    Blechblos'n

    This may be a dumb questions but I can't find the answer and I know I'm not the only one wondering.

    From what i understand, Blechblos'n is the entertainment on Friday night just outside the rally grounds. The ad on ON mentions special pricing and ticket info. i realize BMW Motorrad is trying to attract locals to this event, but does this mean rally attendees are also expected to purchase tickets?

    The Motorrad venue is separate from our event. As far as I know we are having our own band(s) that night.

    If you want to attend the BMW NA event, you have to purchase a ticket. If you have no interest, you don't have to purchase a ticket. Simple as that.

    Thanks Voni & Gort, but now I really feel stupid.
    I can get the utube links, which really don't say anything and when I click on the lonestarcycles link Voni has I get nothing. So I went on lonestar's main page and for the life of me I can't find any link to the Rally or Blechbos'n.
    Can you give this old cogger any other advice?

    Here are some other songs that hopefully will get you in the mood:

    I think a large amounts of beer needs to be consumed when watching these guys, after all they are an Oktoberfest band!

    I guess that I'm a bit confused as to why BMW NA is even having an event at the same time and location as the MOA Rally if it is not part of the rally.

    Sorry. I fixed the Lone Star link.

    I'm thinking it's really not my kind of music, so I don't care.

    I'm calling it the "Drink the Bavarian Kool-Aid" event. BMW NA knows that the MOA Rally will stir up a bunch of attention in the surrounding areas. So they want to draw in non-MOA folks and generate interest in their products. Kind of like "If you buy one of our bikes, you too can be one of the Happy Rally Goers inside the Fairgrounds!"

    Parasitic marketing at its finest.
