[QUOTE=feldis »]I would like to volunteer for the beer tent. Please tell me when and where to report?[/QUOTE]
Ok rally master now I know where to report. When can I volunteer? This will be a great rally.July 21, 2009 at 1:11 pm #61697
Anyplace would be fine. Right nolw the largest need is in registration and security.
[B]Registration[/B] – meet and greet and take money.
[B]Security [/B]- Show me your wrist band.
Also everyone needs to be in publicity. It works like this. Go to both rallies if possible. I am going to attend both but am flying out to Oregon – free tickets on Southwest – hard to beat.
Also am retired so the week out and the week back would not be a problem. But I am so dedicated to Pownal being one of the best every that I will be on-site the 10 days before the rally
But some folks have limited time. Kearney, Nebraska is the midpoint between the two rallies. 1800 miles either way to either rally.July 21, 2009 at 1:11 pm #61699
Ok, we’re all set. we have reservations in Williamstown. We would like to pre register, so will be waiting on the info for that to come out. See ya’all in Pownal. Kenny…July 21, 2009 at 1:11 pm #61700
Williamstown is a real fine piece of historical architecture. And the art museum is one of the best in America. Then there is the Mohawk Trail where the riding is … unbelievably great.
Be sure to check out the tunnel city coffee house.
Come back any time folks and post a question. If I don’t know the answer … I’ll find it … or make one up! [IMG]http://i58.photobucket.com/albums/g264/PaulBach/Smilies/tweetywink.gif[/IMG]July 21, 2009 at 1:11 pm #61702

Ok Mr. Rallymeister….
What groups are providing the musical entertainment?July 21, 2009 at 1:11 pm #61448
[QUOTE=osbornk »]Besides the MOA, to much stuff going on in July that books up the best places. There are plenty of good places available after Labor Day when schools start in most of the country. Either then or May before school is out.[/QUOTE]
That is exactly my problem!! I am a teacher and I have never been able to attend an RA rally because of the dates. I was going to attend this years, but at the MOA I found out my father-in-law passed away and had to attend the funeral in Germany the week of the RA National.
HU also had their Meeting in North Carolina after school started and attendance was down by about 30%.
I won’t be able to make the MOA in Oregon and it seems I won’t ever be able to make RA National. Oh, well… Think I’ll ride up to Labrador!! 🙂July 21, 2009 at 1:11 pm #61704
The Hemmings site is about a 15 minute ride from the rally in Pownal.July 21, 2009 at 1:11 pm #61705

Hey all; Well here it is, the seventh of November, and STILL no confirmation on the rally location! I thought it was going to be announced in October? I realize that the rally season is still months away for those of us in the northern part of the country, but it would be nice to be able to schedule vataction times and such…. I’d still like to see it held in conjuntion with either the vintage rally at Barbers, or maybe the AMA vintage rally. I’m sure it will be great regardless of location!!!

I went up there about two or three weeks ago and took a bunch of pictures:

rumor has it the 2010 rally will be in the Catskill region of New York State
update: although it will be in the Catskill region of NYS it will NOT be at Hunter Mtn where the MOA had Color in the CatskillsJuly 21, 2009 at 1:11 pm #61964
Thanks for the pictures. Can’t wait to see the landscape covered with a couple of thousand bikes.
