July 17th thru 19th 2012
Comfort Inn & Suites Riverview
902 Mississippi View Court, Le Claire, IA, US, 52753

http://www.comfortinn.com/hotel-le_claire-iowa-IA062?sid=xJohti.qjmjOgJLc.4&sarea=&sname=le+claire&sstate=IA&scountry=US&sradius=&slat=41.59731&slon=-90.34362&schain=CI&exp=&scity=&sort=&type=&map=n&nadult=1&nchild=0&city_code=VQV&sstate_country=IAUS

Phone: (563) 289-4747
Fax: (563) 289-5535

Ask for Ed (SHE's the GM) or Diane

89.00 for a Standard Room
99.00 for a Business Room
119.00 for Whilpool Bathtub room. (great after a day of riding.)

I have reserved 30 of the 54 rooms, but we add more rooms, hopefully the rest, when we have those commited, so if you plan on attending, get your reservations soon, please.

FYI: I plan on doing a Ride to JP Cycles Tuesday Morning, and head to Poopies for dinner that night. Again, tenative, as I have not talked to either one.

These prices are not good with any other offer, and are good if you want to come in a day or so early, or stay an extra day. There is a River View on one side of the hotel, the other side will over look the parking lot with your bike in it. Tentatively this will also give you a view of the tent/picnic tables.

I added a poll for you. I left it simple, yes or no, so people can say when they know for sure. A maybe would just clutter things up.

I for one, am planning on making it. I have set aside those days, and as of right now will be attending shark week 2012.

I've got the week pencil'd in on my calander, and I would love to be able to say "yes I will be there, I'll take a room", but we're 335 days ahead of the game here, which I think this is probably a bit early for myself and others to be able to make that commitment.

I do appreciate the work that's being put forth so far and I will be watching and offering any support I can give.

Thanks for the Poll Chansaw. I know this is early, and the cutoff for the rooms is far off. Just wanted people to be able to schedule their vacation and budget the rooms, before the last minute. Dates are established, Rooms are established, The rest is riding RG's with each other. That's Simple.

i live about 45 miles from leclair,so i think i will sleep in my own bed

I'm just barely 100mi out, but I suspect that a large portion of the more "interesting" happenings go on after most normal people are in bed, or at least after dark. I don't much care for riding alone after dark through the Iowa DNR's wildlife refuge, so if I'm coming I'll be staying close by.

So that's Tuesday Wednesday and Thursday?
Those are odd days, but I am learning Shark owners are kind of odd anyway.:D:D
It was discussed in previous threads and was decided that it was the best way to help those coming from longer distances; i.e.: 1500-2000miles+.
That way they can leave on Saturday, ride 3 or 4 days at 500 miles(or more) days and make it back home without blowing 2 weeks vacations.
I'm happy with this set up. I look forward to SWII:D

Is there a code or something that will allow us to make reservations on line with those rates. They don't show up in the web site.

Like Dreamrider said, its like that so people that have to ride from far, only have to take 1 week off work. And those of us who aren't that far away, have Friday to deal with the hang over, and Saturday for backup ;)

Its a small world, Shark week makes it smaller!!

So I am riding from Port Byron, IL, to Mineral Wells, WV to get my wife and ride home with her. A simple 600 miles, but better if you have someone to ride with. About 30 miles before Columbus OH, I look in my rear view, and I see another RG. I slow down and wait, cause Black Bikes are fast, and along side comes Mark from WI. The guy at shark week on the Merlot Sunglow RGU. I looked at him and said Roadeglide.org, and we both started laughing.

Small world.

Just made my reservations - As Tracy said earlier you do have to call and I did confuse the young lady that took them and she was going to have Ed or Diane call me back on Monday -- She called me about 10 minutes later saying she had it figured out and proceded with the reservation. I am in -- I believe the young ladies name was Cory (sp) - just got the e-mail confirmation. See ya all next summer.
