The Iowa Rally Gets Published

Of course, you can't mention this rally without speaking of the late Keith Dempster and how he founded this gathering of BMW enthusiasts on his farm way back in 1976. I still believe Keith coined the phrase "If you build it, they will come" although that has yet to be confirmed.
