    Hey Thanks Mark ! I found the whole experience to be fun, rewarding, and very informative.
    My voice came back about 90% today. I guess I hollered too much getting folks down to the dunking booth on Friday. And getting dunked myself Satruday afternoon took what was left of it away. That was a lot of fun too though.
    I'd do it all again.

    No doubt about it.... Connie and Vance have managed to set the bar for BMW MOA International Rallies.

    What a great event!

    Thanks to you both.

    I thought Vance and Connie did a wonderful job. Issues arise when a large group of people gather at any event. The rally had fewer issues than any rally I have ever attended. The few issues I am aware of were mostly due to circumstances beyond the control of the MOA.

    Being my first rally and only 3 months into 'riding again', I had a great time. Thank you Vance and Connie for a great event.

    There are a couple components to a rally. There's the physical aspects of the event; the seminars, the site, the johns, etc. There's also the "vibe" of the rally and it comes from the rally chairs.

    I can't remember the last time I attended a rally that had such an easy going vibe. I think it comes straight from the rally chairs and wound up being passed right on down to nearly every soul that attended.

    Very, very, very well done, all.

    Thanks for the nice comments...got in late last night as I stayed Monday to make sure all was "right" with the fair ground before we left. Just got up from a nap and getting ready to take another one...but thanks to everyone. It appears that most had a great time...just what Connie and I were working for! And we had fun too!
