    BA-DA BA-DA BING BANG RALLY - Atlantic, IA

    Thank you for the kind words. Some further explanation on my decision. Currently our state (Iowa) governor has only issued one "order" that will effect the Rally. We do NOT have any type of "stay at home order". We do NOT have a requirement to wear a mask in public. We do have forced...

    BA-DA BA-DA BING BANG RALLY - Atlantic, IA

    It appears I am a little late on announcing my decision. ARISE has NOT been able to have any meetings to discuss the Rally. There has been no request to the City Council for a parade permit. The Owner / Operator participation gifts have NOT been ordered. All work on the construction of the...

    There are about 70 individuals that receive the "informational" emails including three "group lists" of about 20 per list. So . . . maybe 130 or so folks in the Super Secret Club. I do imagine some of those folks forward the messages to others. I am not all that concerned about somebody...

    It just seems like only a year ago that it was time for the BA-DA BA-DA BING BANG Rally. Well . . . . it is time again. Mark your calendars. It is a easy date to remember - May 16th. The reason it is such an easy date this year is because it is the same day as the National MVPA convention...

    Not sure why all of the BA-DA BA-DA BING BANG threads are scattered, so I will just post this here. It might be kind of long, but it sure is informative. :-D BA-DA BA-DA BING BANG RALLY May 19, 2019 SUBJECT: After Action Report (2019) This was the fifth year for this event...

    The cannon barrel is solid "1045" steel. It was lined with solid rust on Saturday (and that was before I shot it). It took three ignition cartridges before it would dry out enough to fire. Of course, I had already loaded it just prior to firing so it was imperative that I got it to shoot -...

    Yep, the weather was a bummer - but being in the Army for 25 years, I got rained on that one other time. :wink: Some of those photos I promised. (NOTE: Of all the things I can do, taking decent photographs is probably not one of the things I do really well.) You know how sometimes, when...

    I will be there as early as 6:30. You won't have to be here that early. :-D I expect the public will start arriving at 9:00 AM. They always show up shortly after the vehicles start arriving - although I tell them not to leave early, as some (most?) of the vehicles will not get here that...

    Yep, the start of a very busy week for me - almost an hour by hour timeline of things to do (including the things that I need to get out of the way so I can do the Rally). - and I LOVE it! :naner:

    Are we still planning on going out for supper Friday night? We have another couple coming up from Kansas - same motel as you. There is also a gentleman coming over from Nebraska on Friday night. I am not sure which motel he is in, but we did do supper last year. I hope all of us can eat...

    I started putting out posters today. I was at the City Council meeting last night getting the approval for the "parade permit" for the Cruise. While I was there, the news staff from the radio stations asked me about doing an interview to promote the event. I went to two different motels...

    There is no registration REQUIRED, but I do like to know who is coming. It makes local advertisement and lunch/headcount easier. (I provide a free meal for the Owner/Operators. :-D) I have sent you a PM.
