For those who don't pre-register and just show up at
the rally, here are a few things to keep in mind:
1. I hope to have a couple of GPS "data wrangler"
volunteers on hand to load routes onto GPS units, but if
you want to use your GPS at FlyBy Week, you would be
wise to choose the ones you are interested in and load
them before you come to the rally. If you have a netbook or
notebook computer, be sure to bring it with you and
download the latest updates at the rally. While you're at it,
you could also VOLUNTEER to help!
2. If you are a paper map and turn-by-turn printed route
person, there will NOT be stacks of pre-printed routes
available at sign-up. Each route is 4-8 pages, and including
variants there are about 20 routes. There is no way we can
have copies on hand, so IF YOU WANT TO USE PAPER
ROUTES, PRINT THEM AT HOME BEFORE YOU COME
TO THE RALLY!
3. While you are online getting route info and files, why not
GO AHEAD AND REGISTER ONLINE? That way our
volunteers won't have to work so hard at event signup.
THANK YOU for your cooperation!
We have over 60 members pre-registered already. The hotel
is filling up fast so you need to BOOK YOUR ROOM ASAP!
There is great interest in the Monday-Thursday Dinner Tours,
so the Marietta Trolley will be very busy taking groups of
diners to the restaurants of their choice. Early in the week with
a smaller group, we'll probably all go to a single restaurant
each evening, but on we already have 40 people interested in
the Thursday dinner tour. Looks like we'll be filling up multiple
restaurants in town!
