    Weekend getaway-Gettysburg

    Anybody going? 13-15 April.
    Gettysburg is my hometown and I live just outside of town. While I won't be attending in an official capacity, I'm more than willing (time permitting) to go riding with anybody who's in town.

    I know they have rides planned; I was just throwing it out there that if anybody wanted to "wander around" with a local I'd be there. I'm sure I can squeeze out at least one day for a ride (busy time for me). And of course I like meeting new folks.

    I'll play it be ear and we'll see what happens.

    Schedule?

    Does anyone know the schedule of events? What time does registration begin?

    I know Friday kicks off with a reception and cash bar. What time? What does the reception include?

    There will be several MARs members in attendance and we are trying to make a plan. Should we plan on a group dinner elsewhere?

    By the way, anyone and everyone is welcome to gather with us!

    I have not attended a MOA event before and I'm not sure what to expect. I did not sign up for any of the tours but now that I look at the schedule I just received in the mail I am wondering whether there might be openings - the information in the ON magazine and on the MOA site has not been very helpful. Does anyone have insight into this?

    I think you can sign up for the rides when you get there. Notice that the Hawk Mountain ride is 204 miles and will be just 3 hours (9-noon) so only S1000RR riders are allowed...... We will actually be returning late afternoon from that ride, everyone is welcome.

    Smile Gettysburg weekend getaway

    I wanted to say thanks to all the BMW MOA riders on my tours. You all were great, and thanks for all the kind words. See you on the road somewhere this summer and next April at Gettysburg.

    For those interested in a scenic ride through Columbia, Pa with a lunch stop at Prudhomme's Cajun Kitchen, the MARs group will gather in front of the hotel around 9:30-10ish.

    You guys must be keeping a low profile--I rode west of Gettysburg on 30/26/484/522/16/984/233 yesterday and only saw one guy who hadn't been able to register for the event.
