Rovers At Wintergreen

39 Mountain Inn Loop, Roseland, VA
April 18 - 21, 2024

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.

Registration: Registration costs are $160 (early registration) for the first vehicle ($50 for each additional vehicle per family). Early registration closes on Friday, April 5, 2024 and the price goes up after that. The base registration includes one vehicle, one adult meal ticket, one raffle ticket, and one t-shirt. THIS EVENT IS SOLD OUT. You are still able to purchase meals and t-shirts.

 

Late and on-site registration costs will be $200 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 2023 MAR (or renewed any time after that) then your membership is still current. (Do you have a ROAV sticker with 2024 across the bottom?)

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.

Attendees are encouraged to contact the Wintergreen Resort group reservation telephone number at 434-325-2200, dial "0" for the operator and ask for the "groups department" Monday through Friday, 9:00am to 5:00pm, to make their own reservations.

The club will have a very limited amount of coffee, juice, muffins, and fruit available at the Commonwealth Ballroom on Saturday and Sunday mornings included as part of your paid registration.
