LAND OF OZ RALLY June 1-4th 2023

The 44th Annual Land Of OZ Rally was well attended with 103 registered participants !

Riders visited us from as far away as Washington, Texas, Iowa, Arizona, Minnesota, Nebraska, Missouri,

Oklahoma and of course Kansas attended.

Many riders were on their way to the upcoming MOA national rally in Virginia.

The new location in Paola Kansas was also a success, with plenty of camping areas,(including covered) electrical

hookups, areas for field events, music and the best indoor air conditioned building with a kitchen, tables and chairs you could ask for!

Quite a few riders set off Saturday for a long gravel road ride to a members ranch for some

offroad fun and all returned with a dusty smile!

All the events and awards were well received and many thanks to Engle Motors and those

who donated to our raffle and prize giveaways!

Also many thanks to the local Paola 4H club that made us breakfast Saturday and Sunday

morning, the food was excellent and your kids are the best!

To top things off the weather cooperated and we had no rain ALL weekend !

So much visiting and friendships rekindled, the weekend went by fast.

Thanks to KCBMWMC members Kathy and Bruce Weber ( Rally Chairman ) , Ed and Cindy Coulter, all the volunteers and participants thatmade the 2023 rally a hit ! It takes many volunteers to make this all come together ( hey the BandK played that ! ) and have it all fall into place with no issues which everyone should be proud of.

Let’s make it even bigger in 2024 !
