    Thanks Chasman

    I like to thank you Chuck for hosting this years rally. Thanks for all the hard work that you and your wife did for putting this rally on. It was a pleasure to be able to meet you.
    Bye bye 2006 F650 GS for a 2011 F650 GS.

    Wow Chuck, you're awake? I thought you'd still be in your post rally coma!

    Very nice rally Chuck. You, Julie, Bob and Sue had every aspect of the event excellently planned and executed.

    This stuff don't just happen!

    Fairgrounds:)

    Them there fairgrounds were first rate, GOOD choice. Those not attending missed out and those that did got a treat, because these facilities were rock'in. MO. takes good care of their State fairgrounds, it showed. Ya'll done GOOD. This one ranks "one of our" BEST EVER rally sites picked,imo....I'm a old rally veteran here. Randy. PS; my only other very high pic was RedmondOR..SedaliaMO. Rock'd.

    A quick follow up!

    I'm not a pooper on many other sites, all these years, AS MANY have been exceptional to me. Just I have these two as great memories for sites that were appealing the most. Man, we've had a lot(40years) and they all have been really neat. Won't ever forget that Olympic Pool at FredricksburgTX Rally. How cool was that! We all have some good favorites, I'm sure. CAN WE get a pool again???Tall order. Randy

    Thanks team JCB.

    If the average member knew how much time it takes over a year and a half to get ready for a rally, and how much time and attention is needed during a rally, such member would be a lot more eager to go with the flow and not criticize the event.

    As an average member, I'd like to add my thanks to all those who put their time an energy into preparing for and during the rally. Also, all those volunteers. I had a great time and appreciated the A/C facilities. I thoroughly enjoy the closing ceremonies in that arena! Well done everyone! I will continue to attend BMWMOA Rallys.

    I totally agree. Sedalia was my 1st and it was fantastic for the time I was there.

    It's interesting as I read thru some of the posts criticizing the rally that so many of the people writing those posts were
    not even at the rally.

    It was a great event. I already have my hotel reservations for next year and I can't wait for the 2,200 mile ride to Salem.

    Many thanks to all who worked so hard to make this possible and to all who volunteered and supported the rally.

    Outstanding job by the Rally Chairs. This was my 3rd Rally in the last 4 years (missed Redmond, OR) and easilly the best.

    The people who actually do the work have learned to live with the noise coming from the whine cellar. It was a great rally with a terrific venue and very comfortable temps for July. I only had one uncomfortable night...I blame it on Chuck.
