- Yes, nametags
- Shorter rides which provides free time for socializing or shopping or getting the bike fixed.
- Having a location that had shops, a battlefield, and curvy roads made the rally more appealing to riders and passengers. Gettysburg set the bar pretty high.
- Recommend radios for ride leaders and sweeps.
- Inform the un-herded cats they need to arrive at the start of the ride with a full tank of gas and a helmet (just in case we ride into a helmet state.)
- If Kick-Stands-Up is 8:00 a.m., kick your stands up at 8:00 a.m. and go.
- Rotate location East, Middle, West
- Schedule mid-week, Tue, Wed. Thur.
- Setup a Rally Oversight Group (ROG) to make decisions and advise organizers based on lessons learned.
- Potential organizers submit plans to ROG for review (Plans include location, hotel, restuarants for banquets, ride routes, local attractions, potential sponsors, vendors, names of committed organizers.)
- Oversight group present viable plans to members to vote on.
- Try to have more fun (bet it can't be done)
Chris made it seem so easy, but he paid attention to a lot of details and had good help. To keep the event "easy" and sustainable, some structure and formulas are necessary so those who follow Chris can do as well.
