    Holding the rally at Sedalia MO in October 2012 when the weather is hopefully good would a good test to see if a date change would be successful.

    Don't need more critics, thanks.

    Our hard working volunteers deserve better than this year, and they will get it in Missouri.

    We do need more air conditioning. Sedalia has that and more. I think you'll be pleasantly surprised by the facilities.

    We'll miss you, but we'll be there with bells on for our annual family reunion.

    Sorry I missed Bloomsburg, but other circumstances as well as weather prevented my rally trip.
    As far as Sedalia, as is stands now, I will be there (but not with bells on, just regular rally attire!).
    I still like the late September or early October idea of a rally, though.

    Stanley Boys will be at the Sedalia Ntnl. Rally, depending on the hot weather though!

    +100, Tenfold Gunny! My Son Seth (14) and his Daddy Don will be at Sedalia, but it will all depend on the weather. For my entire 30+ years of MOA Membership I have always pre-registered, but that is now going to change; weather will decide.

    By the way, I have to take Seth out of school to attend the MOA Rally held always in the 3rd week of July; like many Western States, school is year round in Arizona!

    Hot weather Rally

    Well, yes it was hot. It was hot in Ontario when we left and it was worse in Bloomsburg. However, we survived, had fun and tried out our hot weather gear. The good thing was that we probably sweated out all the beer rather than having it settle around the waist :-), and besides, I'll take the heat before pouring rain any day. So, enough about the weather, nothing you can do about anyways, life goes on.

    If climate change keeps changing weather patterns to the hotter side, I guess eventually the date for the rally will change to either earlier or later in the year.

    The problem I see with a late Sept - October rally is while it may be ideal weather for some parts of the country, other parts not so much. As I understand and have experienced, the organizers goal is to move the event around to different region. Let's face it there is no one size fits all when it comes to placing the rally in terms of weather and location.

    I've got Sedalia on my calendar. Living in northeast Arkansas, I don't have any excuses for not attending.

    Read some of the above "issues" and pick one. Alternatively, say while sMiling: " It's too far " over and over.... aaaaaa

    i will not preregister for another rally, ever. if the weather is good and not 112 in the shade, i'll go. although i enjoyed every national i've been to, there is nothing there that makes riding day in and day out in 95+ degree weather worth it for me.

    All of which tells me we need to ask 2 questions.

    What is typical weather there at that time?

    Can the facility keep us cool if it gets hotter than typical?

    Sedalia is already dialed in for specific dates in July, 2012. No sense whinning about trying to change that. Let's hope for the best and place it on our calendars.

    While no one would ever volunteer to be "Chairperson of Clear Skies," or "Chairperson of Mild Temperatures," could we at least consider trying a national rally in autumn for 2013 or 2014?!
