2017 Gathering of the Nortons, April 23
« on: January 28, 2017, 02:33:06 PM »
The 24th Gathering of the Nortons will be held at Washington Crossing Park, April 23rd, 10AM to 1PM. Always a big day on the NJRATS calendar, our traditional Spring awakening, and never too early to start thinking about all the cool bikes we'll see.

And never too early to decide if you have a ride cool enough to go! 8)

I couldn't find the date anywhere back when I put the 2017 calendars together, so I'll just pin this to the calendar here on the board.

The DVNR web site does not list a rain date.   If I remember from past year's events they don't usually have one.

So, we should firm up our plan. Assuming the weather is OK, how about 8:30 at Valero? We should arrive early at the event, which formally begins at 10,  for choice bike parking, as last year. If anyone is coming from points north, just meet at the event if you can't gat to Valero.

All that being said, current weather forecast looks ugly, so we should call an audible at 8am Sunday. There is no rain date.

 Sounds good to me.   Current weather does not look good, but it has been changing a lot over the last 24 hours so we'll have to watch as we get closer.

Weather looks more promising now, with lower chance of rain, and earlier time.
