    Thumbs up Un-official

    Someone in registration told me we were at 8,400 and something- might be a new attendance record! But the official number will come out in the rally issue of the news-

    Greetings,

    The number on the white board at registration is the number of door prize tickets issued.

    It does not include minors, all the vendors, the 50 or so people from BMW or the close to 200 people that that signed in after noon on Saturday.

    From the information we were able to confirm by the closing ceremony we had over 9,000 in attendance.

    Thanks to each and every one of you for joining us in Vermont.

    Best,

    I agree. Our goal was not to try to throw the biggest rally or put the most money into the club coffers; our goal was to do our best to provide a great experience for all our guests. Early reviews indicate that we were successful.

    The fact that we took a sledge hammer to the previous attendance record is icing on the cake.

    Best,
    The MOA and all the volunteers did just that, incredibly well.
    There are always some problems with any event of this size. I had NONE.
    (Well, I would have liked to have all sun...)

    But for so many volunteers to put this together, we were amazed.

    Thank you all.

    Who cares?

    Well, I would say that the attendence number is an indicator of the level of intrest in the rally, and by that metric, the intrest level is high.

    Anyway, the rally was great. I had a really fun time, and I think Rob and all the organizers deserve a huge vote of thanks from all of us!
