Bonzai preparation is coming along well. I look forward to presenting a rally that will be a challenge for those of you with a lot of rally experience, yet fun for someone new or relatively new to the game.
The point of this post is simply to beg. Please:
If you are considering participating in the Bonzai Road Rally this year, mail in your entry today, and make your room reservations. The host motel will hold the block of rooms until a month prior to the event (rooms will only be held until April 27!!!). If you are having any trouble finding a room in the area, please contact me and I will do what I can to help.
I have 25 entries in hand at present. I will be sending a list of registered riders to GLMC to post at the Bonzai link soon. I would really like to see the event fill up. That does not seem too likely at this point.
What can you expect?
Bonus locations within approximately a 250 mile radius of Mineral Point, Wisconsin. This would include most of Wisconsin, northern Illinois, northeast Iowa, and southeast Minnesota. Having a detailed road maps of these areas would be an excellent idea.
There will be a number of photo bonuses. You may use Polaroid or digital cameras. As Cruzin had said in an earlier post, the idea of the photo bonus is to prove to those scoring that you were at a specific location. It would be a good idea to be very familiar with the operation of your camera.
Enough for now. Any questions feel free to email me, or post here.
I realize that fuel is expensive, and we all have a limited amount of vacation time available. I would urge you to consider spending a day or two of your free time this year at the Bonzai Road Rally.
Thanks to those of you already entered, and thanks to those of you considering entering. If past Bonzai Rallies in Wisconsin are any indication, it should be a great time.
