Final Fall Fling #2 October 18,19,20, 2019

The 2019 Final Fall Fling #2 ride will take place on October 18,19,20, 2019 in Clinton Ark at the Super 8 by Wyndham hotel. The hotel is located on Hwy 65 in Clinton Ark. Clinton is located right in the center of northern Arkansas with awesome roads in every direction. I have 10 rooms blocked off for COG (more available if needed). The hotel phone number is (501) 209-4358. They gave us a rate of $65/night + tax. Be sure to mention you are with the Concours Owners Group when making a reservation. The hotel is centrally located near restaurants and shopping areas. So lets plan on meeting in Clinton Arkansas in October and enjoying some Arkansas twisties and visiting with our COG family. This ride has been posted to the calendar.

Good morning people, I hope you’re well. Does anyone know if the Big Bend ride is happening or not? If not I’ll probably do this ride. I haven’t seen anything about Big Bend yet. Sorry if I’m behind the curve on this.

Your not really behind the curve. Everyone is asking the same question.
We've been asking about a date for the Big Bend Rally all year.
Apparently Craig decided not to do the event and no one stepped forward in his place.

The Fall Fling is still a go, {ie; Jim and I are going to Arkansas to ride} but we don't have many registered.
If anyone wants to come ride with us, please let us know..
We have to release the Motel Rooms soon.

Ride safe, Ted

  NOTE: We put it on the schedule for people to see, but it will probably not be an official COG event.
                  Just a ride with whomever wants to come ride with us..

I'm trying to work this into my travel schedule, now.  I have a nearby TDY so it'll probably work  (pending my health issues..).  :motonoises:

Ok, I’m in! Just able to attend Friday night, Saturday and leaving Sunday. Just under 500 miles up there so I should be able to find some great roads getting there to make up for not getting up there Thursday night. Looking forward to seeing everyone.

Great... There are roads along your route. You may even be able to go by Queen Whilomena {sp?} or the Pig Trail if you want to take the time, but the roads further north are far better.

Ride safe, Ted

I do not know if I can come to this yet.  I may have other obligations and can not be sure. 

I did notice there is a Walmart right next door.  If I come I may just try to put the van in the wm parking lot.  That would be cheap and easy to cancel.

That should work. Let us know your plans.
We asked about using the Walmart Parking Lot for a guy with a Motor Home last year.
Some of the COG locals told us they see others doing it at that location.

fyi; This is not an official COG event, just a get together of friend's that want to ride with us.
            :rotflmao: :great:

Ride safe, Ted

Just FYI,
  As Ted mentioned this in NOT an official COG event, just friends gathering for some good riding and visiting. If you have any questions feel free to PM either one of us. Thanks.

You've got my curiosity piqued.  What is the difference between an "official" COG event and just some friends who happen to be COG members getting together to ride? ::)

Only difference is, no registration fee, no meals provided & no door prizes.  :motonoises:  Other than that there is no difference.

I will say Ted called yesterday begging & crying, wanting me to ask the wife if she'd fix chili again. She did so last year. Since she likes everybody that shows up (even Ted most of the time) & likes having everyone here. There will be 1 chili dinner served at my place.

Hey Ted,  :nananana:

Yahoo. Please tell your bride I sed "thank you"!!!!
Unlike you, she's good people...

umm/uhh/err,,, Ok Cliff; I guess {Since you asked her} I'll take back half the nasty things I just sed about you to.  :08:
                                                      :sign0103: :sign0103: :sign0103:

OK Gang, it's arranged, Chili dinner at Cliffs on Saturday night. I'll bring some deer Sausage to tune things up too.
  {Jim's buying the beer}.  shh, don't tell him yet.
We can go to Cliffs in my (and someone else's (?)} Trucks so ya'll can have some of his beer..

Ride safe, Ted

More on Not an official COG ride;
    Because we had so few sign up early, we did not arrange insurance/registration fee/Referee/meals/door prizes..
    COG will not allow us to do a COG Rally without the insurance/Referee; so we opted to go riding in Arkansas anyway,,, and
    thought maybe a few fiends might just happen to show up. 
        Does that clear the fog?

It is entirely up to the event host to ask to sanction and insure an event.  COG have many events that are not sanctioned and insured.

If EZ to do, go ahead, as it could help us with a count for Dinner at Cliff's on Sat night.
But, your note here is sufficient.

See you there.
Ride safe, Ted

Ted:  Sorry for being so late.  I have been on a long road trip and I have been away from my 'puter ( usually a good thing ).  I will be there for the ride as long as everything comes in for my trailer.  At least I have my room reservations anyway.  See ya in a couple of weeks!

Never slow down!

15 signed up, with notes in this thread & on the registration list I come up with 19. 1 girlfriend, 2 wifes & Dan's brother (Ken). With the 2 of us it makes 21. We'll figure chilli for a couple dozen at least, 1 of the kids could show up. They kinda like hanging around you old farts.  :))

I called the hotel yesterday and they said 8 of the 10 rooms I had blocked off for COG were reserved. If we need more rooms let me know.

When I called for a room last week they said they had no record of a Concours group reserving a block of rooms so I had to pay full price.

Call them back and tell them your with the COG  group. They should work.  They should’ve been able to figure this out but evidently not.

I just spoke to the lady in Clinton and she has us on file. Did you call the number I posted on this thread? If not call back and ask for Lori.
