2016 Mid Atlantic Rally (MAR)



Mid-Atlantic Rally 2016

Dates: September 30 - October 2, 2016
Location: 100 Hoges Orchard Ln, Pembroke, VA 24136 (37°18'50.8"N 80°35'07.8"W)
Register Here

WORK WEEKENDS:
  • August 6th
  • August 27th
  • September 10th

All ROAV members are encouraged to show up and lend a hand clearing trails and preparing for the MAR. Limb loppers, heavy bladed weed eaters, chain saws, and even bush hogs are all welcomed additions. If you do not have any of those - a strong back and a good attitude is all it really takes.

Work weekends normally start early on Saturday morning and last all day. Some folks may stay until about 2pm on Sunday. Primitive camping is available on site for those that want to show up Friday night and leave Sunday morning.

We hope to see you there!!

REGISTRATION:
Early Bird registration lasts through September 15th, 2016. This includes the reduced price of $100 and includes a free t-shirt. Registrations after September 15, 2016 will cost $120 and will not include a free t-shirt.

Participants within the same family membership can bring an extra vehicle for the cost of $25.

TRAILS:
There will be trails available for all skill levels.
  • Beginner / Stock Trucks (over 8 miles of fire roads)
  • Intermediate / Modified Trucks
  • Intermediate to Advanced / Modified Trucks

Remember – TREAD LIGHTLY

All trail rides will be guided. (We are seeking volunteers to be guides!)

We are pleased to announce that the property manager will allow us to travel through the lower fields across the street from the rally camp area to gain improved access to the trails. This negates the need to drive the 7 miles to the top of the mountain and enter there like we did last year. The lower fields will be stocked with cows and as a condition of this access, we must have guides escort trucks. Please remain with the group guides and be respectful of the property owner and his livestock to ensure that we are able to hold future events here.

CAMPING/LODGING:
Primitive camping is available onsite. Tents, campers, and trailers are all allowed. The short road in to the rally area may not be friendly to oversized rigs (large RV’s or 5th wheel trailers) but standard sized campers and trailers should have no problem. Flat ground is at a premium, so please plan ahead and bring plenty of leveling blocks.

There are no electricity or plumbing facilities. Port-a-Loos will be provided.

There is access to a hose bib that is attached to a natural spring. This was used in the past to supply drinking water for livestock. The water source has not been tested by health authorities but locals drink the water – and so does Bob Steele – if that is any measure of suitability.

Generators are allowed. Rally participants should remember to be courteous with generators and mindful of the noise. We ask that all generators be shut down by 11:00pm.

Hotel accommodations can be found nearby at Mountain Lake Hotel or at any of the various hotels in Blacksburg, VA. Rally participants are on their own if they wish to secure a hotel room and these costs are not included in the cost of registration. There is not a VA TECH home football game this year so more hotel options should be available but you are still encouraged to book early.

MEALS:
There will be a vendor on site providing meals for Saturday evening. The cost of meals has been lowered to $15 per person. Please pre-purchase meal tickets as there will only be a limited amount of on-site ticket sales for meals.

The full menu will be posted later but it will likely include fired chicken, beans, potatoe salad, desert, and ice tea or lemonade.

T-SHIRTS:
Eary Bird registration gets your choice of one short or long sleeve t-shirt include with your registration. Extra t-shirts are available for purchase for $20. Please note that after September 15, t-shirts quantities will be limited and we may not have a large availability in all sizes for sale at the event.

FIRES:
Campfires are allowed at each campsite pending current weather and fire conditions. Please be safe with fires, keep a water source handy, and do not leave fires unattended. Check in with Rally Control to stay informed on current fire conditions.

RAFFLE:
Raffle tickets will be sold on site. We are already getting some great items in from our sponsors such as;
  • Sarek Autowerkes
  • Rovers North
  • Lucky 8
  • Hi-Lift Jack
  • Overland Journal
  • (more to come)

PETS:
Pets are allowed. Please remember to be courteous and safe with your pets and keep them leashed at all times.

regarding pets, I would highly encourage a footnote expressly forbidding beagles.

How about a standard poodle that learned how to howl like a beagle at puppy school?

No. That is just a horrible, horrible idea. I'm going to put that one up there with this other idea.

His rig is here in Virginia already so if he doesn't show we'll bring it and thrash it.
Was planning to bring a turbo'd and turned up Perentie so hopefully Raub rolls through here and grabs his rig.

What the hell is normal? It sure isn't white or light grey.

I am hoping for no rain.
We've had to many with rain, rain, and more rain.

Sucks I'll miss MAR this year. I have an opportunity to travel to Kyrgyzstan to do some work with the Habitat for Humanity. We'll be building more sustainable housing for some folks in a village north of Bishkek. Should be interesting, I hear the vodka is an ass-kicker.

Planning to be at the work weekend on the 27th.

Nomar - ooh, not feeling the t-shirt love! In the past, we were just searching for something new and different than the "normal" colors. I think with our logo for this year we will return to the traditional palette of earth tones.
