Have to be an RA member to attend RA Nat'l?

My wife and I are RA members.  We don't get to rallies very often. Our last RA rally was the RA by the Bay national a long time ago.  We're thinking about going to the Petoskey national and would like to invite some other riders to join us.

Does a rider or passenger have to be a BMWRA member to register for the RA National? Can they register as my guest if they are not an RA member?

Non RA members are very welcome! See you and your friends in Petoskey!

Anyone can attend the  RA Rally.  RA members receive a discount to encourage membership.  There is also a discount for pre-registration.

Do it early.  The only way to guarantee a shirt and food is to register early.   See you there.
