    Raffle?/ Sweepstakes?

    Will there be a SuperSweepstakes for the rally this year? Have I missed the info?

    I'm wondering that myself. Haven't seen anything on it yet. So, as far a I can tell, you haven't missed anything on the subject, yet!

    If there was, you would have seen something by now. AFAIK, no sweepstakes this year.

    Patience, Grasshoppers! A little later this year, all will be revealed! It will be worth the wait.

    Sweepstakes announcement in June issue of "BMW Owners News"

    Greetings from Texas, y'all.
    I just received my June BMW Owners News in the mail.
    There was a brief mention on page 23, "What's Coming?"
    • "The next Superstakes launch will be in July"

    Therefore the official announcement with all the eye candy will apparently be included the July issue of BMW-ON -- Probably sent by email to members as well.
    Following tradition the sweepstakes drawings should be held at the 2014 BMW MOA Rally in St. Paul, MN, July 24-27.
    All the best to you.

    UPDATE/CORRECTION:
    Contrary to my earlier speculation, the 2014 Superstakes multi-bike drawings will not "follow the tradition" of the earlier national rallies -- Rather they will occur later in the year. Thanks to Ted Moyer for the info.

    That only leaves a couple weeks to sell tickets.
    I'm guessing the drawing will not be at the National this year, but later in the year. Like I said, I'm only guessing.

    Just as long as it's not a last ditch effort as a Rally attendance incentive, that "cuts against" the discount members receive by pre registering by end of June. Any lack of planning on their part (MOA) should not constitute loss of opportunity on my part! IMHO

    Timing for the Superstakes this year will be the Fall. No relation to the Rally for 2014. It will be worth the wait. I promise!

    Sweepstakes

    I don't know if you are having problems with state laws on the raffle again this year but I will tell you that I enjoyed the live one in Sedalia two years ago. That was fun watching the brand new bikes being rolled out and given away. Just not the same if its not live. It was like Vegas.

    Seems Missouri is one of the few states that permits a raffle on that scale....It was fun!!!

    June 2014 BMW ON page 25 has more details. "The next Superstakes will start at the rally and will end in December, and we'll have a one bike raffle for a new R NineT".

    The National will raffle off one bike, or the Superstakes will be a one bike raffle?

    Edit: I read page 25 and it looks like the Superstakes will be one bike and will be raffled off Feb. 2015.

    Greetings:
    I regret my earlier post was made before reading the information on Page 25. I missed this info and based my post and speculation on the info on Page 23 which was somewhat brief and not detailed.
    After re-reading both announcements - Pages 23 & 25 - It appears that that there will be at least two drawings:
    • The next multi-bike "Superstakes will start at the rally and end in December..."
    • The "one-bike raffle for the new R nineT" will be "raffled in February 2015".


    So unlike last year, the Superstakes multi-bike drawings will not be held at the national rally in July - Just the official "start" of the Superstakes.
    All the best.
