    utube videos can be found under both Rick Estrin and the Nightcats as well as former band name Little Charlie and the Nightcats.

    Portland has a active music scene, the Cascade Blues Association could be an invaluable resource to the rally chair in charge of music.

    I'm sure a German band could be found in Mt. Angel OR. not that I want to hear polka music all night but might be fun.

    As varied as the musical tastes are (see what are you listening to today thread) would you (rally chair) consider throwing band selection suggestion open to the general membership?

    Just random thoughts on a slow rainy day at work.

    I've seen his shows locally here in CA and never been disappointed.

    And I see a hole in his schedule in July...

    I happen to have that weekend off and am, so far, planning to attend. I would like to volunteer, but I cannot commit to anything until late June, early July. Is that too late to sign up to volunteer for anything?

    Thanks,

    Dee

    Nope

    Never too late to volunteer. There is currently on line sign up and sign up during the rally. We WILL find a spot for you. Thanks for volunteering!

    Hi Folks,

    Ramey 'Coach' Stroud here with breaking news.

    On July 13 and 14 there will be an off-pavement adventure ride exploring the beautiful Cascade Mountains of Oregon. This pre-rally event will be a self-guided, off-pavement tour with maps and GPS tracks for each of three routes: Easy, Moderate and Difficult. Each route will have chase riders bringing up the rear.

    All proceeds from this event will benefit the BMW MOA Foundation and help pay for safety training. Speaking of training, there will be off-pavement coaching sessions as part of this event.

    The price of admission is a donation to the Foundation. Make a $100 donation and you receive an entry to the two-day adventure tour as your thank-you gift. For a $50 donation choose either day as your thank-you gift.

    There will be MUCH MORE information coming soon in BMWON and on this website. But you heard it here first! If you ride a GS, this is one ride you can't miss.

    Ride Well,
    Coach

    There are alternatives. Consider renting a tent setup. Cheaper than hotels and you get to stay on-site.

    TEd offers comfortable tents, big mattresses and a chair. Don't forget the mint on the pillow (though mine had melted when I checked in at the National last year.
    And don't forget the free coffee, towels, charging stations, etc.
    I used Sherpa at the National and RA rallies last year and it was a treat. Used my own gear for the of the two weeks on the road.
    I'm not related or own a piece, just a satisfied customer.
    Ted will take care of you.

    Those are hard mints too. Don't remember it getting hot enough to melt those!

    You should have tracked me down for a replacement!

    Yet Another Entertainment Recommendation

    In the For What Its Worth department,

    http://www.betoandthefairlanes.com/

    Beto and the Fairlanes have been entertaining in the Houston/Austin/San Antonio since I attended the University of Texas at Austin in the 70s. Interesting, dance-able music with a flair.

    I really like the swing sound. Under the stars I'm sure it would be a big hit.

    I'm pretty sure the musical entertainment line up is almost complete.
    I'll keep this link just in case. THANKS !!

    Nope. Entertainment booking isn't on the same time table as registration. We'll announce when all the cotracts are signed and conditions met.

    Offsite activities?

    Last rally, we had the opportunity to visit the Bush Beans factory for a tour and a MOA BBQ reception. My wife and I really enjoyed this and it is one of the best memories of our trip to Johnson City.

    Is there anything like this in the works for this year?

    I don't want to miss it if there is!
