    How about a membership drive, in the interest of us still being around in 2072?

    Creative based on a 50-something (no pun intended) concept, cheap printed promo cards that can be handed out or mailed by chartered clubs, Motorrad dealers, aftermarket parts sellers, social media push with link to join page on our site, big bonus at the rally...

    If we had a mobile app, people could play along as they rode in...

    Go soothingly through the grease mud, as there lurks the skid demon.

    I think that is a great idea. What a great opportunity to promote the value of club membership concurrent with the celebration of the club's anniversary.

    Mike; I attach the funniest and best response to the "never go fargo" movement to this date:

    Did you know that “go far” and “a frog" are anagrams, of sorts, for Fargo.
    And when combined they become “afroggofar”, which is a Welsh word meaning “Fat Chance” in English.
    ... quoted by a guy in Montana

    Not that it matter's much... should Fargo happen in 2022!

    Question

    Next year's thoughts and planning; not so far away considering the Rally's location is generally announced during the upcoming March/April Board Meeting.

    The "nearly annual" family reunion; our National Rally will not be it's 50th edition ... the Club's celebration at the 2022 venue expects to be lively!

    In the Central Zone (Red)... just wondering where?

    A report of little interest (in that 2021 has not even happened)...

    Last weekend was the first official MOA Club endeavor of the new calendar year, in Florida the BMWNEF Winter Rally.

    As always, a good venue to inquire of those who may know a few things... even future stuff.

    Here's the thing; when you discuss the 2022 Rally and it's Central Zone possibilities... about all you get is, "anybody riding from Florida will have pretty far to go".

    I'm guessing that rule's out most of Mississippi!

    Ahhh Oooo Hmmm. Some would think time travel was involved. But anybody that is good at math knows that: (RS + deserted highways) = "making excellent time"

    And eastern Montana is made for "making excellent time".
