Default Sandblast Rally - Feb 6 in Patrick, SC

http://sandblastrally.com/2010/index.php

Who's in??? Great rally in the sand hills of SC. Lots of excellent bike and rally car action, some hairy spots for the spectators to gather "will 'e make it???", and the Red Bull Girls present ain't bad either...

Several of us trailered down last year (was sub-freezing in the AM), and had a great time riding around on the sand roads not blocked off for the rally - and sometimes completely off any road of any sort... Definitely a different kinda riding than rocks/mud/grass/gravel, we really enjoyed it

UPDATE - the Rally starts at 8AM in Patrick SC. It's a tiny town, you'll find it...

I'm goin'

At the November pizza meet at Hawthorne's, Sgt. Mike from ADV talked to me about volunteering as a Marshal or whatever, so I signed up. I have a room reserved at the Cheraw Inn for Friday and Saturday nights. Not sure if I'll ride or drive - depends on weather - but I'm up for making it a group thing!

Hey Brendan - you going to the MC show in Greenville on Saturday?

I have it on the calendar and plan on being there. BPG is right, riding in the sand is an absolute hoot.

bump for a great day of spectating and riding. Might ride down if it's a nice day, or get out the big ol' cattle hauler if it's frigid. Definitely planing on having a bike there, regardless - too much fun zipping around on the sand roads and trails between spectator stages.

oh yeah - for the Manchester attendees: no to little "sand whoops"; it's pretty smooth riding except for the occasional rut. Still aching from some of those landings on Sunday, LOL!

WOW!

I think that I recognize the back of some of those heads!



Unfortunately I'm still working Saturdays so I won't make it this time around....


Just a word of caution to those going....I know this could happen anywhere but:

We had our backs turned just like in that pic...with our riding gear just draped over the handlebars, and when we went back to our bikes that were less than 50 yds away myself and another had our riding jackets stolen and another had his $500 Arai helmet swiped.


Have fun!! and take lots of pics and video!!

You can't come unless it's under 20 degrees outside, remember? Or at least, as soon as you say you're hitting Charlotte, the forecasted temps drops drastically...

Unless BPGXX and Mach VIII are fighting again. Then one of them will be sleeping on the couch!
