CANCELLED - CROSSING BORDERS - Aug 8,9,10 2014

Post by joeracket » Sun Jun 08, 2014 11:44 pm

:shock: :shock: :shock: ........... due to the lack of enthusiasm and poor response for this ride it is now cancelled ........... after discussion with danny it was deemed not worth his efforts in organizing this event if no one was going to show ............ so much for the national meets ...... for all those who have booked rooms in Lloyd ensure that you cancel them........... the west side gang have something in the works for august ........ stay tuned for updates ...... :) :) :)

Sorry to hear about the lack of interest .... unfortunately for Mrs Wrangler and I we just cannot do a trip like that .... she just started a new job after 10yrs of being a stay-at-home mom and I have two elderly folks that I just cannot leave for more than a day or two.

:think: :think: :think: .......... probably the end of the national meets ............ distances and time involved seem to have put a kaibash on them ........... I would assume more regional meets in the future ....... :think: :think: :think:

I am sorry I had to cancel,But with working out of town all summer it's not worth
the effort for just a handful of people.
THANKS to everyone that booked and put it forword to come
I understand the reasons for not coming...I have made all the plans to go to the east runs...but life
always steps in ...maybe someday it will all work out for the whole forum to get together

Danny...sorry to hear of the decision but I think Moe is right.

I did book the first 2 weeks off in August to head out there, I have friends in Regina and Saskatoon and was going to pit-stop on the way. Now that I have 2 weeks booked off for a bike trip this summer, I need a plan B, I still want to do a big trip this summer.

I already did 4 days in PA last week, 3 days next weekend in NY, 3 days coming up in Northern ON and Quebec. Need cottage and family time and squeeze in some work time. You just can't do it all.

Timing just wasn't right for us this year.
What with 80-K's hip replacement, the journey would have been impossible.
Thanks for the effort Danny.
I'm sure the long range meets will still remain on the table, just a question of who, where, and when.
It's NOT about the destination........ The Journey is what counts. :cool:
and,
If the Sun is at your back, and the wind is your creation... It's a good day. :)
