Story by Gary Lenon.

They pulled into the campground (http://www.rideroyalblue.com/ )  all week long, all eager to take part in the Blue Thunder PRC Rally 2010.  First the PRC rally committee members arrived at the Royal Blue Campground to spend the week preparing for the June 24, 25 and 26 rally.  Members from all over the United States soon followed and the campground started filling up.

Busy days of rally preparation soon gave way to evenings around the campfire and night rides to the Top of the World, which was a great scenic lookout located at approximately 2,800 feet and known by some as the Helicopter Pad.  The trail from camp wound it’s way up the mountain in a 45 minute drive that led to this “must see” when visiting this area.

Every morning of the rally found Polaris Rangers lined up at the front gate, waiting for one of the guided trail rides. Expert trail guides from the PRC Ranger Club led scenic rides that included a couple of waterfalls, beautiful winding trails and some challenging technical areas to climb some rocks and play in the mud.

Those wanting a more challenging riding experience joined up with guided rides led by the local Royal Blue Rangers Club.  Riders seemed to have a lot of fun learning exactly what their machines could do in some of the more challenging riding areas.

The food at the rally was absolutely delicious!  Thursday evening the staff of the Royal Blue Campground put on an awesome free weenie roast with all the fixings for all of the rally attendees.  Friday the PRC Ranger Club rally committee staff grilled hamburgers for everyone and the meal featured salads, chips and even homemade ice cream!  Saturday’s feast was a huge hog roast that was thoroughly enjoyed by everyone.

Saturday evening was highlighted by a huge prize drawing that featured about $50,000 worth of goodies, including a grand prize of a  $15,000  2010 Robbie Gordon Edition RZR 4 that was donated by Polaris Industries.
