Wendy Naessens is a professional rider, BMW U.S. Riders academy Instructor in training, and an unofficial ambassador to the BDR & BMW MOA organizations. She was also in the Wyoming Backcountry Discovery Route movie and will tell us what that was like.
Delicious barbeque from Bolligers retaurant On Friday night, the inimitable Drew Alexander will make his delicious chili. A vegetarian option is available if specified when you register below. Saturday night's BBQ dinner will be catered by Bollinger's Family Restaurant of Thurmont, MD. Famous for Uncle Dirty's barbeque sauce, they have satiated rally hunger for a couple of years now. We are thrilled to have them return. Last year, they had beef brisket, pulled pork, and chicken barbeque. Their sides were coleslaw, beans, mac and cheese, and cornbread. On Saturday and Sunday mornings, we will provide light breakfast fare such as Danish, fruit, and yogurt. We do not include lunch but there are a variety of eateries in the area.
Tiki Beer Garden We have beverages available on-site at the infamous Tiki Garden Bar. Beer and wine will be available. The open-air Tiki is popular with cigar aficionados. Everybody else takes their drink and wanders to the campfire where the smoke is slightly less pungent.
2022 Rally Tee Tee-Shirt has a small club logo on front and a large rally logo on back The "performance fabric" tee-shirts were so popular in the past that we are again using 4 oz., 100% micro-polyester, moisture-wicking, UPF 30+ protection material for this year's rally tee-shirt. This is a picture of last year's shirt. We are working on the design for this year's shirt. Come back to this page for updates. After you register, you can return to this page and just order a shirt.

Camping at Camp West Mar Camping at Camp West Mar Camping at Camp West Mar modern and comfortable bunk houses
Professional battlefield guide The Saturday guided tour to the Antietam Battlefield is extra cost because we will hire a professional battlefield guide. The National Park Service vetted and certified these pros for their knowledge of history and ability to communicate. For a modest fee of $17, you will join our group led by an expert in history and storytelling. You will learn what happened, why it happened, and who the poor souls were who suffered through it. Heavy rain may cancel this tour. If that happens, we will refund the fee.

This rally is open to anybody who likes BMW motorcycles even if a different marque is on their tee-shirt.
