GREETINGS ALL!!

We are proud to announce some great events in store
for 2016 from your favorite numbskulls with the
NIITWIt Rally.

The NIITWIt (Not In It To Win It) Rally is for the
kind of rider who is more interested in riding some
great roads and seeing some cool stuff than in
bringing home a trophy. The basic premise is to LOSE
points in an attempt to NOT win and instead finish
with as few points as possible. Several bonuses are
for things which historically lose you points in
normal rallies such as taking a long sitdown lunch,
getting gas numerous times, and traveling less miles.

In store for 2016 are the following events:

Diet NIITWIt: an 8 hour photo bonus scavenger hunt
rally on April 2, 2016. Starting at 8:00 AM in
Irving, TX and finishing at 4:00 PM in Celina, TX (all
Central times), the rally will finish at Lucy's on the
Square in Celina at the same time as the 2nd Annual
Celina RTE. We will be doing all bonus submissions by
e-mailing in your photos so the scoring process and
time will be minimal. There will be a no-host
breakfast prior to start and a no-host dinner at the
end. The quick day of fun will not be encumbered with
t-shirts, stickers, swag, or other obtrusive items
that sometimes cause rally fees to be high. No, we
just want you to ride and have fun. Rally fees are
$25 for solo riders and $20 for 2-up (yes, you read
that correctly). The registration link can be found
on Ridemaster (https://rides.jasonjonas.com/).

NIITWIt 2016: For our big-daddy event, we are bumping
up the fun with a combined 12 hour and 36 hour rally.

Saturday Oct. 22, 2016 (Central time). The 36 hour
rally will start in Natchez, MS at 6:00 AM (Central)
on Friday Oct. 21, 2016. Both will end at 6:00 PM
(Central) at Mount Magazine State Park near Paris, AR.
The rally finish will be at the Lodge at Magazine
Mountain, a beautiful location, where we have reserved
the entire hotel for the event and will have great
food and fun at the ending banquet. Bonus e-mail

You forgot to mention that I took 1st place in the Ride to Eat category. ;)
How could I forget!!!

Many thanks to Cliff for riding up and supporting our RTE as the ONLY rider to attend the RTE that wasn't already in the rally. Yes, yes, yes. I gotta work on my advertising. It's a mental condition. I'm taking medicine for it. Thanks again, Cliff. We'll never be DGP, but we have more parking!!!!

Still accepting applications for the October 21-22 12 hour or 36 hour rallies. Application qualifications are simple:

1. Do you own a motorcycle that works?
2. Do you have a pulse?

If your answer to both questions is yes, then you're in. And of course, exceptions can be made, but if it's for #2, I'm a little worried...
