Yes it is true.

Sorry for not posting on here sooner. After posting on several sites Saturday I was flooded with emails, calls and texts from vendors and sponsors. I forgot to get over here.

We have started working on the 2012 Rally and info will be posted as we can.

From local board.....

Hi all, Much info can be seen on the NEA forum as to why we had to cancel. I'll sum it up here for those w/o access.

We maintained a tight budget so we could donate as much as possible to the charity's. That being said, this year the Fairgrounds increased the rent by $750 and the security by $500. Thats an extra $1,250 right there.

The Insurance company set this years premium at around $1,100. Thats about a $700 increase over the past few years.
We needed to stay with the company that the NEA uses OR the premium would have been over $6,000.

The insurance company's also tightened the reigns and wanted jersey barriers and crown control fencing between the rocks and crowd. Renting water filled jersey barriers would have been over $750 not to mention filling them and the mess it would make emptying them.

So, as you can see it was a cumulation of things that put us way over budget and ability's. We are all volunteers after all and can only do so much.

After this fiasco I am stepping away to pursue other interest. That was the plan before the SHTF. Josh is staying on to try to make it happen in 2012. Likely in a new location where barriers are already there.

Sorry we couldn't make it happen for 2011.

Checking out a couple of possible new locations in a couple of weeks and have a few others lined up to check out also. Hoping to have a new place lined up before Christmas.
