The Rally - OK | Autumnal Equinox 2011 rally

I'm pleased to announce the opening of registration for The Rally - Autumnal Equinox 2011.

Come join us for the inaugural Autumnal Equinox rally. Autumnal Equinox 2011 will be a 30hr rally this fall, including a mandatory rest stop. Riders who stay within the confines of OK will be eligible to apply for an OK-SS1000 if they complete 1,000+ miles in under 24 hours.

Rally Schedule:
Friday September 16th - Rally pack e-mailed to registered riders.
Friday September 23rd, 1800 - pre-rally cookout at the RM's home.
Saturday September 24th, 0900 - Rally begins from Tulsa / Broken Arrow OK area.
Sunday September 25th, 1400 - Rally ends in the Tulsa / Broken Arrow OK area.
Sunday September 25th, 1400-1800 - Scoring & commiserating .
Sunday September 25th, 1900 - Awards banquet.

The entire selection of bonus locations will be within OK.

Oklahoma is cut into four quarters by two interstates; I-35 & I-40. Each quadrant will have approximately twelve bonus locations.

Riders will not be allowed to collect two bonus locations consecutively from within the same quadrant. So, routing will become paramount to find the right combination of bonus riding distance between each of the four quadrants.

I can guarantee you that having to abide by the quadrants restriction will make for some fun, and probably anguish filled, routing scenarios.

There will not be a mandatory checkpoint. There may, once again, be some high points/time restricted options to work with/around.

There will be a mandatory five hour (subject to change up/down one hour) rest bonus. Rider safety is paramount, skipping the rest bonus will result in a DNF.

One-up riders will be $110
Pillions are an add'l $60

Both riders and pillions will have pre- and post- meals, long sleeve shirts, rally swag, and a personalized rally towel (one towel per team). Unique to The Rally is that rally flags will be the permanent number assigned to a rider at their very first event.

The Rally will once again support Hoagy's Heroes. Net proceeds from the event will be presented to Hoagy.

Hotel arrangements will depend on the total number of riders who enroll. Accommodations will be in the Tulsa/Broken Arrow area & will be disseminated to riders in the future.
