    New Rally Schedule

    Anyone have a comment on the new rally schedule? I may not fully understand the rotation but it looks like us folks in the east don't get the rally back in our area until 2016, five years from the last one in Bloomsburg, PA.

    No comment other than that seems it is the way it worked out with the change from 6 to 4 zones.
    I used to post here, but now I don't.

    Another Possibility

    First, let me say that I trust the decision by our board as I believe this was not a decision made in haste.

    When I was teaching music we had a yearly conference here in Pennsylvania. It rotated from eastern PA (Philadelphia) to central PA (Hershey) to western PA (Pittsburgh) and then back to central (Hershey). This four year rotation assured that every other year the conference would be in the middle of the state.

    If applied to our national perhaps the countries (yes, Canada too) could have been divided into three segments with the rotation moving west- central- east- central then begin the rotation again. It would mean that for members on the east or west coast a long trip (longer vacation time or missed rally) might occur just once in a four year rotation.

    Just a thought.

    Well Bill, from reading the Sedalia thread I'd say that they would be thrilled to have us there every other year! Once we have a spot as ideal as that, why not use it more than once?

    When I was on the BOD I once suggested we have a selection of "super sites" in each zone.

    We could rotate from zone to zone with some repeats. To not repeat the selected site would have to be equal or better than the super site.

    There are a lot of people wouldn't. I have three friends who went and they said they wouldn't go back. We live in cool twisty roaded mountains and they said there was no good riding there. They go to every National and always come home to enjoy our local roads.

    I don't want to but, I thought there were some pretty damn good roads out that way. Granted it wasn't East Tennessee, North Jawja or North Carolina but Missouri had some decent roads.

    I agree,and live in the north Georgia mountains. We have twisty roads,but so does Missouri. I thought the area was so nice I spent a few days more in MO. There are some great sights,and some interesting rock formations(elephant rocks)and lots of springs and forests.With good riding between them.
