A salute to our MOA Pioneers By Norm Phoenix #1222


MOA PIONEERS INCLUDE THE 31 people who attended all of the first ten BMW MOA International Ral- lies and include some of the found- ing fathers of our organization such as the first MOA president, vice president, treasurer, and editor. Also included are some of the key people who helped develop and advance the MOA and its rallies in those early years. Overall, our group includes 11


Ambassadors, 10 past officers and directors, eight Distinguished Ser- vice Award recipients, one Meritori- ous Service Award recipient and two recipients of the One Million Mile award. Each year since the 10th rally, the


Pioneers get together for an anniver- sary dinner, and of the nine Pioneers remaining, I was the only one of the nine that was able to make this year’s rally. So how do you hold a Pioneer Dinner with only one Pioneer? For


the past few years, we have had some high rally attendees as our regular guests at the dinner. This year, our high rally attendees included Terry Clark, Tom Ha rb r e c h t, Dick Hautau and their companions. We also had MOA President Wes Fitzer and First Lady Paula Fitzer in attendance, making nine people altogether. The eight remaining Pioneers unable to make this year’s rally include Sue Atria, Milton Hall, Susan McCallister, John Moore, Marty Simpson, Chuck Smith, Betty Smith, and Dave Swisher. The culmination of the Pioneer Events


was the presentation of the Perfect Atten- dance Award on stage during the Satur- day’s Closing Ceremonies. I am now the


only Pioneer to maintain perfect atten- dance by attending all 45 rallies and also have the distinction of having ridden a BMW motorcycle to all. High rally attendees Terry Clark, Leland


Prothe, Slina Prothe, Tom Harbrecht, and Dick Hautau stood on stage with me as I received the award. I believe that this is the first time that they have been publically recognized for their remarkably high rally attendance, and that made the event feel more complete.


Security keeps rally-goers safe By Gray Buckley #27846


MORE THAN 100 HIGHLY SKILLED, good looking and well-groomed MOA members stepped forward to help protect our 2017 rally from enemy attack and unruly forest ani- mals. Reinforced by an overnight con-


tract security team when rally gates were locked, the work directed toward the safety of everyone and everything at the State Fair Park was largely successful, with an ambulance or two called to offer assistance for some dehydration issues and other pre-existing conditions.


92 BMW OWNERS NEWS October 2017 Additionally, a middle-of-the night


fire in one of the food trucks was caught by our alert security team and along with the prompt response from fire fighters stationed at the northeast edge of the Fair Park, no other trucks were damaged. Our thanks to each and every secu-


rity volunteer and to all the other attendees who consistently demon- strated respect and courtesy for their colleagues.
