The Bike Show

During the Party on Sunday we will be having our version of a bike show. We have thought long and hard about the prizes we would be giving out. We thought instead of the typical trophy and a hardy pat on the back, we should give out prizes that motorcyclists would actually use everyday. Like this. You will have to wait till sunday to see all the prizes, (in all their awesomeness!) But without further adieu… The Categories!

BEST BIKE The overall best bike on the run.
THE ALMOST MEMORIAL JOE SCRAPER BEST BRITISH BIKE AWARD The best british bike on the run.
HIGH MILAGE Is awarded to the person who rode the farthest to the run
THE MacGyver This prize is awarded to the person who completes the best roadside repair.
ROLLING DEATHTRAP This prize is awarded to the person who completes the run on the bike that shouldn’t have made it.
THE BMF This prize is awarded to the person who goes above and beyond, Has the highest batting average, can pull off wearing plaid, can carve a Tiki out of a thousand year old oak tree equipped with nothing more than razor sharp wit. The Bad MotherFucker.

This year we are adding something else.
THE SUPER AWESOME ROBOT LUNCHBOX WITH FIGHTING SPRIT RAFFLE
We are going to combine a triditional 50/50 with a raffle. You buy a ticket to get a chance to go home with the ULTIMATE GYPSY RUN GIFT BAG and a pocket full of cash! Beat that H.O.G Rally!

The bike show is only open to bikes on the run. The raffle is open to everyone.

Camping

We have found some amazing accommodations for this years run. Friday night’s campground is actually an old horse racing track. The owner has graciously let us pitch our tents for the night, and he will be opening the main building so we can have use of the facilities. It is a half a mile from a liquor store. A mile from a gas station/grocery store. There is a bike shop within five miles, and there are some great local diners. Did I mention that we will be the only people there? Perfect!
Saturday night set up is a traditional camp ground with traditional camp ground amenities. Pool, Bathroom, shower, Etc. We have reserved Area 51 for the Beer garden and the pavilion for setting up camp. There is local gas, food and a bike shop within 10 miles. The campground is just few miles from the bar of legend! The guys that were on the first Gypsy Run know what I am talking about, the rest of you are just gonna have to wait and experience it yourself!
Ya know what they say, nothing in life is free… oh wait. actually friday night is free. Ya know what they say, nothing on saturday is free. That they are right about, saturdays camping will cost you $12.50. But, to make up for that inconvenience I will buy everyone beer.
