Date: Saturday, October 13, 2012 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM, Rider's meeting at 8:00 AM, Meeting area "Opens" at 7:00 AM, Scoring starts at 3:00 PM, Dinner and awards after scoring, Awards presented at 6:30 PM
Donation: $30 per rider, $40 for couples

For all you TOR guys and gals, this is TOR with a time limit, but no Bruce. There will be a bunch of tags, go get as many as you can in 8 hours. No dropping of new tags and same tag can be grabbed by multiple people. The challenge is making the most efficient use of time.


This is a charity motorcycle Scavenger hunt, also known as a rally. The concept is simple. On the day of the rally, all riders will meet at a location, at 60 Readington Rd, Branchburg, NJ. Each rider will be given a book with bonus locations. Each bonus location is worth some amount of points. You have 8 hours to ride to as many bonus locations as possible, and either take a picture or answer a question and get back to the starting point.

This is not a race, your mileage will be checked and there is a 400 mile cap on mileage to make sure there is no unwarranted speeding.

All riding will be within the state of NJ. All bonuses are related to NJ and the history of our great state.

There will also be several themes, music, tourist traps, history, odd sites, etc. NJ has a lot of cool stuff within the borders.

Every participant will receive a T-Shirt and Rally Towel (a towel with the logo of our rally and a number. This towel must be in all pictures.) Top 3-5 finishers will receive prizes and trophies.

All you need to participate is a motorcycle and the willingness to have fun. The only extras you will need are a camera (cell phone camera is OK) a pen or two and some place to put them (backpack, tank bag, saddle bag). This is not a long distance rally. There is no minimum mileage, only a max.

The rally is being conducted under the Uniform Rules of Team Strange, http://www.teamstrange.com/uniform_rules.htm

All proceeds benefit Eddie's Road, http://www.eddiesroad.org/ for at risk youth. All T-shirts, rally towels, trophies and prizes are paid for out of pocket. Every dollar from rally will be donated. No overhead! This is all for fun and for charity!

To be clear, 100% of rider fees go to the charity. I am putting up all $ for tshirts, trophies, etc. Also working on corp sponsors for prizes.

Location made more central. Posting updated. We are starting and stopping pretty much in the middle of the state to make it as easy for people as possible to get to and come home from.

GPS files will be made available three days before the event, but the use of a GPS is not mandatory, nor really needed.

Updates and fun!

We will be using facebook, email and smartphones to help make this rally interesting and different. These are completely optional and offer no advantage to the competitors.

For those who choose to use this option, here is how it will work:

Go to a photo bonus point
Take a picture of the bonus
Take a picture of your odometer
Send an email to an address (revelaed at rider's meeting), with your rider number and the bonus number as the subject
Attach the two pictures
Send!

The photos will automatically appear on the facebook page. That will allow your friends and family follow your progress as well as allowing the Rally Master and Mistress get a head start on scoring. Final scoring will happen at the judges table and this method gives no advantage to rally participants. Just makes it a bit easier if we have the pictures ahead of time. We will have a good idea of which bonii which competitors have visited, and if they have grabbed good pictures.

This method is not an all or nothing. You can do this for some, none or all of the bonuses. Again, it is just a different way of enjoying the rally!

looks like you are working hard on this, sounds fun just one question as of now, is there a set number of things to find or a min point to count as a finisher?

No minimum. You can go out and just ride for the day if you want. No set number either. It is up to the riders to figure out which bonii they are going to go after. We will have at least 30 bonus locations throughout the state plus some special combo bonuses announced at the riders meeting. Very free form. The ride is totally up to each rider.

Roadkill, rider of the world's highest mileage Victory and AMSOIL dealer is donating 6 quarts of any combination of MCV 20W-50, MCF 10W-40, MCT 10W-30 and SAE-60, shipped to the recipients address. Tim reached out to us, unbid. THAT is the best kind of sponsor. All for the kids! Thanks Roadkill!

As of now, each person will be receiving over $100 in discounts and swag.

In addition to that, this donation brings the value of prizes up to over $700. That means we can give out more prizes to more people. How exciting!

Max BMW just upped the ante. In addition to giving a bunch of t-shirts they just added four $25 gift cards to our prize pool. That makes $800 in prizes for our riders. How many charity events can deliver this level of stuff for its participants?

If you can't attend, you can still help. Support us and help the kids.

Special thanks to PC rider for assisting in the scouting for this event. Huge help in putting together such a complex activity.

Ordering trophies Monday.

Looking forward to hosting this event. Please spread the word, the more riders, the better for the charity!
