BMR 2020 Banquet

Consistent with all aspects of this rally, all attempts have been made to keep the cost low and the value high. The main focus of the banquet is to showcase the amazing efforts and fun that we’ve seen during BMR2020. This is a great venue and a homecoming of sorts as BMR banquets 2012, 2013 and 2014 were all in Minden / Carson Valley Inn. We’re excited to be coming back to our roots.

September 05, 2020
Carson Valley Inn
1627 US Highway 395 N Minden, NV 89423
(Do *not* attempt to book your rooms yet!  Use your discount code provided when you buy your banquet ticket.

The location is awesome and the comments from previous years’ attendees were all positive.  Being at the foot of the Sierra Nevadas, you have limitless options.  The immediate area offers great sites and fantastic riding.  Also, inexpensive airfare into Reno for those who choose to fly. Some riders are planning to have their spouses fly in. Some riders are taking mini-vacations in the area.

(Note: Wagering on riders is not allowed in the BMR scoring area, but feel free to visit the Casino Sportsbook to wager on BMR results and your favorite rider.

You have options for king bed or two queens. Keep in mind our discount block is not forever and is first-come, first-serve. The earlier you reserve, the higher the likelihood of getting what works best for you. Also, they will allow you to increase your stay if you’d like to stay more nights at discounted rates.
YOU ARE NOT REQUIRED TO STAY HERE.  However, we don’t believe it will be possible to beat the value of being at the same place as the banquet -as they have provided us good pricing on rooms with various options.
CVI has been generous with our discount, it is aprox 40% off their going rate. No resort fees or hidden line items. NOTE: There is a surcharge for those staying Saturday only. This $15.00 charge will be waived for those staying two nights. Said another way: $15.00 discount for staying two or more nights.
Here is a breakdown on costs:
Saturday May 23 $134.00 (minus $15.00 if staying two nights)
