    But Gunnison does... and it's a great HQ for any shot in Colo.

    Like maybe riding through Fargo... en-route to SANTA FE, New Mexico... in mid JUNE 2020!

    My guess is made... what's yours?

    The First correct guess could collect special recognition at that Rally and a free evening beverage... or something.

    Time for a game of speculation and prediction... from now until end of March.

    All this Moan-tana talk reminds me that "IF I HAD" a second wag at the 2020 Site... it would be Missoula MT! Yeah, that would do fine.

    We have headquartered out of Gunnison a couple times and it worked well for day rides.
    What facility do they have that can handle a National?

    How true!

    Can't wait until our dollar reaches par again, or better still, worth more than the American buck.

    It has happened in the past.

    Well, if once again the powers that be won't go along with Fargo, then it has to be at the Stampede Grounds in Calgary, Alberta. Too bad if the felons and DWI folks can't go.

    We made Trenton work once. We can do it again. Vendors don't have to haul all of their stuff with customs hassles. Some stuff, lots of brochures and/or catalogs, and on-line ordering makes it a lot easier now than back then. And Canadian vendors can have a field day. And the US $ is strong. Now is the time, or I will soon be pushing Winnipeg- right Yoda?

    Note: There not any smiley faces in this post!

    I will never again even contenplate going to such a dump fairgrounds as Bloomsburg in triple digit temperatures. Way too many hospital runs in those conditions.

    Stampede Grounds in Calgary, Alberta.
    So often times it happens that we live our lives in chains
    And we never even know we have the key

    Id do Calgary in a heartbeat! And Paul has it right on all three counts-the felons, the DWIs, and the vendors. Just do it!

    Only because about ten members - old men camping the mud - made a huge stink. The single failure at that rally was when the bus drivers who were supposed to provide shuttle service walked off the job in the evening. The MOA was a victim of a union-management dispute that was ongoing.

    While I am sure those who like to camp in the mud and urine, 29 steps from the beer tent, will disagree, it is my opinion that the Getaways prove a convention-center rally would be a real winner. The caveat is that decent camping needs to be nearby and good shuttle service is needed - the bus driver's union needs to be part of the planning. The Chamber of Commerce promises are never, ever, sufficient. They will generally say anything to get a gig. (My 30 years in City and County community and economic development give me this perspective).
