Oktoberfest Weekend, Sept 16th-18th, in the German Catskills

Post by deilenberger »


Our local club has run an event for the past 4 years that coincided with the Hunter Mountain "Colors in the Catskills".. (October)

Due to the consistently miserable weather we've experienced that weekend, and the diminishing interest in CinC (it was down to almost no motorcycle vendors last year - just MAX-BMW), plus the availability of a weekend in September, we decided to move our event back a few weeks and invite other clubs from the area.

The NJSBMWR makes nothing from the event. There are (at the moment, but that could change) no door prizes. What there is - is comfortable lodging, 6 fabulous meals, and a German Beer-Hall with real German/Austrian bands on Friday and Saturday night, plus a wide variety of great German beer on tap.

We hold it at the Crystal-Brook Resort, Round Top, NY. It's the weekend of September 16th-18th. Arrive for dinner Friday night, leave after lunch on Sunday. Less then 2 hours from NYC, not that far from Albany, Boston, it provides a great venue and great riding. It has been quite popular with couples. We usually plan a ride on Saturday to Motorcyclepedia - about a 1 hour ride away.

We'd like to welcome anyone from the BMW community to join us. NJSBMWR handles no money - that's between you and the resort. For more info please see: http://www.njsbmwr.org/octoberfest2016.html
