2021 UnRally! Hopefully *** UPDATE ***

Recommended Posts

graydude

It is with guarded opportunism that we announce the 2021 UnRally in Cambria, California!  This event was rescheduled from 2020 and everything remains pretty much the same as far as costs.  The rally will start on Tuesday, July 27th and end with the Pizza Dinner on July 29th.  You may come Monday, July on 26th to take advantage of our  discounted rates.

 

I have no idea what the future will hold as far as our lives with COVID 19 in July.  California is currently operating on a mandatory Stay at Home Order.   I say roll the dice and hope for the best.   You can make a reservation with the lodge and cancel within 72 hours of your stay.  That's all I know.  Check out the updated webpage here for more details.  I really hope to see everyone!

So they said all the cheaper rooms are already gone and the rates they quote over the phone are more than the ones on the website....odd.

When the 2020 event was postponed I called the hotel and the person I spoke with said our reservations would be transferred over to new dates.  Hopefully she didn't give me bad info.  I'll have to phone to confirm I still have a reservation. 

 

Any way to find out what we pre-registered for with you for event merch/activities?  Don't remember what I requested/paid for.

Disregard this question.  I found the original email confirmation showing what I prepurchased. 

 

However, I guess I should ask if our original booking with you was refunded or if those of us that already registered in the past with you are still IN for same?

Nothing has been refunded to me.  I've had four or five people ask for refunds for the event.  I'm holding all the funds sent in for registration under my mattress so you are secure.

Wow, great to be optimistic.   We are still booked in, but unsure if we can get our 2 vaccine shots by July or if the border will even be open.  Calif looks to be experiencing a huge second wave.

 

Are you considering a tentative new postponement date based on something like a 80% herd immunity rate of those who have received the vaccine?

 

I see that Wash state to the south of us is also experiencing huge covid cases.

 

Qu.  Has Calif and other states put out a vaccination timeline for everyone?  

 

Here in B.C. ours came out today but I'm not sure where we sit on it.  Probably August.  Meanwhile all native people and murderers in prison have already got their second shot. Go Figure. :dopeslap:

I have not thought of a postponement date because this whole thing is a crap shoot.  I personally do not believe we will be saved by the vaccine in time for the event.  My thought and hope  is cases will have dropped to the point where California opens up to the point where we can meet but with social distancing where appropriate and proper mask protocol .  Again, this is a crap shoot. We can revise plans as we get closer to the date and the direction of the pandemic. At least we have a date and a place to work off of.

I don't care if its fully open or if we're only using room chairs in the parking lot, pulling cold drinks out of a room trashcan filled with ice.  If anybody from the BMWST.com group is going, I'm IN.  We might have to modify some things due to Covid like the pizza party, but this seems doable.

 

California currently sits at something like 50th out of the 50 states for percentage of vaccine received vs distributed so I wouldn't count on the shots opening things up by July.  Lester I know you're in a whole different boat when it comes to border crossing and Covid and you're right to be worried about it.  You've got an extra barrier to get through that we don't.  Luckily you'll know long before the 72 hr cancellation time if you need to cancel it.

I have no plans on postponing or canceling this event. As long as the lodge will accommodate us this is on. I will make this known on the website as well. This will happen as long as we have someplace to stay.  We may be eating gas station hot dogs but as long as the lodge is open we will be there.

I get to go because I got Covid and kicked it’s Ass. It beat me up for 3 days and I was fortunate enough not needing a hospital visit. I’ll still wear a mask and social distance out of respect for others. Stay safe everyone and if you think you’re getting the C19.... don’t sleep on your back. Nobody tells you this but it will force water into your lungs and cause great back discomfort.

Anyone traveling from the midwest?  I am in Michigan, and would not mind riding with someone else to the UN.  I will have had both of my shots at the end of March.

Shades of the Alpine Inn/Gunnsion CO at the first UN!

The local LEO slowly rolling his cruiser thru the parking lot... "I wish I was with you guys."
