During the April 2018 Board of Directors meeting in Colorado Springs, Colorado, the BMW MOA Board of Directors announced three items of importance in regards to the MOA's annual rally.

Due to member feedback and after lengthy debate, the 2019 rally will be held in June. The rally dates are Thursday through Saturday, 13-15 June 2019. The Board has not committed future rallies to this same weekend in June, but will retain flexibility as the new schedule is implemented.

The location for the 2019 rally was announced as well. The 2019 MOA Rally will be held in Lebanon, Tennessee, at the James E. Ward Agricultural and Community Center/Wilson County Exposition Center.

Finally, the Board approved and announced the implementation of a new three-zone Rally Rotation Map. Following the 2019 rally in Tennessee, the 2020 rally will be held in the Western Zone, with the 2021 rally being held in the Central Zone. The rally will return to the Eastern Zone in 2022.

I've been to many rallies since the 2nd one in the Carolinas and the Mid-week June rally in Texas was great. Glad 2019 rally is in more scenic area than Des Moines. Jim, 2972

To the MOA-- You are never going to please everybody. I've only been a member for a little over a year. So, take my opinion for what it's worth. I've read a ton of negative posts about the new way and the old way. My message is don't sweat it. It sounds like Idaho was great. It sounds like Des Moines was great. Lebanon will be great, too. I'm looking forward to it. Thanks for what you do. I think mixing it up is a good thing.

My concern would be for the more severe type weather more likely to occur in the spring then in the fall.

Hi, what happened to the map? Did someone delete Canada with a pair of scissors? How about a rally in Canada again? Regards, Rod.

A June rally date rather than July is a positive move.

I like the switch to June. Not a problem for me personally but it's Father's Day weekend.

This is good news as July is considered too warm for many riders, specially if rallies were to be held in the desert regions. Perhaps the next step could be to reevaluate those venue's where the most successful rallies in the most scenic areas were held and revisit those? IMHO this would attract more riders and thus a higher revenue stream for the MOA as a result.

I like the earlier dates as they may help for cooler rides from the West. The map is very helpful in keeping track of where and when, past and present. I support this.

We have been asking for a June or September rally for years. Happy to hear that we are going to finally try that. Looking forward to it so "onward". mike

I realize Rally location selection is a contentious subject. I think the changes are a step forward. Changing the timing is refreshing. Realizing that there are security and other criteria for site selection it would be nice to have locations in less urbanized locations, IMHO. But, that's just me. In the end, if there's a rally I'm going.

A new era has dawned for the National Rally, and one I consider favorable. Along with that a zone rotation that is geographically logical! "travel'n" john ... endorses this action & commends our BOD.
