:lol: :lol: As I set here on this cold 15 degree snowy day It feels good to think of warmer days ahead. We will have the Spring Rendezvous at the Holiday Hotel in Eureka Springs, Ar. again this year. This has turned out to be a very good location for us. It is a nice modern Hotel with a very good Hot breakfast, and they like us, and give us a very good rate on the room's. The restaurant next door has a very good buffet for our Wed. night meal.

Most people show up Tuesday afternoon and shoot the bull on the parking lot. Then go out in small groups that eve.
On Wed. we go out in small group's and ride the great roads in that area. Be back that night for supper next door at 6pm. We will have award's ans 50/50 drawing after supper at the Hotel.

Make your reservation's at

Holiday Hotel
3010 E. Van Buren
Eureka Springs, Ar.
Tell them you are with the ROMEO. they will put us together, and give us a discount.
See you there.
Bucky :D :D

:D Well I just called Katrina at the Holiday Hotel in Eureka Springs Arkansas. She is very happy with the response from the ROMEO'S. We have booked 44 rooms so far. Looks like we are going to have a very good turn out. I also checked with the Forrest Hill restaurant. They are preparing a very good choice of food's for our Wed night meal.
All the garage art awards are made and ready to be presented to some very deserving ROMEO'S.
If a couple ROMEO'S would stop by the local M.C. shop and pick up a few Tshirts and Caps give away as door prizes, it would be very appreciated.
Looking forward to seeing all of you in Eureka Springs. Make your res.
See ya
Bucky :lol: :lol:

Even with the threat of wet weather for Tuesday night and Wednesday there were a record number of Romeos in attendance this year. A good dinner at Sparky's in Eureka Springs and catching up with other groups over adult beverages later. The rain came in early Wednesday morning and didn't let up till late in the day, so some sat in the lobby having in depth conversations, some of us rode the trolley into town for window and real shopping a few even got out for a short wet "I can't take it anymore!" ride. The motel provided some snacks and one of the cooks, Maria, even made from scratch, hot rolls for the enjoyment of many. Forrest Hill Restaurant next to the motel provided us with a good salad and buffet bar for dinner. The meeting had to be moved to the lobby, as we had 58 register for a total of 67 attending, we didn't fit in the conference room! The meeting opened with a remembrance of those who had passed recently and those who are ill at this time. The motel clerk was such a good sport, letting us rearrange the lobby and just take over. Thanks to Mick for keeping us on track as much as possible as MC and Bucky for putting on this awesome event and making the trophies. Thanks also need to go out to all the coordinators who week after week put in the time necessary to keep us going strong.
