This year's rally will be called the Historic Harvest Rally because the locations
you'll be searching for will remind you of a simpler time, when farming was a labor
of love, and rural life centered around faith and family. We will be exploring small
towns and back roads where you'll find remnants of those traits. So don't miss this
chance to visit old farms, old churches, and the occupants inside as you wander the
small back-roads of the upper mid-west.
The 2015 Harvest Rally will begin at Fun Sports of Hutchinson in Hutchinson, MN. where Alvin Bertram
will be our Rally Master. The street location is 16235 State Hwy 7 E., Hutchinson, MN 55350. The
rally will end at Squeaky's Grill and Bar, Hutchinson, MN. Details follow.
The Harvest Road Rally will be capped at 50 riders, excluding hosts, volunteers and staff.
The rally participants will receive their rally packets via email on the Wednesday evening
before the rally. This early packet will not have point values and it will be missing some
key information involving how you will play the game on Saturday. It will have GPS coordinates
for the bonus locations and will allow you to have the bonus locations plotted on your map
or software prior to the riders meeting.
Friday Evening Get Together:
Friday evening before the rally Fun Sports will be hosting a optional pre-rally checkin and informal get
together. This will be held at Fun Sports. We will post more details about this soon.
Rally will begin at 6 AM Saturday morning when Rally Packets will be handed out. Riders may leave at 7 AM.
The rally will provide water and soda. Saturday morning donuts, coffee, juice, water and some fruit will be available.
The rally will end at Squeaky's Grill and Bar, 1150 Hwy 7 W., Hutchinson MN. Riders must return and check-in no later than 7 PM.
Social time will run 6:30 to 7:30. The meal will start serving at 7:30. Scoring will start as riders return. The awards will then be handed out followed by the crying in our beer. We have the banquet room reserved for the whole night and we will have a shuttle running to and from your motel/hotel all night for free.
Saturday Evening Banquet Details:
The Saturday evening post-rally banquet menu details will be posted on the forums before the rally. There is a full bar for beer and drinks but those beverages will not be provided by the GLMC.
The King Motel in Hutchinson will be our official Hotel. While the GLMC was not offered any deal,
they have very reasonable rates, $50 singles and $55 two beds. The Hotel is ideally located near
the end point. While the motel is old it is clean and has fresh sheets. You can park your motorcycle
right outside your front door. The contact number for King Motel is (320) 587-4737. Only
rooms #11 thru #23 have Internet. Other motels close to end location may be more expensive.
You are welcome to stay anywhere you want.
