    I'll predict your going to receive a lot of ideals, and become very popular with our membership... with your request of "nice stuff"!!!

    I'll take "MORE" Shower Trailer's... that are properly attended to on a daily basis and with a semblance of cleanliness.

    Thanks again Tori,

    +1 Healthy, fresh food options would be awesome. Frankly, the food options in Lebanon were pretty awful.

    Possibly have a free or very cheap MSF beginning rider course.
    A good family discount
    Just a thought
    Since the BRC is a full two day course, that might be a bit challenging to market. In addition, it's a bit redundant relative to Camp GEARS.

    A few years ago, the RA coordinated with Lee Parks Total Control to offer the Advanced Rider Course (ARC) during their Rally in PA. From what I heard, it was quite popular. The intermediate rider course might be of interest, too.

    Something similar to the GS Giants course, but for street bikes, open to all who want to test or improve their low speed skills.

    Shuttle drivers (or step-on guides) who provide a run down of the rally grounds layout. It usually takes me two days to find everything, but if a short shuttle ride provided guide service we could get up to speed more quickly.

    And Glenlivet wants ice cream. Really good vanilla ice cream with no artificial sweeteners (toxic to dogs).
    '18 R1200GSA for solo rides
    '12 R1200GSA with Hannigan sidecar for rides with Glenlivet
    '15 Honda CRF250L for exploring places I'm afraid to take the big GSA!

    Got it, thanks. I appreciate the replies from you and others.

    I am not a rally-go-er. I only asked because there is a Great Falls National Park quite nearby to me here in Virginia.

    Not everyone likes to camp on site. Of those who do not many would like to partake of the beer tent and entertainment but do not to avoid issues with drinking and riding. A shuttle service to nearby motels would be excellent.

    If we are trulyinterested in getting young people to attend we have to offer events there that make them want to attend. Things like the GS track, maybe some dirt bike contests or a flat track race of some sort. Beer gardens are for us old folks and vendors are for those of us with disposable income. Not so much for the young person with a family. If we can make the rallies more family oriented so mom and dad “and the kids” have things to do that are not dorky, we stand a better chance of making the rally a family vacation and not just a dads week out to ride...maybe check out some of the more popular dirt bike events to see what possibilities we could offer up...maybe we could make a family section where kids would be in close proximity to other kids so they naturally get out and play together.......just my two cents.

    I was 31 with a very small income when we attended our 1st National and I was in heaven when we walked into the vendor area.
