    With the 2017 season drawing to a close, I thought I'd toss out the idea of Soiree 2018. Thoughts? Maybe a Skibum Soiree reunion?? Any other ideas or places we haven't been yet? Maybe Frenchman's Cove Provincial Park?

    Yup, I echo that possibility.

    Frenchmans Cove is nice. So is Sandbanks and Pistolet Bay.

    If all goes well getting our B&B up and running for the summer I may reinstate my original Skibum Soiree back at my place.

    Is there a date set for this?

    In previous years it has been during the Canada Day holiday weekend. But no, there is no official date.

    I will keep that on my radar.

    I really enjoyed having the opportunity to visit Pizzaman’s home in Maine and to ride Mount Washington in New Hampshire this year. I was probably a little grumpier than usual because of the flu but I’m glad I didn’t miss it. Thanks for the call Murph and for everyone else for waiting for us in Sydney.

    I hope 2018 will be as good or better.

    I’m offering to host at my place again and looking forward to the 2018 Soiree regardless of where it’ll be. Been to Frenchman’s cove and Pistolet Bay and they were both great. I’m up for anyplace you decide on, however .

    Pizzaman has no idea how much he made the last Soiree a topnotch event. It made the difference between a good trip and a lifelong memorable event. Kudos.

    As for next year, as always I leave my options open, but the Burin peninsula offers some of the best coastal riding on the province. Lots of out and backs and dirty opportunities with a central supply town. The route out through Roncontre is something every rider should consider as well.

    The original Soirees I hosted at my place were mostly end of summer, last weekend before Labour Day to work better with my work schedule. Except for the one on the West Coast where work totally screwed me.

    But now the road to Tuk has gotten on the radar which may end up with the situation the same as the last few years.:p

    I also liked the September date for the Soiree. Tuk is on my radar too. It will be done.

    Now my plan is road to Tuk, BMW MOA rally and coast to coast to coast. :confused:

    Sounds like a plan! Be sure to document your coast to coast to coast Mike! Might consider the Dust to Dawn gathering in Dawson, YT around the longest day ( it's sort of 'on the way').

    It’s too far out to tell for sure at this time, but I don’t know if I will be able to get a week off after the Soirée Weekend to do some riding like previous years. I’m keeping my fingers crossed but might not be able to commit to an extra week of riding until late July or early August.

    Hey Chuck, I will be recording my progress and I have a couple of other things on my radar that I'm not talking about. As for D2D I will be there the weekend after to fit with my schedule and the MOA rally which starts July 12.

    Ok, the missus and I have just had a little discussion about the Soirée and we have decided after a bit of a hiatus we are good to go with returning to hosting the Skibum Soiree at our house again this year. Looking at my tentative schedule the last weekend of August works for me. Last weekend would be 23/24/25/26 to run Thurs-Sun. This will also give more time to get all of the organizing done and a little more time for people to do their own planning. That and I'll need to fit in a hitch of work between getting home from Tuk and this. What say the hordes?

    I'll be putting up a thread on ADVrider and a post on the BMW MOA facebook page to see who from away is interested.

    edit: ADV thread is up, one post up on MOA.
