I was thinking of getting a documentary on history of British motorcycles. Then maybe one of those campy 60’s Motorcycle movie?

I was a male war bride is typical Cary Grant light comedy. I always enjoyed it but what do i know?

It is with great irritation I have to announce we will not make it to HUG this year. I can't do anything about it, it is what it is and is not likely to change. Not happy, was looking forward to it.

Have fun enough for all of us and be safe.

Gene and Becky host this event annually. Out back of their place is nice area for camping around the pond. Some folks camp out night before, some show up day of and camp out just Saturday night. Festivities usually start up around 10 - 11 am Saturday morning. Think of a big outdoor potluck lunch - chicken, burgers and dogs are grilled up and provided. Bring a dish, bag of chips, plate of cookies, etc. to share. Water and soda available in coolers. We do 'sidecar' games after lunch which tend to be quite a blast . Raffle is held and Ural related swag is given out. Gene usually opens up the shop so you can buy anything you might need.

In the evening, movies are shown. Campfire that can be seen from outer space is roaring. Folks roll out during the evening or turn to sleep in their tents and things go relatively quiet around 10 - 11 pm.

Group ride Sunday late morning to somewhere within an hours drive of Holopaw for lunch.

Important things to remember - family friendly event with kids attending and camping out overnight. Gene and Becky are gracious hosts and very welcoming - at the sign-in table when you arrive, there's a jar for donations to help offset costs so chip in what you can afford. Most importantly, enjoy and get to know your fellow Uralistas. Plenty of attendees on the board here so ask away if you have any other questions.

I’m thinking I may actually set up my movie screen on the camping side of Gene’s pond and point it towards where the fire pit is where we hang out in the evening. It’s that big!
