    Thumbs up Time to Consider Volunteering for the Gates at Sedalia!

    “The 40th Anniversary Rally is getting closer! Whether a returning “volunteer-veteran” or someone looking to jump in for the first time, an excellent way to get your feet wet is to be an MOA Gates Monitor. Along with at least three other rally goers, staff one of only two gates that will be buzzing with activity throughout the day and evenings (shifts are only 2-4 hrs. in length, depending on what you sign up for) as motorcycles arrive for the Rally, or MOA members come and go throughout. No special skills or expectations other than friendly smiles are required. E-mail Gates Chair Kevin Greenwald at: greenwald@charter.net if interested and receive a spreadsheet of availabilities. First come, first serve – sign up for a slot, and it could be yours! Encourage friends to join you and make those couple of hours a fast, fun time together and a rewarding rally experience. Stand on the ‘front lines’ of this historic Rally and become one of The Few, The Proud …. A RALLY VOLUNTEER!”

    Just had lunch with George "Pineapple" Davies today. The two of us will be coordinating the volunteers for gate duty.

    We know many will hopefully volunteer once they are at the Sedalia, but need some commitments prior to it, so that Wednesday (from noon on) is covered.

    If you know you'll be there that soon, don't hesitate to step up and grab a brief shift - it's the place to be to watch the Rally take shape!

    Gates.........

    Don't be shy, there's no better way to meet new friends then volunteering. We sure could use some help on the first couple of days to get everything started.

    Give us 3 hours of your time and I guarantee you will meet people you'll look forward to seeing for years to come. Trust me I've been doing this for over 20 years and I've met some of my newest best friends at a National Rally.

    Best part about volunteering early is most of the activities don't start till Thursday. Seminars, Vendors, Entertainment, Beer Garden and Volunteering it doesn't get any better then that.

    Ride Safe and CYA There,

    gates

    I did a couple of shifts at my first rally the falling leaf last October and thought it was pretty cool. Plan to sign up when I get there. Will commit sooner when I find a room. Looking for 1 within 30 miles any ideas??

    Check with the Sedalia motels on a daily basis (you will need to call them) as there WILL be cancelations, even right up to rally week.

    Check in this forum under "Rooms In Sedalia". I wrote a post about Lincoln University. It may help you out.

    Smile

    George and I both 'out of town' for the next several days - he's playing on dirt trails out west - I'm tearing up twisties in the Smoky Mountains starting Thursday.

    Neverthelss, please continue to volunteer your time for easy duty at the two gates that will see plenty of activity and interesting sights - great way to wet your feet as a first time Rally Volunteer!

    My e-mail is: greenwald@charter.net

    Still need lots more personnel.
