2009 New Brunswick rally

Post by Bert on Tue Sep 23, 2008 6:09 pm

The date for the rally with the Quebec riders had been set for July 30, 31 and August 1st 2009.
Please put these dates on your calendar.
again, I am trying to get NS riders to participate. Unless I get a better turn out than the last 2 years, I will stop organizing this rally.

The Quebec organizer is now booking up the Grand falls cottage for July 30 and 31.
It would be nice to get some New Brunswick people too.

Bert,
the 30th is a thursday, so probably you mean the 31st of July and 1 and 2 of August right?

Thanks Piet.

Yes you are right..... July 31, Aug 1 & 2
The Monday is holiday in NS but not in Quebec. If enough people from NS are committing, I could see about keeping the cottage for the Sunday night. A night is $200 + taxes for the first 20 people then $5 per extra person.

I plan to attend if life doesn't intervene. Having a night to ourselves sounds great. I vote yes.

Bert:

What is the normal flow for this trip. Do people drive up on Friday arriving in the afternoon or go up Thurs.? Do we go together or make our own groups? Do we take the Rogers road or the Trans Canada? etc.

Last year, 3 of us left Halifax together and we met other people at the rally site. People were on vacation or at the National and came to the rally on their way back to Halifax.
The previous year we were 6 to travel together.
Last year, we took a mix of highway and secondary roads.
I normally leave early Friday morning expecting to arrive at around 4pm in Grand Fall.

I'm new to the group so I have some questions. What is the actual name of the cottage in Grand Falls? Do we book as individuals or does the association do this?

The cottage is at exit 69 on the trans Canada Highway.
If I recall correctly the name is "Le paradis de la petite montagne"
The cottage is already reserved and you have to pay your share to one of the organizers. The cost is about $15 (+ taxes even if the government is not invited).
I will dig up my previous maps and post it again.

Some people are using the thread of last year rally and it may be confusing for others. Here is the information about the 2009 edition.
The Quebec-NS meeting is planned for July 24,25,26.
I will be leaving on the Friday morning(24) and it would be interesting to know who is going and maybe ride together.
Some people will leaving the Friday evening or Saturday morning.
The location of the cottage/camping is about 10kms after Grand Falls. Take exit 69 on the Trans Canada Highway. Its about 5 or 6 kms from the highway and well indicated.
If you sleep at the cottage, the cost is about $15-$16 a night.
We are planning for a ride on Saturday for people arriving on Friday.
Halifax-Grand Falls is about 700kms by the Highway.
Here is the Web site for the campground: http://www.paradis.nb.ca/

Saw the clan last evening at Grand Falls...a good turnout and the weather seemed to be heading in the right direction when we departed mid-day today for Nouvelle Ecosse.

Thanks all!
