2021 Guzzi Get Together, Midway-Utah
« on: May 26, 2021, 01:54:34 PM »
Beginning Thursday September 9th and going through Sunday the 12th.  Planning on the Midway, Utah area again.  Gauging interest to see if I should rent the Campground at the State Park again.  I can pick it up for all 3 nights, Thursday, Friday and Saturday.  Has nice showers and restroom as well as a covered seating area.  The space can accommodate up to about 40 pretty easily.

I will also be reserving some rooms at the Zermatt resort, they will usually give us a pretty decent rate and coming off the - stuff, I believe they will be anxious to have an awesome group of Guzzista!

I realize I am turning this thing on a bit later than I would have preferred, however I will get it done.

This is "not a rally" so there's no entry fee. All are welcome to come and enjoy the beautiful area and roads that surround the area. There are many good eateries, and Saturday night I will cook some brats and host a group dinner. 

You may contact me at: rshadbolt@msn.com  or my cell phone is 801-589-4725 if you have any questions.

I will also be monitoring this site and thread.

Spent a few hours up in Midway yesterday.  I have a spot reserved on Friday night at an Italian restaurant in town, they will have live music and there are motorcycles on the walls of the place.  I think we will fit in well.

I am still waiting for a bid from the resort for accommodations there, however the campground group rate went up 50% to $150.00.  I am still happy to reserve that for those who want to camp.

I came up with some new ride ideas out of the area and I am working on a private tour of some fun stuff. 

I will update this thread as I get more stuff lined up. 

Ciao

Last Guzzi Get Together was great.  Great Campsites and hot showers!

Ian and I might be able to make it again we just have to pick a better place on the 50 to camp after / before Ely.  Cave Lake was bad for us.  I noticed a lot of the "campsites" in Nevada are gravel for trailers and RV's which is really rotten for a tent.

Mark, great to hear from you.  As I recall the last one was your break in run for you. I get the Hwy 50 thing, I enjoy the solitude of crossing it as well as 6 to the South......B U T there ain't a lot out there that's for sure!

It's looking like the Zermatt resort is going to come in, in the neighborhood of where it was last time, so around $139+ taxes and fees. 

I should be able to firm up everything through this week.

I appreciate the replies and the looks.

Hello and thank you for facilitating this upcoming event.  I reside in Utah, own a 2016 Stornello, and will plan to participate.  Midway is one of our favorite locations in Northern Utah.

I want to tie up the campground and am looking for an idea of how many folks are looking to come and whether or not they will be camping or perhaps staying at the resort. 

If you think you might be coming let me know, either on this thread or through my contact information.

Cell: 801-589-4725, email: rshadbolt@msn.com

Thank you,

Roy

Thank you, Sir.  If you need any routing ideas or assistance with getting together with other riders coming from your area, keep checking back. 

Last time we had a pretty good contingent come in from British Columbia, but I think as of this moment that may not be an option.

Dennis and Bisbee, thanks for chiming in.  I am working on grinding the resort just a little bit, so I haven't got the exact number yet.  There's another place across the street, but I do prefer the Zermatt.

Fubar, I remember when you were coming, wasn't there like a tornado or flood or some kind of unforeseen circumstance that derailed you?  Anyway, I will look forward to meeting you and I'm certain we can get your electronics thingies dialed in.  At the last one Dan, Mark and Alan showed me what was up on my Stelvio, having someone show the way gives a lot of confidence when playing with the "black magic" of those ECU's.

Looking forward to catching up with you.

Wow, has it been 3 years already. Sure look forward to attending again this year(camping). Now if I can just find a bike to ride there. Sold my Stelvio recently and am shopping around for a replacement. I still have an Yamaha XT250, but might have a bit of trouble keeping up on the group rides. :wink:

2013 Stelvio NTX - Sold

Here's a thread bump and an update.  The group site has been booked by another group for that Friday night. I am in the process of finding out how many people we can put into an individual site, and if there are a specific number of them I can either reserve in advance or something so they can be together. 

I apologize, when I checked the campground a while ago, all of the dates were available for the group site.  It will be more like the KOA in Ouray, with individual sites. I will find out if maybe we can get 3 or 4 to a site, I would have to think, certainly 2 could fit for sure. 

Please don't hesitate to reach out to me if you have any questions.

Roy

Ok, I have some clarification on the camping.  The Oak Hollow loop is tent camping, each site has tent pad, table and fire pit.  I think if everyone books Oak Hollow sites 88-96 that would be a good area, near the bathroom and showers.  I will get a link so you can get to it pretty quickly.

Here is a link for the individual campsites. We are in the Pine Creek Campground, Oak Hollow Loop. 

If you will book the sites from approx. 88-96 that will get everyone in the same general area.  Site 94 is a double site and can accommodate up to 4 tents pretty easily.

I would suggest that you buddy up with someone, the rate is $35 per night, and an extra vehicle in $8 per night. I asked them if we had to pay the extra fee and they would not waive it.

Mike, you had talked about wanting to bring your truck and camp. If you use the Mahogany loop, sites 50-53 or 79-81 that will get you pretty close to everyone.

I will plan on hosting dinner Saturday night, and will get the particulars figured out for that.

Great Mike, thanks for letting me know. 

JJ!  Bring the crew up and enjoy a little bit cooler weather.  The ride over Jacob's Lake on the way up is beautiful and Highway 89 from Kanab to Richfield is a pretty nice stretch of road.  Don't forget the Lemoncello!
