Hi Friends,

We hope to see you at our next event on Sept. 11-13, 2020. We regretfully announce the Summer June 26-28 Thunder in the Smokies Rally in Maggie Valley, NC is canceled due to COVID-19. Current State Regulations are preventing us from holding the June event. We sincerely thank you for all your support over the years and hope to see you in the fall. Until then ride free and safe.

Any vendor who has made a payment towards the May 1-3 or June 26-28, 2020 events will be allowed to use the money for the Fall Rallies Sept. 11-13. Please email me with your company name and verify you wish to transfer to the fall rally. handlebarcorral@aol.com
