Announcing the first annual Mayday Melee! May 3-4, Rio Nido CA

1st Annual Mayday Melee May 3-4, Rio Nido, CA
(Fri the 2nd, too)


Update 5/1:
PREREGISTRATION IS CLOSED
I'm heading up to the Roadhouse, and won't be checking email or advrider for the rest of the weekend...gotta help get the place ready for you FF's. If you haven't registered and would still like to come by sometime this weekend, please feel free. The restaurant/bar are still open as usual, so you will not starve. If you would like to camp and/or be fed with everyone else, please call me first - 415.794.3093.
We'll see ya'll in the Redwoods.

Josh

Update 4/30:
Some thoughts as the day grows nearer-er:
-While the weekend is going to be so mellow and casual that most of us will only have a readable pulse half the time, there is one "be there or else" time that we need to nail, and that is the 10:30 departure time for the canoe trip. If you're a paddler, please make it there with some time to spare so the releases and pink slips can be signed. There are quite a few folks who are going to make sure we leave on time and get back with time to enjoy the rest of the day.
-Weather is not gunna suck...Fri=70, Sat=76, Sun=77. Nights around 45.
-Don't forget yer camping chair, swim trunks and shades. Pool is open!
-After you ignore our advice and bring your camera on the canoe trip anyway, but sure it's completely dry before attempting to turn it on (it'll take a while). That's the only way yer gonna save it. I'm currently trying to find a deal on disposables and ziplocks for the paddlers.

Update 4/21:
The names of all attendees so far have been submitted to the shirt printer. We're still accepting guest until further notice. And now, a message from the chairman.

Update 4/13:
A big Thank You from Brad and I to everyone who has registered. We still have room for more guests and will continue to accept late-comers until further notice when an accurate head count becomes necessary. These folks' screen names will not appear on the shirt however. Feel free to PM me with any questions about the Melee.
It's getting close!

Update 4/1:
Deadline for registration is APRIL 10TH!
We are using a local T-shirt vendor that is allowing us to push the cut-off date back a little bit. If you would like your ADVRider screen name emblazoned on the back of the shirt, please register by that date using one of the methods listed below. C'mon now, it's coming up quick!
Also in attendance will be representatives from Santa Rosa BMW, Garmin, MotoMeccanica and MX1West.

Update 3/24:
Yes, I'm an idiot.
Due to some technical screw-up that was probably my fault, some of this post was mistakenly deleted. Unfortunately, it also included the names of those who were "IN". Please scroll down and check the list to make sure your info (screen name, shirt size, etc.) is correct and PM me if you see anything that doesn't look right. Note to self: BACKUP!

Update 3/18:
Santa Rosa BMW Motorcycles and Mighty Zeus will facilitate a seminar by Garmin GPS representative Saturday afternoon 4pm-ish, post canoe-ride.
Seminar will be followed by a geocache treasure hunt with $500 worth of prizes donated by Santa Rosa BMW, as well as RNR schwag. Shiny new BMW motorcycles, including the '08 GS, will be on display!

Update 2/18:
Please register as soon as possible. In order to provide everything we have planned for this event and make it as successful as possible, we're requesting that everyone sign-up early. A few reasons:
-To secure the special rate we've been quoted for the canoe trip and have adequate staffing provided, an accurate count of paddlers is needed well in advance.
-We'll be printing everyone's ADVRider screen name on the back of the shirts! How cool is that?!? Obviously, our shirt printer will need an attendee list early so this can happen.
-Supply and staffing levels for The Roadhouse (chefs, bartenders, wait staff, paramedics :) will be determined by the number of participants.
(More staff/stuff=more better)



Where:
Rio Nido Roadhouse. Surrounded by redwoods, The Roadhouse boasts a full bar (duh) with a great beer selection, large lawn for tents (no need to ride after the day's activities), swimming pool (weather permitting), rockin' juke box with outdoor sound, horseshoe pit and secure bike parking. Located on Canyon Two Rd. Rio Nido, CA. +/- 20 miles northwest of Santa Rosa just off River Road (near Guerneville). It is easily accessible from US101, or scenic Hwy 1 (from Jenner).
N38 31.189 W122 58.693
Still not sure? Right here.

What:
Expect the same laid-back good times and general debauchery as the Redwood Rendezvous, only new and improved!

When:
May 3-4, 2008. Camping will also be available the night of Friday, May 2 for those wishing to arrive early and/or participate in the canoe trip.
Canoe trip??

Yeah, Canoe Trip! Saturday morning.
hey, the river is like, right there.
This is a leisurely paddle downstream on the Russian River that will last approx. 3 hrs. The paddling party will depart the Roadhouse around 10:30am Saturday the 3rd, and will be bussed to a nearby location. Those wishing to participate (highly recommended) should be at the Roadhouse by 10:30am, or arrive Friday nite and camp. Friends at The Russian River Pub will provide a pit stop and an opportunity for an adult beverage (it will surely be noon somewhere) about 2/3 of the way thru. All gear will be provided by a local outfitter, and the trip will end just across the road from the Roadhouse with plenty of time left in the afternoon for a day-ride, snacks or just lounging.

Miscellany:
-Camping Friday nite will be free of charge, however no meals will be provided that nite or the following morning. The Roadhouse bar and restaurant will be open for business late and open early during this time to handle your needs. (Bloodys...stat!)
-Snackin' Saturday afternoon will be some sort of grill-it-yerself kinda thing (burgers, dogs, standard picnic fare).
-Dinner Saturday nite will be all-you-can-eat pizza, pasta, salad and garlic bread. (The pizzas are awesome, btw).
-Breakfast will be provided Sunday morning.
-You'll get a cool T-Shirt.
-We'll waffle-off some good stuff.
-A self-guided short and long loop day ride will be suggested.
-Trying to get an A/V presentation together from our friends returning from South America.
-You really should plan on doing the canoe trip...it's too much fun.
