2020 Flint Hills Stampede - June 12-14
« on: June 03, 2019, 12:33:02 PM »
I've retired (again), and would like to coordinate next year's Stampede now that I have SO much time available to coordinate an event of this stature. First things first .... would like to get the location pinned down.

We've never had an event of out Cottonwood Falls, and yet there are venues to accommodate us ... such as Camp Wood YMCA, Swope Park, Mill Stream Motel, and Chase County State Lake (primitive). Do a little research ....

Once the votes are in, will visit with the selected city Chamber of Commerce, potential sponsors, etc. Early prep helps pin things down.

Next will come the volunteer side of things .... ride leaders, support crews, etc.

Whaddya think?

Best .... Roger

Roger,

I'm glad to hear it! I will be happy to help in any way that I can - sending out to the member list, organization, setup, etc.

Cottonwood Falls sounds good to me. I'd be interested in camping as well, but I'd prefer to see flush toilets and showers at my camp ground :)

Thanks for the early responses! Will let the polling run for a couple of months, then lock down the location based on the popular vote. After that comes the fun part ....

Past Stampedes would have never been as successful as they were without the participation of volunteers who helped plan, coordinate, promote, and lead. We, as a team, have had a knack for putting together memorable events ... and it will be a hoot to do it again!

Thanks, Roger

I voted for Cottonwood Falls, but be aware as far as I can tell from researching on the net RV sites with utilities are slim in that area. For example Swope Park has 5 and Camp Wood YMCA has 3.

Have locked the poll after plenty of time to vote since it went up. Let's keep all discussions on this thread to keep everything in one place. I'll start gathering info and placing here ...

Now that I am back in the dirt, I will put this on my calendar to make sure I have that weekend open. Been a while since I have led a ride but would be willing to throw my hat in if needed.

Roger,
I live in the area (White City) and would like to help out any way I can. I've ridden dirt and street all my life (54yrs) and recently purchased a crf250l rally for off-road cruising. I'm currently scouting backroads in the flint hills and can't wait for spring for some weekend trips!
