    Billings is often the end of day one for me leaving Calgary heading south so I can easily attend. Now to plan a longer route to get there.

    Is the Billings Rally being cut a day? 23rd through 25th, or Thursday through Saturday. I know all the action is traditionally finished on Saturday, but the Rally is usually scheduled through Sunday.

    Time frame is the same as in the past...rally officially opens 8:00 AM on Thursday, activities conclude Saturday night and Sunday is the tear down day.

    The dates for the St. Paul rally are July 24-27, Thursday through Sunday. In the case of Billings, it does indeed say Thursday through Saturday. Is this a change in the way the dates are specified for the rally?

    I'm not aware of any change and hadn't noticed the printed dates. As 2012 rally chair I always referenced the Sedalia rally dates as Thursday through Saturday and the rally logo incorporated those dates. Just looked at my 2013 Salem rally shirt and it references the Thursday through Sunday dates.

    well, isn't Sunday the official pack up and leave day with no scheduled events. So even though many of us will be there, since there are no activities, the rally is officially over. If I go I know I will be packing to leave when I wake up.

    With Vermont in 2006, Tennessee in 2009, and Pennsylvania in 2011 it doesn't seem that way to me at all.

    Guess it sorta depends on one's definition of "eastern" US. Living out here in "fly over country," I agree with you, Paul. Anyplace to the right of the Mississippi River is eastern US to me.
