15th Anniversary Overnighter – Pueblo, CO
August 30, 2019 @ 8:00 am - September 2, 2019 @ 5:00 pm
Friday, August 30th
Meeting location: The QuikTrip at Maize and Kellogg – 1500 S Maize Rd.
Meeting time: 7:00 am with kickstands up at 7:30 am. Please do not be late as we will leave at 7:30 sharp! We will wait to sell the 50/50 tickets and draw the winner at dinner so we don’t take time that morning.
First gas stop will be in Greensburg which is 110 miles. This will be a very quick stop. We will need to gas up, go to the restroom and replenish drinks as quickly as possible.
Second gas stop will be in Garden City which is 98 miles. This also needs to be a quick gas stop. Anything that can be put off until lunch will be helpful (using the restroom and getting drinks.)
Lunch will be at the Flashback Cafe in Lakin which is 25 miles from Garden City. There is also a Mexican restaurant right across the street for those who prefer that.
Third gas stop will be in Lamar, CO which is 77 miles. If we’ve made good time and there haven’t been any problems, we can take a longer break in Lamar as it’s likely to be hotter by then and we will need to cool off.
Next stop – Pueblo! This is 122 miles from Lamar.
The hotel is the Clarion Inn.
Friday night: Get checked into our rooms. There are several restaurants within walking distance of the hotel or there is a restaurant in the hotel. We will make a decision at that time. We can have a nightcap at the hotel bar following dinner.
WHEN YOU CHECK-IN, YOU WILL BE GIVEN A ONE-TIME USE “TWO FOR ONE” DRINK VOUCHER. IN ADDITION TO THAT, ALL FOOD AND BEVERAGES (INCLUDING ALCOHOL) WILL BE DISCOUNTED BY 20% FOR THE DURATION OF OUR STAY.
Saturday, August 31st:
The hotel provides a free breakfast.
We will plan a scenic ride that will last two to three hours. You are NOT required to attend. Destination to be announced, but it will not be a challenging ride.
Saturday night: Please plan to attend the 15th anniversary banquet at 6:30 pm in the Driftwood Banquet Room in the hotel. Kitty cost: $23.00 per person. This will be a plated meal which will be chicken with a mushroom cabernet sauce, a full baked potato bar to accommodate those who don’t eat chicken, salad, green beans and rolls. Alcoholic beverages can be purchased from the hotel bar.
Sunday, September 1st:
We will have a four to five hour scenic ride planned. You are NOT required to do this. Destination to be announced. If everyone decides they prefer to just hang out by the indoor pool and rest up for the return trip home, we will scrap the ride.
Dinner will be at one of the restaurants within walking distance.
After dinner, we will meet at the hotel bar for cocktails. There is a pool table in the bar, so perhaps a pool tournament?
Monday, September 2nd:
Meet at the bikes at 7:30 am for the departure home. We will take the same route home.
For the ride to and from Colorado, wear whatever you are comfortable in. It does NOT have to be a Kitty shirt. I STRONGLY ENCOURAGE you to wear a long-sleeve, lightweight shirt or pull-on sleeves. After having just returned from a cross-country motorcycle trip, I can attest to the fact that you WILL stay cooler if you have your arms covered.
For the day trips on Saturday and Sunday, please wear a Kitty shirt.
For the Saturday night banquet, please wear the 15th anniversary shirt if you have one. Since this is our big event, I would like the picture to have us all in our matching anniversary shirts.
Things to bring:
Cash for the 50/50 drawing (6 tickets for $5.00.)
$23.00 cash or check, made payable to KKMC, for the banquet meal. If you prefer to pay for this in advance of the trip, that is perfectly fine.
A “We’re Gonna Have a Blast” attitude!
Let me know if you have any questions!
