Q: Must I have a phone capable of sending pictures via email to participate in this rally?
A: Yes, you must have a phone capable of sending pictures via email.
Q: I don’t have a phone capable of sending emails/pictures, is there anyway to participate?
A: No. However be aware that there are some very cost-effective phones and data plans out there. I’m currently testing a Verizon prepay plan where the phone cost $25 and the data plan is only $10month with no contract. Also, if you want to participate as a volunteer, we may have some really fun chores that we need help with!
Q: Tell me more about the banquet – When? Where? Cost?
A: The banquet will be in Nevada on Saturday May 12. More on banquet (Here)
Q: Is this a competitive rally?
A: Yes/No No/Yes. This rally is a new format and participants’ focus should be on “finishing”. “Finishing” is not hard to obtain. Also, because this rally is scored (nearly)real-time you’ll be able to know the status of your fellow riders as well as yourself. Yes, there will be recognition for most points and for the first person to reach “finisher” status.
Q: How come some geographic areas have more bonuses than others?
A: Keep in mind that there are 3 bonus listings. Please see the section on bonus listings (here)
Q: Unfortunately my budget and probation officer prohibit me from attending the banquet …..
A: Understood. We’ll miss you and realize that not everyone can make the banquet, but know that your finisher’s shirt, awards and swag will be mailed to you.
Q: How do my bonus pictures get from my phone to this site?
A: Magic. When you sign up, you’ll be provided with some simple instructions that will enable your phone to post pictures to this site under your unique profile. While simple, you’ll want to practice a bit. Also, keep in mind there is a money back guarantee (here) if you give this rally a fair shake and it doesn’t meet your expectations (we’re sure it will)
Q: Golly, this rally seems like some good fun, and I’d like to help and/or contribute somehow, is there a way to do so?
A: Yes, go here
Q: If I stumble across something fun or unique while on this rally and want to share the picture via this site, can I post the picture -even though it isn’t a rally bonus?
A: Yes, your unique placard has two sides, one for bonus pictures and the back side is for personal pictures. Please don’t overwhelm us with boring stuff, but please share the fun or interesting stuff. And remember, your placard is required in *all* pictures.
Q: Can We Do This 2-up?
A: 1. If the pillion wants the shirt, swag, and to be considered a finisher, they need to enter separately and pay the entry fee. Then, they need to be in every picture along with their placard to count towards finishing. You only need one picture per location, with both placards and the pillion included in the picture. If you are together on all bonuses, you and your pillion will get the same score. This is to ensure that an entrant is not on solo rides racking up points without their pillion.
2. If the pillion just wants to come along for the fun, and cares not about the swag and/or being a finisher, they can just ride along to as many locations as they wish. They do NOT need a placard or to be in the picture.
