The Other Mongol Rally

Posted by: Scott In: Pre-Rally

Mongolia Charity Rally 2009

Believe it or not, there are actually two Mongol Rallies: the proper one, and a copycat one unimaginatively named the Mongolia Charity Rally. It’s a long story, but this additional rally was formed by former Mongol Rally affiliates that were unhappy with the way the original rally was being handled. The Mongolia Charity Rally‘s entry fee is less than half of the official Mongol Rally, and there are no age or engine restrictions for the vehicles involved (which leads to some teams going all-out in custom Land Rovers…a bit too prudent for my taste!).

Euchre Tournament Success!

Posted by: Scott In: Pre-Rally

Thanks to all of you that came out nd attended our Euchre Fundraising Tournament last Saturday. Everyone had a good time and we managed to raise a fair amount of money for our charities.

Only a few more days to go… Scott still doesn’t have his passport as it seems to be taking longer than usual to get through the Uzbek Embassy. The car has been picked up and ready to go, but the check engine light came back on for some unknown reason. Also, the original title seems to be stuck in US customs…we need to it take the car past the European Union. It’s always something!

We are very close to our fundraising goal of $9000. If there’s anyone out there that wants to donate and hasn’t done it yet please go ahead and do so! We will be accepting donations through the end of the rally (and maybe a bit past that, into September).

Send-Off Party Success!

Posted by: Scott In: Pre-Rally

Thanks to all of you that came out on Monday night to support us! We had a great turnout and raised a lot of money for charity.

Special thanks goes to Cheryl Savage, Lorene McVey, and the Lakes Area Rotary Club for helping us create and sell the Mongol Rally Guys T-Shirts. Also need to thank local artist Julie Dawson for the wonderful artwork she donated for our silent auction. And, of course, thanks to the staff at BD’s Mongolian BBQ in Novi and general manager Julie Yohe for the great service and also the generous contribution to our charities.

Pictures of the event have been posted in the Gallery, go take a look!

Mongol Rally Guys Uptown Grill Fundraiser

Thanks to all of you that came out to the Uptown Grille last night for our pre-send-off event—we had a great time! We have posted a couple of pictures in the gallery from the event.

Be sure to mark the evening of Monday, June 8th (next week) on your calendar—it’s our largest, most important event. Both guys will be manning the grills to cook everyone dinner, and we will have a 50/50 raffle and a silent art auction. If you weren’t able to come last night for some reason be sure to come this time and wish Scott “bon voyage” on his trip to the UK next week.

June 1st Party @ Uptown Grille

Posted by: Scott In: Pre-Rally

We have organized two major events before we head over to the UK. The second is on Monday, June 8th at BD’s Mongolian BBQ in Novi—details are above. The first one is a week beforehand, on June the 1st at Uptown Grille in Commerce Township, Michigan.

No tickets or RSVP needed—just come out anytime after 6PM and order as much food and drinks as you want, a portion of the revenue will be going towards our cause.

So please be sure to come out, bring your friends, bring your family. If you have never been before, Uptown Grille is a very big bar & restaurant with an amazing selection of beer and some of the best steaks in town. Looking forward to seeing everyone there!
