Unless you've been dead or hiding under a rock or deep in a cave or otherwise cutoff from the interwebs, the vote at SW VIII went to Deadwood, South Dakota. The organizers for SW IX will be Shrug and Smarty. They will appoint a Texas sized blue ribbon committee to oversee the development and organization of SW IX.

The other proposals/bids were Chadron Nebraska by Raymond Garvin and the Catskills of New York by Jim Barnett. These other locations also had their benefits with great presentations as well.

It takes a herculian volunteer effort to make this happen every year with many unpaid volunteer man hours and long distance phone bills that add up to make this event spectacular for all that attend. Be patient, Rome was not built in a day and they will make their announcement for hotel accomodations when all i's have been dotted and t's have been crossed. It won't be instant and automatic.

Since SW X will be held in Gettysburg, PA, the presentations at SW IX will be for SW XI, confused, don't be. All presentations will now be made for 2 years hence from the current SW. Because this group of attendees is growing almost every year, more time will be needed by the organizing committee each year hence.

Got a great location in mind to host a future Shark Week, throw you hat into the ring, come to SW to present it or send a person with your presentation to deliver it in person. Frankly it is this author's opinion that in order to host a Shark Week you really do need to attend at least one Shark Week to see what it is really all about, how it is organized and run and to see what happens in the background to make it all work.

Once you have hosted a Shark Week you become a member of a very exclusive club, we meet regularly in a seedy divebar at an online bowling alley, bowl perfect Turkeys and swill Fireball till the early hours of the morning.



Stay tuned

But since that is almost a year away and you might change your bike inventory so many times by then you might have to call it Indian/ Triumph / Bugatti week...

.....he is tall and handsome
How do you know how tall he is? I heard you don't get any higher up then the waist...

Is it really an exclusive club......or is it a reclusive club. Hosting certainly takes a lot out of those that volunteer and step up. But man, is it rewarding. I had a busy, but enjoyable time this year.

..... and you could start a new SW activity ..... a day long scavenger hunt for dead bodies ..... hopefully a well crafted selfie will be proof enough that we found the bodies and we aren't tasked with strapping them across the luggage rack to bring them back to the host hotel to be counted. I'm too old for all that heavy lifting.

Hey, hey hey! No one "keeps" me on a leash ..... I actually prefer a little dominance action now and then. Just sayin'.

Besides that, Cuzn' Eddie's OL is damn hot in her leather bra and chaps. I wouldn't mind gettin' in line behind Nordic ......

.

I copied this from the “ general chat” forum”, ........ I think? Probably couldn’t find again if I had to.
Anyway, looks like it will be the week following Sturgis.

“Guys, just hang in there a little longer and all the details will be announced. Special rates for Thursday thru Sunday of Rally week, and great rates of $144 a night starting Sunday, August 11th thru Friday August 16th of Sharkweek IX and possibly even the same rate on the Saturday August the 10th. Shrug, Ron, or myself will be giving out the rest of the details soon. The Sharkweek IX will be held with everyone at the same complex all connected unless over 300 rooms are booked. Stay tuned.”
