    Hello Rally-goers!

    As of right now, the MN rally is still on, but the final decision will come on April 16th. I'm hopeful that we can "flatten the curve" enough to see you all in June!

    Steve, the Events tab on the main menu bar still has the date of 5-29 through 5-31 listed as good dates even though many other rallies have listed either cancelled or the new dates. Might solve some confusion if someone corrected the Events Tab information.

    So is it really Tuesday (Sept. 22) through Sunday (Sept. 27)?

    I'm assuming the dates still need to be tweaked a bit, because Sept. 22 through Sept. 27 is Tuesday through Sunday, which would be a lengthy Hiawatha Rally.

    Not complaining, just wondering.

    canceled

    The Hiawatha Rally:

    The unanimous decision of the Board is that the club will not hold the Hiawatha Rally in 2020. The September dates are cancelled.

    The Board is concerned for your health and safety, and that of our rally guests at Money Creek, who come from all over. It seems unlikely that we will be able to safely, or even legally, host a large group gathering in September, even outdoors at Money Creek.

    Anyone who is pre-registered now will be automatically registered for the 2021 Hiawatha Rally, June 4th, 5th, and 6th. Registrants may alternatively request a refund or a club credit towards dues, or banquets, for example.

    Enough sad rally news. Money Creek Campground is open and will welcome motorcycle campers, but not our large, and sometimes boisterous, group. Not this year. Please visit them if you ride in their neighborhood, and let them know we look forward to gathering there next year. Eat an ice cream cone outside. Camp there, if you choose, and ask for a BMW club rate.
