What can go wrong? :lol3

    History:

    The Eastern Rendezvous is the oldest annual ADV rally, and the only one in the south east. It started in 2002 as a small traveling gathering, and Rick aka Party Boss turned it into an annual event known as the Eastern Rendezvous. Sadly we lost Rick in 2012. Nobody will ever be able to be such a great and inviting host like he was, but we will keep his rally alive in honor of what he started.

    One for the Boss :beer

    Due to the lack of hills, we are going to do a slow-race instead of the tricycles... sorry. Or maybe we do a slow tricycle pull race :scratch
