» 2012 ROT Cart Rules
Posted: 01/04/2012 03:45 PM
Over the past few weeks there has been much discussion about the new cart rules. They started out one way and have morphed into another. This is a summary of the new rules.
If you want to rent a cart, you will have to make your own arrangements and have it delivered to the rally. There are guidelines for this in the official rules FAQs.
All the old threads on this topic are being locked because many of them contain erroneous information. If you want to reference an old post, just copy and paste it into your post so your concern may be addressed.
Hopefully, this will make it all less confusing. :)

Thank you Spirit for keeping us updated on these new rules. Now that they have this finalized we can move on to bigger and better things. Now people can make up their minds knowing what is to be expected. I know I'm ready to get it going and see just how this new rule changes things either for the better or worse it's time to move on with it. And can't wait to have my new jello shots tried and tested by the pros of ROT partyers. LOL

Be sure and deliver one of those jello shots to Purple C3. :)
(or tell me where to collect it! lol)

With all that has been going on over this cart B.S. I have over looked one thing. That is the fact that some people do care about the other people that attend the rally. Despite the fact that I am still not going. I would like to thank Spirit for all she has done on the message boards and at her meet and greets. I will truely miss the party at their camp site. So to that end I say THANK YOU SPIRIT AND TIM.

Aw, thanks Kickshot - and you're welcome. I sure wish ya'll would reconsider. Its gonna be real weird not having friends I'm used to seeing not be there. But, as you know, I fully understand your reasoning. Maybe in 2013, things will be different. Hope to see you at other rallies....and stay online! You don't have to attend to post with us. :D

I would like some clarification on what they consider a cart? It states no UTV/ATV so does that mean if I pay 20.00 I can have a motorized bar stool? what about a go cart?
Posted: 01/06/2012 08:37 PM
carts with lift kits? big tires? custom carts?

bambam, I have not heard of any restrictions on the carts being modified.

RocketIII I love the idea for the differnet colored wrist bands for the military no matter what the age limit is!!! Not sure if I remember this right... but I think I rememeber us getting a different salute at the gate upon entering the base after my Dad retired (3 years Army and 20 + yrs USAF retired).

Now that's a great idea Rocket. To be able to see the wristband colors and know, would be perfect for our military men and women.

i have already renewed my rv space and i have a golf cart,im happy with the final results of the cart fiasco but i still say that this will put more drunks on two wheels and its an invitation for accidents, at least with all the atv/utv's and trailers, most of the drunks were on them and being chaufered, now if they want to get away from their campsites and see the whole party going on they will jump on two wheels, not a good thing but i am willing to give this year a chance and see what happens as i love the ROT rally! i think that either the parade route will be a ghost town or filled with idiots on two wheels

We are assuming drunks will ride 2 wheels. If groups of 10 used to bring one cart and a trailer, they may bring 3 carts instead and still stay off the bikes. Or a cart and motorized coolers. Or a couple of minibikes. Just because they can't have a trailer doesn't mean automatically they will get on a motorcycle. Transportation may be more creative than we've ever seen with people trying to circumvent the no trailer/utv/atv rules. Could get interesting! :D

I do believe there are to many atv and four wheelers but i dont watch the parade to see a bunch of guy on motorcycles if that what they want so be it. i would like to see slower speeds more women looking for beads. i have a motorcycle and dont want to see a bunch of guys on motorcycles riding around. i guess i just get more sleep or find where the women go.
