    Early arrival question

    My wife and I are going to volunteer this year. I see that volunteers may register Wed pm, but I also see a volunteer appreciation dinner evening. If we were inclined to come Tues, would we be allowed to throw down a tent for Tues nite?

    Volunteer Dinner

    The volunteer dinner is for the people who help with rally set-up on Tuesday. I am planning for food for 200 people.

    Question HiYo Tuesday?

    This is the first I'd heard(?) that Tuesday is possible. Even at this late point, Is a 1200 Tuesday arrival to help in any capacity, acceptable? I can still arrange to do that. TNX <<<)))

    Same question...

    I don't see a rally chair for setup volunteers, or anything similar. Is there a need on Tuesday for setup help? If so, would it be ok to pitch a tent Tuesday nite?

    Answers: We do not need any more volunteers for Tuesday. And actually, we would REALLY prefer it if riders would NOT try to enter the rally grounds any earlier than Wednesday.
    Remember folks - the rally starts on THURSDAY.

    As it is, I suspect we will be over-flowing with a lot of riders wanting to get in early ... and actually, EXPECTING to get in early. sigh. So come early if you must. But don't get your undies in a bundle if you are asked to move your tents, or asked to set-up in an sunny, dry location. Setting the rally up is a big task and having a lot of vacationing guests hanging around in "Rally-Mode" can make the job a lot tougher.

    Sometime over cocktails, remind me to tell you a story about what happened in Midland (2000 Rally) when a group of drunken, rowdy early arriving guests were asked to relocate....

    Once bitten, twice shy.
    Thanks for understanding.

    Wednesday it is...

    I'll continue fishing for a place to volunteer. Got a few hooks out, sure I'll snag sumthin' eventually. Trolling out of here - putt putt putt putt putt....
