We're getting a lot of interest in the 2021 Rally. People are wanting to get out and ride after being shut in for 2020. I know I am.

The rally pavilion at Iron Mountain is huge so social distancing will not be an issue.  Camp sites are dispersed. There are both guided on-road and off-road rides planned.  Or grab a map and strike out on your own. Southwest Arkansas has some of the most beautiful country for our type 0f riding. The people are very welcoming of motorcycle riders and looking forward to seeing what kinds of sidecars we show up with. 

Hope y'all can find your vaccine shots, then head on over to Mena, Arkansas the first week-end in June. 

Regional Director Lee Coltharp and the South Central Region are looking forward to making everyone feel welcome. 

 

I know we are really looking forward to the rally. I just hope I can have my rig back together by then

If we show up Wednesday or maybe even Tuesday can we stay at the campground for the early day or two?

 

DirtyDR, no problem but...    be aware we will most likely put you to work. Volunteers are always welcome at rallies. 

See you in Mena.

 

No problem on the working I would expect no less.

Hi All,

John, Jo and Marly, 

Welcome to USCA and to the National Rally. You will see a huge variety of sidecar rigs at the rally, as individual as their owners. 

There are some great unpaved roads for exploring in that area of Arkansas. Be prepared, we are planning guided on and off road rides.

Hi. Just registered at campground. Aparentlygot last pull-thru. They said there was a large turn out. Sound good. See all of you there.

J.R.

Texas rep.

Talked to Lee (swamp fo0x)  about replacing me with David Johnson. Should be in the works by now. Age (86) and heart problem prompted  the change.  Avanell (90) and I   will still be riding until old age catches up with us.

Sorry to here your leaving.  See you at the rally.

J.R., looking forward to seeing you and Avanell in Mena. All your friends will be there too. This rally is shaping up to be quite the gathering. What is nice is the pavilion and the campgrounds are spacious so no problem for those wanting to social distance... or even anti-social distance of 20'.

What's the body count so far?

You might think about updating thread on advrider with that info too

Duncan, covid is not keeping people away from the rally. Looks like all of the cabins and most of the RV spots are taken.  Call 601-260-1822 if you have not booked your spot yet.

Still have plenty of FREE tent camping spots. If you have small camper or trailer that does not need utility hookups, that counts as a tent, so it's FREE.

We're at 190 attendees this morning, not checked today's mail. Are estimating somewhere between 250 and 300 total for the rally, depending on weather. Even if weather turns sour, we have indoor events planned, prizes, awards and lots of door prizes. 

Can people just show up, still register and pay at the door? Yes, the rally fee stays the same with no rally shirt though. We have to have sizes by May 10th to order the correct number of shirts in each size. This year the rally shirt is a better quality Qwik-Dri fabric, easy to clean, drys fast, cool for southern riding.

There are no day passes or meal tickets this year.  

The rally kicks off on Thursday June 3rd, 8 A.M. Anyone is welcome to arrive a day or so early, make sure your camp site is available, we might ask you to volunteer with setting up.  Rally volunteers are always welcome for setup, during and take down on Sunday. 

Pre-registration cut off is in three weeks, May 10th. Make sure you have registered by May 10th to get a rally shirt included with your Rally fee. 

Long term weather forecast is looking good for June in Mena. 

See you there.

Thanks for info. Glad to see it on advrider too - Sounds like it is going to be a great rally.

I checked and our reservation from last year is still intact - but I couldn't find any information on Rally shirts for me and my accompanying life manager. Is there any way to tell if we ordered shirts and if so, what sizes?

Thanks

Great. MM and I were too late last year to get a cabin at campgrounds and nothing has opened up this year so we are staying in a B&B downtown. Hoping that my rig rig will be back together in time for Rally; if not we will be on 4 wheels.

looking forward to seeing all.

Duncan, it shows one XL and one L for you two.

Now get that rig together, would like to see it finished and on the road.
