Next year could we please, please, please, not have to drag ass 15 miles across town to start a ride at 11 AM?

I (and many others) always end up staying up too late on Friday night. How about letting people scrounge their own breakfast and starting the ride at a more reasonable (and civilized) time like say, 1:00?

That way you can sleep in a bit, eat later if you feel like it and not feel like if you miss breakfast you are losing money on your rally admission.

Also Yarusso's has been nothing but great but it is a long haul to get there so a more central location would be sweet. There are some pretty decent rides on the west side we could be checking out too.

Sounds like you've nominated yourself as the NEW RALLY ORGANIZER!!

Next Year?

You can be Frank or George (or maybe more appropriate for this board Jeremy or Nate or Amy) or anybody else you want for that matter, and I'm betting that you can be a rally organizer if there are folks that want to plan one.

While I am officially retired from the rally, there have been a few folks that have made some noises about planning an event. If and when they make an announcement about it, I'm sure they'd appreciate help in the planning.

Or maybe you should just quit being such a lush???

Dude, sleep is a petite bourgeois affectation and, like, so-o-o 1980s. Just drink more coffee, take some X, or smoke some crank and get over it.

:D

Why do I have to ride 15 miles across town at night so I can get wasted in minneapolis and then stay up until 3am and then ride home? That totally sucks too!

I vote that we hold all official rally events on University on the bridge over 280, from 3PM-3:45PM, and call it good.

Hey... That can't be real. All the cruiser-bike riders wore helmets. Wazzup wit' that?

Damnit Jeff don't make me agree with Dave!

Yeah the time can be changed but they are by far the most accommodating place we've ever used and totally worth the drive. Besides I think some people just may live in St. Paul.

(yes I'm bored)

Your house to Yarusso 13 miles
Nate to Yarusso 5 miles

To Spring Street Bar

J - 2.5 miles
N - 17 miles

To Elsies

J - 3.5
N - 18

To Square Peg

J - 3.5
N - 13

Total

Jeff - 22.5
Nate - 53

You tell him Matty. Jeff should also have miles taken away from his total since he's on a lame ass stella.

Wait a second- I consider Yarusso brothers to be in my back yard- it's further from my house to yarusso than it is from Jeff's house to ANY OF THE OTHER EVENTS?

Man, I didn't realize how tough I had it.

Yes that is always fun. I will admit it would help if they were in a better location, it does make route planning a bit hard.
