Just to keep things less frustrating in the thread and info search dept, I would like to keep this thread for info and questions and answers only,,,, so please keep your banter and BS in another soon to be approved thread.

It has been determined!!! :happy65:

 

Considering that the US farmers continue to make enough food, and the Americans don't get ahead of themselves in the eating habits,,,, so meaning,,,,, that all things remain equal and the river don't rise, I give you an idea of what the meal prices will look like at Niagara Shores.

Now keep in mind that these meals are not in the ordinary 'run of the mill' category. My experience with Dave and Ernie is that these boys know how to make food, and make it taste good!!!!

Breakfast will be served in the $10 area and dinner will be in the $20 range. Just so you know what you might be able to expect. And just so you know, Marca and I will be letting D&E do the cookin and cleanin,,and we can do the foolin around while they do.

 

BOOK NOW!!!

So now a heads up for some new info.

Some of us have received phone calls from Niagara Shores with respect to payment for the rally next year, and some maybe still to come.

This is an explanation:

Dave and Erney have been working very hard at getting their grounds and programs ready and running. They have run into numerous hitches and setbacks, but they remain undeterred. This is their first crack at doing such a thing, and seeing as 'good enough' is just not their norm, it has been a challenge. What has been put in place so far is super, dooper!!!

But, like I said there are hickups,, one being the registration/reservation process, and that is what concerns us with the phone calls presently. The boys had to go to an on-line reservation company to keep their heads on straight so to speak, but that proved to be a problem when it came to our reservations for the rally next year, for the prices would be increased about 10% overall. Dave and Erney considered this, had dialogue with the on-line folks and then decided that the best way for them to honor their prices would be to have all the monies taken care of before the January takeover of the registrations. Hench they put Heidi to work to call us all, to inform us of the problem and the process to get around the price increase and also to keep the on-line folks happy. Hoping this all works out, great guys these boys are, others might just have informed us that,, Opps, the prices had to go up.

So you have a choice, pay now and get the promised price, or wait until after January and pay the extra for reservation fees. I paid now.

let me add a couple of things to this..If you decide to pay now and then have to cancel at a later time, as long as you do it at least 2 weeks in advance of the rally it is my understanding that you will be refunded your money back.....next item you may still make reservations after the first of the year and receive the discount Ernie is giving the club but again it will be @ the 10% higher rate than posted....Ernie tells me that if you have a monetary problem at this time , speak directly to him and he will try to work something out with you..

Been noticing that a lot of us are reluctant to ride long distance or selling our bikes lately...YOU DON'T NEED A BIKE TO COME TO THIS RALLY.... Many of the attendees have been showing up in cages the past few years. We don't care how you get here.We just wan't you to come down and enjoy one of the best rallies around. So much to do here..so much fun visiting with everyone. Make that commitment and join us, you'll be glad you did. p.s. for those who asked... NIAGARA FALLS is a 30 mile ride from the rally. See you @ the Shores.
