01. Members can register for the Polar Bear Grand Tour by contacting Jim Conway at PBGT2020@gmail.com and you will receive further instructions.

02. While COVID 19 restrictions are still in place, there will be NO physical sign-ins at the scheduled stops. Members should see your Flight Leader for the alternate sign-in procedures. The Flight Leaders will make every effort to be at the schedule stops from 11:30 am and end at 1:30 pm.

03. Until the COVID 19 restrictions are lifted, we will suspend all merchandise sales.

04. Two (2) points will be awarded for each stop when a motorcycle is ridden to and from scheduled stops and cars will be awarded one (1) point but only three times (save them for bad weather), subject to the alternate provisions of Rules 6 and 7.

05. One (1) point will be awarded for each hundred motorcycle miles round trip from your home address. You must use the most direct route. This is on the honor system but the committee reserves the right to challenge and verify any mileage.

06. While COVID 19 restrictions are in place, individual members will be permitted to take a selfie at the scheduled stop showing themselves, their bike and signage and forwarding the photo to their Flight Leader or emailing it to PBGT2020@gmail.com with their name and round trip mileage. Members will be permitted to visit the scheduled stop within a 5 day window starting the Friday before the assigned date until the Tuesday following the assigned date. The application of this rule can only be used five times during this riding season.

07. Certain states may still have additional COVID 19 restrictions for residents and non-residents that have limited our access to some of our scheduled stops. Until these restrictions are lifted, members are permitted to design their own ride to replace the rides to the restricted states. Individual members can take a selfie at the alternate stop showing themselves, their bike and signage and forwarding the photo to their Flight Leader or emailing it to PBGT2020@gmail.com with their name and round trip mileage.

08. In order to receive your points you must send your selfie or another proof that you were at the scheduled stop to your Flight Leader or emailing it to PBGT2020@gmail.com. Your Flight Leader will update your page in the Sign-in book and enter your mileage and points.

09. If or when the COVID 19 restrictions are lifted, the staff will return to designated stops and the sign-in books will be available from 11:30 am and end at 1:30 pm unless otherwise noted in the directions.

10. A total of thirty (30) points must be accumulated in the season to qualify for patches and rockers.

11. Extra points: Upon presentation of proof of participation in the Crotona Midnight Run, four points will be awarded. Riding to Daytona and back by motorcycle for speed week will give you six points and earn you two weeks of perfect attendance. Two points will be awarded for attempting to give blood. You don't have to ride a motorcycle to the site where blood is given. If you do, you will also receive regular mileage points but please be careful riding after giving blood. Two points plus mileage to and from the starting destination will be awarded for the participation in Dale's Chilly Chili Run. Two points will be awarded for participation in the AMA Dist II Corn Boil.

12. There will be a perfect attendance pin. You must make at least thirty points to qualify and ride/drive to all scheduled stops. You will not have to make any of the extra points.

13. All thirty point qualifiers will receive the appropriate patch/rockers and 1st year qualifiers will receive a Polar Bear Grand Tour patch.

14. To encourage more riding after the 30 points are accumulated, two additional awards are available. The first is a Gold Rocker if you get at least 45 points. The second is a pin if you accumulate 60 points.

15. All scheduled stops cancelled will be substituted. Check the website or your email for information.

16. For changes and updates, check the Polar Bear website or your email (if you have provided your email address to the Club officers).
