The final details are being worked up -- it awaits final approval by a local town council. Hold Sunday, May 22, in reserve. When it becomes final next week I will report the details here and add an entry to the Rallies & Events page.

good to hear something......

I, too, have been wondering and waiting......My first experience with this group was at this event a number of years ago.
Strangely, about three weeks ago, I posted a question directly to the overseers......There was no answer.
Ride Fast and Safe!

Here are the Mayday Rally details. Kurt will probably have this up in the Rallies & Events page later today, with a map location.

I don't know...

if I'll be able to go this year seeing that it's only one day (Sunday) and there is no overnight camping.

The day before, my fire department is doing our annual spring chicken barbecue and I probably will be there until midnight and to get up at 5:00 to get to the rally is just not do-able.

Just curious, what happened to the place we had last year? The property owner acted as if he liked having us there.

Too bad, this will be the first Mayday rally I've missed in about 30 years and my mom around 20 years.

My first

I will make it to my first May Madness and am a new member. I'm looking forward to meeting those of you I have read and read about. I'm bringing my 1983 R80RT Pacific blue and the Mrs. The "new" 1959 R60 is not running yet but I would love to get advice. If it's warm enough I'll have my "If You Want to be Happy" T shirt on. Please say Hi and introduce yourself to this BMW old timer. Thanks
Ralph Hudson, Gilmanton (Payton Place) NH

Yes please!

I did get to the '12 May day (on the 22nd) rally. It was cool and damp but we had a good time and I got to purchase a manual from Chris and Barb so it was a productive day. Roland brought his ISDT bike. I too hope the event is in the planning stages and that it will happen. If so I'll be there. how about the 11th and/or12th? On the next weekend the S. Maine BMWMOA group have a camping event so maybe that would be a conflict for some but the 25th and/or 26th work too. Any plans? Repeat '12 at the same site? I left before any fights broke out so I think it went well.
Ralph

Mayday is off

I asked Roland about it. His feeling is that because of the continual price rises for the location, the low attendance in the last couple years and the fact that the big draw was the swap meet, which has faded because of eBay and other such locations on the internet, that it isn't worth putting on any longer. Sorry.
