Quote from SwampFox on May 1, 2021, 6:46 am

Self-Guided "Domino Runs" for the Benefit of CASA of the Ouachita Region - $10 per Play

Jena has worked up four self-guided tours....

    Queen Wilhelmina Lodge Route      - ±41 miles all paved (with a ±12 mile unpaved optional extension)

    Rich Mountain / Three Sticks Loop - ±80 or ±87 miles all paved

    Cassatot River Loop                       - ±86 miles all paved (but maybe a little bumpy in places)

    Little Missouri Falls Loop                  - ±88 miles with 1/2 unpaved NFS gravel roads

There first two Runs and the second two Runs can be combined and run together.

Each participant will have a guide sheet (a "Run Sheet") with directions....

Jena and a representative of CASA plan to have a table set up in the CMA meeting hall to accept the Run Sheets and play the draws on Thursday 6-8pm, Friday 6-8pm, and Saturday 5-6pm.  The four winners will be announced Saturday evening.

Unfortunately, Mrs. SwampFox (Jena) &  I  are not scheduled to arrive until Wednesday afternoon (or Thursday should work toss monkey wrenches into the schedule).  BUT the Domino Run Sheets will be available:  Rally Master Jon has a few with him and Hostess Barbara plans to bring bunches of the Run Sheets on Tuesday.  The Run Sheets should be readily available in the CMA meeting hall - just "grab and go" and enjoy the local area.

Safe travels, Lee

Please be especially cautious entering and exiting CMA Iron Mountain as there is just enough rise to the South to limit the view of Northbound vehicles.

Really enjoyed chatting with every one at Coeur d'Alene. Sadly my plans have been dashed again and no cross boarder travel. Soon please let it be soon.

Taking the back roads and with the rain coming out of Denver on Monday we are running a little slower than we had planned. This is not a bad thing though. Stopped about 150 miles from Mena last night so should be pulling in about noon today.

I sure wish we could be there with you at Iron Mountain campground.  This is the first USCA national rally we've missed in many years.

A quick update, just arrive back home in Texas, final rally count was 283 attendees, beautiful riding weather two out of three days, even the Saturday Rain Parade was well attended, sidecar games were held under the roof in the huge CMA pavilion, live country music Friday night, the local church youth group raised $600 with their Friday night ice cream social, rally attendees rounded up $4000 for the local CASA children charity via games, raffles and such, three rigs arrived with for sale signs on them, two changed hands leaving with new owners, heard people are dickering on the third rig. In all a huge success thanks to the generous members of USCA. New friendships were made, old ones renewed.

Many thanks to the rally committee who spent many hours putting this event together, and to all the people who stepped forward to help thru out the rally. 

The CMA staff and volunteers were wonderful to work with, making the rally a smooth operating success with their behind to scenes efforts. 

Muchas Gracias to all those who attended or tried to attend. Was a fantastic gathering of sidecarists from across the country.

Next year the rally will be hosted by the SouthEast Region, likely in North Carolina. Watch for announcements on location and dates once they are firmed up.

p.s., please post your rally photos folks.  Let everyone know what happened in Mena this year.
