With the changes in alert levels and moving to the new traffic light system we have had a number of questions about whether we will be able to hold the event. Due to the nature of the event we are able to hold it under Green and Orange levels with vaccine passes being used. We are committed to keeping this going and believe that we can mitigate many of the issues that have caused other rallies to cancel due to the unique nature of this rally. Today we processed the 150th entry to the event, so it is shaping up to be a great one. The iPhone app is live in the app store however there is a bug in it relating to the taking of the photos. Apple has changed the privacy settings and the app needs adapting to work with the newer iOS. We hope to have this sorted in December when Shannon has free time in the holidays so stay tuned for the update. We will let you know when that is sorted and the scoresheets are ready to go. Enjoy the lead up to Xmas and encourage your mates to join us on this great adventure.
Hope your planning is going well.
We have had to make a change to the Tasman/Marlborough compulsory checkpoints due to road damage during the storms earlier in the year. So Waitaria Bay School has been replaced with Waikawa Bay School. If you are disappointed about missing all the twists and turns going out to Waitaria Bay, may I suggest the Robin Hood - Oyster Bay route might suffice!
We have had a number of questions about the the impact of Covid on the event, and although we can’t plan too far out - we have taken this into account for our preparation and we would still be able to hold the event under alert level 2 (as it stands now) as we have a large number of physical areas that we can use for the start and also a number of starting locations if it came to that to ensure that we were able to operate with the limits on any gatherings that may be in place. We will be monitoring the situation and will update you closer to the time on any changes or adaptations that may be needed.
The TT App is going through the final stages of preparation and testing and should be available on the App Store in the next couple of weeks.
Dodson Street Beer Garden has offered to host our pre event get together and evening meal. They serve a great variety of beers, food and they have a great atmosphere - the perfect place for kicking back and relaxing before the big off. They are located next to a large parking space so there will be plenty of room for all those who have indicated their interest. Check them out on their Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/DodsonStreetBeerGarden/ Always a good sign when you turn up to a pub and the owner has his bike parked out front!
Welcome to you all and thank you for registering to take part in the TT2000 for 2022. I hope that you are all as excited as we have been as we prepared it. We intend to send out regular emails just as was done in the past to update you on the event, road conditions and news. We will also include questions that might come up, so feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions that you might have. Mark and Shannon have worked with Wayne to transition the event as he steps away from running the event. We appreciate the work he and Mike have done in setting up and running the event in the past and we hope to continue that tradition.
