    2010 Rally Location

    Hmmm ... I have not seen and thread about the location of the 2010 rally location? By this time of the year there is always a buzzz about where the next years event will be. And ideas??

    Thanks! Looks like that will be one I miss. Oh well really can't complain since the southeast has been pretty lucky in getting sites within 1000 miles.

    It was this thread,
    http://www.bmwmoa.org/forum/showthread.php?t=35385

    That is the way the MOA makes an announcement, they put it in a thread that does not state what it is about.
    They don't put it on the web site or in the ON.

    You are just supposed to know.

    That thread was not an official MOA announcement - it was posted by a forum member who was at (or watched remotely) the last board meeting.

    I'm sure it will show up in the ON, though it's likely they are focused on Johnson City, and you will see it printed after the rally is over. That still gives people a year to plan. If you need to know these things sooner, you can always head to St. Louis for a board meeting (or get online and watch the webcast from home).

    The "Official Announcement" is always published in the October issue of the BMW Owners News. This is done out of respect for the current national rally.

    From the minutes of the April Board meeting:
    Our big announcement is the 2010 Rally site has been selected. We are returning to Redmond, OR. Deb Lower and Stan Hermann will be Rally Chair/co-Chair. July 14-18, 2010.

    Messing with me

    Are you guys simply jerking my chain? I thought they never announced before the end of the actually ongoing rally.

    Anyways, the jury is still out on Redmond, OR and certainly if it was already an actual former Rally Site.

    that was before the founding of the forum and the baying of the hounds.

    you won't find a better site or destination for a rally.
