On behalf of the thousands of BMW riders who attended the 40th BMW Motorcycle Owners of America International Rally, we want to say, “Thank you, Sedalia!”
You made us feel welcome wherever we went. The staffs of the Chamber of Commerce, Convention and Visitors Bureau and Missouri State Fairgrounds supported our event 100 percent and contributed greatly to its overall success. Kudos to your entire community; from area businesses to local residents, you couldn’t have made us feel more welcome.
The extended triple-digit heat resulted in a lower-than-expected attendance, but those who did attend will be talking about Sedalia and its giant welcome mat for years. Many of our members are suggesting that we return to Sedalia in the future. From our perspective, we hope this happens.
