    thanks Rev!

    Rev Willie,
    i will PM the Bier tent Chair persons, i got the OK from Cynthia, i think she's excited about it.
    don't see any reason why i cannot be there on Wed. for the set-up etc. but will have to go home to get her Thurs. afternoon due to her having short vacation time with her new job. as i planned to come in early Thursday to set up, then go get her anyway this only changes things marginally.

    ciao 4 now
    Tom

    Yes, Tom
    You will find that getting your tent set up on Wednesday will be MUCH better than trying on Thursday (did you study the Oklahoma Land Rush in high school history?) Going out to pick her up in the afternoon will be much easier once you have dug-in for the weekend. Make friends with your neighbors!
    Onward, through the fog!

    I've already sent Tom a reply. Welcome to the insanity! You'll enjoy it!

    And again, we THANK all the folks who want to help out. The Rally wouldn't happen without all the volunteers!

    hi guys! and thanks. we are psyched.

    volunteers DO make things happen.
    i have done a fair amount of volunteering over the years, and that may be putting it lightly. perusing this thread yesterday, it just FELT like the thing to do! i mean, isn't the Grande Marque or Beer Tent the center of every rally? if not it SHOULD be!

    tho this'll be my first BMWMOA rally, i have been to other rallies (Finger Lakes '09, 45th BSA International, Isle Of Man, '08) and numerous other less well known events where there were up to 30,000 people camped over a huge area... so yeah, i'm up on how crowded & complex it might get for us. *intimate* is a word that comes to mind. making friends with the neighbors won't be a problem. it's just what you DO. we actually have friends we made at the Finger Lakes Rally a couple years ago, so i plan to touch base with them to see if they're coming up. and i'm certain i'll have various other buddies in camp from all over PA.

    Randy, i hear the advice on not trying to do too much... no worries! i'm sure it'll all settle out. also, thanks for the gracious invite- we'd be most pleased to have you show us about and introduce us around camp if the timing allows for it.
    now that you have my email addy, don't hesitate to contact me if you should feel the need for any reason between now and then.

    have a great day, everybody!

    Hey OBMWM, you're volunteering for the same stuff as me. Wonder what the chances are we'll end up in the same golf cart?

    Manicmechanic - an earlier email I sent to the Volunteer committee should have wound its way to the beer committee. I've also volunteered for Gates/Security and should be arriving by early dinner time on Wed (I hope).

    Typically after a long ride I'm still pumped up and unless Gates/Security assigns me a shift Wed evening I can certainly do a shift in the beer garden that evening.

    Greetings, folks! Just over a week until I start riding to the Rally grounds. So far over 3 dozen individuals have volunteered for the Biergarten, along with a virtual club. GREAT! That's not to mention those I don't know about yet who havs signed up with the Volunteer chair. The more the merrier! I look forward to seeing and working with you once we get there. Ride safely!

    OH, NO, not Chromeheads! Time to buy a new set of sunglasses! Just kidding, of course. It will indeed be a pleasure to see you again.

    NO,NO,NO!
    Don't hide the women--they have the money!
    Don't hide the children--somebody has to pick up everything for us!

    We must save our resources...
