Ok folks, here is a little preliminary info about NASSIR 8.

http://www.exploreedgefield.com/place/edgefield-inn

Edgefield Inn

702 Augusta Rd,
Edgefield, SC 29824

(803) 637-2001


I spoke to the manager last night with the dates, we have a rate of $60/night. Mention "Edgefield Goldwing Rally" for the dates and rates. It is a small hotel, 46 rooms, of which she will give us 40 of, so book early if possible. There are other hotels about 15 minutes away, so don't panic if it fills up. Do not try to book online, call them at (803)637-2001

The town is very excited about this rally. The mayor is giving us the town's soccer field for free camping. There are electrical and water hook ups available here, as well as a permanent concession building with bathrooms and a covered picnic area. I will have to work on shower facilities between now and then, but shouldn't be a big deal.

The mayor has also offered to shutdown town square for us to have a block party one night (most likely, Wednesday night). There are two restaurants on the square that have great food and both serve beer. I know both owners and will ask them to stay open late for us. Maybe even a live band, we'll have to see.

My company, the NWTF, has a large covered pavilion for us to use Thursday night for the dinner and auction. Full kitchen and built in sound system. Perfect for our needs.

There are good riding roads nearby. A large lake 30 mins away, for those wanting a little more of a ride, we are 2 1/2 hrs+ from the SC/GA beaches or the mountains, both very nice rides.

I will make more details available as I can.

A few pics, the hotel and the soccer field.
There are several power spots and a few water spigots around field. The town maintenance manager had several big cords made that stretch to center of field with 4 connections each, originally for vendors at festivals, but will work fine for campers. We'll run water hoses as needed. Concession building has men's and women's bathrooms, 2 stalls each, I think. As stated before, no showers, but I will have something in place. We'll also have use of building with fridge and kitchen and covered area with picnic tables.

Cool Shoes, Bubba!
This should be something. And I won't have to worry about my car burning up getting there.
I'll bring one of my 10x10 portable awnings like I had at 5. We could always side that in and make a shower area if we needed to. I also have a 10x14 never used tent we could use for whatever if needed. It could be like a MASH unit!

Reservations Made!!!!!

The young lady that I talked to just had a meeting with her manager about our group, SBinSC is correct when he says they are excited about this, you could hear it in her voice and they could not be more accommodating........

By the way, I got the whole week, from Monday the 14th through the 18th, leaving Saturday morning..... $309 and that includes continental breakfast!

If we are able to make it over, we officially accept that invitation, but only Helen the Viking will take the eggs, grits and country ham for breakfast please. I don't do eggs or grits, however, I will be happy to treat you to a full English breakfast Limey Brit style!!! :waving:

Needless to say, if we do make it over, we would be coming for a good two weeks, (that is a long flight for a two day rally!!!! :ROFL:) So we would love to ride up your way Roscopc!!!

Room number?

The young lady at the reservation desk told me we are # 7 but I did not get a room number. Guess I need to check on that. We will be there Sunday night thru Thursday night. Looking forward to a great time and again meeting and seeing a wonderful group of people.
We have ridden very little in South Carolina, so that will be a treat for us.:)

PS: Just spoke to April at the hotel and she told us we are in room 210, on the back side facing a large field, not the parking lot! Whoo Hoo!

Hey Jeffery,
We'll be 'neighbors' as we'll be in Rm #208. :waving:
Spoke with "John" at the motel. He 'promised me' a refer and M/W in the room by next year!
John said he's 68 and a Harley Rider. Hoped that was OK. I told him "we allow Harley Riders,... but make them Ride in the rear". :raspberry:

I'm excited already. June is looking forward to it too.
