The annual Eastern Shore Weekend in Easton, MD is on the Meetup calendar for May 5 - 7. You can get full details about the event here. As has been the case every year there are rides planned for Friday afternoon, Saturday and Sunday. At this point there are 18 members signed up. I have 10 rooms booked at the hotel at a special rate of $134.10 per night. If you've already RSVPed to the event be sure to make your room reservation. If we need more than 10 rooms I can likely add more. The cutoff date to reserve at this rate is April 5. After that date I can't promise rooms will be available.
On the Saturday ride we've traditionally stopped at Old Salty's on Hooper's Island for our lunch break. I've had several conversations with the owner and it became clear that they would not be able to accomodate us as a group, so I'm looking for alternatives. I've reached out to the Hooper's Island Volunteer Fire Company to see if they would be willing to host a rest stop. It will be helpful for me to have a good idea of the number of riders and guests coming so I can give the fire company an idea of how many to expect. So, if you are considering coming to the weeeknd I'd like to encourage you to RSVP sooner rather than later. I'll have more information about the rest stop once the fire company has their meeting March 1.
I also have a request for someone willing to be the point person for the Friday afternoon rides. There are two routes available so I'd need two people. I will not get to Easton in time for the 2:00pm scheduled start, so if you are willing to act as a host for one of the Friday rides please let me know (firstname.lastname@example.org).
I'll look forward to seeing you at Easton for this really great LWA event.
