    Fishbulb's Gumball Rally 2 / 3 year anniversary trip report

    The story of the Ralliversary weekend as told by Fishbulb

    I am late in posting this report about the big weekend of the Gumball Rally 2 event and the 3 year anniversary because, shortly after, I came down with a chest cold that took me out for a week. Well, better late than never, I decided to post my account. So sorry for the delay.


    The snowcapped mountains indicate the frigid weather of early morning Rally day


    January 26th. Gumball Rally 2 day. The weekend started early Saturday Morning. The teams were already line up at La Brea Bakery when I arrived with the coveted packets for the event. Little did I know that I would end up with what came to be know as the Ralliversary bug.


    DTD in the morning

    La Brea Bakery had kindly given us the use of the far end of their patio for teams to register and start their day. They were so accommodating.


    Circarama at the registration table


    Ashee


    Fishy and Thrax


    Pezz Lightyear and the lovely Skyway Grl


    Mmmmmm Food!


    Lovely Disneylandmom and AllAglow


    What time is it?


    WahWAH


    A quick Con Congress

    All the teams got their info and then the team captains all grouped together to hear the instructions


    Registration


    "YOU MUST RIDES THE RIDE TO GET THE POINTS"


    Rixter found a particularly strange angle to shoot from

    The starting gun was fired and the teams dispersed. That is, except the alterna team who eventually pulled in a whopping 11 points with their particular strategy of not riding things.






    Ride what?


    I love Mtngrl


    Monorail Man documents it all live

    While the teams all bolted to Fantasyland Dusty got some coffee on Main Street and I got some fruit at Tomorowland Terrace after getting Space Fast Passes with Monorail Man. We all met back up at the Fantasia Gardens which, at the last event, served as command central for two simultaneous events.

    The sticky stuck squad on Alice


    Another poor team in the Nemo queue


    Must walk, must walk


    Princess626 as a spotter in Tomorrowland


    Before the day even got started the Matterhorn went 101. Some teams had to plan accordingly.


    Brokedown Mountain

    Circarama and Tigerlilly showed up and, hearing that the Matterhorn was about to come back up, Tigerlilly and I hopped in line for a rough spin around the mountain.


    Okay isn't Tigerlilly just beautiful? And she is such a sweetheart too.


    AAAA WATER

    When I returned I found that the lovely Widow Bessler had arrived and Dusty and myself wanted to give her a tour of Tom Sawyers Island since she had never been there.


    SusieP. gets some direction from the sage one




    Big Thunder


    Dusty ran MiceChat Central during our trip to the island


    Another team having a blast

    We crossed the park and hoped aboard a raft. Our original intention was to find a great hiding place for the Where's Fishy event that was to happen for the 3 year anniversary. We would later find that mother nature had other plans.





    The band played as we arrived


    into the grotto


    Widow Bessler enjoyed the island

    We went back over to Fantasia gardens to check on Al and then gathered a group to go have lunch over in DCA at the Tratorria.


    Arriving at the restaurant we spotted one team coming in for Seasons of the vine.



    Spirit Award winners

    After a wonderful lunch with the gang we all wandered over to Paradise pier to check on the staff over there.




    Pirate Munkee Dusty and Rixter


    A brave team exiting Golden Dreams


    Safety Third leaving the Zephyr...


    and heading to Jumpin Jellyfish


    MaxandbellesMom and Demigod


    The widowBessler and Princess626


    MickeyMaxx doing his thang


    Chernabog exiting the Orange stinger


    We're having fun even though we're in Paradise


    We ran into several teams along with spotters, MaxandBellesmom, Demigod, and Photomatt.

    It was about time for me to take advantage of the Space Fast Pass I had and so I called MonoralMan. He said he would meet me over at Space so I left the group and made my way there.










    MM and I had a great time in Space but MY GOD it is in such disrepair.

    Leaving space we ran into another spotter, IndianaJen. Then the Neuhickman's stopped by.



    IndianaJen


    Another rally team


    Neuhickmans

    The day was coming to an end and my impending obligation to help score the players of the rally was on the horizon. With just a little bit of time to spare I wanted to catch one last ride. I had it in my mind to ride Mansion.

    Along the way Monorail Man and I ran into Prat55 and Mimmy, er Hubby55 and The Forbidden eye.





    Forbidden Eye

    Dustysage called. He was finished checking us into the Anabella Hotel and wanted to join us. Soon enough Dusty was by my side and the four of us went into the mansion.

    So glad to have the old Mansion back as it should be.







    It was getting cold and dark




    The last moments of the Rally and the rain began


    Penguinsoda on her way to another assignment


    And the rain continued

    We now had to high tale it to Tortilla Joes. But I was to meet IndianaJen and a few others at the Hearthstone to go over some GR procedures. It was here that I got the first martini of the night.

    Nice and warm, I headed over to Tortilla Joes and met up with Al. My crew soon followed and we waited with great anticipation for the first teams to arrive.



    CONGRATULATIONS! GIMMIE YOUR PACKET!

    The first team arrived and we began to have people line up for the Awards party.

    While a crowd continued to grow outside in the rain, our team put the finishing touches on the scoring. Circarama kindly bought me another Martini.

    With scoring finished and the night of fun ahead I ordered a third Martini and settled into a corner.



    My work was done. Onto the party

    I tried to take pics of the winning teams...


    Spirit Award goes to...


    DfrntDrmr


    Third place goes to...


    Is it October Yet?


    Second Place

    ...but my battery gave out just as Dusty announced first place.


    Oh well.

    Until part 2...



    THE END!!!

    I think your End is the same one we saw Sunday at lunch but wearing a white mini-skirt . I have told Timmy that next year we are going for the Rally portion of the program even it means working the event just to see all the wild and fun teams.

    P.S. I will unleash the Mimmy if we do not get part 2 soon!!!

    So far, so good Fishy my dear. Now let's get to the soggy second act of this play in two parts.

    It sure was a fun weekend - rain and all. It was just so wonderful to spend time with the Chatters!

    Great Trip Report, Fishbulb.

    Pictures of the snowcapped mountains are so very colorful and beautiful.

    I don't really have anything big to say this time. Just glad to see the MiceChatters having a funtime at the Rally.

    Missed seeing everyone this year.....

    Waiting for Part 2, but no hurry, the Wolfpack is a patient group.
    Mom, remember, it's not what a person is like on the outside that counts,
    it's what they are like in their HEART!

    The really sad part is that I had planned to post the video of Dusty's speech to our Liveblog, but after reviewing the tape, I knew that Dusty would have KILLED me if had posted a video shot from that angle (up his nose)!
