    GumBall Rally 2009 (PHOTO HEAVY) -Too much fun for one day!

    Well, all I can say is: “Wow! That is one tiring event”! It took all of Sunday (including a screening of “UP”) to get past the aches and tiredness of what is the Gumball Rally. Since we participated in the practice rally, we kinda knew what to expect, it was just 3 times longer!
    I was most concerned for myself and how I would be about 6pm or so, as we always spend long days at the resort, but not at such a frantic pace! Again our team (Without A Clue) was myself and my 3 kids. We had won the practice rally earlier last month, but that was MUCH smaller and a lot fewer teams. We knew we had our work cut out for us….
    Here is what the morning looked like at HoJo’s:


    Darkbeer being, well, Darkbeer!
    “The Crew”

    Leaving HoJo’s and heading to Disneyland:


    Well, it was a no brainer for the first ride:


    A compilation of ride shots throughout the day:

















    After running around like madmen (and women) all day we finally get back to the finish line ( at HoJo’s) at 7:54, and we are exhasuted. The line to turn in our packets was fairly larger (about 50 people). After listening to others, we wonder if we can make it into the top 10. We’ll have to wait and see…
    The long wait for the results, and an awesome party at Castaway Cove:









    The results are in! 2nd Place!

    To our surprise, my wife had this waiting for us when we got home!


    Thanks to all who coordinated this event this year, it was a blast and I can’t wait for next years!
