Scooting the Ozarks 2012, Eureka Springs, AR

Postby Tressa on Sun Nov 27, 2011 2:00 pm

The results are in! Surveys were sent to those who attended STO 2011 and the answers have been posted. STO 2012 is already taking shape, with some suggestions from the survey being incorporated into the new agenda. Visit the forum www.scoottheozarks.proboards.com to check out the survey results and the evolving agenda.

Add your suggestions and volunteer to help with organizing a great rally. I have found that being involved with the planning and helping with the activities at the rally are part of the fun of Scooting the Ozarks. Planning and preparation for activities are done well in advance so that during the rally volunteers are free most of the time to just have fun.

Happy New Year! Registration for STO 2012 is now open. Get that new calendar out and add the Scooting the Ozarks Rally to your plans for 2012. STO welcomes all scooter riders, and is a “riders rally”, so you can expect opportunities to ride in the Ozark twisties each day of the rally.

Take advantage of STO’s “early bird registration” and mail yours before March 1, when registration goes up $10.

Also reserve your room early while you still have a choice of room type. There will be a MAJOR Razorback football game on Saturday, Sept. 15 so rooms may be hard to find for Friday and Saturday if you don’t make a reservation early. You must reserve by phone and mention STO to get the special room rates at the host hotel.

Message from STO Rally Coordinator:

If you haven't registered for the rally yet, pre-registrations must be postmarked by April 30 to enjoy a reduced registration cost!!!

If you haven't been to the rally forum lately, make sure to stop by and check out the new ride ideas that have been posted. Also, the 2012 STO t-shirt and other items are now available at the STO Cafe Press store. Feel free to join in the chat sessions, esp. on Monday nights (8:30pm CST), where the world's problems for the week are always solved.

Riding weather is in full swing in the Ozarks! Ride safe, and we hope to see you in September.

With the soaring temps we have been having, and more hot weather ahead, I'm really looking forward to Scooting the Ozarks in September, when it should be cooler. The STO ride coordinator has some great routes mapped out for us. Check them out on the forum. The host hotel is giving STO attendees a great discount off their regular rates, but reservations must be made by AUG.12 to get the discount. Deadline to pre-register for the rally, and save $10, is Aug. 31.

The Fifth Annual Scooting the Ozarks Rally was another great rally. Over 60 people attended from 17 states and Canada. 75% rode their bikes in, including two riders from California and one from Ontario.

Wednesday we had great riding weather for self-formed groups. Everyone was free to choose where, and with whom, to ride. That evening there was a Welcome Dessert Reception in the breakfast room of the Comfort Inn. We all enjoyed great pie and soft drinks or coffee, and lots of visiting with friends old and new.

Thursday was the long guided ride. Five groups headed out on a ride of about 200 miles. (For safety, groups are limited to a maximum of 10 bikes at STO.) Thursday evening we gathered for a group photo, then again entered the breakfast room, this time for pizza. A Safe Ride Seminar with Jean Bartlow followed for those who wanted to attend.

Friday was the poker run and a guided small scoot ride. Clouds had come in and we had light rain off and on Friday. Karaoke in the breakfast room on Friday evening was hilariously funny at times. Rack, Eric and EuGene, along with volunteers from the audience, were great entertainment.
We had fun with the Show and Shine in light rain Saturday. Following the Show and Shine was the barbecue. Poker Run and S & S prizes were awarded, along with more door prizes. Following was a brief discussion about STO 2013. Dates for the next rally were tentatively set for Sept. 18-21, 2013.

I’ve posted photos and a brief video here: http://youtu.be/23_-68X_etQ Photos and videos from others who attended can be found here: http://www.scoottheozarks.proboards.com ... thread=994
