This is NOT the offical rally thread!

For the Virtual Rally for Upper Tellico, please post HERE: www.pirate4x4.com/landuse






Well, I took it upon myself to sack up and get this off the ground. I spoke with a few people and thanks to Lance, Camo and Kurt we will now be having an online rally to help save the Tellico OHV here on PIRATE!!!

The date is set at May 7th from 4-9 PM Eastern Standard Time. That's just 3 weeks away!!!! We need everyone to pull together like we did for the Hammers. I have already started posting this on numerous other boards and I'd ask you do the same. Let everyone know that they need to come out and show their support.

Go ahead and start looking through those old pics of your rig at Tellico and start thinking about those stories you've had. We need them all and we need you to post them at the Rally on May 7th. In the days to come we will be sending out press releases and getting the media's attention. I will also be giving everyone more information about the area and what's going on.

Please stay tuned and start spreading the word. I'll be putting a link in my sig line on all the boards I frequent. Also, if you have any questions post up.

Thanks in advance to everyone :beer:

edit: I spoke with a buddy of mine and he said that he wasn't 100% sure what he needed to do. This is the step by step procedure:

1) Sit at computer on May 7th between 4-9 PM Eastern Time
2) Go to the Tellico OHV Rally thread (it will be a dedicated thread solely for the Rally and nothing else)
3) Post a picture and/or a story about your good times at Tellico
4) Wrote why you think Tellico should remain open and give positive comments
5) Sit back and enjoy other stories and pics as they come in
6) That's it!

Thanks for taking the initiative and putting this together.

Post up the press release when it's done so we can all pass it along to our local media.

It will take a few days for the press release.

Once that is out we NEED as many people as possible to spread the word. I do not know many of the east coast boards, so we really need you guys out there to spread the word, not just online, but in 4x4 shops, on the trail, at functions etc....

Keep it up :mr-t:

Good work guys!

Can't promise....but I will TRY to get the press release done by late tonight.

You may have to go back to all those boards and bump the threads you posted with that press release.

We (The Damn Locals) were at the Save Tellico Event in the rain and we are having a fund raiser comming up this summer for Save Tellico, we also take up funds at each of our Damn Locals meeting just for this. Thanks for linking us. I just sent Lance my 20 bucks for my red star.

that's my plan as of right now. also, that's another good reason for posting the links up.

Damn Locals, I thought I remembered hearing about you guys there. I was the one with the POS orange Cherokee during the rock challenge. Wish we could have met up. Keep us posted about the fund raiser as well.

OK,

Looks like the rally will be May 7th from 4 to 9pm (east coast time)

That would make it from 1 to 6pm on the west coast.
