Welcometo the board ravencr. :D

Good luck with the rally. Side x sides have really become popular. Maybe exceeding the type of growth experienced with the 3-wheeler ATC back in the mid to late 1970's.

Were going. Have never been to Moab. Been lurking about the Jeep sites and this rock crawling thing looks fun.

Hello everyone,

This past week has been very hectic, in a good way. We've had some
serious additions to our quickly growing list of sponsors, such as:

Yamaha
ATV Television
ATV Illustrated Television
Legend Air Suspension
Seizmik (aka Kart Accessories)
Elka Suspension
Bikeman Performance
Ramsey Winch
Pro Armor
PCI Radios
Vector Manufacturing
Rock Hard ATV
Cliffhanger Rentals
Offroad Unlimited
Acro Lights
Arizona Sports Center

This puts us at 3 television shows with over 55 million viewers, not to
mention the latest issues in Cartwheelin', Side x Side Action, and Toy
Hauler Magazine's full page ads. On top of that, Seizmik and Elka
Suspension were nice enough to put some posters up at their booths at
the Dealer Expo this past weekend.

We're expecting this to be the largest, highest profile UTV specific
event in 2007. Next year, we're planning to do 3-4 events nationwide, so
if this year's timing or location doesn't fit well with your schedule,
come join us anyway so we can get your input on next year's locations.

Please keep in mind that registration ends on April 30th, and cabins and rv spots are booking up fast. It's going to be a lot of fun, and we hope you can join us. If you have any questions about the Rally, please don't hesitate to email us at chris@utvrally.com

Hello everyone,

Things are really shaping up for our first Rally in Moab. Here are a few updates:

- Raffle Prizes are nearing $30K: http://www.utvrally.com/forum/forumdisplay.php?f=17

- The Black Hills UTV Rally is going to be held on Sept. 1-3rd, 2007. For more details, please go here: http://www.utvrally.com/forum/showthread.php?t=186

- If you've already registered for a place to stay and for the Rally, thank you. If you haven't, please go here to register: http://www.utvrally.com/forum/showthread.php?t=57

THE REGISTRATION DEADLINE HAS BEEN EXTENDED TO THE DAY OF THE EVENT, JUNE 6TH @ MIDNIGHT! BUT, T-SHIRTS WILL BE MAILED TO THOSE THAT REGISTER AFTER OUR T-SHIRT DEADLINE WITH AN ADDITIONAL $5 COST FOR SHIPPING. IN ADDITION, THE DINNER ON SATURDAY NIGHT IS LIMITED TO THE FIRST 400 REGISTERED (MEANING PRE-REGISTERED PARTICIPANTS FIRST). After talking with numerous people that conveyed that April 30th was too soon for the cutoff, we've extended it to accommodate those folks.

- Archview is booked (RV & Cabins, tent sites still available) and Moab Valley RV Resort is booking up fast. The PRCA Rodeo is in town the same weekend, so if you're thinking about reserving your spot late in the game, I'd reconsider because you may not have a place to sleep. :) Moab Valley's information is here: http://www.utvrally.com/forum/showthread.php?t=27

- If you have already registered, please make sure you follow the instructions here to get your OHV permit: http://www.utvrally.com/forum/showthread.php?t=54

- We're mailing out 5000 flyers(with registration sheets) and 1000 posters to Yamaha, Polaris, & Arctic Dealers within 1000 miles of Moab

- Last, we've added a Buy-Sell-Trade section to the forum. Please be descriptive and include pictures & prices if you can. It should be a good way to find out what people can bring to the Rallies, instead of having to ship stuff, if desired.

That's it for now. Stay tuned for more details soon.

Chris

Hello everyone,

I'm sure everyone that's attending is busy scrambling for time to get everything ready to go...I know I am! :)

I just wanted to give a heads up on some last minute details, just to make sure no one has any surprises when they arrive:

1) Due to a recent cancellation of one of the sponsors attendees, there is (right now) a full service RV spot open for the taking. Call Archview ASAP if you want it: 800-813-6622

2) When you arrive to Archview, please go by the Resort's registration booth immediately, so we can minimize traffic congestion. As soon as you get your spot, please park it there before exploring the Rally stuff.

3) After registering with Archview, please come by the "UTV Rally Registration" table to pick up your packet, which will have a bunch of goodies from the sponsors, event schedules, t-shirts, and more. It's important that everyone in your party comes to the registration booth, because every paid participant will be getting a wristband, a raffle ticket, and a meal ticket. If they don't come by, they won't get into any events, rides, meal, anything. Also, this is where you'll sign up for the easy, moderate, hard, geo cache, poker run, tug of war, radar run, etc. There's also a waiver with medical information to fill out, as well.

4) Vendors will be setting up from 8-12pm on Wednesday with Vendor Row opening at 1pm on Wednesday afternoon. If you're around this early, please make an effort to get around and see all the exciting new products they have on display. Plus, some of the vendors are doing their own raffles, so make sure you stop by and register for their raffles, as well. (These are separate from the UTV Rally raffles = more prizes for you)

5) If you'd like my cell phone #, please email me at chris@utvrally.com and I'll send it right over to you.

6) You'll notice some folks wearing Committee Member Name tags. When in doubt, ask them if you have any questions.

7) There's going to be a lot of UTV's and demo vehicles from sponsors displaying their products, a lot of which can only be realized by driving them. Please don't hesitate to ask them to drive them...they're all more than willing and want you too. You may have to let them ride yours for a little bit though. :)

8) If after getting there, you're not happy about something, a situation, a person, a whatever, I want to know about it immediately. I've done everything in my power to prevent any problems or issues from arising, but the reality is that something will always go wrong. If you don't let me or one of our committee members know, there's no chance of it getting fixed. If you do, I'll take care of it...whatever it is.

9) Each night, please come to my cabin with your digital camera or video camera so I can upload your pics. These pics will be displayed on Saturday night at the Yamaha's Wild West Show/Dinner/Live Band/Raffle. Please be tasteful with the pics... it's all I ask!

10) The temperatures will range from 55-95 degrees, so make sure you're prepared for each day's ride with plenty of water, sunscreen, food, sunglasses/tinted goggles, and I'd recommend some type of hat. It's a pretty arid climate, so becoming dehydrated is easy to do. If you've run out of fluids or aren't feeling good, please let your trail guides know as soon as possible. They'll have extra water, food, etc to take care of you and your family.

11) Plan on getting very little sleep...just kidding...but it's going to be so much fun you're not going to want to sleep. But, in regards to safety, drinking and riding is strictly prohibited. When we leave to go to the Bar M Chuckwagon on Saturday night and you plan on drinking, please let me or one of the other staff know so we can make sure you have a ride. It's important that we all look out for each other, and this event will be remembered by all as a great event.

I look forward to meeting everyone! Drive safe!

Chris

Here's a link to where all the pics and vids will be posted: http://www.utvevents.com/showthread.php?t=27

Most people haven't got home yet, so please give them time to post their pics. I have over 5,000 pics and 88 movies to compile. Enjoy! :)
