2013 Beakster Bash, May 16-19, Marietta, OH

Post by Biff's R »

Teaser gone. Here is the deal.
Marietta, OH May 16-19, 2013.

Lodging will be at the Lafayette Hotel site of the 2006 Bash(Bash 3 I believe)
Lafayette Hotel
101 Front St.
Marietta, OH 45750
p:(740) 373-5522
f: (740) 373-4684
http://www.lafayettehotel.com

I set up a block of 15 rooms. Several Cabin Rooms, Twins, and Queens. When calling to Reserve a room use the Group Name "R1150R", but you need to do it by phone. There are other styles of rooms available if you want depending upon their availability.

Room Rates:
Cabin $53.00/night
Twins $73.00/night
Queen $73.00/night
Queen Parlor $83.00/night
RV King $83.00/night
King Parlor $83.00/night
RV King Parlor $93.00/night
King Parlor w/ Balcony $103.00/night

There are great roads on both sides of the Ohio River. Almost too many good ones to list. There are several restaurants and bars within walking distance of the hotel for evening entertainment, or you can walk across the alley and sit on the park bench and watch the boats going up and down the Ohio River.

Ride the River!

Will there be a Memorial CamFarm tee shirt available?

Maybe with "The more I learn the less I know." on the back, with a picture of a hand on a knee, swinger style.

I didn't go to that last Marietta Bash but that's what I remember from it.

The Uly would be great. If you got balls you could do some Wayne National Forest Roads.

We have a co-worker retiring in May so my boss is holding back approving time then.
They never hire replacements ahead of time idiots.
Gotta call the union! :badgrin:

No promises (and I wish I had a wingman to come that far), but it could happen.

What's the itinerary?

tiPirate - Bash itineraries are somewhat loose but go something like this:

1-early arrivals Thursday evening kick tires in the parking lot, eat out and drink a couple or three adult beverages.
2- day Friday - ride and explore local roads and sights in small groups (ranging from 1-6; they tend to form themselves in the parking lot after breakfast.)
3- evening Friday - greet new arrivals and repeat item 1!
4- day Saturday - repeat item 2!
5- evening Saturday usually involves a group meal, door prizes and a repeat of item 1.
6- Sunday morning - ride home.

Either the Bash master or others familar with the area will provide some input or sugggestions for ride routes. In this case, that is the same person. Yes, Biff, that's you!

When we did Marietta before, I wasn't sure how much good riding there would be in Ohio but was pleasantly surprised at the good riding in the area. In this case, we also have a place to eat down the block that also happens to be a brewery!

Hope you can make it. Its a good time.

Sounds like a hoot and a great way to put some names to faces. 19 interstate hours one way though...

I will upload some ride sheets, etc over the holidays. Work has been nuts, with the big push to get stuff poured before the weather really sucks.
