A rally update from the organizers of STR 2007:
It’s not too late to register for STR 2007 in Chattanooga! While the block of reserved rooms has been filled at the host hotel, the rally itself is NOT full!
REGISTRATION & LODGING UPDATE:
Although The Chattanoogan Hotel will be "Rally Central" for the three day event, as of July 1st the initial block of rooms reserved for STR were filled . Therefore, for those who did not register before the rally rate increase on July 1st, there are now several lodging and rally registration package options that will also be extended to teams who are already registered for the event.
In addition to the All-Inclusive STR 2007 Registration Package, a NEW Rally-Only Registration Package is being offered at $230.00 that includes everything except Friday and Saturday night lodging.
To register for the Rally and take advantage of the Rally-Only registration package, please make your own hotel arrangements and send in your registration form. There are several hotels located near The Chattanoogan and you are welcome to make your own reservations to suit your needs, preferences, and budget. The organizers have also secured a block of rooms at the downtown Hampton Inn with a pre-tax rate of $79/night. More information can be found at the STR Website: http://www.thetandemlink.com/STR.html
For those looking to move to or from the All-Inclusive STR 2007 Packge...
- The STR 2007 registration form includes a block where Teams can indicate their desire to stay at The Chattanoogan: check that block! The organizers are maintaining a list of folks who are interested in the all-inclusive STR 2007 package and will contact teams on the waiting list to fill any vacancies at The Chattanoogan should they become available.
- For Teams that have paid for the all-inclusive STR 2007 rally registration package but who are interested in the Rally-Only package, please contact the organizers immediately and let them know that you would like to make your room available to someone on the waiting list.
Pending additional demand for the All-Inclusive Rally Package, the organizers will coordinate the changes in rally registration options between the teams and adjust registration fees accordingly.

ROUTE PLANNING UPDATE:
The organizers have just about finalized the routes for the Rally and so far they've found some great riding that includes options for flat riding along the river, rolling valley riding, moderate climbing, and knee busting, gut wrenching, smack your mama kind of hilly routes: as strange as it sounds, that does appeal to some teams - and they know who they are.
