It is once again time to mark your calendars for our annual funfest known as the Mid West Meet & Greet (AKA ES12). The host motel will be the Motel 62 which has been our base camp for several years. Andy, "Lopeha" has been in contact with the new owners & have negotiated some pretty good rates. They have also been making improvements so our stay there should be outstanding. Andy & I will be utilizing the same basic schedule as previous years in that Andy & I will be cooking burgers on Friday night ($6 each) & we will go to the Forest Hill Restaurant on Saturday (pay as you go). They have an excellent buffet! We will also be having our annual auction on Saturday night so start getting the items together. Andy is working on design ideas for this years t-shirts & pins & will welcome any suggestions.
The rates for this year will be; $69.99 plus tax for 2 queen beds, $74.99 plus tax for the basic king room & $94.99 plus tax for the jacuzzi room. The management & I ask that you make reservations as soon as possible. They are holding 25 rooms for us & I hope to need more!

Contact Info for the Motel 62 is;

Motel 62
3169 East Van Buren
Eureka Springs, AR 72632
479-253-5600

For any that want to camp here's that info;

Kettle Campground

Looking forward to seeing everyone there!

 

EDIT:  Normally Andy would have posted this himself, but as he is OTR pushing a truck down the road from Sunday AM thru Saturday AM ( at times ), I  will put it up.

Andy and I put on the feed bucket in the evenings as mentioned.  Great restaurants in the area also.

John, that phone number is wrong.  It takes you to their other hotel..  Motel 62 is 479-253-5600.  You only needed the other number if you were booking prior to March 1.

I stayed there last night & had a meeting with the manager this morning.  The previous owner had let it get run down & the current folks have been working on it since last Fall.  The room I stayed in was clean & had a fresh coat of paint.  They will continue to make improvements.  Rates will be $69.99 + tax for Double Queen or Single King and $89.99 + tax for the King/Jacuzzi Suites.  They have 10 more rooms blocked out for us & will add more as needed.  If you're planning or even considering going please go ahead & make a reservation.  A 48 hour notice to cancel is required if need be.  Looking forward to seeing y'all there!

Just talked to Motel 62. They only have 2 Queens & 1 King room left. If you haven't made reservations you better hurry! Say you're with the Labor Day Goldwing group to get the discount

I f anyone is ordering and getting free shipping from Cyclemax and coming to ES on Labour day. I could use 1 each of the US and Canadian Flags B4-240 CN and B4-240 US ( 6.00 ea. )  I can pay you for the items at the rally. My flags are worn out and I have a set here to replace them, but I like to keep an extra set on hand.  I don't want to pay shipping of just flags.. Thanks for any help.

I just checked the Wx and it looks like a go for Fri, Sat, Sun

 

I have to get back home on Sunday, not sure what time yet, our son is flying in from Atlanta to see his mom...

 

she got scared yesterday and asked me to have him come home..... and now today, she is saying she wished she didn't....

 

go figure..... but, she is End Stage Renal disease, so it is not IF, but just when.

You guys and gals be safe down there.

 

Really sorry I'm going to miss this. This is the first Labor Day weekend in 11 years that I haven't been in ES.
