 Post subject: 2014 Big Ruckus Meeting Cancelled Due to Lack of Interest
PostPosted: Sat Nov 23, 2013 12:22 pm 
This Big Ruckus Meeting Has Been Cancelled


Good Afternoon -

I have details concerning the 2014 Honda Big Ruckus
meeting, that we plan to hold near the AMA Vintage
Motorcycle Days that are held at the Mid Ohio Race Course
July 11 - 13, 2014.

The Big Ruckus meeting will be held on Thursday, July 10 around
4 pm - 8 pm so attendees can still visit the 1,000 vendor
booths and activities at the Mid Ohio opening day on Friday, July 11.

http://www.americanmotorcyclist.com/eve ... rcycledays


The actual 2014 Big Ruckus meeting will be held at -

Country Inn and Suites - Mansified, Ohio. Which is about
15 minutes from the gates of the 2014 AMA Vintage Days.
The address of the hotel is 2069 Walker Lake Road,
Mansfield, Ohio 44906 Phone 419 747 2227

http://www.tripadvisor.com/ShowUserRevi ... 143756001- Country_Inn_Suites_Mansfield-Mansfield_Ohio.html

I called the hotel to reserve the BR meeting room and
it is now reserved in the BR Meeting name for Thursday.

I was informed that there are a few guest rooms still available at the hotel.
Remember our meeting is on Thursday, July 10, 2014 if you wish to
stay overnight. Call the hotel NOW for best prices and room selection
at 419 747 2227.

An announcement about the meeting will appear in magazines
shortly which is a free service.

We are working on having a guest speaker for the meeting
along with a light meal and soft drinks.

Thanks guys.

Contact me if you have any questions.

Thanks for the note and questions Paul.

The meeting is absolutely free for the BR owners.
The hotel is giving us the use of the meeting room and
the food/drink will be complimentary also.

They even have a few rooms still available for the
main event at the Mid Ohio site that weekend.

I will know about the guest speaker next
week. Since there are 1,000+ exhibit booths
and hundreds of companies at the Mid Ohio Vintage
Days, I think I can get an interesting speaker to spend
some time with us since they are going to be on site
anyway.

Any other questions, please let me know.

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone!

 Post subject: Notice - Date change for 2014 AMA Mid Ohio Meeting
PostPosted: Tue Dec 17, 2013 3:52 pm 
Good Evening -

I just received notice that the AMA is moving their 2014
Mid Ohio Vintage Motorcycle Days to a week earlier
on July 11 - 13. Here is their message.

Notice - AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days 2014 will be held
July 11-13, one week earlier than previously announced. The new dates
prevent a conflict with another event held in Wauseon, Ohio.

Since our 2014 Big Ruckus meeting was scheduled for
July 17, to correspond to the AMA original date .... we
will move our meeting one week earler to July 10, Thursday
at the same times and location - 4 pm at the Country Inn & Suites
in Mansfield, Ohio Phone 419 747 2227 - cx_mans@countryinns.com.

I am sorry for the change of date but at least AMA gave us plenty
of notice for our meeting. I am going to contact the magazines that
are going to run our meeting announcement to ask if they can change
the date.

AMA Vintage Dirt Track National Championship Series kicks off

December 31, 2013

PICKERINGTON, Ohio -- Racers of classic dirt-track racing motorcycles will begin their hunt for 2014 titles on March 8 in Savannah, Ga., when the AMA Vintage Dirt Track National Championship kicks off with its first of 13 rounds.

"Motorcycle dirt-track racing is one of motorsports' great historic disciplines, and the AMA is honored to support the vibrant community of vintage dirt trackers with national championship recognition," said AMA Track Racing Manager Ken Saillant. "The AMA has a rich history in the sport, dating to the original factory Class-A racing in the 1920s and the Class-C production-based format that continues today. The motorcycles that helped write that history are amazing machines, and it's thrilling to see many of them still on the track, competing for AMA national No. 1 plates."

The AMA Vintage Dirt Track National Championship Series recognizes national champions in period-correct classes that reflect the storied history of AMA dirt-track competition. Class winners are honored at the annual AMA Championship Banquet, which recognizes national champions in all amateur racing disciplines.

The July 2014 Mid Ohio Vintage Days in Ohio
will host one of the series races -

Thanks Ozark.

In a few weeks I am going to ask folks, on the BR site,
to let me know if they are coming ..... so I can plan the
food order.

It was already on the bucket list of places to be this year. Meeting up with some Ruckus riders at the summers largest motorcycle swap meet would be iceing on the cake.
I haven't attend the other Big Ruckus events held on the east coast as they are just a bit to far away to make it a worth while weekend event.
Hopefully others will see this a great place to meetup. :popcorn:

Good Afternoon -

A BR member/owner brought up a good point this
morning.

If you call the Country Inn and Suites, in Mansfield
Ohio where the BR meeting will be held this July, there
is no block of rooms being held under the Big Ruckus
name. Your reservations will be made in your own name.

Also, we will be meeting in the dining area, off of
the hotels lobby. Other groups have met there in the past
because it has comfortable seating and we can
close the double doors to the lobby. Because it is
their breakfast area, we also have space to set up the
food items on the counters.

Today, February 12 @ 1:30 pm I checked with the
hotel and they still have rooms available. The desk
person told me they will sell out soon ..... due to that
time period being the AMA Mid Ohio Vintage days.

So you still have a chance to stay at the hotel where
the BR meeting will be held and you are only 15 minutes
from the front gates of the giant Vintage Motorcycle Days event.

Thanks - Roger rsmith481@yahoo.com

Country Inn and Suites - Mansfied, Ohio 2069 Walker
Lake Road, Mansfield, Ohio 44906 Phone 419 747 2227.

Good morning -

The BR meeting at Mid Ohio Vintage Motorcycle Days is now
listed on motorcycle calendar of events in several locations.

The website operator for the Northeast Wheels Events (below) contacted
me last week double checking the date and times.

I have also personally invited noted BR experts who have
posted hundreds of times in the past on this forum to attend
this National meeting. These invitations were made by
phone and written message ... requesting their presence.

Good Afternoon -

This morning UPS delivered two boxes from Yuasa batteries
for the BR meeting in July.

Inside the boxes were Yuasa giveaway items including
decals, Yuasa battery accessories for the meeting attendees,
and a Yuasa banner to hang on the main wall.

I called and thanked Yuasa for their kind consideration.

We continue seeking guest speakers with one opening
left (three total).

Please let me know if you have any questions -

Hi Tim,

I just called JM and they were closed
but the recording says they are on
Mountain time.

I will call again Monday to see if they
would at least be interested in attending
or/and sending some info on all their
audion products.

Tim and all -

I spoke with JM corporation at 11:45 am today - Monday.

They are based in Tucson, AZ and will not be able to make
the 3,400 mile round trip this year.

But, they are going to send literature about their products
for our BR meeting attendees to have.
