    Default When and where for the 2017 MAM?

    I know it is a little soon, but normally by now someone has allready started a post. But when and where will the 2017 MAM be? We have been doing the Maggie Valley area about twice a year, for the past 8 years. Although I believe it has some of the best riding roads in the US, we are thinking about expanding our little vacation towards the north. What better way to do it than to attend the MAM. Especially since I have another nine in my stable.

    It is definitely in Staunton, VA. I believe the dates will be June 21st - 24th, but double check with Matt (FuturR). Whichever week it is, I will be pulling in on Monday to get some extra riding in!

    Yea, we normally go on a Wednesday and return home on Sunday. It normally starts the week after fathers day. I have visited 2 other MAM's, but never on my bike. It will be nice to stay for a while and hang out with some of the faces that I don't get to see. My only issue is that I have been going to the pre-meet since either 2008 or 2009 and seeing those guys. I hope they are able to make the meet in Va.

    Lol ya, west amarican meet?

    Maybe yellowstone is not west enough, just need to hear from our quiet west riders for some input. 60ratrod was hinting for oregan coast or central oregan, RevRon pointed out Yellowstone earlier this year.

    Hmmm

    Hi, I was wondering if you/someone could add some plans onto the Forum calander. If you/Poseidon will be going earlier that may work for some who have diffrent scheduals.
    Would be nice to put the MAM on there too.
    Vegas meet dates will go up soon, and I hear from a rider in Kelowna he may put one up for Yellowstone

    Im waiting as well, I have never been, I don't know if people find thier own place or if a hotel reserves for the group at a special rate?

    For Vegas, I'm waiting to see if they can find the lost thread, as we were in the beginning stage to find a date then to hunt for a host hotel or not. Maybe to make Meet points throughout a 7 day period where there would be rides, gulfing and social gatherings, and everyone could hunt down thier own accomidations. This may give variety and more places to explore in Vegas? Still things are up in the air and everyone's imagination can come to the table with ideas. Maybe even a Poker Run!

    I would be happy to add it to the calendar, but I need to wait until FuturR officially announces the dates.

    Last I heard, it is going to be the same hotel as 2016. That is always subject to change until FuturR makes the "official 2017 MAM thread" tho.

    Last year we stayed at the Sleep Inn in Staunton. Picking the hotel is more about location and the parking lot than anything. The hotel was nice. It has been recently updated. Ultimately, you are only in your room long enough to sleep and shower. The meet is all about riding and socializing with other 9 riders.

    If if you search for the "Official 2016 MAM" thread. There are pictures of the hotel.

    Normally it is Wednesday thru Sunday, but there have been enough of us showing up on Monday and spending the week that we are making it a week for block time at the hotel. Those that can't make it for the entire week can come in on whichever date works for you. Matt will be making the official announcement with all the details soon.
