Sue Miller’s Mid-America Freedom Rally 101

MAFR-Logo

Mid-America Freedom Rally XXVIII is brought to you by FORR Locals 7, 10, 13, 28, 29, 33, & 35.

If you have attended any of the previous 27 annual Mid-America Freedom Rally events you may have noticed Sue Miller. Sue has never met a stranger at a rally since the first MAFR was held in Freeburg, Missouri in 1988. She is an “unofficial” member of the “unofficial” welcoming committee- and is always quick to say hello to everyone. She has also been a member of the planning committee off and on for the last 10 years- and is just as enthusiastic about this year’s 28th Annual MAFR at Buckhorn, Missouri as she was for that first event. She has seen some changes throughout the years, and watched the rally grow into one of the largest in Mid-Missouri. Last year’s rally had 1,890 people through the gate. They show up for the camaraderie, the campfires, the field games, the bikes, the poker runs, the live music, the vendors, the Mr. Buns and Ms. Buckhorn contests- and most importantly to remember and celebrate those who gave their lives for our Freedom. Sunday night’s Rolling Thunder tradition will give you goose bumps- and will stick with you until the next MAFR.

Sue Miller MAFR 2015

Sue Miller and her Harley at MAFR XXVII in 2015. Don’t forget to tell her hello!

In our book, Sue’s 27 year attendance streak makes her a Mid-America Freedom Rally expert- so we gathered some tips and advice from her to share with you.

#1- Leave the pets, attitudes, firearms, large knives and kiddos at home. No one under 18 is admitted to Mid America Freedom Rally.

#2- Tent camping is free, 4 wheeled hauled campers & RV’s cost $10 more. If you need a nearby hotel room visit www.midamericafreedomrally.com or www.PulaskiCountyUSA.com for suggestions.
