2021 Dog Daze Rally - Yooper Edition

2021 Dog Daze Rally – Yooper Edition
Saturday, August 21, 2021
Indianhead Mountain at Big Snow Resort

Come join us for what promises to be a fantastic day of riding in the beautiful Upper Peninsula of Michigan (and Wisconsin and even a bit of Minnesota if you’re looking to stretch your legs). Make new friends with similar interests. Catch up with riders you haven’t seen in a while. This year’s Dog Daze Rally will be unique... a 10 hour rally that will start and end at the Big Snow Resort in Wakefield, MI. Rally riders will leave at 8:00 a.m. and return by 6:00 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 21. Big Snow Resort will be our rally headquarters for the weekend and is offering a “Stay 2 Nights and the 3rd Night is Free” promotion. Plan on staying Friday and Saturday night, with an option for an additional night on either end.

Start and End:
Indianhead Mountain
500 Indianhead Road, Wakefield, MI
(800) 346-3426

Plan to arrive on Friday afternoon. Rally staff will be there by 3:00 p.m. at the Sky Bar building for checking in and any last minute registrations. At check-in, you’ll sign a waiver and receive your rally swag. The Sky Bar will be open for food and there is an outdoor deck, large indoor space and a big parking lot for kicking tires and story-telling. A mandatory rider’s meeting will be held at 7:00 p.m., at which time rally packets will be handed out. You will have all evening to plan your route and rally staff will be available for questions.

Rally time! The Sky Bar will be open at 6:00 a.m. for continental breakfast and rally staff will be available to answer last-minute questions. Another mandatory rider’s meeting will be at 7:00 a.m., at which time any last-minute details will be discussed. You will be free to launch at 8:00 a.m. Return to rally headquarters before 6:00 p.m. Don’t be late! Anyone returning after 6:00 p.m. will be considered a DNF, but welcome to join in on the post-rally dinner and festivities. After returning, you will be scored and we will be serving a “cook-out” dinner. The awards ceremony will start at about 8:00 p.m. with trophies awarded to the top 5 riders. Plan to stick around and tell tall tales afterward.

Sunday is for whatever you want to do. Bask in the memories of a great rally and have a leisurely breakfast at the Sky Bar or take off on a non-rally mode ride in this picturesque part of Michigan.

Entry Fee
The entry fee for the 2021 Dog Daze Rally is $65 for solo riders and $115 for two-ups. Your entry fee will include a light breakfast on Saturday morning, snacks for the road, dinner Saturday night, an awesome t-shirt and extra (surprise) rally swag. Dinner Friday night or a heartier breakfast Saturday morning will be available at your expense.

A well-equipped rally rider will need maps of MN, WI and MI, a couple of pens, maybe a highlighter or two, a camera (there will be photo bonuses) and a working odometer. A GPS will be helpful, but is not necessary to have fun on this rally.

Big Snow Resort Lodging
We strongly urge riders to stay at the Big Snow Resort for the duration of the rally. They are offering a “Stay 2 Nights and the 3rd Night is Free” promotion and you can take advantage of this by arriving a day early or staying an extra day (or two) afterward. This area has some seriously fun roads to ride! Here are options for lodging at Big Snow Resort:

We are excited to once again offer a new Dog Daze Rally as we start to move close to “normal” in the aftermath of the Covid-19 pandemic. If there continue to be restrictions in August due to the pandemic, we will revise rally rules to ensure proper safety protocols are followed. Finally, we ask that you become familiar with our rally rules prior to registering:
