Can't fight your war until I'm finished with mine
Default Volunteer to help at the Reno Rally (Dec 2-4, 2005)

I will be volunteering my time in a few weeks to help out at the Reno Rally. If anyone else is interested, let me know.

Contact me (PM or e-mail: nmhansen@gmail.com) your name, e-mail, your shirt size, address and cell-phone number. I will compile a list and send it off to the volunteer coordinator. If you want to, feel free to contact the coordinator directly, (marymountdenise(AT)aol(DOT)com)

Here is a snippet from the e-mail I just recieved from the volunteer coordinator:

Quote:
Yes, we do need extra volunteers for this event and would love to have you. Now your answer to the question about what working the event entail. Would be have an open mind and be able to handle a change at a moment's notice. We would need someone to be on a control team either would be a stage start or a stage finish. Don't worry we will have you trained and you will be expereinced by the third car going by.....we will also have a worker info/trianing meeting at the Hilton Casino Hotel on Friday evening at 8 or 8:30pm. More information on that later....if you have any buddies that would like to help out as well...the more is merrier. We will have task for everyone to make this event an successful one and to get it ready for next year to become a national series event in 2006.

I got the e-mail on where the stages are start.

Day 1 stages will be around Gerlach. Day 2 stage look like they run between Bordertown (Stead) and Boomtown (Verdi).

More: looks like there are currently 16 cars lined up to compete as of right now, but they are expecting a few to register at the door and maybe have 20 cars compete.

I'd say the Gerlach stages will be not as desirable to spectate from. I'd try to hit up the Stead/Verdi stages on Sunday.

Yeah I thought it was weird how they say that the first car leaves from the Hilton at 8? And arrives back at the Hilton at 16:00? I didn't know this was a tarmac rally.

Well, the transit stages are on asphalt, but the special stages are all on gravel

Does that mean that they will actually drive their cars that they entered to the stages?

That is the general idea of Rallying, but I believe there is an exemption for this specific event to allow trailering to the special stages.

So, Pootie, do you know, are there going to be signs directing the tipi tais to the event from 395 or the bordertown exit or is that a nay-no my brother?

We don't have a map as of yet. But aparently its pretty obvious according to some people, as it is a fast dirt road that is frequented by off-roaders.

Yeah, I get that a lot. Its in response to nkoans signature. Rent Pootie Tang, its funny....youll laugh later, if you like stupid funny movies.

Back to the event....So hopefully its that obvious, as I dont frequent bordertown very often. If memory serves, doesnt that area have a large floodplain after storms? Im sure they have this worked out....

We just got owned:

Quote:
Plan B will be in effect-

Do to weather effecting the Verdi area and the 7000 ft elevation of the stages, the decision to use stages in the Day 1 area has been made. Factors on ever changing requirements of Sierra County have also played into the decision, the storm made it final.

Weather today is high winds, rain, snow in higher elevations. Snow over night.
Friday expects snow flurries in the valley during the morning hours, clearing in the afternoon.

Partly cloudy to sunny over the weekend.

New stage format.

Day 1

1-Stonehouse
2-Nightengale
3-Purgatory Pass
Service
4-Limbo
5-Purgatory Pass 2

Nightengale Long will be ran as part of Sunday.

Day 2

1-Stonehouse
2-Nightengale
Refuel stop on transit
3-Nightengale Long
4-Stonehouse West

Time schedule to follow.
Looks like the Sunday stages closer to Reno are canned, and we'll be re-running Saturday's stages out north of Pyramid. If there's anyone that was coming out to spectate, I'd suggest that you make a weekend out of it, and come out to the Friday 8:30pm orientation meeting at the Hilton and get assigned to a stage! That way you'll have a ride out there, and be involved in the race. I don't think spectating is going to be very easy.

...although, IMO it's not really snowing right now, just raining... maybe they'll go back to plan A if/when they realize the road between BorderTown and BoomTown isn't under a foot of snow.
