It's Friday afternoon and you're bored at work, why not think of good rally names?

I know there are differing opinions about continuing the old name. Part of the deal with my stepping up to this role is that I have to feel comfortable with whatever it is though, and I donít feel comfortable with continuing the Skooter Du name. I am very stubborn and sometimes irrational, so donít even try to argue with me. :) Itís a personal thing and I appreciate your understanding (or at least lack of long, drawn out debate even if it does amuse me while Iím on hold). When submitting the rally info the various boards and such, there will be a parenthetic reference to Skooter Du so that people know what weíre up to, but please suggest names that can stand alone.

Maybe Iíll do a poll next week for the top contenders or something.

Thanks all for the support and good ideas. Now get to it!

speaking of a rally totally different- Gilliam is 'one of us'. It'd be interesting if he'd cut out a picture of a scooter, glue another few things around it and call it avante garde artwork.

I agree with many views here... but one I won't yet agree to is the ditching of the rally name. I've been around here since before the first one and did the artwork and logo for several so excuse me if I feel a little bit of "ownership" in it. I think tossing the name, for some, has validity, but I would voice strongly my opinion that it has worked well for us so far and we've got six years of name recognition. I could care less about the album name theme thing, but Skooter Du is something I hold dear and why throw out the baby with the bath water? Tradition! Branding! Gratuitous use of umlauts! I say keep it. Retool the actual rally, the theme, whatever, but let's keep the good name.


So is the "name the rally" thing just a what if, or are you tryin' to piss off the admin??

Seriously, I'm not trying to piss anybody off, Jeremy has given TONS (hey, look at this board). I hope he's not at least. Regardless, I think he's a much bigger person than to get too bent out of shape over it. There's still goign to be a rally, we're referencing the Du, just changing the name with the changing flavor.

I just feel really uncomfortable continuing a name that MOST (not all) of people who started it don't want to continue. I wasn't there, I'm a relative newbie, and it just isn't my place. I don't want to feel weird about it and I would.

Remember, a rose by any other name....blah blah blah.

Just for the record (and for those who don't know the authors behind these posts) many of these totally opposite opinions are coming from people who are actually friends.

I really like the whole Gilliam thing by the way Nate & Moses.

.....and may or may not have helped in the past.

I think Lisa is right, if she's taking the helm it should be a new name w/ reference to past rally. Some things run their course and in 5 years we'll all be saying "remeber that other rally, you know the one before the " " rally"
My vote for name is BeeR RALLY 2006. With the theme being ...BEER.

Did I miss something here? I thought that beer was already the theme.

i think moses' suggestion, "scootafisk", is pretty darn funny and a good, quick catchy name.

besides, who doesn't want a rally named after stinky fish?

I think it would be very cool to issue a new name to the rally that Lisa spearheads while keeping the numeric sequence for Regular's rallies. You know, "Fill in name of rally here VII". It is a cool segue to the next thing from the thing that came before.

Besides, you know there's gonna be a clueless crew who wonder how they missed the first six "Fill in name of rally here" rallies.

I do prefer a rally title that's a bit more edgy. Mile High Mayhem. Slaugtherhouse. Deliverance. Down N Dirty.

Cute sucks.
