This is my first year of attending BMW rallies and obviously my first national. Thank you to all the folks who put this stuff together! Tons of work, pretty much year long committment of time, and sometimes a "very thick skin required".
Just a few thoughts: I spoke to several locals who didn't even know what was up at the Fair Grounds, did we work with the local Chamber and media? One example: Went to Walmart for oil to get a free change and they were completely sold out; manager was shocked when I told him why.
It might be nice to find a way to help "newbies" meet and greet each other and old timers. Would definitely help build the organization, offer an opportrunity to orient new people, and connect them to the community.
Attended the discussion and update of Forum plans: GO FOR IT ! Just remember us dial up dummies!
