    Yes

    I don't have it though. Typically it is announced at the Rally but maybe if everyone asks nice someone will share it?

    Are you kidding!

    It's the big secret. The official reason is that it helps their bargaining position with various contracts if the vendor does not know the MOA is locked into a location.

    But, in the beautiful world of the internet it will leak out before July. It did the last two years. I'm just waiting to see who leaks it first this year.

    The MOA execs have admitted that the official rally announcement might soon be a thing of the past.

    Rally 05

    Only a few things from the old days and that is telling everyone on sat. nite at the awards where the site of the next rally will be. Also, don't open the gates until the day the rally starts, then again this is not the old days.

    Santa Fe

    I'd vote for Santa Fe. Reasonable temps, beautiful New Mexican Rockies scenery, capital city that accomodates conventions, lots to do, etc, etc.

    I live in Santa Fe and you really do not want to hold a rally here of the size that we are talking about.

    There is no place big enough to hold all the campers or other facilities required by the BMW MOA.

    Sure it is a pretty place, with good riding, lots of cultural attractions, and 300 art galleries... but it is also damn expensive!

    You live there, I guess you'd know.
    But how about the racetrack?

    I'm really not sure if it's even possible to adequately describe the level of HOT and MISERABLE that is Vegas in the Summer. Like getting a good whack to the 'nads, it's a special sort of misery that you just have to experience to truly appreciate.

    I vote for Mtns... CO, WY, Northern N.M., Montana... Middle of the country and cool if you get up into enough elevation.

    Cheers

    RW (went to Vegas ONCE in the summer)
