April 1, 2001

Fellow bikers,

This is the 4th Super Rally 2001 Newsletter.

After a short winter of two months the summer came again and we are wondering where did spring go! Last week we had the highest temperatures in Greece for 50 years, varying from 25 to 35 C. We will have some water problem during the summer but don't worry, we already secured the necessary water supply for the Super Rally.

In this newsletter we synopsize all available information for our Super Rally. Most of this information has already been sent to some of you but our mailing list has become much larger since the last newsletter so...

All information can also be found in our official site www.super-rally.gr which is in 5 languages and is counting now more than 35.000 visitors.

Super Rally 2001 Program

The final program will be available on the Internet soon, but here are some highlights:

a.. Live music all night long (Blues, Rock, Rock 'n Roll, Country)

b.. DJ music all day long

c.. Live Music on Friday and Saturday afternoon

d.. Thursday night BLUES WIRE maybe the best blues band in Europe (they are Greek!)

e.. Friday night DIXIE PEACH a great group from Norway and DOCTOR FEELGOOD from UK

f.. Saturday night ZOO a great rock band from Greece and BILLY GORDON AND THE BLUE ROCKERS from USA (Daytona Bike Week, Sturgis, Laconia)

g.. Strip tease every night

h.. Water sports and games all day long (water tower, water banana, water tubes, water parachuting, bungee jumping)

i.. Mud Wrestling, Wet T-shirt contests

j.. Biker Games (Electric Bull Riding, Longest beard contests, Biggest Belly contests, Beer Contests, Slow Races, The sausage and mustard game)

k.. Beach games and parties every day

l.. Big Bike show on Saturday noon

m.. Lottery for a Big Twin Saturday night

In the last newsletter I told you that we were trying to have Lynard Skynard but finally they were far too expensive. Sorry.

Features

a.. Biker's Market all day long

b.. Sightseeing tours

c.. Big Music Stage on the beach (the stage on the water that we promised is technically impossible)

d.. 8 entrances for avoiding big queues

e.. Secured exit

f.. Security personnel

g.. Security bracelets on bikers and bikes

h.. Many food and beer selling spots

i.. Big tent for food

j.. Many toilets and showers

Entrance and camping

There will be a special Super Rally 2001 booth in selected Ferries of Minoan Lines from Ancona and Venice to Igoumenitsa (not all). There, you will be able to pay for the Super Rally Entrance fee and save time on your entrance.

The entrance cost will be 17.000 GRD or 50 EURO (for every person). You must pay with Greek Drachmas at the Entrance. The fee includes entrance, camping for all days, security bracelets, 3 breakfasts, pin, Super Rally program, Lottery ticket for a Big Twin, and participation to all Super Rally events and attractions (some water games will have a small extra cost). Camping will be open for the Super Rally from Monday 28 May until Monday 4 June, though Super Rally services and events start from Thursday 31 May. For extra days (before 28/5 and after 1/6) you may have to pay a small amount to the camping owners. Unfortunately it is impossible to pre-register and reserve a camping space. It would be too much work to reserve tent space for every individual. Nevertheless special stuff will be available to guide people to free camping spaces and give instructions on where and how to camp at that time.

Food-Beer

(341 Drachmas = 1 EURO)

Everything will be bought with traditional Harley Dollars. Each Harley Dollar will cost you 300 Drachmas (0,87 EURO).

Food will cost about 6 Harley Dollars (5,3 EURO complete menu) and will include Greek Cuisine. Beer will cost 2 Harley Dollars (1,7 EURO 400ml).

 

Italy-Greece Ferry Information

The Italy-Igoumenitsa lines are the recommended way to come to the Super Rally.

Tickets

Many ships are already full. Most of the ship cabins are already reserved, but traveling on the deck is not so bad on a ship full of bikers. We think that all of you will have a great party on the ships before you get to the Super Rally! You will find the addresses of European and Greek agents as well as online reservation info below.

Company: MINOAN LINES

Minoan Lines is an official sponsor of Super Rally 2001. We highly recommend this ship company for your transportation from Ancona and Venice (Italy) to Igoumenitsa (Greece) because of its support to us, its big discounts to you and its high standards of service and security. The company promised that they will also have ferry from Brindisi and they confirmed that today. So the discount which apply for Venice and Ancona are valid for Brindisi line too. The trip from Brindisi is much shorter and much cheaper, but you have to travel to South Italy to get to Brindisi. Timetable and prices for Brindisi will be available in our site in the next few days in http://www.super-rally.gr/ferry_boat.htm

Ticket Remarks: HDSR

You will have to issue your tickets with special printed remarks (the code HDSR on the "remarks" area of the ticket). This way you will get your discount and privileges and we will be able to control the expected visitors numbers in order to make the best arrangements. It will help if you have your Harley Davidson papers with you to prove you own an H-D so the agents know that you are really coming to the Super Rally to give you the discount.

Discount: 20%

Minoan Lines offers a discount of 30% to the return ticket for ALL the tickets that are bought aller-retour. The discount that Minoan Lines offers for Super Rally 2001 visitors is an extra 20% on all person's tickets. Bikes and cars have NOT this extra discount. The discount is valid only for people with HDSR-remarked-tickets and it applies to all seats and classes (LUX cabins or Deck etc.). The 20% extra discount is only for traveling between the following dates: 22 May 2001 to 12 June 2001.
