EOM 2020 - FJR Eastern Owners Meet

FJR1300 Eastern Owners Meet 2020 Event Thread.

The 2020 FJR Eastern Owners Meet will be hosted in Boone, North Carolina on September 17th to 20th, 2020 at the Holiday Inn Express. A group rate has been established for the event – details below.

EOM was hosted in Boone in 2006. Hosting the event in Boone provides access to our favorite roads that were just a bit out of reach to the north for most normal day loop rides during previous years. Another challenge with hosting the event in Boone has been the Appalachian State University football home game schedule in September. This is the first year that a weekend in the latter half of September has been an away game weekend. The route files that member LeeDavis has created offer something for everyone! Those files will be posted to FJREOM.com and available for download by August 1st.

There will be a banquet meal on Saturday, September 19th catered by the Dan’l Boone Inn of Boone, NC. The meal will consist of Fried Chicken, Country Style Steak, Mashed Potatoes & gravy, Green Beans, Coleslaw, dessert, tea & coffee. Seating for the banquet & meal are limited this year due to the conference room size at the hotel. Banquet capacity is limited to 65 guests.

Registration Details.

Registration will be set up and processed through the Attacktheroad.com store front. Banquet, rally swag, and other merchandise will be available there. Registration will open no later than June 1st, 2020, and possibly sooner time permitting. A link will be added here one the registration site is live.

[placeholder – link to registration will be added here]

The Holiday Inn Express located at 1943 Blowing Rock Rd, Boone, NC 28607 - (828 ) 264-2451 offers many amenities including a deluxe hot breakfast bar, Wi-Fi, and is within walking distance of many restaurants.

Wow, the riding was AWESOME at last year's EOM. Knowing just a little about the area around Boone, I can't help but believe it will be even better this year. SWEEET.

AND, a LOT of the riders will be staying at the Holiday Inn Express and you know what that means. LOL

Route Preview

LeeDavis has a great selection of ride loop routes set up for this year again - I'm working to get them set up on the EOM website so everyone can preview them and download the gpx files.

Update - August 2020.
EOM Update – COVID19 - Event Update – August 2020.

Due to the COVID19 pandemic’s current state, it is time to make some adjustments to EOM 2020. The hotel room block is still arranged and in place for those who wish to and are able to attend. At this point, there is no way to predict where individual states will be in regards to the spread or containment of the pandemic. Holding the annual EOM banquet would not be in alignment with the current social distancing guidelines and likely not by allowed by local or state policy.

The event format for 2020 will mimic what the “Ramble” has been in Southeast Ohio for many years – a show up and ride event. There will be no EOM event registration or banquet meal this year.

For those who decide to visit the Holiday Inn Express in Boone on the weekend of September 19th, you may run into a few other FJR enthusiasts...

LeeDavis created a logo for the event and I've set up a shirt order with our normal vendor in TN - they are a locally owned, small business and are very appreciative for any business they get from the group. You can find the shirts (Here), in my Attacktheroad.com e-commerce site.

Be safe, healthy and pass the Lysol!
