    2014 Rollin' by the River Rally including registration info and updates

    We've been having some great discussions about the upcoming rally, but we want to make sure you ALL know that you're invited to enjoy "Rollin' by the River" and Visit St. Paul.

    The 42nd BMW MOA International rally will be held July 24-27, 2014

    Location: MINNESOTA STATE FAIRGROUNDS, St. Paul, MN
    Registration Coordinates are: 44 degrees, 59’ 17.46" -93 degrees, 10’15.48”

    Minnesota..best known as the Land of 10,000 Lakes, is also known for one Superior Lake and a Great River.

    If you're joining us from any direction, the Lake Superior Circle Tour is a ride not to be missed or meander along the "Mighty Mississip" and join in the Rollin' by the Great River Road ride: http://www.bmwmoa.org/forum/showthre...-Join-the-Ride

    The Minnesota State Fairground streets are all paved, and there's plenty of shade and grassy camping. As always we will have music, seminars, good food, plenty of vendors, and oh, yes....beer. St Paul is the home of Summit Brewery.

    Deb and I can be contacted by emailing us at: rallychair2014@bmwmoa.org

    For local information: http://www.visitsaintpaul.com/

    For Minnesota information: http://www.exploreminnesota.com/


    If you have any questions about the Rally, let's keep this thread going with questions and answers so we can have a central "campfire" thtribalcouncil.gif to share in the upcoming rally experience.

    Rally info

    Hopefully you've all received your February issue of the Owners News. Page 106 has an article from "Pineapple" regarding RV facilities.

    Page 107 has a great article by member and Seminar Co-Chair, Norine McVann highlighting a Mississippi River Ride.

    You will also notice a preliminary map on pge 109. FYI: the dashed area is primary "rally Central", but there will also be camping available in the "yellow" area. This map was intended to designate the Vendor Entrance.

    Our main Rally-Registration entrance will be to the North or from Larpeneur or Hoyt Ave. the GPS coordinates given in the first post are for the registration area.

    The March issue of ON will have a list of committee chairs so you can volunteer to a shift, and an article about a great nearby attraction: Como Zoo/Conservatory. http://www.comozooconservatory.org/

    Please check the website often for all additions regarding the rally.


    Is it July yet?? Better yet....is it Spring yet?

    Shopping

    Check out the Rally info on the MOA main page (no...not the Mall of America) for the list of early vendors who have already signed on with many more to come.

    http://bmwmoa.org/TheRally/ArtMID/31...ndor-List.aspx

    Get that shopping list started.

    You DO know that this will interfere with my assistance with the rally, don't you? Hard to turn down an SS1K...

    I doubt they will come. They are a small outfit just a few miles from me. I can swing by and see if there interested.
