Joe, I'm going to say the following weekend of the 20th-22nd. That would be the weekend after Mothers Day, and the third full weekend of May. When Glena and Jim return from the desert we'll be able to get a date set in stone.

Mothers Day is May 8 this year; happens on a Sunday, too. Bun Cooler has usually been wknd after, so May 13 -16th is my educated guess ... let me take another swig to make sure. Yup, sounds good to me.

Isn't The Bun Cooler the 3rd weekend in May? Since the 1st Saturday this year in May is on the first, the 3rd weekend would be as Red Fox Suggested. The 13th would be the early birds BBQ at the Sherman's.

The later the better in my humble opinion! :D

I looked over the 2022 May calendar. The first weekend in this coming May is Sat. the 1st with Sunday as the 2nd. That takes care of weekend #1. The 3rd weekend is as Red Fox suggested. But as others have noted we will really know when the Sheman's start working on it.

All I know I plan on attending!

Likely me too with friends from the SW! Be good to see you and the other fine folks of the NW! :) (y)

uhm, pretty sure May 1st 2022, is a Sunday - don't know what constitutes a first weekend though, Sat and Sun? or does Sunday the 1st count as a weekend?

(sits semi-patiently waiting for details from the Shermans)

Tim, you appear to be trapped in 2021. Run!, my friend, before the zombies catch up. ;)

A recall on the schedule: about 5 - 6 yrs ago, the Bun Cooler had been run on the first full wknd of June (delay due to scheduling reason I wasn't privy to).

But, for that year's delayed Bun Cooler: the weather was beautiful, one of the salmon runs up the river was in full swing, the weather was beautiful, we got several long long distance attendees (Michigan?), the weather was beautiful, BC had a large turn-out.

At that year's BC, I (and others) thought - why isn't BC always run on this weekend? Response then was availability of hotel & campground; and tradition. Well, just coming off of Covid this year, maybe timing is workable again?

Here's an update on my blog. Currently in the bottom of Copper Canyon in a pueblo called Batopilas in the state of Chihuahua. Dropped the bike yesterday on a remote section of 41 mile long dirt road. Taking the day off today to repair the bike and chill out. Here's a few pics.

May 1st for 2022 is a Sunday. The question would be is that considered the first weekend. If not, then the BC would be scheduled for May 20 to 23. Charlie, not sure how I got the 2021 calendar. I have a supposed smart phone, so I'll blame it. No zombies would survive anyways.

Tradition is it's the third full weekend of May, so this year would have us arriving on the third Friday of May.

We should plan for Bun Cooler on May 20-21-22? Don't make it later than that since the next weekend is Memorial Day, and there are other conflicts in June. I'm already registered for the Giant Loop rally in Oregon June 3-5.

I've been camping in the desert and am in an RV park this week. I am trying to get everything set up for the Bun Cooler. The internet here is terrible but I have contacted the resort and am trying to get ahold of the cater.

The date as always is the 3rd weekend of May. That will be the 5/20& 21. The banquet will be on Sat. the 21st.

Hopefully I will have all the information this week and I will have Kari post it if I can't

I would like to thank Jim for doing this while camped with bad web signal. (y)

I have everything close to done. I talked to the cater and she is working on the menu and prices. It is the same lady as last year. She is offering to make something for Fri. night when people come in so they won't have to ride back to town. She is also going to offer breakfast both Sat. and Sun. between 7 and 8. The banquet will be at 6 on Sat. night. We are thinking the banquet will be paid when you register and everyone will pay their own for the other meals.

I'm working with Kari to get the registration set up when I get all the information this next week

Daughter is coming in to town from France. She has plane tickets and time off from work. In other words, locked in dates. Other daughter and husband coming from California. Heading to Zion for a week.

God first, then Family...and everything else after that.

I have not been to one of these events before, and am not sure what to expect. It's about a 8-hour ride for me, so it looks like I'd be riding in Friday, and riding home Sunday.. Wondering if there will just be several day ride routes to choose from, then socializing and such in the evenings?

Also, are other bikes welcome? A friend and I had been talking about a trip to Montana, and the location of this meet would put us nearly there. I am thinking we could combine the two trips but he's not on a Connie or even a touring bike, but has no problem keeping up with me and doesn't mind putting down highway miles... And loves all bikes, as do I!

Thanks for the work putting this together, I hope I can make it!

Cheers,
Aaron

Aaron Yep, all kinds of available day rides. Plenty of socializing including a “formal” dinner. As far as bikes go, I sold my C14 five years ago and have been bringing a Wing since. People bring all kinds of bikes. No one cares.

What part of the county you coming from? You might be able to hook up with folks riding in?

Coming from just outside Portland, OR. It's close enough that doing it in one quick shot will be the way to go, under 500 miles. I've had much longer days on smaller bikes! :)

Unfortunately, my wife will be doing her last clinical rotation of her program so probably won't be able to get the time off to join me.

My friend is game to join me, but if it works out, I'm open to riding with anyone else on the way out there!

There will be maps of routes and lots of people to join up with.

I put the Bun Cooler on and don't even own a Kawasaki. We welcome all kinds of bikes. We even have occasional Harley and adventure bikes.

I finally got all the information and the registration has been turned in to the webmaster. It should be up any time.

It has been a real hassle trying to get things done when I have been in Arizona either dry camping with no internet or RV parks with very poor internet. To make matters worst, the caterer only uses a cell phone so she has problems sending the menu and prices. She takes a picture of handwritten information and usually I can't read it.

Fastenova,
I'll be on the way to the BC on Friday as well. Leaving from Cornelius, OR, about 20mi W of Portland. We could hook up and the 3 of us could ride out together if you wish.
welcome,

Yeah Cornelius is super close, we're in Tigard & Beaverton. That sounds like it could work. PM coming your way.

Ahhh Cornelius Pass...make a loop of it with Old Germantown Rd. and make 2 two passes before relaxing at a friends house in Hillsburrito. The good old days of the early 90's before it became choked with line crossing, cell phone addicted Prius and Subaru drivers. Sorry for the thread jack. Cool your buns!

Woohoo! I just booked a room and confirmed that my riding buddy Scott and I will be joining y'all in May. We're planning on taking a couple of extra days after the COG meet to explore the area and take a long way home. Very much looking forward to meeting some fellow COGers and riding through beautiful Idaho!

Thanks to the organizers for putting this on and taking care of all the details so we don't have to. I know organizing big events like this are a lot of work, it's much appreciated.
