High Desert Scooter Rally
« on: September 14, 2010, 09:31:31 AM »
First off big thanks to Rival Gang, DMBK, and the Highland Hooligans.
I had a great time at LIL' SOMETHIN', and I hope to return the favor.
My humble club is planning on hosting a camp out in the spring or fall of next year.
You'll all be invited.
The idea right now is a meet n greet on a friday night with live bands.
Saturday we'll meet up and visit several of the local winery's, a distillery, and a brewery.
Then well ride out to a camp ground either on the Mesa or the Colorado National Monument.
We'll set up camp, and BBQ..
That evening we'll enjoy wine or beverages, around a camp fire, with live acoustic music.
Sunday, will do a scenic ride, before breaking camp and saying goodbyes.
Possibly raffle, maybe a Scooter.
This is all in the beginning stages, but should be a great time.
If your interested in attending or have any suggestions, please drop me a line.
Put High Desert Scooter Rally in the Subject.... Cheers John Tonic

I've never been high in the desert... sounds like a fun sort of Doors kind of Scorpion King type thing. Just exactly what desert are you planning to be high in?

Cheers!

By High Desert I'm refering to the Western Slope, Grand Junction, area of Colorado...

I wont be able to make this John, But dang! Sounds like an awesome rally! For a first one you guys swing for the fence and that's pretty cool.
It's not the size of the tool that counts, it's the size of the box you put it in.

The High Desert Scooterist and Blue Ribbon Kings SC invite you to join us for our Camp Out/Rally (The Gathering) September 23 – 25, 2011 on the Western Slope of Colorado.

•We'll be camping at the Sanddlehorn Campground on the Colorado National Monument...
We need to reserve your spot. Here's the deal. Camping is $20 a night for up to 3 tent's and up to 7 guest. Each site is limited to 2 vehicles with an exception for Scooters. So, if you tow your bikes to the Gathering you'll be limited to the vehicle and trailer. If seven of you ride you're scoots to the gathering all seven scoots can park at the campsite. These are individual campsites in a group campground. Please message me with your reservation, and how many people will be sharing your site, ASAP. No money is due up front you'll pay for the site when you arrive.
Camp ground information can be found here. http://www.nps.gov/colm/planyourvisit/campgrounds.htm
There are several hotels in Fruita, Grand Junction, and Palisade for those not interested in camping. Please message me if you plan to attend but do not plan to camp. This includes Locals.

•We have booked the Tenacious Brothers Pub, for Ska Showcase...
Bands Date and Time, TBA. Event will be Friday or Saturday Night.

•We have a tour of local Winery's planned for Saturday...
The route of this ride is amazing stretching across the Grand Valley, and even if wine is not you're forte the ride alone is worth the trip.

•We have a ride planned across the Monument and into Grand Junction for Gymkhana at Motorcycle Accessories on Sunday…
The fee to enter the Colorado National Monument for a Private, non-commercial vehicle: $7; Individual (hiker, bicyclist, motorcyclist): $4. Good for seven consecutive days. Fees apply to those 16 years old and older. This fee is on top of the Camp ground fee.

• Sundays ride will be followed by a raffle and awards at a venue TBA...

We need to start getting a head count so please message me to RSVP, or with questions...
I need locals to RSVP as well, The Blue Ribbon Kings are working on Rally Packs and would like to determine how many are needed. We also need a head count for the Winery's and Venues so they can be adequately staffed...

To stay updated, and join in on the conversation please join us on the HDS forum, if you haven’t already. If your not a member of the forum you can email me to RSVP, Ask Questions, or join our Sponsors highdesertscooterist@hotmail.com… Check this thread often for updates...

I think I talked with all concerned party's at the LSS3, but in case I missed anyone I will not be attending the High Desert Scooter Rally. My buddy who is the co-owner of the trailer will be using it the weekend of the rally. If I missed anyone who was wanting a spot on the trailer I apologize.
Those who choose to travel through life on four wheels are merely spectators. Those who choose their adventure on two wheels are participants.

It's your journey......Participate
