I'm not sure what you mean. :) Would you like for me to bring some information about my site in case squids show up to ride? I don't want them on my site. :D I can bring some business cards with the site's address on it for the non-squids though...

i didnt say that right....

it should have said "bring some stuff along if you want to promote your products per your web page. you got some neat things on the page ....we will have some riders at the ride in that should want to know

you do what you want on promo/bus cards, whatever. the point is i welcome you to bring stuff or cards along for attendees

H O T E L
Clarion Hotel www.clarioncarlisle.com Call 800-692-7315 to book your reservation. Ask for “Motorcycle Fall Foliage Ride In” Group Rates to get the special $69.95 double occupancy.

The normal Clarion rates are $90+ and these get bumped up to $120+ for the Carlisle car shows so our group rate of $69.95 was the best I could do….and this Clarion is no Super 8….count on that. VIP: Limited rooms, so please reserve early to preserve this low rate and your discount. You can cancel with 24 hours notice so there is no risk.

The Clarion features: indoor pool, pool tables, bar and great food. See this link for more details www.clarioncarlisle.com Our rooms will be at the end of one of the wings. The Clarion does offer cotts at an extra cost. We will have reserved parking for the bikes.

For those that want to split a room, post it on this line, and also tell the Clarion when you make your reservation that you want to split a room so they can hook you up with others wanting the same thing

Help or problems during your reservation process: Ask for Doris Nugent at x183

Statements of the Obvious: No bikes in the rooms (this happened at a Goldwing rally there), don’t use new towels in the rooms to clean your bike (they will supply old cut up towels for this), no burnouts/revving of engines or wheelies at the hotel…….basically, save all your fun for the rides.
