    Volunteers, we need you.

    March is here and time to think about what you would like to do at the Rally. All sorts of Committee Chairs will be looking for your help. As has been said many times before, "the Rally can not happen without Volunteers." Please step up!

    I am looking for people who don't mind driving around in circles. We need drivers and spotters for the Shuttle. (pick up truck with hay wagon)

    Thank you.
    Shuttle Committee Chair.

    As co-chair of the Volunteers Committee last year, it was very disheartening to discover that far too many committees were overwhelming short of the needed number of volunteers to work their scheduled shifts. It did take a lot of fast talking to get enough rally goers to donate a few hours on a shift. Without the volunteers, the rally would really be handicapped in providing services that we have all come to expect. I can not emphasis enough that folks should contact committee chairs prior to the rally to offer their time. Volunteering is a great way to meet and create new friendships. As well it is a lot fun. Don't wait until the rally to signup; now is the time to volunteer.

    Paul, I couldn't agree more with your comments.... Last year was my first international rally, (Sedalia, MO.) having just bought a new to me KRS...... I volunteered for one evening at the registration desk, and had a ball meeting new folks as they first arrived at the rally. I only had a chance to stay a couple of evenings, but found the volunteer experience on of the highlights of the rally. It's a great way to meet folks, especially since I attended solo, so I would whole heartily recommend providing a little time to make this valuable asset to BMW riders another success. So, for this years rally, I've again signed up for some spots, and would encourage everyone to take advantage of this opportunity to make the rally enjoyable for everyone who attends.... I would encourage everyone to consider at least one volunteer activity. I hope to see everyone at this years rally and wish you the best on developing a solid list of volunteers who see the value of activities worth more than just the pleasure of attendance.....Walt E.

    Thumbs up First timer challenge

    I to am a first time International rally attendee. I would like to issue a challenge to all first time rally goers to sign up for at least one 4hour shift. Why? Why not. I signed up to meet people and to arrive early and get my arms around the great and wonderful gathering of like minded people all intent on doing one thing. I am riding 2000 miles plus ( one way ) to go to work and support a organization that promotes the sport and serves the people that love what I love. It's not work anymore than the things you do around your own home, because you care.

    So here it is folks...you saw it coming and you know the speiel.....,if you care you will give a bit of yo'ur precious time to a larger cause, a great organization ( mostly volunteeres ) that has provided for you, guess what, the reason you are going to Salem to begin with. It's not rocket science.

    Here is the challenge. I will be there the day before the rally begins thru Sunday. I have six shifts scheduled for the registration desk. I will be wearing a name tag with my forum name - BINKLEYLANE - and/or you can find me by my license plate RT4ME , see avatar above.
    Find me, shake my hand and tell me you have also volunteered and I will give you a ticket for a ice cold beer.Hopefully we will all meet in the beer tent and celebrate our good fortune and this great organization, the BMWMOA.

    Oh yea....don't wait too long because I am committing to only 50 tickets. That is 50 volunteers. 50 shifts. And anyone that wants to match my challenge, I will buy you a beer too.. Wow, hope the beers aren't $5.00 a pop, ouch
    I am guessing they will go quickly. PM me and I will forward my volunteer schedule. It's just too easy.

    See you all in Salem.
