    '04 MOA Rally

    Lots of rumors...

    When you guys get back from W.VA. could you please post the scoop on next year? Location, venue, etc.

    Is it really back to the west coast, again?

    Be happy to Mark. But, keep an eye on the forum as someone may post something during the Charleston rally.

    I can tell you that it will be a shorter trip for you this year then it will be next year.

    I hope it is back out west, we need a good excuse to head cross country again. Colorado or Montana would be nice.

    At the Iowa Rally I was told that it was at Laguna Seca, CA. We'll know for sure Thursday the 10th.

    Post Rally History?

    Could someone tell me where to find a list of past national rally sites? Why is the next year rally location a secret?

    Look in your Anonymous Book for a listing of past National Rally sites and Rally chairs.

    While we try to identify potential sites as far as five years in advance, contracts aren't always signed or details finalized. Remember, these events are entirely volunteer driven. We need to take one event at a time to make it somewhat manageable, plus the host location is not always ready for us to announce the location too far in advance. Many lodgings will not take reservations more than a year in advance amongst other considerations.

    In a week from now, the 04 location won't be a secret any more. Come to Charleston and you'll be amongst the first to know.

    2003 rally a bust

    I think the membership needs to know whats in the running for upcomming national rallys. If any are to have the 2003 format (ie. motel/hotel rallye) the membership may like to change the destination or at least the format. The 2003 rallye, in my opinion, was a logistical disaster---We went home a day early---transportation sucked!!

    I wasn't there but I've stated before my preference for one location, away from city centers where everyone and everything on site is within walking distance. That's what it will take to get me to attend.

    P.S. Even if it "sucked" I don't think I would go home early.

    03 rally

    I just got back and thought the rally was excellent. Great roads, great hospitality, And a good first try at having a hotel and tent based rally. Sure a few things can get better, but it was well planned, and although different this style of rally shows some promise. I arrived Wednesday after taking the excellent roads noted on the website, (Thanks Ian) I left this AM and just got home. Thanks for a great rally

    I thought the concept was great, the transportation was effective and I had a great time.

    If we had a larger college campus, with the hotels right nearby (like in walking distance) it would have been absolutely perfect.

    The vendor area was fantastic and I liked having a place to walk to for lunch that didn't have a line a mile long.

    Our hotel was a terrific value and it was fun to party with some of my buds that were also staying at that hotel.

    See you cats in Spokane!

    Some bikes. Some with motors, some without.

    OK...you weren't happy. Can you perhaps post some ideas for improvements with your criticism? That way mistakes can be avoided at future events.
