Rovers At Wintergreen

39 Mountain Inn Loop, Roseland, VA

July 16-18, 2021

Please join us for our annual spring rally. Our Rovers At Wintergreen (RAW) rally is hosted at the Wintergreen Ski Resort conveniently located in central Virginia. This location affords us access to the comforts of the resort, miles of wooded trails over scenic and challenging terrain, plus the option to enjoy fine food and drink at several of the local restaurants, breweries, and distilleries.

Health and Wellness: The 2021 will likely have some health and wellness checks at event registration and before each trail ride. This may include asking health screening questions, taking temperatures, and requesting members wear face coverings when indoors. Due to the constantly changing pandemic environment, we will issue more complete guidance closer to the event. Please remain flexible and we encourage everyone to get vaccinated.

 

Registration: Registration costs are $99 (early registration) for the first vehicle ($25 for each additional vehicle per family). Early registration closes on Friday, July 2, 2021 and the price goes up after that. The base registration includes one vehicle, one adult meal ticket, one raffle ticket, and one t-shirt.

 

Late and on-site registration costs will be $120 for the first vehicle. Late registration includes one vehicle and one raffle ticket. There may be additional meal tickets and t-shirts that can be purchased for additional costs on-site. Supplies will be limited and will be on a first come, first served basis.

Please note that all attendees must be current members to attend. Membership dues ($20/year) can be paid separately via the registration website, if needed. If you attended the 2020 MAR (or renewed any time after that) then your membership is still current.

Please make sure you read "The Rules" before registering.

Please note that this year's event will be capped to the first 125 registrants. This is in order to ensure we do not have too many trucks on the trails, the dinner space is not overcrowded, and everyone enjoys their experience.
