The Savannah Rally will be held from Friday, December 5th through Sunday, December 7th on Tybee Island, Georgia. Our home base motel is:

 

The Dunes Inn

1409 Butler Avenue

Tybee Island, GA 31328

N31 59.706 W80 50.907

 

Call now to make your reservations - 888/678-0763 or 912/786-4591. You MUST mention BMW RALLY to get the special rate of $59.95 per night.

 

The Friday night meeting place will still be at the same restaurant/bar as in previous years - Stingray's, next door to The Dunes.

 

A Saturday ride is planned. Meet at the Dunes parking lot at 10:00am with a full tank, ready to ride. Downtown historic Savannah is about 20 miles from Tybee. This time of year the weather should be very nice and the squares will be decorated for Christmas.

 

Saturday night at 6pm we'll gather at the school cafeteria on Tybee Island for the world famous LOW COUNTRY BOIL... fresh shrimp, corn, potatoes, sausage and onions all cooked in large pots, then put on the tables for your enjoyment. Cost should be $20 depending upon the cost of the shrimp.

 

No pins, no rally fee, you pay your own expenses and enjoy some fine company.

We've had a group of Tampa riders partake of this before. It was great fun. Depends on when our club Xmas party happens. If the weekend is free, I'm sure we will have 5 or 6 ride up.

I'm in Boston coming home that Saturday afternoon so I'm out. Maybe Dianne can make it up there since it's close to the home folks for her.

 

Besides, I gotta watch UF beat on Alabamastan that evening!

I'll be in Savannah during Christmas and the week after. Does anyone have a good route file for the area. I've been trying to plan a few day trips but I know nothing about the area other than what I've found using topo 2008 and Google earth.

I've gotten replies to this on other boards. It seems there isn't much quality riding local to the shore area, mostly eating and sight seeing.

 

At least I'll get a short break from the North East winter.
