    Tennessee in 2019

    Since folks in-the-know have posted to Facebook, but have failed to post the information to their very own Forum, let me be the first to announce that the 2019 BMW MOA Rally will be held in Lebanon, Tennessee, June 13-16, 2019.

    This is interesting: It is the wrong Zone, and it is in June, not July. But it looks to be a great place to ride to and from. I assume it was an opportunity too good to pass up, as we did once before when I was President - in Trenton, Ontario, Canada - in the wrong zone.

    Most of us at the meeting are just now getting back to our rooms.
    I like the idea of changing this and future rallies to June.
    I'll be on the road all day Sunday.

    As I asked a couple of our prospective Board re-electees, did we contact local clubs before announcing a change in Rally dates?

    The KCBMWMC has considered moving our date but we are under contract, but it could be negotiated with enough lead time, so as to not be bumping directly up against this rally incase The GS Giants decide to come back into the fray.

    I'm sure the Iowa Rally will be none to happy if this is the first they have heard of it.

    *Edited there is a week between us and any direct conflict. The Iowa Rally would be bumping up against a GS Giants event, and The Missouri State Rally is currently held on the same weekend (Father's day weekend.)

    Thumbs up

    ... The "Father of Clubs & National Rally's" has spoken: There will be change! So let there be harmony among my offspring... for the June-bugs are many.
    And July is getting hotter.

    Thank You Father Club... I think.

    If the Iowa Rally is the 2nd weekend of June like this year, the Iowa would end Sunday morning June 9th.

    I have appreciated the announcement earlier than at the current rally practice in the past several years and I support it. It gives me the opportunity to plan and organize other trips and activities.

    That is awesome as it looks like the people in "power" have listened long enough to member's complaints about the July heat in various locations over time. I do have to say the July isn't the best of times to have a rally unless you're at elevation somewhere. And even then it doesn't guarantee cooler temps....Gillette WY comes to mind.

    Letís face it there is no announcement MOA could make that would result in universal approval. Iíll be going next year. I wonder why they pushed back the eastern zones time?

    Respect thy club

    The numbers game! East , West, North, South ??? Where O where do I go this year. My riding season ( i.e.. destinations,rally, mini trips has been penciled since March)
    Out of respect "for" the MOA, I booked as a earlybird, for Iowa 2018
    And now, out of Respect "from" the MOA, a 2019 site has been chosen, Helmets off to thee!
    Gas 'em up, head 'em out
    I just got back from my 1st group ride with our club out of Denver. destination : Big Bend ,Tx You want heat? no problem finding it there ,,, 100 deg plus most days. Big Bend is a MC paradise . Great roads, great eats, great folk.
    I'm sure Iowa and Tenn will do the same, See ya there!
