Support for Eddie's Road and Boobiker: Just some additional information about our support for two charitable causes. Eddie's Road is a program for at-risk youth, administered by Lisa Erbes in memory of the late Eddie James of Team Strange, rally rider and rallymaster extraordinaire. Lou (boobiker) Sanchez is a fellow rider and gold member of the Motorcycle Tourers Forum who lost his leg when a car hit him nearly head-on in 2010. He is finally able to ride again, a Trike, but he needs an electric shift, which will cost about $1000. We would like to help him toward that goal. Rally bonus points are available for contributions! If you contribute to Eddie's Road, you get 500 points. If you contribute to Boobiker's electric shift, that's another 500 points. These voluntary contributions are listed in the registration fees, and the minimum for each is $5.00. If you want to contribute more, just change the quantity from 1 to 2, or 3, or whatever.

If you have already registered for the rally, and decide later that you want to contribute in order to earn bonus points, you may contribute on line and present your receipt at scoring to earn the points.
