That time of year again folks, time to start thinking of attending the largest touring rally in the Country.  Last year many of us attended and had a great time with great friends. Last year though, we stayed in Saratoga Springs, and although it was a nice place it was 35 miles away from town and thereby eliminated us from some of the local attractions etc., especially at night. 35 miles was simply too far to ride on that Northway without overhead lights after being tired from the days events :(, it just wasn't the safest thing to do. Anyway, moving on to this year. One of our very own, Steve D., found a place that is only approximately 10 miles from town in Queensbury, this is of course is great and we thank him :). We are putting a list of attendess together and asking anyone interested to chime in here on the forum. For reservations;

the Souls will be Lodging at:

 

America's Best Inn & Suites

 518-793-8891

 24 Big BOOM Road, Queensbury , New York.

When  you call mention Steve's name so we can all be together in the

 same location. Also if you have a Triple A or AArp card let

 them know.

  The Web Site Is Americas Best INNS glen

 falls/Queensbury. There are rooms available NOW.

 hope to have a good turnout.

 

In addition, if you are attending, please begin to consider which Events we'd like to register for at Americade, some suggestions are as follows;

 

*A La Carte registration (wristband and access to all areas-kind of necessary)

*Street Parking pass (again bought once we get there and kind of necessary)

*Free Fireworks, dessert, awards on Friday Night (did I mention free)

*3 course dinner Friday Night ( includes all you can eat, door prizes etc.)

*Geico Get up and go Breakfast (Cheap, good chow, puts you in town early Saturday)

*One of the many Mini-Tours on Friday

(the Vermont covered Bridges one looks interesting and includes a meal) or

one of the shorter ones.

Check everything out at;

http://tourexpo.com/data/index.php

 

We shouldn't wait too long to decide and register, there are discounts for doing so early

 

Attending so far;

 

1-Steve D.

2-Bob D.

3-George C.

4-Bob E.

5-Debbie

6-Artie H.

7-Frank A.

 

Pease let us know who else is interested or may be attending and your thoughts on events etc.

There has been a suggestion to possibly visit Lake Placid, there is a mini-tour that does that as well. I guess what we really need here is to start getting opinions from folks as to how much riding they'd like to do on  Friday. The Lake Placid mini-tour is about 200 miles round trip and the VT covered bridges is about 180, there are others as well that are shorter. I urge all of you to go to the TourExpo website (Americade) and check out the different mini-tours, we need some opinions soon, these will sell out, some faster than others. This is the big decision, after that the rest is easy and we can all begin to register. I know we rode ourselves un-guided last year and had a great time, but for the price of these, there will be no wrong turns, an easy pace, and a meal is included, kind of makes life easy at that point. Let us all know what you think.

Okay folks, its been a while since the last AMERICADE update, so far we have a decent showing and most of us have pre-registered for the events that we would like to participate in once we get there. The Souls is a great group and it would be great to have more of its members sharing in the AMERICADE experience, so let's go folks, who else is gonna jump in on this?, hotel info is here, don't worry about registration, it can be done up there, we had lots of inquiries and maybes, now lets see who else is going. Hope to see some more posts and attendees here in the forum.

I just bought a brand new one, made sure it was "shock proof" and "waterproof", (LOL) and fits in my vest. I simply cannot wait for this trip. How about that suggestion of going up on Wednesday to Frank's house in Ashland (Route 23 of NYS Thruway Exit 21) and hanging out, then leisurely riding into Lake George Thursday morning, last we spoke he was into it and has pleny of room. Might make for some real icing on the cake with the trip.

Then up to meet up with our upstate member(s), location TBA. As sure as everything is sured up it will be sent and posted. Hope your colors are on and you're ready to represent. Will keep you posted.

We should probably look to meet at LIE Exit 56 Gulf at about 8-30AM KSU about 9 AM and then head into the Cross Island Marina to meet up with the Nassay guys at about 10. I will call Frank and find out the best place to pick him up on the way after that. As far as I know Suffolk should be Bob E,  me, and Dale, not sure if Bobby D is going east or west for the meet or we could maybe pick him up along the way as well, let's see what he wants.

just to reply, yes, 8-8:3 Exit 56- you ,me, Bob E. & Deb, and possibly 1 or 2 more, your buddy as well as another fella Steve D knows , picking up Bobby D on the way and will meet Steve D plus at the CIP Marina about 10. Then a quick stop at OCC Exit 17ish on the Thruway to pick up Frank A., then on our way. OCC should not be a problem this year, we will simply take the exit, you can see it from the thruway. No GPS this year! LOL! if all goes well, we should be up in plenty of time to complete registration and get parking stickers before they close up at the holiday inn. Might need to go into town first though before hotel but we'll play that part by ear. See everyone in the AM.

I'm asking for all pictures taken, if you have any please email me with them. If you know of one of the guests who took pics, try to get them to me as well. If I can compile everything, I can try to do another DVD for everyone.
