From what I understand it is the grassy area along the front of the campground next to the trout stream. Are you on the Ferenbaugh website. You can see the map of the campground.

Yes. I was wondering which campsite to reserve. I may have another fellow coming with us that has never been past St. Louis! He's really excited about going. We'll see what the summer brings. Thanks for the info.

Does anyone have the email address of Ferenbaugh Campground? The email link, at least on my computer, wants me to set up a new account through Windows. No thanks.

In the area for rates on their website, it says they are only open from 4/15 through 10/31 so I'm assuming that's why no one is answering messages or returning calls.

For all you [us] non-campers...

Larry has set up an agreed rate at the Econo Lodge in Painted Post, about 8 miles from the campground. According to the desk clerk, they are undergoing a face lift and the rooms are all being redone with new carpet and fixtures. OK, that's according to the desk clerk but it's the best info I have. I don't know what the rates are yet but I'm expecting something in the $85-$95 range.

Don't call until Tuesday! The group rate hasn't been activated yet. Hopefully, Larry can do that on Monday.

There are both closer and nicer places to stay but the rates are running around $150/night. Priceline has some offers in the $130's but this is an "event weekend" so those rooms might be really scarce.

'See you in Corning!

Al is right on rates but I think it is Americas Best Value Inn. The rates are $84 per night with an extra $10 for pets. I hope to have more solid info today or tomorrow.

Will is right about the motel. We started started talking with the EconoLodge but got a better deal with America's Best Value Inn. The block of rooms is still not available but should be by tomorrow. I'll post all the information when rooms can actually be booked.

See you in Corning!

Thanks Al for posting that info. When I gave the reservations lady the dates, she immediately said, "Oh, are you with the sidecar group?" Got the $84 a night rate. Looking forward to a great rally, the area looks like it has some great sidecar roads.

Heard a rumor about something very near and dear to sidecar rally attendees....... ICE CREAM! There is a great little place for ice cream in town, even has a non-dairy frozen dessert.

Am planning to arrive Wednesday, July 26th.

Hi Everyone:
There are 4 lists of information for the National Rally in 4 new threads. These are for other campgrounds and lodging, local and New York points of interest and local eateries. I hope you can open these and make a copy to bring with you or load on other devices to bring with you to the rally. If you can't open them email me and I will send you something that will work. See you at the rally.

Sidecar Skills registration will be onsite during the rally, first come-first serve.  The number allowed in each session may be restricted depending on weather and the size of area we are allowed to use.

Safety first.

I was about to inform everyone that Ferenbaugh Campground is open for business but Chuck has already found that out. Get your camping spot nailed down for the rally. For those not camping we have a block of rooms at The America's Best Value Inn. See details below.

Americas Best Value Inn
196 S Hamilton St
Painted Post, NY 14870
(607) 962-2456

Larry and I walked the rally site today, everything is coming together for a great gathering of sidecarists. Everyone we met there seems excited to host our event. The campgrounds has even lined up a DJ for Saturday night with a 1980's theme dress up contest. So bring your bell-bottoms, big hair and bogey all night long.

There are both open and shaded spots for trailers and RV's with hook ups, a tent camping area with trees, playgrounds and miniature golf, a swimming pool plus a catch and release fishing pond. Being out in the country, the grounds is quiet with cool fresh air.

The school parking lot in town is all ours for two days for the skills refresher sessions. Sign up will be on site at the rally for a limited number in each two hour session.

Of course, we had to check out the quality of the ice cream available in Corning for you guys, (boy, the sacrifices one has to make to please the sidecar community), all I can say is, it tasted as good licked off my fingers as it did in the cone. They even have a non-dairy ice cream if you want.

For the rides, both paved and gravel roads have been identified for those wanting to explore. Maps will be available.

There are so many things to do and see in the Corning area, you could spend a full week here and still not see everything. Besides the huge Corning Glass museum, there is the Curtis Aircraft museum and the Rockwell western art museum. Main street in downtown is lined for blocks with small shops, crafts, collectables, antiques, craft beer, food cafes, etc, etc, etc.

Watch here for more rally details as they become available.
