May 12, 2007 BMW MOA Board of Directors Meeting
St. Louis, Missouri
Present: President Dave Swider, Vice President Deb Lower, Treasurer Bob Malehorn, Directors Greg Feeler, Chuck Manley, Linda "Helen Twowheels" Hedden, and Karol Patzer, Executive Director Ray Zimmerman, Media Editor Vince Winkel, Deputy Editor and Recording Secretary Mandy Langston, Staff IT Glenn Hanlin, Advertising Director Ted Moyer, Accountant Bill Knott, MOA Office and Logistics Manager Tammy Leuthauser, Chartered Club Liaison Robert "Koop" Cooper, Ambassador Liaison Don Faichney, Consumer Liaison Paul Johnson, 2007 International Rally Chairs Sue Rihn-Manke and Brian Manke, BMW MOA Foundation Vice President Bradford Benn, and approximately 8 members at large. Directors Michael Friedle and Rob Nye were not able to attend.
So did Rob ride to be a shill, and as BoD member ?
I thought he resigned to do this event to be above board yet there must be a typo in the approved July 2007 minutes.

So maybe Bobs BMW needs to start a race team to move to the front of ON. Maybe ramp up the current ads beyond parts and ebay.
Is there a bidding mechanism so one dealer can't be favored over another in the MOA's "global reach" ?
Which dealer is now board approved ?
Why should anyone care ?
Its just a club publication designed to benefit everyone equally, some more equal than others.
From the OP himself.
"In addition to supporting my LD riding, Max is big on supporting events. Max makes my 24hr Rally, the Minuteman 1000 one of the best by insuring our riders have the best bang for the buck in the sport.
Max also supports his customers who want to race through getting us involved in Rally Moto. He also sponsors track days, GS rides and much more. Obviously I will tell you to spend your motomoney with Max but hey I am biased. I will say that the buddies of mine that I have watched become Max customers would also tell you that Max ROCKS!
It is an honor to be supported by Max."
Sign of the times?
