Shark Week IV - April Update

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Wow, it seems like it was only 3-4 months ago that we were a full year away from the next Shark Week and now we're down to just 4 months before our next gathering! That's right, only 128 days til we're gathered at the T&C renewing old acquaintences and making new ones.

As of today, we have 246 riders on 170 Road Glides that are registered to attend, and a few more members are signing up each week. We currently have folks coming from 38 states and 3 Canadian Provinces. Some thought we were nuts when we predicted more than a year ago that we would have 200 bikes show up for this event ... we're getting very close!

If you haven't registered here on this site with Tracy B, or haven't reserved a room at the Royalty Inn, I strongly suggest you do so ASAP.

Also, the whale watch boat tour out of Portland, Maine on that Wednesday is more roughly 2/3 sold out, so call the Oddessy and purchase your tickets now if you plan to attend that function.

Everything seems to be coming together well with most all activities planned and set in stone. All we need now is some warm weather to melt off the snow and ice so that we can finalize the day ride routes by riding them. GMAN is chomping at the bit to start getting his mile markers and coordinates down on paper.

If anyone has a prize to donate for the final night's raffle (or knows someone who wants to get involved) please contact Tracy B.

We also finalized our traditional event with a local Harley dealer this week, we just need to tie up some loose ends before announcing where and when.

We'll be posting a "Help Wanted" thread in about a week for anyone who is would like to help by being a Road Captain or Tail-Gunner for one or more of our guided day trips, or maybe you'd just like to donate a couple hours of your time helping with registration on Sunday/Monday or one of the many other little tasks that need to be done during the week.


The Insane in Maine (and NH) Road Glide Tour - be there, or always wish you were!

If you boys can't stop bickering back there, we're not stoppin' at McDonalds for lunch!" - heard that more than a few times growing up!

Today, the parents are more apt to say, "If you can't be good back there, I'll take away your (pick one - cell phone or Game Boy or IPAD or portable DVD player) for the rest of the day!"

To think that we had to amuse ourselves with counting VW 'bugs' or seeing how many different states' license plates we could count.
