for a map)
as low as $45 or $65 (with a t-shirt)
Who/how do I pay?:
What do I get for my $$?
Are the cool kids attending?
YES. See HERE
for the "IN list"
Are there big-time corporate sponsors?
Heck yes! Scroll down to see the list and start fantasizing about all the cool swag.
SLAP early registration deadline is May 1st.
What does this mean?... T-shirt ordering closes. SLAP Swag for early registrants only.
Registration CLOSES on Friday May 10th.
What does this mean?... The paypal link will be disabled and only "cash for scraps" will be accepted. We need to give final numbers to the catering company. Showing up at the event with cash does not guarantee that we will have enough food. We'll do our best to make sure everyone gets fed though.
Technically, it was never dead, but new life is being breathed into the 9th installment of this annual ADV Rally. SLAP 2013 will be infused with a delicate elixir of choice grains and hops.
Yes, we will have BEER.
We will have catered meals. We will have epic dirt and epic, twisty pavement.
We will have organized events and maybe an ADV de-noobing ceremony.
We will have BEER too.
The Northwest Arkansas inmates have been gracious hosts for the past several years, so we Okies decided to help them out and handle the workload this year. Fortunately for you, we didn't decide to move it to Oklahoma.
After four years on top of White Rock Mountain, AR, we're moving the rally a few miles downhill to the Byrd's Adventure Center
on the banks of the Mulberry River in Ozark, AR.
This location was chosen for several reasons:
1. Direct access via pavement (the roads to White Rock were getting rough)
2. More riding options (epic pavement, forest roads, singletrack, and everything in-between)
3. More activities for spouses and families
May 17-19, 2013
If you'd like to arrive earlier or stay longer, just make your arrangements with the campground.

Your registration fee includes tent/vehicle camping on site. Group showers
, toilets, and water will be available for all to use, but the camping will be somewhat primitive, much like a tent city. There will be plenty of room for vehicle and trailer parking. If you decide to camp offsite, the "camping" portion of your registration will be considered a donation to the event. We want to encourage all attendees to stay at Byrd's so we can recapture the SLAP unity that has been fading a bit over the last few years.
If you're interested in RV accommodations (i.e. a campsite with RV hook-ups), then here is what you need to know... There will be a limited number of RV/electrical sites available at a first come-first served basis. Please specify this request when you register. We will maintain a list of who has asked for RV sites (in order of "dibs") and will do our best to accommodate. We have a certain number allotted (12), but may be able to add more as needed. Only paid registrants can hold an RV spot. Here's the RV LIST
RV Disclaimer- please only reserve an RV site if you are a definite attendee to SLAP2013. If you just need to park a van or trailer and don't actually require electrical or water hook-ups, then don't reserve an RV site. We'll have plenty of room for car campers. (I'll be sleeping in my van at the campground.) Also... please don't be a selfish prick and reserve an RV site for just one person. Let's leave them for the families or groups, please. If you have a big ass RV and want to share your amenities, that would be cool. Thanks for understanding.Meals:
Included with your registration will be three meals professionally prepared by a local catering company... Friday dinner, Saturday breakfast, and Saturday Dinner. Non-alcoholic beverages will also be provided at meals.
Rides and Routes:
There is a separate thread dedicated to route gathering, ride organization, and whatnot. It is the product of much attention by our fellow inmates in NW Arkansas. Click HERE
for the stuff.
T-Shirts, swag, and other stuff:
The t-shirt logo will look something like THIS
. There is a high possibility that participants will get stickers, other SLAP-related chotchkies, and freebies including door prizes and raffles. It all depends on how well we do at begging for free shit from vendors and sponsors. See the not-all-inclusive sponsor list below. Wanna be a sponsor? Contact inmate Tomski74.
To participate in this event, you'll probably be asked to sign a waiver releasing liability (to ADV, Byrd's, and the event organizers) in the event that you somehow screw the pooch. We're all friends here. Be safe and don't do anything stupid. We'll try to do the same.
SLAP 2013 is made possible in part
by numerous sponsors (corporate and individual). We will recognize those sponsors here and at the event. These companies or individuals below have donated gear, door prizes, cash, or other items and services to make SLAP 2013 as fun and memorable as possible. From the SLAP planning committee, we thank you.
If you are interested in sponsoring SLAP 2013 (no matter the content or size of your contribution), please contact inmate Tomski74 via PM.
