GROPE is still ON!

Post by BigJames » Sat Mar 21, 2020 11:23 am

and I am the rally host and club pres, and on a Ural (Gear Up broke, so dunno what I'll be on.)...

Update:
We're still going to be there. Just use common sense if coming. If you think you are sick, stay home and so on. Determine your own level of risk and stick to it. We will zero tolerance for anyone giving you $#!+ about it. Pets are welcome, just clean up after them. More to follow. Oh, and for field events. we won't be sharing blindfolds, everyone gets one they can take home...

We're gonna go ahead and give it a shot, unless all hell breaks loose...

posted this to the club FB page. Yes, I actually log in there, monthly, may be.

What will be different at the rally?

We are not going to do door prizes this year, save them for next year. Think about it, it's just not a good idea right now. Yeah, I know, have crap, I mean goodies in my garage that needs to go too...

50/50 will go to the first responders or local hospital for PPE. If you win it, keep that in mind, will leave that there. We'll figure out a sanitary way to do this one...hands are nasty, hands touch tickets, hands also go where your feet never will, got to be a better way.

We will try to do field events if the pool is closed and it looks like it will be. We'll check out the area behind the cabins for field event use too regardless of pool status. No, there will not be a shared blindfold...

Led off road rides (if I lead them anyway) will be mellow, 'cause no one wants to get near a doc-in-a-box or hospital right now. Also depends on what I ride too...

If you come, use common sense, there will be people more or less acceptancing of more or less risk than you...just be nice and respectful and everybody will have fun. Come on down, we'll be there. Might want to bring a face mask, I have no idea what the local businesses are going to require, just know it's not worth fighting over...

Sure are! A sidecar without a dog is just another sidecar. Only place they are not allowed is in the cabins, showers and pool... Rich there will be folks from the old days you might know there...folks that used to go Hack'd, So Long Summer and Hoosier Hacks events...

Got to see what our schedule has us doing. But I would love to drive down. All day drive for me. I'd be camping in van with my little pitbull.

Rich your avatar is hosted on photobucket so we're getting the "pay up or else we'll put this annoying 'banner' stripe across it to bugger up the image until you do" :lol:

Yeah
Photobucket reneged on their business model of paid advertising and decided that extortion was a better racket. I'm not paying $400 a year for them to keep my pics, so they got butchered with water marks. fark PB!
