Personally, I like the idea of the 5th thru the 12th.
Dan
I'm waiting on a response from cabin management, if that weekend is available I'm thinking around those dates too.

They would also be convenient for anyone needing to take time off from work to attend both the Ottawa and the Amish Rally's.

I'll keep everyone updated as soon as I hear back.

Good News.

I just got off the phone with Cabin Management (Jay) and after some back and forth, the family that had reserved the cabin for the days we wanted have moved their reservation to accommodate us.
The family took the only other available dates, those dates were less than optimal, they fell during the Little League World Series and the return of students to the area.

Mark your calendars and lock in those vacation days if you need to.

The 2020 Amish Rally will begin mid to late afternoon on Thursday August 13th, and wrap up by late afternoon on August 18th. (We can extend an extra day if anyone wants, as the new tenants will be arriving on the morning of Aug. 20th.)

In speaking with cabin management, I realized that the 2021 Rally will be the 20th anniversary of the Amish. Wow, time does fly. I have taken the liberty of reserving the week before Little League 2021, August 13 to August 19, 2021 for the group, as slots are already getting reserved almost 2 years out. Cabin is getting very popular.

Good to hear that you are feeling better, Dave. I believe the "X"s on the first post
indicate the dates of the infamous Ottawa Misfits Rally not the Amish Rally. It's so one can attend both rallies, if desired.

Hi Paul. That's good to know. I've been attending almost every one of Keith's breakfasts for a couple years now. I figure if he keeps inviting me in spirit, then I'll keep attending in spirit....not spirits though... Eh Keith!! Sorry if my support of your breakfasts by proxy throws off your attendance calculations. 🙂

Dave, am glad to hear that your doing better, very glad. I was hoping you weren't heading for an early departure.if you or others have wmws email, send it along.

Steve, thanks for doing the reserve 2 yrs ahead, wise move. As we have talked we should likely talk over how long to keep this running....and/or hope to inject new blood.

Like you, it's too far in the future for me to committ, but one of these ,I feeling like I should take my turn opening and closing the door. Actually I would love to supply the breakfast goodies for a year or two.

Rich, how is that knee (s) and health coming along?

The thing about the rally site is though not optimum sleeping arrangements or most conducive to partying , it's cheap and close to some of the better riding roads in pa.


If another or better place could be found in a new area, would it be better??

I have heard several of the local retailers wonder what happened to the $2 bills. Lol

Actually we have a local grocery store who's owner is as colorful as Dave. He rents part of his building to a bank and makes sure he circulates $2 bills to customers as they are willing to receive them

I love the recognition!!! I hope $2 bills make a big comeback. I was disappointed to learn last year the post office took out the cash drawers that had a spot for the two dollar bills. :-(

I am back riding and am no longer dizzy, but I still have a couple of issues to deal with. It is hell getting old!!!

I have had an apprentice now for over a year and I hope to turn over the repair business of CXs and GLs to him in the near future. The only problem is he has a full time job and doesn't have the free time that I do. He is better than average on these bikes and listens well to the tips I have given him. Unfortunately for me, since I am older than his dad, he considers me a grandfather figure. (he-he) I am planning on being at the Amish next summer, God willing.

Keith, I have been to those breakfasts just like Tony has!!! I just don't get many miles on the bike doing it. If the Amish is the week after your rally this year I will try to make it your rally again like a few years back.

If we want to get more or newer attendees, this could be cross posted in general and regional traveling friends sections.

I'll do that.

Ron, I was shocked when I learned the results of the last election had placed the Dems in charge of the state government. After all the lies, craziness, and deceit perpetrated by the Dummycrats over the last 3 years - how could reasonable people vote that way? then I realized that the liberals owned the largest voting block in the state...Alexandria & the surrounds. I told my wife that there would be infringements of the constitutional rights of Virginians before the end of 2019, starting with the 2nd Amendment. Sadly, I was right. We are going to have a constant battle in the Commonwealth until the next round of elections. I hope that by that time even the liberals who voted them in will be ready to vote them out. They are going to try everything they can to turn Virginia into a socialist state.
