    Question 2013 Georgia Mountain Rally info ???

    Was filling out my 2013 event calendar and I can't find any information on the Georgia Mountain Rally. Normally held in late April, early May at Georgia Mountain Fairgrounds in Hiawassee, Georgia.

    The BMW Motorcycle Owners of Georgia website (http://www.bmwmoga.info) is FUBAR or high jacked

    Anyone have any details?

    I "think" it's always the first weekend in May.

    Last year was 1 week later than previous. Reading the forum on bmwmoga. Looks like they may be hurting for leadership volunteers. I hope they get it together, my group loves that event.

    It was 4/30,1,2 in 2010. It was on 4/29,30,1 in 2011. It was May 4,5,6 in 2012.
    So I guess it depends on your definition of "first weekend in May". An event starting on April 29, is the last weekend in April.

    So I contend that it moved from the last weekend in April to the first weekend in May, based on start date.

    If you consider the definition as the first weekend with any May Day in it, then maybe, but not the traditional definition.

    I went back one more year, in 2009, it was may1-3.

    So given this apparent algorithm, I'd say the 2013 date is May3,4,5.

    Is it happening or not?

    Tentative date is the 1st weekend in May for the 2013 Georgia Mountain Rally (GMR) in Hiawassee. That is, Friday/Saturday/Sunday May 3/4/5. The club is waiting on a contract from the venue before confirming details.

    It would be a good ides for as many as possible to let the Georgia club president know you they are interested in the event Georgia Club President. I have sent my email to say I am keen.

    Any idea what's up with their website (http://www.bmwmoga.info)?

    Edit...

    The URL I had for the website was wrong. Goolge "Georgia Mountain Rally" and you get www.bmwmoga".INFO". Wrong!. It's www.bmwmoga.ORG, not ".info". Even this post on BMWMOA has the wrong URL.

    I am only about 2 hours ride away from the rally site. I may try to make it this year, if work doesn't interfere.

    What, you haven't figured out how to call in sick yet?
    Tell them you are having a vision problem, you can't see dragging your A$$ in!

    Works much better when there is a sick child, then you don't have to fake signs of your near death.

    I like the idea, but it would probably be better to take a vacaton day. It would be my luck for a local tv news station to do a story on the rally and catch me on video for my 15 mutes of fame.
