The 2018 Rally Location

I can't make it to the rally this year and was wondering when the location for next year's rally will be anounced?

Re: The 2018 Rally Location

we would also like to plan for 2018.  In years past the RA rally was in September and I see lots of continuing griping at MOA about still doing it in July.

Re: The 2018 Rally Location

We are still considering the 2018 location but It's looking like east of the Missisippi.

I'm sorry we didn't get to visit with you in Petoskey. The site, weather and friendship were great.

Re: The 2018 Rally Location

I wanted to go this year. I really like the RA rallies. Saving my pennies for a trip to Australia in December so I decided to stay home this year. Might make next year's though.

Why not West of the Mississippi?  I really liked the Rally when it was in Boise, ID

Not many folks showed up for the Rally in California.  Can't get more West than that.  Did ypu have a site in mind?

I went to the Rally in Boise. ID and it was great.  I don't know if RA can go back there but it is west and a great place to ride.  Granted, there is a larger population East of the Mississippi but!  Just a thought.

Re: The 2018 Rally Location

I can tell you that it's tentatively planned for July 19-21 but the contract is not signed yet. I hope we can announce in the next few weeks.

Well, it has been a few weeks.  Is there any info as to where the 2018 Rally will be?

Re: The 2018 Rally Location

well I see that we will endure another year of July Nationals!   If memory serves, we at one time had the RA rally in September.   I never let school dates dictate when or where I would go so I am at a loss to why this Summer stuff continues.  Does anyone know?  I think we could work around fairground schedules so what is the thinking here??

Re: The 2018 Rally Location

I myself thought the Rally in Harrison AR was pretty damn skippy as far as riding and weather... As far as school dates making a difference... I don't believe the majority of attendees to the rally are bringing kids or even have school aged kids so I cannot see where school dates should make a difference in deciding rally dates... but I am in agreement with many others... July dates suck. Nothing like enduring high 90's and low 100's peak temps while camping in a fairground field with little to no shade.

Re: The 2018 Rally Location

Some nice riding in that area.  Corning glass museum is just a bit north of there, along with the Glenn Curtiss museum.  I've already been scoping out routes from Iowa to Wellsboro.  Who will be the rally chair?

Re: The 2018 Rally Location

Any 4-hour ride in any direction away from Wellsboro is fantastic.  Pa. is amazing.

Were you at the Rally in Petosky?  Temps were 70 daytime and 50s at night. 

Are you confusing the RA with the MOA? 

Which hot rallies did you attend? 

I was at the MOA in Bloomsburg and I do not think I have ever been as hot.
