    maybe you've never planned, contracted or run a large event like a rally?

    it is a CF of the first order, and there is no end to the number of ways something can derail the deal. very squishy business.

    and if you aren't careful in cutting the deal, you're opening yourself up for some potentially bad disappointments at the event.

    a lot of work goes into finding a venue that fits our needs and signing a contract to stage an event there.

    Since Sedalia will be the 40th anniversary for the rally, maybe we could get the Blue Angels to do a little showing off!http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vnaT4...eature=related

    Good news: Goober Burgers for everyone.
    Bad news: How can I be gone from work for 2 weeks when the rally is only 2 hours from my house?

    How can you make a trip out there from California interesting? There is so much flat straight highway between here & there, I don't know what to do! Either that, or I'm a very poor route planner... No dirt though, & I have 4 days to get there & 3 back...

    Interesting? You don't have time for Interesting! 3 days back means over 800 miles per day. Are you in the IBA yet? Sounds like you should be applying!

    Bad at guessing distance too! Yahoo gives me about 1900 miles. Yep, better plan on at least 4 days...

    FWIW, I did Burlington IA to home in 3 days, one was short, I stopped at 4PM to visit my Grandmother in Kansas, then hightailed it from Caldwell KS home to Merced in one day... Had to stop for a half hour nap in Fresno... Never again...

    link to a rally announcement

    http://www.dealernews.com/dealernews...tegoryId=48447

    They are counting all the money spent on gas and stuff, boy when they find out how FRUGAL we are are they going to be disappointed!

    A rally within 1 tank of gas. ONE TANK, heck my butt will not even be sore. Good point is I can bring my GF.

    The Sedalia tornado came into town from the south and followed US Rte 65 north/northeast. It was east of Rte 65 before the fairgrounds. Last I read following KC news outlets about 65 structures were damaged. It was estimated as an F1 or F2 and thankfully there was no loss of life.

    Sedalia, eh? Man... That's going to be a long hour and a half ride on back roads. Not sure if I'll be able to make that. Shall I bring camping gear?
