    2019.2 Trans Florida Rally
    October 19th - 20th, 2019
    A CADS Event


    This is an overland adventure from Palatka to Yankee Town, Fl. This is a roll chart dual sport event, crossing Florida on as much dirt (Florida Dirt :evil) as possible.

    [​IMG]

    We will be based out of B's Campground in Yankee Town 352-447-5888. In Palatka we will be meeting near the River and HWY 17, Southwest Corner.

    [​IMG]

    Yes you will need a roll chart

    [​IMG]

    There could be water to cross

    We will have a Saturday Morning Rider's Meeting at 8:15 at the SW Corner are of the River and Hwy 17 in Palatka. "Just look for the bikes". Last time I was planning to have the meeting at the amphitheater on the River. However about 50 bikes has already staged on a side street before I showed up. So The bikers will tell you where to go :D.

    Roll charts will be passed out then along with a bonus point list. These will be points not listed on the roll chart.

    Dinner on Saturday Night will be at the Blackwater Grill in Yankee Town at 7:00 pm, again look for the bikes, that is how I find it. :lol2

    Rider's Meeting will be at 8:30am Sunday Morning at B's Campground in Yankee Town. Roll Chart will be then handed out for return to Palatka. We will have our finish "party" at Beef O'Bradys in the Quality Inn on the River in Palatka.

    Turn in your points then to see if you win your class and get a trophy. How do you get points? On the roll chart you will be asked to take a picture of a particular location. Each picture earns you points, top points in each class get a trophy.

    Every rider that completes the Rally and makes it to Palatka on Sunday earns a coveted finisher's sticker. Folks ask, can I get a sticker if I only do one day, I typically respond, "do you want the front half or the back half of the sticker?" :jack

    Many ask if this is a hard Rally? Yes as less than half that start, finish :D.

    Class A- Bikes 950 cc to 2,000 cc
    Class B - Bikes 600 cc to 949 cc
    Class C - Bikes 150 cc to 599 cc


    Welcome Party Friday Night- Once again we will be having a welcome party and dinner for those coming into Palatka Friday evening. Starting at 4:30pm we will be meeting up at 1933 County Rd 13S (Racey Point) along the St Johns River. This is on the east side of the river. We will be having dinner and there will be a small charge to eat.


    I will be adding information as we move forward. This page will be constantly up dated as we move forward. Ask any question many here know the answer, and they usually have to tell me how it works.

    Rally Fee - None (ps, that does not mean you do not have to pay your bar tab :1drink)


    Starting Area assembly
    Saturday Morning we will meet up starting at 7:45 on St Johns Ave corner of Memorial Parkway, Palatka. Pick up your roll chart, sign up for your Class.

    Rider' Meeting at 8:30

    Dinner in Yankee Town Saturday night dinner is at Riverside Inn/Blackwater Grill in Yankeetown at about 7PM, we'll be upstairs. It's a little upriver from B's campground.


    Sunday's Finish will be at Beef O'Brady's the Restaurant in the Quality Inn on the NW side of the River in Palatka. Finisher Stickers and awards will be given out. Points must be turned in by 4:30 and trophies will follow immediately.


    Big Thanks Once again to Cynthia and Nanc for the Trophies and stickers.

    Darn! I'm going to be up in N. Carolina that weekend for our 30th anniversary, so no Rally part Deux for me. But I had a great time at Rally part Un earlier this year!
