I like the Idea of NASSAMs being distributed all around the contiguous United States. The Ozarks and KY were doable for thr Eastern seaboard (north and south). Black Hawk was very centrally located. It drew cars from both coasts, Canada, and points north and south- Corning N.Y. is clearly East Coast, and Rapid City is again centraly located. Spreading the locations around gives ALL owners a shot at attending a NASSAM. If a particular area feels overlooked, form a planning group, reserve your date, and host a future NASSAM. I think this is a great system, and it is completely controlled by the owners most interested and motivated. Rather than complaining, get to work and make a NASSAM happen in your area. Colorado did it.

Glad to hear its Rapid City & were doing it in June not Aug. Done Sturgis on the bike about 6 times over the last 30yrs . Nice to do it in the Solstice with a lot less traffic. Willing to help out if needed .

A request to the moderators, would it be proper to make this into a "sticky" so folks can find it? And I'd guess the same for 2019 though I don't speak for that team.

If I were retired I would love to travel to some of these other places. Here's to hoping NASSAM is still going on in about 15 years when I can travel to some of these further places
FWIW - it was in Kentucky in 2017, Arkansas in 2016, North Carolina in 2012, and Ohio in 2010.

Well, I know folks are looking forward to next month in New York, but some of us are actively finishing up planning for 2020 in Rapid City. Looking forward to both. While I'm sure there will be some conversation here on this forum after the 2019 event, we'll be asking folks to look first for information on the website nassam2020.com when it goes up on July 15. If you can't find what you're looking for there let us know and we'll remedy that. Event and hotel registration will be available at that time.

We hope everyone had a great time at NASSAM 2019. Stay tuned here for more news, but be looking for our 2020 website to be up July 15, you'll find us at https://www.nassam2020.com/ . Oh, and if you weren't at the 2019 banquet, here is a little of what you missed https://youtu.be/F7yUBu-PZEo.

Ditto to what Rob said. We are ready to sign up, volunteer to lead cruises, and assist in any way. Just give the word.

Thanks guys. Rob will be there doing his maintenance class...which I missed in Blackhawk because I was leading runs...so I'm really looking forward to that. As for other volunteers, if anyone would like to volunteer please send an email to [email protected]. I would love to have a couple more run captains, and we can always use an extra hand in the registration room.

Hello All: As has been noted, the website will be up on July 15. To kick things off I thought I'd mention that the website we chose was capable of ecommerce meaning that the process of registering and buying t-shirts, coins, etc. will be like any other online store. You click on the item you like, choose the number of items you with to purchase, add it to your cart and then pay through PayPal. We hope that enough folks have done online shopping that this will be straight forward. At any time you'll also be able to return to make additional purchases...an extra t-shirt or whatever. Upon completion of registration you'll get two emails, one from PayPal and one from us. If you lose track of your confirmations you will be able to go to the website, click on the "Who's Coming?" link and find your name. To keep some anonymity you would find me by looking for "RickH" from Washington State...you should be able to find yourself and the runs for which you've signed up. More on other stuff later.

Hello, this week's coming attraction is for the NASSAM 2020 runs that will be available. On our website (coming July 15th) you'll be able to click on the link for runs and find descriptions and maps for each run. There are four guided runs and two unguided. The unguided runs are to Mt. Rushmore and Crazy Horse, we figured there would be just so many different desires for time to be spent at each that folks could get together if they wished to stay for an hour, some longer. There are also evening shows at those locations. The other four runs are Badlands, Custer State Park (including the Needles Highway and Iron Mountain Road), Devils Tower and Spearfish Canyon. Each has been carefully planned with many stops to...uh...well...use the restroom. :-) Hope to see you in 2020. Oh, and before anyone asks, as noted on the Runs page there will be Garmin files available as of September 1st. I want to make one more pass in August before I publish those.

Hi folks, our next coming attraction on the website. We have a page called "The Basics" that will tell you all of the when, where, how and how much ($$). After looking at the photos on the home page you might want to start with the basics and then have a look at the "Calendar" page with the day-by-day schedule of events. We'll be getting our committee to start final website testing shortly so hopefully we'll get them to find any last improvements before going live. Best regards. Rick

In testing the website we came up with a new thing! If you are bringing TWO cars; please note that you will process two separate registrations and payments in two different transactions. Register the first car individually and complete payment before returning to register the second car. For each car simply list a driver with no navigator. Each car will be separately numbered with its own goodie bag. Please order t-shirts for the occupant of that car so we can insure correct t-shirts get into the correct goodie bags. Yeah, I know this only applies to about eight people, but I thought I'd throw it out there anyway.
