I'm new to this whole Vespa thing so pardon me if I ask a few questions.

1. On average how many people attend these events. ?

2. Do most people ride from there from home to the event ?
( or is this more a trailer queen event)

3. How many vendors of parts, chatsky's , attend ?

4. Is there a flea market for Vespa owners ?

5. Are there planned rides in the area ?

Thank you for any responses.

1. Several hundred, a thousand perhaps.
2. Both ride and trailer, I have done both.
3. Enough to hang for about an hour or two, or more depends on your interest.
4. Well, everything's for sale on some level, right?
5. That's the main attraction, if you don't know others attending. Depending on the location, there's coffee, chicken, or apple butter. Next year I'd plan on coffee.

By the way, most rallies including Amerivespa welcome all makes of scooters, not just Vespas.

Since there is always a host club planning the rally along with the Vespa Club of America, from year to year there is some variation. I like the idea of a flea market type of thing and its certainly something we could look into if we thought there was interest.

Just looking ahead to AV, and checking the hotel, it seems the only room that comes up at the event rate is a single king room. I'm guessing that a lot of people (myself included) tend to share a room. As much as I like my friends, it's nice having separate beds....unfortunately the rate jumps to $220 a night for those rooms.

Any chance of getting a rate on other room options, i.e. two queens?

I'm looking into this. I'm not sure of the arrangement with the hotel and what was promised. I'll re-post here.

Not sure if there is a glitch on the website but the hotel said to call them to book. In my experience it is common that to get a special rate one needs to call to book. A room with two beds should be available at the spacial rate.
