[QUOTE=osbornk »]The MOA Raly in 2009 is in Gray Tennessee. It’s pretty darn rural (I live 60 miles away). I think the only way it got to be in such a rural area is because it is near the NA$CAR track in Bristol, TN. They figure if the area can handle 160,000 race fans twice a year, they should be able to handle 10,000 or so attendees at a motorcycle rally.
The response since the announcement of the 2009 rally has been very positive where it was very negative at the 2008 rally location in Gillette.[/QUOTE]
That part of TN is beautiful and there is also much more in the way of facilities than in Gillette. Have you head how Gillette happened to be selected? I remember the rally in Missoula 10 or 12 years ago which was wonderful.
