Just sitting here at work thinking about the 250R meet. We came up with some great idea's for activities a while ago.  Did any of them spark an interest?
I know the meet is still several months away, but do we have any idea how many people are hoping to be there? Should we try to get a head count? I ask about numbers mostly for planning the meet and great bbq lunch.
Also it was a treat to see Mr. Sanders show up at our camp and eat with us let alone go for a ride! Does anyone friendly with Arlen want to press him to appear? I will work on Pete as I am sure others will. I rode once with @havvinoj and @traxman a few years ago and had a blast. I have not seen Damon since that day. I would love to see someone strong arm him into making an appearance.  He is a pretty cool guy to shoot the poo with.
All things considered,  I have had a fantastic experience every year this took place.  I can't believe how far some people have traveled to attend. Hawaii, Ohio, California, Arizona, and Nevada to name a few. One crazy sob even flew into pdx and within a few hours purchased a 86 trx250r! That particular fella has a  permanent seat at my table.
Through this event and this forum I have met people I will be friends with for life.
I can't wait to see what this year's event brings us!

It's funny, 2 years ago we didn't have many "outside" replies and had a great showing.  Last year we had a lot more replies from Facebook and such but lower turnout.  As it gets closer, yes we'll try to get a firmer headcount.

Agreed on comments about Damon, Pete, and Eddie.  Damon's kid generally plays baseball and he coaches so tough to get away.  Pete - get a damn dog sitter - 6 month warning lol.  Eddie - yeah we'll have to mention it to him when it's closer.

I love the group picture idea - meet @ 3rd parking lot, the lunch, and group ride (Gene I'll bring a spare watch for you this year :D).  Anything else is just icing on the cake.

It would definitely be cool to get some of the old forum guys out there. I will also be letting Eddie know again. I cant wait. I should have 3 or 4 tagging along with me. Hope to work on a few others.

We try to go on group rides every day. We usually meet at the last parking lot and go from there. Last year we had Eddie Sanders come out and ride. Arlen was unable to come, but he will be invited again this year. Several of us also tried to get Pete (the owner of Hybrid Engineering)to come. There is a group of us that all kind of camp together. Last year we camped in the overflow area and that worked out pretty well. Take a look at the threads of the last three years and you will see some pictures.

Your dad wouldn't be the first 4 stroke rider tagging along.  He may be the topic of several jokes lol. Everyone that is in or camp is very cool....

My 250R is also a 4 stroke. 8)  It might even make it this year, we'll just have to see. I appeared last year for lunch, but without my R

I’ll be riding a 450R if I make it.  250R will go for back up.  Mine just felt dead on the low end last year.  Hard to climb the tree shots.   Don’t have time or money to deal with it.  Spent too much on the 4 poke. May be a CEO in my distant future.
