More info at www.MotoMO.org
    When the MOA rally was in Gillette, WY, there was a rally in Spearfish, SD (94miles away) that is traditionally the week before the MOA rally. That year the organisors of the Spearfish rally moved the dates from Fri, Sat, Sun to Sun, Mon, Tues. According to the organisers, they had the biggest attendance at their rally ever. On the Wednesday, there was a cavalcade arranged for riders going to the MOA. The atmosphere was great. This "little" rally was a precursor to the "main event" and was a lot of fun. I would suggest something similar for the Springfield BMW Roadriders since they are already prepared to move their date, that they move a little bit more. This will solve the problem of what to do between two rallies 150 miles apart and allow Springfield to experience an estimated double in attendance.

    The Gillette rally was badmouthed from the day of it's announcement .

    I enjoyed the trip there, the rally & the trip home. The rally chairs must have felt the weight of the world from all the negativity, but they went on to hold (for me) what was a great rally.

    They put on quite a "light show" on Thursday evening If I have the day right.
