BMR Banquet 2014

Consistent with all aspects of this rally, all attempts have been made to keep the cost low and the value high. The main focus of the banquet is to showcase the amazing efforts and fun that we’ve seen during BMR2014. It will also be a great venue for you to meet and share stories/fun with other riders. Those who attended last year will tell you that it’s not a traditional banquet, and this year we have MUCH more in the mix.

 Important notes for 2014:
+ You must book your room before May 01 or your will not receive our group discount.
+ We have a limited block of rooms,  -you are encouraged to book your room early.  If you find you need to cancel, please offer your room to others and transfer before cancelling with the hotel.
+ Discount code for rooms is provided when you get your dinner payment confirmation.  Group discount will only be allowed for people who attend the banquet.
+  CVI is requiring a two night minimum for those who want to stay Saturday (or a $30 surcharge)
+  You are under no obligation to stay at the Carson Valley Inn.

The format this year will be more social time and and opportunity for you to kick tires, share stories and socialize.   In addition to the awesome mix of BMR participants, There will be well-respected people from the moto-bike community in the mix.

  1. A note with link to banquet details has been sent to those who have signed up.

    For any still on the fence, you’ve got about two days to get in the mix.
    If you’re coming and plan on bringing a buddy that is not paid for …just let me know in the next day or so and they can pay at the banquet.

  2. I will be there Friday afternoon, for the best Basque food I will have had since last year’s Basque Food. By the way it is the best Basque restaurant I have ever been too. And the worst. See all the things the BMR opens us up to? I can tell my wife I am hitting every whorehouse between LV and Reno and never even get a second look.

  3. Leaving the cold Black Hills and heading for Minden tomorrow morning . We are looking forward to gathering points on the way.
