Hi Folks:
Just so you know - the Elkview is not set up for online registration. If you try, and I tried, you will find you are registering for the BIG Rally in August.
Kathy is taking phone (1-877-478-5162 or 605-478-5162) or email (elkview@rapidnet.com) reservations. Tell Kathy what you camping needs are. They will take your money when you arrive.

I just sent them an email this afternoon and got a reply tonight. So looks like all is good to go in June. Hope to meet a lot of new people and learn a lot about sidecars. Next week I get to go on vacation to Seattle to visit our son. I will be making a side day trip to DMC sidecars South of Seattle . Can't wait should be a fun trip and a good day talking to Jay.

Last month, I tried to get a room at near by motels - none were available.. Today I was going to reserve a camping spot but checked motels again -- found room at Ramada Summerset. Except fot the ground being way below my feet, I love camping......

Hi David:
Murphy me "Mr. Cool" with those sunglasses. I got your check today. Thanks.

FYI for everyone on this forum thread. We have an unofficial count of 100 people preregistered as of today. I say unofficial because there are 3 people for which I haven't gotten money but they have emailed a preregistration form. We are going to have a great rally. See you all in June!!!

H All:
With Ace and Jim our preregistrations would be at 106. We are looking forward to a great rally. Harold and I found out Tuesday that the Camaro Rally is the same weekend as our rally as well as a 100 mile run (as in running on feet). We don't have any new info on the cross country scooter rally that is supposed to be in Sturgis that weekend too. That accounts for the motels being full in Sturgis. If you need a cabin or a motel room there are some options within 11miles. In Piedmont, SD there is a Ramada Inn that has been highly recommended by our campground folks. If they are full the next try would be the campgrounds in the area with cabins. The Elkview has no cabins but there are places very close that do have cabins. I just talked to Tanya at No Name City which is across I90 at exit 34. She assured me that she still has cabins. Linens and towels are provided. There is a short walk to the shower house and bathrooms. They also have RV's for rent which would have bathrooms. Check out their website nonamecity.com. I will work on other options. Stay tuned

Two more cabin options:
Katmandu Campground, at exit 34 also, has 17+ cabins. It is a quiet campground - as in no loud parties. The phones 605-347-2451 or 866-776-0758 toll free.
Days End Campground, at exit 30, has 30 cabins. the advertized price for a cabin is $44 for two and $8 for each additional person. The phone 605-347-2331.

Do a search - Sturgis campgrounds and cabins. There are other places with cabins but further away.

Hi Again:
We have 115 registered for the Monumental Rally. Remember the Pre-registration ends May 31st at midnight. If your pre-registration is time stamp after midnight Mountain time you are late and it costs $10 more for each adult. FYI - We have 4 new members that have used the $69 package to join. BUT we have a bunch of new members who have joined since we opened the pre-registration. (For some odd reason I get an email when someone joins or renews.)

We are still looking for a volunteer photographer for the rally. Anyone out there want to bring their camera and take random shots of the activities and someone else to do "portraits" of the folks on there rigs like at Mountain Home, AR. I don't want to burden any one person too much so they can't enjoy the rally.

We should be rolling in to stay at Elkview on June 22nd. Sandy just bought an associate membership. She is going to bring her trike and I will have the SC rig with Beauregard as a passenger.
See you then!
Al, Sandy and Beauregard.

Helpful Rally Hints.

1. Rally preregistration will close on May 31. If you want the discount and a Tee shirt, On-line preregistration needs to be complete by then or if you are using snail mail it should be mailed NOW. Walk-in registration can be done by credit card.
2. Bringing your camp/lawn chair would be helpful. The Bluegrass concert is out doors if the weather is nice and there will be some seating but you will be more comfortable in you own chair. Same for the sidecar games. They will be held in a meadow
3. You do have Rain Gear? We have summer mountain weather. Passing Thunder Showers are a possibility.
4. Be flexible. We have mountain weather. Oh! I said that already. You may have to adjust your ride and we may have to adjust schedules and venues. We still will have a great time.
5. Questions? Check with the registration/information desk. We are locals and can help you plan rides and we have opinions on good eating places.
6. Campground prohibits glass bottles. Beverages are available at food service. You are welcome to bring your own beverages if you use cans or plastic.
7. Pets are welcome under the usual conditions. Leashes and pick up.
8. Consult the Tentative Schedule in the next post and the almost final Schedule in your rally packet when you get here.

Just called out to Elk View to tell them we are coming out - and did the registration deed....man I'm getting old - I think this is the second time I planned a ride....... Can't wait to meet all of you! Any travel tips you can offer since this will be my first rally with a sidecar rig are greatly appreciated

I am curious, after we register online, do we receive any confirmation of being registered? My wife and I are registered, but this is our first national rally, so not sure of the process.

Hi Folks:
First - Will Edwards - I hope you have gotten my 2 responses by now. Yes you and your wife are pre-registered.

A big second - We are approaching the end of the pre-registration time. The good deal is over at midnight Sunday. BUT - If you are having trouble with PayPal don't fight it, call me - 605-381-8187. Just remember that Rapid City is on Mountain daylight time. I will take your information over the phone and you can snail mail the money with the registration form. Try the PayPal system first. It will shoot me a registration form that will confirm the fact that you are wanting to pre-register.

We have close to 150 registered as I type this. It is going to be a great rally. Come prepared to have a good time, lots of visiting and great scenery.
