Today is the day! Yep, just one month until the USCA Rally in Duluth!Time is running out to get your preregistration in. You can go to http://www.sidecar.com/rally.asp for more information and a link to the preregistration form. This is the 30th annual USCA rally and it’s gonna be a big one. The campground is really dynamite with lots of shade, clean restrooms and an all weather structure that all ours in case of rain. Temperature-wise this WILL NOT be a repeat of Beaver. Temps are “moderate” in Duluth in June with an average high a very comfortable 70° F while the low is a crisp 48° F. That’s right, warm in the day and cool enough for great sleeping at night.
I’m not making any promises but here is the PROPOSED schedule for the rally. We might make some changes but right now this is the way it looks like things will go.

It means we really don’t have a set time for this but it will happen when it seems right. ‘Might depend on the aggregate zeitgeist, ‘might depend on the time it turns dark or pretty much anything that’s out of our control.
