    Direct from the horse's .......mouth aka ask the chair

    There are a lot of rumors floating about regarding the upcoming 03 "Almost Heaven" BMW MOA International Rally in Charleston, WV.

    What questions do you have about the Rally?

    What would you like to see at the Rally that you haven't seen before?

    What suggestions do you have to make the Rally better?

    What would you like to know about the area?

    Here's you chance to ask the questions and get the answers direct from the horse's....mouth.

    Go ahead, ask whatever's on your mind. See you in Charleston.

    Rally questions

    Mike -

    I have two questions. Can we see a map of the rally layout posted here and with that the shuttle route/schedule.

    Thanks,

    Rally map and shuttle route

    Hello Tina,

    The Rally site map should be posted to the bmwmoa.org Rally web pages already. There should be two maps, one of the downtown Charleston area and the other covering the Charleston area vicinity.

    The shuttle buses will run a loop that will connect the Civic Center with the U of C, where the beer tent will be located. The buses will run along the streets where most of the hotels are also located in downtown Charleston on the way to the U of C. The exact route will be set by the municipal bus people to serve as many attendees and campers as possible. I should also mention that the service will be free. All you need to show will be your wristband to get on board.

    Hello Don,

    If I told you it was OK to use it, then I would have to kill you.

    Oh wait, that's your "other life" answer. Never mind.

    shuttle buses

    I should have noted that the free shuttle bus service will be available in the evening only, when most people will be going over to have a few beers and listen to the music. If you are riding over to the beer tent to have a few beers during the day, then you probably already have experience at doing that anyway, although I would highly discourage mixing riding and drinking.

    Seems to me that this info is already public knowedge. I remember an article in the MOA news that had info in the presidents or directors minutes. I wonder if anyone at the MOA office can do a search for this. I am too lazy took look through last years news.

    Rally Schedule

    Just wondering when the schedule of rally events will be posted. Also, which vendors will be attending. I think this is going to be an expensive rally if there is a good showing of vendors

    Scheduling of seminars is still ongoing as is the response from vendors making it impossible to post these yet.

    These aren't the sort of things you want posted before they are ready, especially the schedule of events which is subject to change as more things are added. I wouldn't want somebody to see a time and date for an event, make their plans around that information and then find out it has changed later.

    The schedule of events and the list of vendors will eventually be posted to the Rally web page.

    We are expecting a record turnout of vendors for this Rally. We have about 90,000 square feet of airconditioned, indoor, secure professional exhibition space with the sort of support facilities for the vendors we have never been able to offer before.

    Pay down the balances on your credit cards before you come to Charleston.
