Arkansas 2012 National Rally

Rally Registration is now closed!!!

The sale of the T shirts, will fund our Wednesday dinner and beverages and maybe some live music. I will provide One of a Kind designs on the shirt ,mugs and stickers. Mugs and stickers are also included in the shirt price.

Cost of the Tshirts will be $60.00    

Optional Registration for dinner only (No T-shirt)  =  $40.00

We will be having a get together at the Local Flavor Cafe Tuesday evening but that meal is not included in the registration fee.  
(Budget $20 per person sans alcohol)

You are responsible to make and pay for your own accomadations for rooms or camping.

[

Be sure to include your shirt size and STN user name when ordering.

This rate will be honored up until tax day, then the registration cost will increase.  

Lock down for registration and a guaranteed T-shirt will be May 19th.  After that date, I cannot promise you will get a shirt in the size you desire.  I will accept last minute registration additions if your a spaz and need to get away from the rat-race but the registration cost again will be substantially more to cover your meal and goodies.

Paypal payment of $60.00 can be sent to Arkansas2012stn@gmail.com

Be sure to include your shirt size and STN user name when ordering.  (Your shirt will be mailed to you)


No refunds - If you can't make it, find a buddy to take your place. Otherwise, thank you for your donation to STN

(borrowed from ADV)

There are no official rides for the Arkansas 2012
We have individuals who go on rides and welcome you to ride along.
No part of your attendance fee has anything to do with any rides.
All riders are responsible for their own actions.
Above all, ride safe.

Please do not post descriptions of other people's rides.
Instead, all ride questions should be referred back to this page (page one) for the list of ride links which contain all info.






STANDARD RIDE RULES:

Your ride leader may choose to use these standardized rules, OR his own

1. Please show up to your ride with a full gastank.

2. Please show up to your ride at least ten minutes before departure time.

3. In order to avoid delays during the ride:
a. No passing others in the group regardless of whether they are moving or standing still. If the rider in front of you stops, YOU STOP WITH HIM. That means that everyone behind you will stop too!
(Suppose the rider in front of you slows down because his bike is breaking down. If you continue past him, the leaders see you coming and procede further and further from the problem. Confusion like this makes for a long day). If the stopped rider has broken down, the leaders will return shortly.
b. If you want to swap places in line, please do so during a stop.
c. If you want to split early/mid-ride, stop and tell the sweep what you are doing so we don't spend time looking for you (and make sure you have the maps to find your way back to camp).

4. Ride at your own pace:
NEVER try to catch up to riders in front of you. Continue straight ahead. Someone will be waiting for you at the next left or right turn.

5. Safety:
Please leave plenty of room between yourself and the rider in front of you. When he has to slam on his brakes, he doesn't need you crashing into the back of him and ruining EVERYONE's day. Also, there is nothing worse than having to change the way you ride all day because of what's going on in your mirror. If a rider keeps getting too close behind you, flash your brake lights repeatedly as a reminder to BACK OFF.

6. Tire repair:
a. All riders with tubed tires should carry a spare tube the size of their largest diameter tubed tire,
(NOT just a tube patch kit, which takes longer).
b. All riders with tubeless tires should carry a plug kit.
c. Bring tire-pump if you've got one.

7. Cash:
Carry cash for gas please. Rural gas stations often do NOT take credit/debit cards.

8. No whining.

At this point in time I have reserved this rate for a block of 20 rooms on one wing facing the front of the hotel.

Food - UPDATE - 2/2/2012

Tuesday night dinner - Local Flavor Cafe - Self Pay - (Not included in Registration Fee)  

Take a look at this menu.   Inlove

http://www.localflavorcafe.net/menus/dinner.pdf

I am negotiating a limited menu for full dinner service for around $20 a head including a non alcoholic beverage.  (Cash beer/liquor bar)  This is one of the top rated haunts in the area.  Not your average bar food.  Bring money since you will pay for your own meal at Local Flavor.  They won't take a group rate prepaid ahead of time.  

Tuesday night we shall convene on Local Flavor Cafe for our meal.   It will be fine dining for a very decent price.  Set a spell and talk with your socially isolated computer cohorts.  Smile, laugh, be merry.   This will be casual and enjoyable for everyone. Family friendly!  When we get back to the Rodeway later that night, I'll raffle off some swag for the masses.

Wednesday night will be the big prize night.   I'm planning on having Bubba's BBQ provide a FULL slab of ribs for EACH person at the Rodeway Inn around back at their backyard grill area.  If weather sucks, I'll request the conference room.   Beer and such is on you.  Funds permitting, I'll make a beer run for dinner to supplement the libations.  

Yes, I said a full slab of ribs. †
 

 Drool Drool Drool Drool

I will prepay for Bubba's ahead of time since they need to prep that much meat for us.  It will add $20 bucks to the registration cost but it will be SOOO WORTH IT.  There is a reason why Arkansas is known for their meat.  You'll discover why on Wednesday night!!  Beerchug

Pony up for the flavor guys and register today!

Probably won't make this after all. Due to schedule "challenges" at work (note: my group is on-time), they are discontinuing the "9/80" alternate work schedule (every other Friday off) for everyone working on any aspect of the project. It's probably not wise to blow all my moto vacation days (5) for the year on one long trip versus using them for long weekends when the weather is good.

Base of operations motel has not been finalized but I'm leaning towards Rodeway inn if I don't hear a reply from Edlewiess.  I'll keep you guys informed once I get a group rate.

I did a test run with Wepay.com and it was terrible.  They want to verify every transaction that is incoming from each new payee.  Meaning I can't do anything with your payment until the payee calls them AFTER you pay with a credit card.  What a bullhonkey setup for efficiency.

I'm leaning towards paypal and/or personal check.

I would vote PayPal unless you're comfortable taking an electronic check. I haven't written a paper check in years. I don't know if I even have any.

I have to stipulate that if Paypal is used, there will be a fee charge passed on to you the entree.  Just the cost of convenience.  If someone else writes me a check and it doesn't show up for whatever reason, they'll have to take it up with the USPS.

If I try to be sneaky and bypass paypal fees, the whole event could be compromised if the funds are seized.  I don't know if I can receive funds to paypal via an 'electronic check'.  Never done it but I'll investigate.
