Final Scores

Thanks From JHCC - note to riders

First a note from the main RallyBubba:

This rally would not be possible without the great group of people who make it happen. They deserve every word of praise I can summon, yet it doesn't quite seem to be enough. This entire concept was Todd Harley Trash Witte's; it came from an AMA article last winter- and he ran with it.  There's a saying in theatre that goes something like "If it's got legs, run with it". We ran and had a blast doing it.  Why else would one go to Eastport, Grand Marais or Daytona looking for a diner?
Also, thanks to all the participants; whether you came with your best "game face" or just to have a good time. It occurs to me, there wasn't just one rally, but 80 different rallies and I was fortunate enough to get to be part of that experience.

As I sit here, there is an incredible mound of toys, cameras, and other stuff. As most of you know, we don't require a cash donation for the Johns Hopkins Childrens' Center; just the purchase of an item from a list. Almost every rider brought more than one item from that list; your generosity is simply amazing.

Here is the tally: 70 disposable cameras (plus 3 multi-packs); 2 complete 35mm camera sets; 19 journals; 12 headsets; 11 cassette tapes for children; 13 cassette tapes of "good" modern groups (including Journey, Aerosmith & Sting- yes introduction to the classics); 14 gel ink sets & 17 small writing tablets; 15 sets of Silly Putty eggs; 13 Lego sets; 17 decks of playing cards (2 Harley decks); 30 vials of nail polish; 6 pop-bead sets; 13 baby rattles (Disney seem to be the most popular); and, $95 worth of instant scratch off tickets resulting in $58 in winners (one rider purchased 4-$5 scratch off tickets and another tossed in $3 for the Super 6 lottery).

The kids at Hopkins will really appreciate your efforts. thanks- Rick.
Here are 2 photos: first one is our friend Jim Young (courtesy of Tracy Horstman); the second is of Larry Witte at the Flight 93 Memorial near Shanksville (courtesy of Todd Witte).

Results and Stories from the 2000 Rally

Well, the inaugural Mason Dixon 20-20 is in the books. Given the mere 6 week lead time, the Rally came off with very few glitches.

We gave it a good try for the World Record, twenty starters, including one 2-up, a bunch of veterans and six IBA rookies. If everyone finished, that would be enough to hold it until the upcoming Roadrunner 1000 and the fall's Gerlachfest.

 

The Route was 1057 total miles: 388 of it twisties, 600 super slab, the rest mixed. By 11am the ambient temp is in the 90's with comparable humidity- the 100 + heat indices made it feel like late August out there. Over 10 gallons of bottled water were consumed by ralliers plus an unestimatable number of gallons purchased on the road.

The forgotten gem on The Route- US 50 from Winchester, VA to Bridgeport, WV. Most of us Easterners only think of US 50 as "that multi lane/ limited access highway to get from DC to OC". If you have the chance, ride this stretch of US 50, and as you drop first off Backbone and then Cheat Mountains, remember that the Horkster coasted the whole way -- with the ignition off.

The new gems on The Route- OH 26 and OH 9. These are "must adds" to anyone's serious twisties list.

Rally Finishers- Nearly 17.5 hours later, the first riders returned; the last SS1k pulled in with 13 minutes to spare: 17 Saddlesore finishers, which should be the US record, and definitely the East Coast record- over $200 will be donated to the Fran Crane Memorial Fund. Three contributions to the "Bridgeport Policemen's Retirement Fund" were also made.

There were three DNF's, one each to a mechanical (tire), a fuel error, and an oversleep (forgot the Meanie). Five of the six rookies finished with time to spare; a very good ratio considering conditions.

 The History of the Mason Dixon 20 20

This area is under construction

Up until the Spring of 2000, the Capitol 1000 was THE rally to ride in the Mid-Atlantic.  Sadly, it ceased existence in June of that year.  Several riders who had registered for the Cap 1000  decided to ride anyway; starting at the same place (we had reservations, shame to let them go to waste and all), but there wasn't really enough time to put on a proper rally.  That's how the Mason Dixon 20-20 was born. 

We had about 20 riders show up for a very grueling Saddlesore 1000 that featured nearly 300 miles of those squiggly little roads we so enjoy as riders.  At our concluding feast, Jim Young suggested the event become a real rally and it should be done annually.  This is odd, since the rallymaster had never even entered an LD rally at this point; nevertheless, he committed to giving it the old college try in 2001, over Memorial Day weekend.  And did we; 95 riders in all, 400 bonus locations, a suicidal Ural, and numerous riders realizing that getting that last bonus in Gettysburg wasn't such a bright idea at 2 o'clock on Memorial Day Sunday.  Everyone had a great time; Jim Young, who grew up in Coudersport, exclaimed that he was on roads "up there" that he didn't know even existed.   Jim died later that summer during the Thin Air TT- he was 49.  Jim is buried at Fort Indiantown Gap National Cemetery; we visit him every Memorial Day to say "thanks for being a soldier, and thanks for making the Mason Dixon 20-20 the event it has become."  And we miss him.
