Another conference, anyone?

#1 Unread post by MZ33 » Tue Feb 02, 2010 11:21 am

Canada’s inaugural International Women Riders Congress and Festival (IWCF) will take place at Deerhurst Resort in Huntsville, Ontario, August 11 to 15, 2010, thanks to the efforts of the Women Riders’ Council of the Motorcyclists Confederation of Canada (MCC).
Rest of the story: http://motorcycling.ca/mcc/iwcf/?lang=en You just gotta scroll down a ways to actually get to the article.

I'm thinking about going . . .

I would love to go but I am in the same boat Lion_Lady is. I AM going to be out OH way in the tail end of May. There is the one in MI that weekend. Not sure if I will make it unless I thought there would be some people I know there. It is the 22-23, I believe.[/b]

What's in MI that weekend? Oh, do you mean Milwaukee, WI? Call or FB me when you are heading my way! For me, the IWCF in Ontario trumps the HD thing, and despite what the invite says, I think the HD thing will be mainly HD. (Which I ain't.)

I'm not sure I'll be able to swing the IWCF, but I aim to try! :hobbyhorse:

Very cool. Where are you staying in Savannah? I lived there a few years...downtown Savannah is one of my favorite places.

I'm still right here in Augusta if ya'll want to say hello on the way back!

Not sure. There are a couple hotels on the waterfront that look promising. I thought of you when realizing that Savannah is about the midpoint on our trip.

My brother stayed in this one while celebrating his wedding anniversary. I thought it was very nice, and the location is prime. It's the Mulberry Inn:
