This is an incredibly well organized and well run event. As are all of the events that RMAR hosts! There is no free lunch, these things cost time and money. The fundamental basis on which the organization is founded and run is to help support the people and organizations that are WORKING to maintain our sport.
Yep that it is, no one forces anyone to come and have fun. Don't like the word Donate then call it a FEE, who cares except you Fe Man!!!

And the work we do to put this on when we don't see a single penny from the event as all monies beyond expenses like Food and what have you all goes towards various trail organizations.

Just to let you know I pay for my own Cabin, my gas, my time coming and so do the other Board Members of RMAR. We are a Non-Profit to the truest sense right now. I think actually I am the only Board member that is getting a cabin on my dime and they are not cheap.

The reason its called Donation is because some people donate money and don't even attend the event. We are a Non-Profit and you can donate when every you want. You don't have to come to donate. Plus I guess no one can stop you from showing up and riding but you are not par-taking in the Diners, Door Prizes and all that good stuff.

Fe Man - Sounds like this event is not for you, you just want to nit-pik the little things. Feel free to call it a FEE *shrug*

Oh and really Lets see what you get for $60:
2 Diners (You probably pay $15 per diner out so that is what at least a $30 value).
1 - T-Shirt (You pay $20 a shirt previous years this year its included)
Unless we have a bunch more people sign up, you should be getting a $20 DVD in the Rally Bags.

So in Total a $70 value that you pay $60 for...maybe we should charge a LOT more. Plus you have a really good chance of winning other door prizes that are worth $600+. So again what is the issue with the word Donate?

It's 7 minutes and 34 seconds long, so make sure you have time to see it all before getting into it.

For those that may be sitting on the fence about going, I hope this video may encourage you all to get signed up and join the fun.


Great video SteveO you always do a great job on them.

I would also like to say THANK YOU in advance to those that always step up to help volunteer for things like cooking or stuffing the Rally Bags. There is only so much 4 RMAR board members can possible do and still be able to ride and enjoy the time in Silverton. Every year we get a great group of people and for that I say THANK YOU

I usually call them Modette's Mystery ride. At one point, about 8 riders were huddled around a map trying to figure out where we were.......what an awesome ride! What an adventure!

Single track

Thanks, good info. I'll (and a buddy) be in Ouray during this events duration and will likely run into RMAR groups many times. It seems the immediate area lacks single track (or non jeep use) and I'm having trouble finding a trail I'm pretty sure was near silverton. Any good websites listing trails in the area?
