Drifter Rendezvous in the SOO 2019
« on: February 13, 2018, 20:55:33 PM »
     Plans are now in the works to have the second Canadian Drifter Rendezvous, The hosts will be Owen and Tanya Forde. This Rendezvous will be in the Soo (Sault St. Marie) area; base is right now going to be in Thessalon Ontario. Just an hour from the Canadian US border crossing.
     Home Base or the Dog Pound is tentatively at the Carolyn Beach Inn & Restaurant. So plan on this event and come join us for the 20th anniversary of the Drifter motorcycle.
     The dates are July 19th – July 22 2019, so come join us for some awesome riding in the North Country and along the shores of Lake Huron. More info to follow as we update the info.

 We drive on the correct side of the roadway, and during the summer we do not need to use dog sleds. jmbo it is only a short hop for you, some 486 miles a nice day ride. Also if you ride along the lake it is a super ride, I did that route on my way to Sparta, oh Sparta that is in Cheese Country, that is in Wisconsin.........

 ;) Pilgrim it is only a short 934.56782 miles for you if you ride on through or as I have added a second map for you, you could ride to Richwood and tag up with GreenBarn and trailer with him the rest of the way, I know you will use your advanced age as a reason you can not ride more than about 5 hours a day. So I have added a map to Richwood and it is only 410.73758 miles so a mere 6 hour ride for you and then have a good night sleep and a wonderful meal prepared by the ever lovely Mrs GreenBarn....... they might even let you sleep in the main house and not in the barn......

(before Ratman can jump in here....)
Yea, Uncle Rolly, but "Rendesvous in the Soo" sounded so much BETTER than "Rendesvous at Thes".....     Geez, some people are so picky, LOL..... :D ;D

  Uncle Rolly is Aunt Tracy around you right now? Have her give you your meds for your OCD. Please. The Forde's who are going to host the event live in Thessalon and they wanted or want to host the event there, but if it gets to large, or they need more options then it is the Soo. Second reason for calling it Rendezvous in the Soo is because how many people ever heard of Thessalon, let alone know how to pronounce the name correctly. Then as GreenBarn stated Rendezvous in the Soo sounds so much better........oh do you need a map also or is Aunt Tracy going to ride with you and be your GPS?
