    Stupid Question - Where is the 2011 Rally?

    OK,OK, I know it is Bloomsburg - but exactly where? I've searched the rally page and searched this forum and can't find it. Tried to find the fairgrounds on Mapquest but no luck either.

    There's at least two of us in the stupid line. I've wondered the same thing for months but just figured it would be obvious when I got there.

    The point is that neither Mapquest nor Google show where in Bloomsburg the fairgrounds are.

    I'm thinking of getting a room for the first time ever and I don't want to book a hotel 20 miles from the fairgrounds. Can't believe they can't post a map on the Rally site.

    I typed "Bloomsburg Fair" into Google maps and it popped right up. First hit!

    Exactly. Have we all become helpless in the 21st century?

    They even have this on the Rally page of the MOA site (click on "International Rally" tab):

    Bloomsburg PA Fairgrounds

    40 degrees, 59' 35" North
    76 degrees, 28' 06" West

    And they have this too:

    "I heard there are two "Bloomsburg" towns in Pennsylvania.....

    You heard right! The GPS coordinates for the correct Bloomsburg are: 40 degrees, 59' 35" North
    76 degrees, 28' 06" West. You want the Bloomsburg in Columbia County, right off I-80."

    He can follow me

    You give mark a break; he is just another snow bird afraid to ride North. I will let him follow me if he needs a guide to the rally.

    From Wilmington, NC...

    ...you turn left...no right...then you go strait for 10 miles...no 3miles...actually, now that I think about it, you can't get to Bloomsburg from Wilmington!
    I hope that helps...see you in Bloomsburg!
