    I think he's probably referring to the Bavarian Oompah Pah (sp?) band that BMW USA is bringing to Bloomsburg. As I understand it, they regularly appear at Octoberfest in Munich and at BMW Days in Garmisch-Partenkirchen. I read somewhere that they would be appearing in town (not at the rally site itself) on Friday evening and it would be open to anyone (including the local townsfolk). One must buy tickets. That said, I couldn't find any info on BMW USA's website, but I did find this:

    They are planning to set up their event on the fairgrounds, but outside of the MOA secure area for the Friday night event. Yes, my understanding is that they will be charging a fee, but I don't know what the cost will be. Our rally will also be having entertainment on Friday night. Here is a little info about the band they are bringing to their event:

    Exactly where outside of the MOA secure area. Seems that many folks, specifically the RVers and some of the tent folks in other posts are being forced to camp in the non-secure area. This area will already be open for people that are encouraged to come and visit and take part of the BMWMOA "party".

    Those that are forced to use this area, if they are to participate in this event, or make the choice of going elsewhere this year, are faced with the general population wandering through their area with associated vandalism, privacy, theft, and attitude issues associated with "party" events.

    So, please, exactly where?.......thanks........God bless.........Dennis
