    Unhappy 2009 Honda Hoot in Knoxville cancelled

    Hope this isn't contageous. Reason given was "economic Uncertainty".

    This has already been discussed in the campfire section as I started a post about it last week. As I and others mentioned the Hoot has been going down hill for the last few years so this really isn't a surprise. I might also add to what was said there that many rallies and shows have a life expectancy. If the promoters do little to create something new and different every year why bother coming back? They had a good run and don't be surprised if you see the Hoot come back but at a different location in a year or two. Other rallies may go away too with the Myrtle Beach rallies being one of them and it has nothing to do with the economy but the objections of the residents who live there.
    We are very fortunate in the BMW community to have many great rallies to choose from. If you have friends who miss the Hoot tell them about some of our great events. If their looking for a springtime rally in a great ridding area, family atmosphere good supply of high quality vendors, beautiful location, and pretty much the nicest people you'll meet anywhere. I would highly suggest the Georgia Mtn rally. You can't beat it for the price!

    i would, too.

    speaking of changing things up, we'll be in a different place this year. same general location, though.

    Go soothingly through the grease mud, as there lurks the skid demon.

    same general location (hiawassee) but a different park.

    due to timing, the announcement won't appear in BMW ON until march... but please do plan on it!
