I'm not affiliated with the sponsoring group, but just learned about this so I thought I'd share. My husband and I are registered and will be attending the Saturday activities (definitely not Sunday, and Friday is iffy), but if anyone else from here ends up going I'd be happy to meet up somewhere during the day.

If you're on Meetup.com, you can find the event listing in the DC VA MD Scooter Riders meetup group.
Email List serve will be created from registrations.
