    Bill, as awesome and helpful your clinic is (did it in 2016) my slim travel/race budget has to make some serious concessions.

    For those on the fence or new to the rally adventure or to riding in sand this is a must do! The experience Bill offers to riding in sand and to the sometimes confusing time keeping aspect of rally completion is invaluable.

    Bill, I'm trying to plan with some out of town visitors ... has the clinic in the past been an hour or two, or should I allot all day?

    If I have other questions, should I ask here, or PM you?

    I'm definitely doing it again. Your clinic made me a better rider right away.

    Well, I've registered, reserved a campsite, submitted my medical form, and paid for my license, membership, and entry fee. I'm super excited (and more than a little nervous) for my first rally!

    There's a request on the signup forms for info about a "Service Vehicle" - will that just be the truck I'm using to bring everything down? I'm going to be renting a pickup so I realistically won't have info about it till Wednesday before the race when I pick it up. Hope that won't be an issue.

    Are you coming down from brooklyn? Totally unrelated, are you an axe murderer or other variety psychopath? Asking for a friend. With a van. And room on the hitch hauler. Maybe.

    @rkdwp Yes, you will need to register your haul vehicle as it needs to be to enter the service area.

    I would email Anders or ? and let them know of your situation. You'll most likely be able to provide that info at registration in Cheraw.

    Congrats! You'll have a blast in the sand.

    See Orion, I TOLD you that you didn't even have to mention candy to get people into your van... Let alone plaster it all over the side.


    Unfortunately, it looks like circumstances dictate that I sit out this season. Just stretched a bit too thin.

    I see a lot of dirt and can't wait to get it all clean before re-assy.

    After re-assy, no more riding!
