    Great chicken rally in alabama is on

    Hey Fellow Beemers,

    I would first like to say thank you to the nearly 100 folks who have e-mailed me to find out if there was any help needed here in Alabama for any of our members. The BMW family is the greatest.

    I can report that as of this time, non of our members lost property, their lives, or were hurt. There were some who had some damage and some clean up, but nothing catastrophic. Even our members in the Tuscaloosa area that was the hardest hit. I will qualify that with the fact that I have not been able to get in touch with EVERYONE, as we have a huge club, but I do think that by now I might have had some word if someone was in dire need.

    As for the Great Chicken Rally upcoming (May 26th thru 29th), the rally site is in fine shape. I spoke with them and they only had lost power for 5 days, but the campground itself is fine, and the rally is on as scheduled without an hiccups.

    We look forward to putting on our 23rd annual rally , and it's also our club's 40th anniversary year so we plan to have a great time.

    This year's bike raffle is for a 211 G650 GS so if you aren't able to attend, you can get info on the rally and/or tickets at www.bmwmoal.org (please add the L in there because if you don't you get the National MOA website). You can also contact me at rally@bmwmoal.org

    We look forward to hosting you all and LET"S RALLY !!!!

    I'll be there this year as well.

    So far, only one tent rented, so plenty more available.

    This is one rally that I try to make each year. Usually I motel there / back and camp at the rally. If I did not have a California trip planned, I would not only attend this year's Chicken Rally, but I most definitely would rent a Sherpa tent. Ted, even if your rentals are not the greatest this year, I believe that your product will catch on at rallies that are about the same size as the Huntsville Rally. I'll rent from you next year at the Chicken Rally.

    Thanks.

    I'll give it two years (this year and next year). If I still can't even cover my costs, I'll simply pull out.
