I think lake herman would be a place to look at. I actually just got married there this summer.....there is a place called Camp Lakodia which is owned by a company I use to work for out of Sioux Falls called CSD. They have a ton of cabins, a dining hall, a reception hall with a stage, and even a million dollar lodge...(not to mention a ton of regular camp sites) One of the best things about this place is that it is considered a "deaf camp" which means that we won't be bothering a lot of people with our loud exhaust! At any rate, this is more of the feel I was going for....I still think we should do the Hot Harley Nights and everything else, but for our first gathering, it would be nice to actually be able to meet everyone rather than yelling "WHATS YOUR NAME AGAIN" over a band playing in the background?! Just my opinion......Like I said, if any of you guys want a hand in planning this, shoot me a pm so we can get going on somthing.......

Another thing to consider, we are dealing with a Bit*h of a winter, I know I for one am going to be overly ready to get this spring feavor out of my system, so do we want to make this more of a spring gathering....maybe mid to late may/June??.......Somthing to kick around?!!

I would be up for an early camp out. Lake Herman sounds like a nice place and its not far for me. Hopefully we can get something cooking.

So I sit, feeling like I got hit by a any rate, I should have some details panned out by early next week....keep checking back!!

Alright, here are the plans for the meet & Greet:

We will be staying at Newton Hills State Park. The date will be set for JUNE 7th 2008! I will give you 2 links, the 1ST link will be the main site with the phone number you need to call and make your camping reservation, the 2ND is a map of the park grounds......on this map, look for the area that Cabins 1,2,3, and 4 are in, everyone who is planning on tenting it should reserve tent sites as close to those 4 cabins as possible (to avoid mixing others sites with ours) have your map either printed out, or your computer on while making reservations.....if the site you choose is taken, you will be able to ask for another and so on, until you find one that is available.... A bunch of us from around here will be staying both Friday(6th) and Sat.(7th) If you would like to join us, shoot me a PM and I will give you my # so we can make further plans.

We are not able to make reservations until ***MARCH 9TH***(open 7 days a week) they only allow you to make reservations 90 days in advance. Their office opens at 7AM Central time....I would suggest that you call as early as possible to get the site you want. ... nHills.htm

We will meet at Newton Hills Cabin #4 on Sat at 12PM, make the ride out to the park and get set up. Once everyone is settled in, we will go for a cruise on all the awesome back Hwys around that area, and possibly stop off in Bersford for lunch. After that....we'll continue our journey to ???? I know it's a bit unconventional to not have a maped out ride, but what the Hell, we'll have just as much fun making it up as we go right!!

So there you go.....If I'm missing any details, or you need further info, shoot me a PM.

Just a heads up....I am going to attempt reserve cabin 3.....I think the tent sites that should be reserved are:


The method to my madness is if we get all of those tent sites along with at least cabins 3&4, we will have that whole dead end area for the X'ers....that way, we can party on in to the night at/around cabin's 3&4 and won't have as many people around to complain about us!

planned on purpose to put us next to the Vault Toilets (whatever that means)...

is it limited to one tent per tent site?

It's on my calendar but there are a few other things that i may be a late reservation.

2002 1800 C/F/R - custom paint by Hoss1
2000 VTR1000F Superhawk - yellow
2000 Ducati 996 - red
1994 XR650L - dirty
A witty saying proves nothing.

Yeah, not sure what the vault toilets are all about?.....I think you can have two tents per site but you may want to check on that when you reserve.......Hope you can make it!
