MAKE YOUR OWN RESERVATIONS at: 1-888-386-3648 and tell them you're with the Internet BMW Riders to get the special rate or they might tell you they're full. They kind of like us and give us special rates! ***Please note, they do have a two day cancellation policy AND if you're arriving later than 9 PM please let them know so they hold the room for you.)

The Honeysuckle Inn rooms will be all non-smoking and open to the outside with a covered walkway. They have an indoor pool, complimentary breakfast and a lot of level (for Branson) parking. The meeting room seats 100 so we will be able to fit everyone in for the Saturday night event.

If you plan to come please let Karen (Smith) Mans ( know so she can add you to our officially registered updated almost daily list.

Planning on camping?

Most Scenic Camping is at Table Rock Lake State Park - 10.3 miles from the Branson. Located on Table Rock Lake - 90 camp sites. No need to reserve a site due to early season. Showers are available. To get to the State Park exit Hwy 65 approx. 4 miles south of Branson on Hwy 165. Go WEST approximately 6 miles and the State Park is on your left.

How did the B2B get started?

It all started in 1996...the East and West Coast contingents of the IBMWR - not to mention the South Coast contingent - had been riding and writing all winter long and it was definitely time for a No Coast rally, so we organized one and named it "The Blitz to Branson" (since political correctness was not valued by me or my friends). Jim and Sherryl Hair found the site and after frequent intense road explorations shared the secret with us all. You don't need a coast to have really twisted roads!

The events listed on these pages are official Internet BMW Rider events or other popular events that will be attended by IBMWR members. In order to prevent this page from becoming yet another general list of events, events should have at least one IBMWR President willing to act as a coordinator and be responsible for gethering names of IBMWR attendees, and posting frequent updates both to the list and to me for inclusion in this area.

If you would like to find out how you can get something listed on "IBMWR Current Events", contact Walker Powell, the page maintainer.
