Vice President: Randall Eggert
Secretary/Treasurer: Norma Jo Quapaw


Last Meeting
I’m filling in for Randy since our usual roving reporter was… well, roving.

We had a moderate turnout for the July meeting and the discussion was casual. Several members were already enroute to the BMW MOA national rally in Salem, Oregon. We got to see a few photos on the club’s Facebook page and will hopefully hear more about their adventures later this month.

Dave called us to order and the discussion turned to rally plans for 2014 and a Fall campout. Some one made a motion we proceed on both counts and everyone agreed. Since Randy Eggert was not present at the meeting we deemed him event coordinator!

See below for more info on upcoming dates, etc.

Next Meeting
Our next meeting will be August 10th at the usual place- Legend’s Barbecue and Steak House in Owasso. Hopefully we can hook up some AV and enjoy some rally pics. You can join the event online if you’re so inclined: Facebook Event Page

Upcoming Events
We have scheduled a campout at Birch Lake in Osage County for the weekend of September 28-29, 2013. This is a small lake near Barnsdall operated by the Army Corps of Engineers.

The Indian Nations Rally for 2014 date of May 30-June 1, 2014 was proposed. If you’re thinking that’s a week earlier than this year’s event then you’re absolutely right (and you probably need a hobby). But the second week in June at the Gruber Lodge was reserved by the Army.

Nearby Rallies
Here’s a few rally events also upcoming…

  • Husker Rally – August 9-11 in Franklin, Nebraska
  • Bavarian Mountain Weekend – Sept. 6-8 in Sipapu, New Mexico
  • Lone Star Hamburger Cookout – Sept. 21 in Sulphur, Oklahoma
  • Fall Get-Together – Sept. 27-29 in Eureka Springs, Arkansas
  • Falling Leaf Rally – Oct. 11-13 in Potosi, Missouri
