Cool2 POSSUM TROT ADV RALLY AND CHALLENGE,POSSUM KINGDOM LAKE, April 24-26, 2015

POSSUM TROT ADV RALLY AND CHALLENGE, April 24-26, 2015
Yep, Ghost and crew are at it again. Spooning up adventure and challenges by the shovel. Final details are not finished but I figured I needed to get this posted so y'all can mark your calendar. Location will be south of Graham on the western edge of Possum Kingdom Lake. This will be similar to Roll The Bones Rally but a new area for roads and a killer off road challenge. Slow Old Guy will be meshing routes on public roads and I will be dealing trails of doom for those wanting the trail less traveled....literally...you might be the first and last to ride these trails Please have your insurance paid up and me as your beneficiary The Challenge will be for plated dual sport bikes and be held on private property. It is not a race, it is based on successfully riding through the various terrain and obstacles. There will be prizes based on classes and experience. I am very close to having all the details worked out with the location and catering. Stay tuned to this thread and I will update this post with a link to registration once up and running.


AND SO IT BEGINS....The First ANNUAL Possum Trot ADV Rally

Registration will be $45 unless paying by PayPal which will be $47.00. Registration with Challenge Event will be $65($68 PayPal). As of this time, I have been unable to come up with suitable logo for shirts. I am still working on this and hope to come up with something. T-Shirt sales will be short since my vendor has a 3 week turnaround. Shirt sales at the Rally have been a pain so I may not order any extras, if I do it would be very limited number. ART will be having a Hospitality event Friday night, breakfast Saturday and catered Fajita Dinner Saturday night. Tent camping is included in Registration
Registration can be done from the Adventure Riders of Texas website and those wishing to pay by PayPal may do so for a slight increase to cover PayPal fees. Checks can be mailed to my address found on the payment page of the site and the registration page. For those bringing a non riding spouse, child, or other family member, we are charging $25 each for them to participate in meals and hospitality. If they want a T-shirt it will be priced the same. ART website:
www.adventureridersoftexas.com

We are staying at the Possum Hollow Resort, Cabins and RV Park just west of Possum Kingdom Lake, here is a link to the Possum Hollow Resort:
http://www.possumhollowcamp.com/

For those wanting to stay at Possum Hollow cabins or RV spots, you will need to call 940-549-1873 for reservations. Possum Hollow has offered us a 30% discount on rooms and 25% discount on RV sites! A description of the cabins is on the website. Cabins/Rooms/RV sites will be paid to Possum Hollow. ART has been authorized a camping area for tents and will be overseen by ART Staff. There will be no additional charge for tent campers. Separate restrooms/showers for men and women campers. Possum Hollow has 21 cabins and we will be limited if we fill up since Graham is about 20 miles away. Make your reservations early!!!

All riders are expected to have motorcycles that are legal and operative in good working order. This is not a led ride. We have logged MANY MILES investigating roads and routes to put this together. Riders will have several routes to choose from ranging from strictly street to pretty treacherous dirt roads. All routes are public roads. Many county roads in this area get rough and are subject to change based on maintenance and weather factors. WATCH FOR ANIMALS!!! Deer are a big concern! In addition to deer, you might encounter armadillos, rabbits, buzzards, dogs, coyotes, camels, stag, elk, zebra, cows, horses, goats, sheep, ETC...All of these are out to get you...You will also have to watch for rutted roads, trees, tractors, little ol’ ladies, soccer moms, well…you get the point...

All riders MUST sign a release at check in. Check In will begin at 12 noon Friday April 24. Check in times will be 12-2PM and 5-7 on Friday. Saturday check in will be at the Riders meeting starting at 7:30 AM.

I'm probably in. Down to just the GSA now so I suspect I won't be doing the Challenge.

Great place to ride and a great host. Places could be a handful on a GSA. This could really be a great event. Hope to make down from CO myself and meet some more of you Texas riders.
