Thread: Earlier in the year Rally Date?

  1. #1

    Earlier in the year Rally Date?

    It always seems to be so miserably hot at the Rallies over the past few years. Has the Rally Board considered an earlier date to avoid the scorching hot summer? Or have rallies farther north, to avoid the heat if the date canít be changed.

    Just an idea that has probably already been discussed.

    Best Regards,
    Eric B.

    For 2019, the BOD moved the rally date to June. The full story is here about possible future changes:

    How far north? It's been miserably hot in ND for a couple of weeks. With humidity.

    Watch: next year it'll be miserable the third weekend in June, and just perfect the second weekend in July. Mother nature is like that.

    You want guaranteed pleasant weather, you'll have to hold the rally in San Diego.
