    Plan to be in our nation's capital June 2-4, 2006. Complete
    information is now available at http://www.dcscooterrally.com.

    Rally Hotel:
    They've secured a discount rate of $99/night + tax at Hotel Harrington in downtown DC. To secure a block of rooms, they need to provide 50% of the amount on Friday, so to make it easier on our wallets, if you plan to attend, PLEASE book via the website ASAP at:
    http://www.dcscooterrally.com/hotels.html

    Each room has two queen size beds and ample floor space. Also, you will see that reserved parking is available. That can also be purchased via the website.

    Pre-registration:
    Lastly, pre-registration is now open. You get an embroidered
    Scootergate patch and t-shirt (blue with the logo). You can register at the rally as well, however odds are you won't get your preferred t-shirt size. Go to http://www.dcscooterrally.com/preregister.html

    Time to check out DC??:evil

    Yes- the 19th Annual Fall Classic is on for this year. It will be November 10-12.
    We'll be camping at the same site: Calabasas Group Site down by Nogales on Saturday night .
    There is a registration cost. It'll probably be $25 dollars this year (subject to change). The cost includes your campground fee, all the beer you can drink Saturday night, a rally t-shirt and patch, admission to the club on Friday night (Club Congress) and possibly some other goodies. Anyone can ride for free, the registration is just if you want to get the wristband that entitles you to all the stuff above.
    Friday:
    Registration and
    The Suicide Girls at Club Congress

    Saturday:
    Ride to the campsite
    Scarab sponsored BBQ

    NO FIREWORKS! Passing on the right is allowed and Arizona is a open carry state.
    Its a great time hope to see you all here.

    November 9th, 10th, 11th, 2007

    Come be a part of scooter history and ride in one of the oldest scooter rallies in the South West U.S. The rally begins at the Hotel Congress in historic downtown Tucson. Come down on the 9th starting at 6pm for rally registration, mingling, music, drinks and, of course, scooters. The hotel fills up very quickly, so click on the link below to reserve your room NOW! FYI the hotel does supply secured scooter parking.

    Saturday morning, the rally departs from the Hotel Congress for a 125-mile ride through the beautiful scenic landscape of southwestern Arizona. We will have a mid-way stop in the rustic town of Patagonia for gas, drinks and to stretch our legs. From Patagonia, we will continue on through Nogales, Arizona to our legendary, isolated, reserved, group campsite in the Coronado National Forest.

    At the Calabasas campsite, we will be greeted by a catered BBQ, multiple kegs of beer, music and a bonfire. Several campsites, firepits, firewood and restroom are available. It can get cold at the campsite, so don't forget tents, sleeping bags and other camping gear.

    Sunday, we will awaken from our hangovers for a Mexican breakfast of eggs, potatoes, coffee, chorizo, tortillas and menudo.

    For more information: Contact Matthew or Megan Noli @ 520.591.6945 or tucsonrally@hotmail.com

    Attention: Any scooter clubs, old or new, that have participated in this historic scooter rally in the past, please contact Matthew in order for your club to receive acknowledgement at this years rally.
