at the cabin.

On site registration hours will be Thursday from 5-6 pm, Friday from 7:30-8:30 am and 5-6 pm, and Saturday from 7:30-8 am. If you cannot make these times, please contact me for other arrangements.

If you have any questions, call Chris Shoop @ 304-488-9128 (reasonable hours) or Email me at

I just made a reservation for one of the "primitive" campsites in the Canaan Valley campground (there are only 3 and 2 of them were already reserved for that weekend. The other sites are all RV drive-thru, etc., and are much more expensive.
If someone wants to pitch their tent on the same site, let me know. I anticipate arriving the 19th to have 2 full days of riding before heading back home Sunday the 22nd.

I enjoyed the event very much.  The riding and the scenery were great.  It's already a reminder on my calendar for next year.  Thanks to Chris and the volunteers who made it happen!

Thanks for taking the reins on this, Chris! As they used to say in a local small town newspaper after events "And a good time was had by all."
