    The mid-June CHIEF JOSEPH RALLY in Oregon, that was scheduled immediately before Montana's Great Falls National.

    Is CANCELED for 2021, according to the Club website announcement.

    That was the premier lead-in (week-end before) Club Rally, many travelers were planning for.
    Another opportunity eliminated by COVID concerns.
    And at the same time Texas and Mississippi just opened their states 100% ! No masks no restrictions. And I suspect more states will follow.

    The BMWRA National Rally originally scheduled for last fall was moved to May 2021 and just recently moved again to August 2021.

    Going to be a very interesting year for sure.

    Thumbs up Good News...

    For traveler's en-route for Great Falls this summer.

    It's the Red Rock Rendezvous Rally held in Panguitch Utah (June 18-20) the weekend immediately before the National.

    The Beehive Beemers (excellent website, great club) offer an attractive Club Rally with fantastic route options into Montana.

    The Club even modified their annual rally dates, to accommodate the MOA's newer June offerings.

    And they know what's coming... extra rider's.

    May I offer... a "Thank You" to L.F. Larimore (RallyMaster) and Club Officers/Members.

    Hope to see you there!

    I turned 65 today so became eligible for the vaccine here in Vermont. I logged on first thing in the morning and got an appointment for my first jab this coming Wednesday!...which means Jab #2 will happen in early April. That opens up some options for rides this year!

    Man I know that feeling! Similar timeline for me; 65 a few months back, worried most all of 2020 especially through the holidays.
    Then February in FL allowed quick progress of the vaccines, both jabs! Even for my wife who is not yet 65.

    It's simply a different mindset of optimism that flows through your soul. (...or something like that)

    As I say: "shots in the arm & you in the seat.. a 2021 ride to Montana, tough to beat!"

    Congrats !! I have another month before I hit the magic number. But for me I would go with or without the vaccine. But in NC vaccine opportunities are getting more and more available.

    Any fishermen coming to the rally.....?

    The Marias River is 60 miles north of Great Falls.




    Robbie Dockter of Conrad holds the new Montana state record brown trout caught March 3 on the Marias River. The fish weighed 32.42 pounds and
    measured 37 inches long.

    Too bad that it has been removed from the gene pool. The ones that have what it takes to get so big are the ones you want to reproduce.

    We have a re-opening "surge" developing it seems.
    Wyoming just relaxed the mask mandate... I plan a few days there in June & July.

    The horizon of summer, looking good indeed.

    Let's do this.

    The MOA and ExpoPark are obliged to comply with local public health policies. Both organizations indicated they will comply with local guidelines for masks. Great Falls and ExpoPark are located in Cascade County which at this point continues to have a mandatory mask policy. The information below is from a news release dated Feb, 18, 2021 from the Cascade County Board of Public Health and Public Health Officer:

    The Board of Health voted that they and Health Officer Trisha Gardner would:

    1. Issue a local order for Cascade County requiring universal masking, except under the following conditions:

    • Children under the age of five (all children between the ages of two and four, however, are strongly encouraged to wear a face covering, but children under the age of two should not wear a face covering);
    • Persons consuming food or drinks in an establishment that offers food or drinks for sale;
    • Persons engaged in an activity that makes wearing a face covering impractical or
    unsafe, such as strenuous physical exercise or swimming;
    • Persons seeking to communicate with someone who is hearing impaired; persons giving
    a speech or engaging in an artistic, cultural, musical, or theatrical performance for an
    audience, provided the audience is separated by at least six feet of distance;
    • Persons temporarily removing their face covering for identification purposes;
    • Persons required to remove face coverings for the purpose of receiving medical
    evaluation, diagnosis, or treatment;
    • Persons who have a medical condition precluding the safe wearing of a face covering; or
    • Persons who can maintain social distancing when outside their home or place of
    employment.

    2. Allow gatherings & events of up to 75% of an event venue’s capacity when social distancing can be maintained. Events over 75% of venue capacity will be considered on a case-by-case basis with the submission of an event plan to CCHD.

    Unless something dramatically changes, I believe those will be the conditions under which our rally will be allowed to go on.
