This just in from our good friend Malcolm Boyd: the 2013 ETR rally schedule & a new look for their Website!
The Eastern Tandem Rally organization is pleased to release its rally schedule for 2013. The Spring Thaw rally, co-sponsored with the PPTC, is scheduled for April 18-21 in Cambridge, Maryland and registration is now open. Our MATES rally is scheduled for June 7-9 in New Hope, Pennsylvania, and our namesake Eastern Tandem rally is scheduled for August 2-4 in Warren, New Jersey. The Eastern Tandem Offroad Rally is also planned for a return to South Jersey’s Pine Barrens, but a date has not yet been set. We invite you to join us at one of our rallies this year!Additionally, we are in the process of revamping our website at http://www.easterntandemrally.org; we replaced our old site over the weekend. Many thanks to our volunteers, Beth Potier, webmaster Mike Bianco, Knapp Hudson, Neil Larson, and Al Cudworth for their hours of work on this. This is a full WordPress rewrite of the site, and includes pages for each of the rallies, new and old. A lot more history of the organization and rallies is featured, in a much cleaner presentation.A fun little feature of the History section of the website is identifying attendees at old rallies. A number of group photos from ETR rallies past are posted, and a series of these have had each person in the picture individually hand-numbered. A table of the folks already identified in each shot accompanies the photo, but the majority of attendees are not yet identified. Were you or your friends there? We invite you to look through these pictures (ETRs 1979, 1981, 1984, 1987, 1994, 2008, 2009, and 2011) and help us identify the attendees; we’ll post your responses as updates to the tables of names. If you have photos or content from our old rallies we invite you to send them to us, and we will seek to include them, too, properly credited where possible. Thanks for your help!Regards,Malcolm BoydPresident, Eastern Tandem Rally
