    2014 will be Zone 3 Midwest, 2015 will be Zone 2 Mountain States (under contract), 2016 will be Zone 4 Eastern (several sites currently under review). This will complete the first 4 Zone rotation schedule which began with the 2013 Salem rally.

    Sorry, I wasn't too clear now that I've read it again.
    Choices in Zone 3, not choices of zones. I cut and pasted to show the diff. zones and years.
    Please make it too far away from me so I can finally go to Alaska.

    So where is it?

    So where is it? Also, by reading the agenda from the meeting, I'm guessing they selected Bob Aldridge as the new executive director?

    Must be a secret, but then why publish the agenda? Internet search finds nothing.

    Somebody...

    ...join me in a "high noon" toast thanking Ted for his "communication" with the membership! Now the many of us enroute to/from Salem can
    set a course to "flyby" next years rally site for a quick "look-see"; a familiarity ride around the joint; may even bury a cache.
    And dosen't highway 12 look good between MN & OR!

    Well, I guess there ought to be plenty of hotel rooms. The Fairgrounds at the intersection of Snelling and Como is almost in the very middle of the metro area with a population of 3.3 million people. It's been a while, if ever, that BMW MOA had an urban rally.

    NOTE: Edited to change the wrong street "lexington" to the right street "Snelling". I knew that - just a case of outgassing of the brain.

    Sweet.

    That's about 10 miles from my suburban house.

    I'll be there, barring any unforeseen circumstances between now and then.

    I'll already volunteer to volunteer as well.

    Randy, to the beergarden!
