    This may be a rumor, but I think that the delay is caused by Vance and his team wanting to "go the extra mile" in map detail. An example would be the topo overlay to help us find a level campsite. Another would be the GPS locations of the major event centers to help us create routes (for example, beer tent to restroom and back, assuming you can still read the screen).

    I wonder if there are any other rumored upgrades?

    I heard that they have inset little BMW Roundels in the road asphalt that will direct us to all the great BBQ places within a ten mile radius! Any truth to that?

    But the roundels would be on almost every road.

    It's hard to believe that the layout hasn't already been finalized.

    The Rally Site layout will appear on the Web site this coming week. And it will run in the July issue.

    Sorry Bud, it is not in the June issue.

    Have a good weekend everyone!

    Question Level Camping??

    Rode by the site to have a look this weekend. They were having a car show and BBQ so I did not go into the fairground but a ride around the outside did not look to promising for a level campsite.

    Level is a relative thing. My lawn makes it look as flat as a table top.

    Found it, http://www.bmwmoa.org/rally09//the_2...here_from_i_26

    It might be easier to find if this was under the International Rally tab with a viewable link.

    Thanks for the links but none show where you can pick up your shipped packages, where vendor buildings are, security, beer garden, country store, car parking, camping and no camping areas, rest rooms, showers, seminar buildings, bike wash, what gates are open or one way, etc....I have some info, but I volunteer for registration every year and try to figure out where a lot of the stuff is in order to answer questions from rally participants. Many have already left home before they get the July issue of the News...most do not want to read the rally book before they get on the grounds and get set up....we get a lot of these questions at the registration area. I did find the fairground layout with the fairground labels in the vendor packet but it did not have our overlay on it to show our use for the buildings....I already have directions to Walmart....Is it July yet???
