DLW 2012 Navigation Rally Event - Southern SWEDEN
Dirty Long Weekend Navigational Rally - 28/29/30th September 2012. Southern Sweden
<HR style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #575757; COLOR: #575757" SIZE=1><!-- / icon and title --><!-- message -->This is just a quick note, too see if there is any interest from outside of Sweden for this nav rally/boot camp/fun event...
a bit short notice, but due to a few drop outs and a bit less than the usual subscriptions this year, we are offering a few
last minute places on this (usually invitation only) annual navigation bash; :deal

8<SUP>th</SUP> annual “Dirty Long Weekend” navigational rally<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p>
Southern Sweden (Skåne/Blekinge) the 28th/29th/30th September 2012.

DIRTY WEEKEND LONG ... a tradition since 2005, for diehard road book junkies to gather and do a heap of navigational riding together.
The weekend includes everything from night navigation routes, longer 100 to 150 km navigation stages on combination of gravel and forest roads,
with up to five or six enduro and motocross special tests thrown in, held over a three day (two night) camp out format. The forest bivouac at night
includes accomodation in one of three 12 person tents (with wood stove), catering and gear transport, with lot's of laughter, food / beverage
and socializing around the camp fire.

A link to a thread from last years event;

<o:p>DLW 2012 total mileage is between 700 and 750 km, all navigated by roadbook (except MX and enduro tests), so your registered/insured and licensed bike</o:p>
<o:p>needs to be equipped with a roadbook and tripmeter, as well as lights that allow you to navigate the night stages (it will be pitch dark). </o:p>

The event is limited to 30 participants. At present we have 15 signed on (plus the four members of the organising team) so ideally we need a (minimum)
of six more riders, and up to 15 places that are available.

Riders will be teamed up in groups of three and participate in both team and individual challenges throughout the weekend.

Cost for this whole spectacle is 180 EURO... provide for the transport of your gear over the weekend,
all tent and bivouac logistics/catering and a Sweep rider/service vehicle service.

In order to get things organised we need to know by no later than friday the 24th of august WHO/HOW MANY are coming to ride,
and get all in place (as far as payments etc.) before the end of August.

So if you are genuinely interested in being a part of this adventure (most of the Swedish participants in the TUAREG Rallye have used this event
previously as an end of season warm up/bike test for their rally preparations)
then PM me (I can send you more information/details) or post a question up on the DLW 2012 thread in VENDORS forum. :deal

Dirty Long Weekend 2012... photo summary...
<HR style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #575757; COLOR: #575757" SIZE=1><!-- / icon and title --><!-- message -->17 starters... 620 km's + 7 special tests through gravel, sand, mud wind and rain... :evil

1 finisher... :huh

Here he is... :deal:clap

With three Tuareg Rallye's and an Australian Safari on his resumé, as well as years of club MX competition under his belt, Micke is far from inexperienced. Co-incidentally it was his (younger) brother Åmme (Anders) who carted off the DLW perpetual HTFU trophy last year... but neithe of these guys are spring chickens any more... I guess sometimes experience combined with riding skill is more than a match for young bucks that bite of more than they can chew! :D So these two brothers have stamped their own brand of experience and authority on this annual event and made it their own! :lol3

Well done to Micke and all the others who participated in DLW 2012... here is a selection of some photo's from the weekend showing (a bit) of what we got up to...

PS: all photo's courtesy of my son - Deputy Drill Sargent - Camron (8 years old) who was along for the entire weekend... his fourth DLW navigation rally in a row! :thumb

Evil Invader 10-05-2012 09:37 AM
