    Is there are reason advance signup is necessary? I realize the need for planning, but my plans increasingly get altered for everything from severe thunderstorms predicted (the weather radio said "spotter activation requested") to family responsibilities. Being retired means you can do what you want when you want-guess again!
    Plans change for everybody. We mainly need a count for parking at event time. Hope you can make it.

    We can ask but I doubt it. The demo area is an area restricted to motor vehicles.

    Ridin curves,

    If I manage to make the trip and am without wife, we can have our own motorcycle camping demo at the group site.

    Not sure why it did not open. You should be able to click on the sign up link and get the page open. If you can not open the link, we will add your info from our end.

    Sorry to hear about your shop man.
    You must be talking about the year (couple years ago I think) were we waited to long to reserve the group site for the Grayson Highlands Fall Festival. That's the only time we did not have it since it started.
    The winter hang at Grayson Highlands got canceled a few years back because of really bad winter weather though.

    You do not have to sign up on the spread sheet.
    If most people do, it gives us a better idea about food for group meals and stuff.
    There are always a few signed up that don't make it and a few show up that were not on the list.
    No big deal.
    Hope you can make it.

    The only thing about that is motor vehicles are restricted to the parking areas.
    One part of our parking area is gravel but if I remember right, the natural area next to it might be to grown up to use for the motorcycle camping demo.
    We can ask the rangers if motorcycles could be pushed into these areas for such but we want to respect their decision so as to stay on their good side.
    They have been good to us.
