    Smile The Celebration: Our Club's 50th Anniversary in 2022 National Rally - Springfield MO!

    The rendezvous at Ozark Empire Fairgrounds, June 16-18.

    Can you believe it... 50 Years of the BMWMOA in 2022 !

    Our "nearly annual" family reunion; this National Rally will NOT be its 50th Edition...
    however, this Club Celebration expects to be lively!

    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?
    Good observation. So, just for the sake of the argument, what kinds of activities would be some combination of fun or educational to celebrate the 50th Anniversary? I expect that there are people working on this already, but maybe folks on the forum can come up with some good ideas?

    Just what I was hoping for! And not just the "where at" aspect for 2022.

    At the Rally, I can envision the following.

    Educational: Also read as Club Historical. An indoor venue, a nicely outfitted in museum manner layout.
    A call for memorabilia from our members, where chosen items could be displayed via "decade and year within" layout.
    Much of this would likely be Rally and Club related material... it's all about our members.
    A section within decade/year, each illustrating/recognizing Club Leadership, Ambassadors, Volunteers and significant events.
    I would be really nice to display a members bike from EVERY year since our inception, in front of the period exhibits!
    Every High Milage Award holder should be acknowledged, along with our Club's other important Award recipients.
    Recognize our Pioneer's.
    Can you imagine an entrance attraction of... the tent and bike of Norm Phoenix, displayed in a camp set-up! (His original tent, he still rides in and erects it every National!)
    Finally, a special "Founder's" Tribute Centerpiece.
    Simply title the crown jewel of the exhibit using the historic words of our Club's First President...
    Mr. Vern Hansen: "We were all looking for something, and we found it in 'MOA".

    Celebration wise: At the 2022 Rally, we will never do better than the troupe "Living Glockenspiel"... who entertained at WI in 2007!

    And if we need to go back to Wisconsin for that... it works for me!

    Nice work! I especially like the recognition of the people who started the club so many years ago. There is nothing to nurture and grow until someone germinates something.

    Good suggestions John. I feel confident those in charge of that rally are taking notes.

    Do you really think we could be so organized as that?
