    Thumbs up Rally Entertainment

    The Entertainment article by Lee is in the May issue of ON with lots of information about the bands.
    Here is initial information about the the evening entertainment Line-up:

    Beer Garden Stage - Wednesday Evening

    Johanna Winkel (performed in Sedalia, records in Nashville and is Vince's daughter - he is proud of her!)

    Ampitheater on Thursday - Saturday night

    Thurs ? David Jacobs Strain Band (performed at 2010 Rally in Redmond)

    Friday Night is sponsored by the BMW MOA Foundation with:

    Jonny Lang

    Saturday night after the Awards Ceremony
    Tommy Castro & the Painkillers
    Paul Thorn (who has been with us at several MOA Rallies - starting in 2009)

    Vince is going to put an entertainment link on the Rally portion of the Website so you can check out the bands before the rally.

    We owe a big round of applause for Lee for his 5th year of getting superb Rally Entertainers.

    Question: I registered by phone a couple of weeks ago.

    Will I be getting a confirmation email that I am registered for this event?

    Thanks!

    I spoke with Tammy at the MOA office this morning. They are still trying hard to deal with a backlog of rally registrations due to the computer issues that they've been experiencing. She told me that they expect to be catching up soon, and the emails will go out to those that gave them email addresses and snail mail for the others. Just a bit more patience and she appreciates everyone's understanding.

    Dogs at Rally site

    My wife and I and our dog will be on the bike about 7 weeks when we arrive at the rally. We will be camping and I wanted to know about a/c areas for pets. Will they be allowed in ANY buildings with a/c to cool off if it is hot? I had a friend not stay on site in OR at the last rally because of lack of cooling areas.

    Greg -- Barley and I were at the RA Rally in Chippewa Falls where the temp and humuggity were quite close to miserable. We found no shortage of ways to keep cool. We also went to Sedalia where daytime temps hit 108F. Chuck Manley quickly identified Barley as a trained attack dog and assigned us to security duty in air conditioned buildings. So there are always ways.

    My experience has been that well-behaved dogs leashed to attentive owners who are considerate of others are not a problem. Barley, a registered service dog, growled a warning to another service dog at Sedalia who was showing a bit too much interest in his nether regions. The other human and I both recognized the situation and took our dogs in different directions. Problem defused before it got off the ground. And that's how it should be - we, the owners, are responsible and if there is an incident we need to be ready to leave.

    Look us up at Salem...unless your dog is a humper.

    Got my Rally registration stuff in the mail. We also signed up for a wine tour - Salem. I'm surprised not that many people have signed up for one of the wine tours. If your going to be there for the whole thing, as we are, a little time away sounds like just the ticket. Can someone explain why the tours have not, at least so far, been popular?

    Folks probably have a variety of reasons. For me, I've always wanted to explore the PNW and intend to get a few rides in after the 5400 circuitous miles we'll ride to get there.

    It is strange....but I'll predict;

    they will get good attendance! Especially if your on site from Monday or Tuesday; the 1st wine tour is Wednesday morning'ish departure.
    You can be having a great event before on-site registration even opens! It could be the draw of the coastline nearby for a fish & chip lunch ride;
    but as mentioned... a variety of reasons. The hours of these tours are very attractive this rally; but on Thursday through Saturday,
    I take in the rally schedule along with area dinner rides. So now I gotta choose between Club training, rider education or wine & lunch tour,
    ....uh, where's that coach leave from!
