    2011 BMW RA International Rally
    Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin
    June 30 – July 3, 2011

    The Firecracker RA National will be held over the 4th of July weekend in the home of Leinenkugel’s Brewery- Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin. The rally will be held at the Northern Wisconsin State Fairgrounds; located a mile north of downtown Chippewa Falls. The fairground is a well established site of over 50 acres with lots of grass and shade for camping. This is a perfect venue for the RA rally with numerous buildings available for the vendors, seminars, beer garden, food and entertainment. You can visit the Chippewa Falls website for more information on the area. ([url]www.chippewachamber.org[/url]) or the fairground’s website ([url]www.norwisstatefair.com[/url]).

    Chippewa Falls is located about 100 miles east of St. Paul, Minnesota and just over 2 hours south of Duluth, the home of Aerostich. The area is full of small twisty back roads and numerous off-road trails for dual-sport adventures.

    Tina and Mark Doggett of Waukesha, Wisconsin are your rally chairs and looking forward to showing you a great time.

    If you are interested in helping out with the planning and preparation, contact Tina at [email]tinarashell333@yahoo.com[/email]. We look forward to seeing you in ’11.

    I usually attend the RA and MOA Nationals, and have been a member for a longtime, but having the rally on a National Holiday is makes it hard to attend. My 4th of July’s, Thanksgiving and Christmas’s are family holidays.

    This problem was looked into when the RA was making the decision on the rally dates. The problem was that the 2 dates to pick from were back to back weekends. They made the decision on the weekend of the fourth, because it gives individauls an extra day of travel that normally would have to take leave from work to attend this rally.

    I think it’s a great idea! I can ride out from Vermont earlier in the week before vacationers head out, will have no worries about finding a campsite over the holiday weekend, then can head up into Canada for the ride home. Barley and I are really looking forward to our second RA Rally!

    Just my luck….Working that weekend and being a holiday can’t get off. Enjoy! I will be thinking of you all. Had a blast 2 years ago.:) Let me rephrase this. I can attend if I can get off the days. Certainly close enough to my house than say, West Virginia? Which by the way I had a great time at. :0

    We look forward to hosting a great party in Chippewa Falls, WI. We’re working hard to give you as much information as early as possible. The website should be live with 2011 rally information in the next couple of weeks.

    For those that want to camp but don’t want to bring your tent, we’re pleased to have Sherpa Packer from CO. If you’d like to look at his site-www.sherpapacker.com

    Motel information will be provided on the website. The fairgrounds have a lot of great camping spots too.

    Mark and Tina

    The rally site is 50 acres with lots of trees. Across the street from the walk-up entrance is a fantastic park/zoo with a long walking path and a lot of buffalo, deer, small game, bear, etc. Really cool.
