    I believe the new rotation is scheduled:
    --> 2013 West
    --> 2014 Midwest
    --> 2015 Mountains
    --> 2016 East
    ... ... repeat ... ...

    It's also important to note that sometimes, unexpected things happen and regions might get shuffled due to ... *SURPRISE!* ... complications.

    But generally speaking, the rally site selection committee makes every effort to stick to this schedule.

    Does California have any prospective sites? I know Oregon is nice, but CA has some great riding as well! Thinking of Paso Robles, Monterey, etc.

    Salem Oregon is a great choice but a little too soon since the Redmond rally in 2010. I did a little calculating and have attached a list of the last 10 rallies plus the proposed rally in Salem Oregon.

    2005 Charleston, West Virginia
    2004 Spokane Washington
    2005 Lima, Ohio
    2006 Burlington, Vermont
    2007 West Bend, Wisconsin
    2008 Gillette, Wyoming
    2009 Jefferson City, North Carolina
    2010 Redmond, Oregon
    2011 Bloomington, Pennsylvannia
    2012 Sedalia, Missouri
    2013 Salem, Oregon

    East=3
    Central east=4
    Central west=1
    West=3

    As you can see we are missing an opportunity to have the National in a beautiful part of the country. Colorado, Montana, Idaho, Utah, all have great places to ride and see. Sure we can ride there on the way to Salem but it would be better to have the rally in this region. Good for their economy and our riding.
    I missed Durango and Missoula which I regret and have been hoping that the rally would go back there. We must also remember that these little rallies need to be profitable so it is a fine balance but we need to have the rallies in the Central West region too.

    Keep the shiny side up and ride safe!

    Well u messed up a few names of towns...but location is close enough...and 2003 not 2005.
    But there are some rather limiting factors with locations for 6000 rally attendees.

    Similar situation here. I was going to retire in June, but have now decided to stay until the end of this construction season, the end of November.

    When I retire I can attend just about any rally I want to. Whether I choose the national rally will depend on what's going on, if there are family or friends close to the rally site, the weather, etc.

    The thing about traveling is, you never want it to end and you can't wait to get home.

    Inquiring minds want to know. The title of this thread is 2013 Rally location...

    The RA board is pleased to announce the site of the 2013 rally. It will be held June 20-23, 2013 at the Biltmore Estate in Asheville, NC.
    To everyone who asked "when are we going back to Biltmore?", the answer is next year.
    Great site, great riding and some surprises are in store for 2013. If you've never been to the Biltmore Estate this will be a great time to go.

    This is great news for me. I am limited to 500 miles due to my wife's medical condition which prevents me from rallies west of the Mississippi. I think the RA would be smart to have their rallies on the opposite side of the country every year so those that have limits on distance can attend one or the other. The RA is able to have their rallies smaller rallies in great locations that could handle a MOA rally. My favorite RA rally was at Barber's in Birmingham followed by the rally at the Biltmore. My favorite MOA rally was Johnson City followed by Bloomsburg.

    I would suspect with the MOA being on the west coast next year that the RA can expect record braking attendance at the Biltmore.
