TULELAKE, CALIFORNIA -- The Shasta Salute to America Motorcycle Rally will be held from 8:00am Thursday, August 28th – 11:00am Monday, September 1st 2008 in the Northern California town of Tulelake (pronounced “too-lee-lake.”) in Siskiyou County – a paradise for motorcyclists. The Tulelake Chief of Police was recently quoted in the Siskiyou Daily News stating, “We will welcome them (bikers) with open arms…” After being forced to move the rally from a town where the opposite stance was taken by the police, how’s that for a switch?
The Shasta Rally’s theme is to honor our nation’s service people & to celebrate our freedom to ride our motorcycles anywhere we want. The AVTT (American Veterans Traveling Tributes) will be displayed at the entrance to the venue where the entire public can pay their respects. The Shasta Salute to America Motorcycle Rally is an adult event. ALL bikes are welcome. You must be 18+ to pay to come inside the venue.
Our bands & event schedule are off the hook! The riding in the region is second to none with Crater Lake on breathtaking Hwy. 62 just a 90 minute ride away. Biker bull busting & old school rodeo games along with a corset contest, arm wrestling contest & a tattoo contest provides vacationing bikers the fun stuff they enjoy. Prizes & trophies will be awarded. On Saturday, the patriotic theme of the Rally will be emphasized. To cap the patriotic theme of the day off, living legend, Charlie Brechtel & the Charlie Brechtel Band & Heidi Newfield, the former lead singer of Trick Pony, will be headlining at the EZJ Concert Field – a venue that will accommodate 7,000. Between Charlie’s & Heidi’s performances, military veteran speakers will address the crowd including the co-founder of Operation Gratitude, a charity held in the highest regard in the military community. Incredible musicians are scheduled every night. Following our headliners’ shows, the party can move back in to the Wings2Fly Saloon – a 12k square ft. indoor biker bar staffed by the hottest lookin’ friendliest bartenders & cocktail waitresses in the business. We also have awesome bands booked to play in the bar including our “house band,” National Dust & the biker blues band, “Give Me Back My Wig.”
The Shasta Salute to America Motorcycle Rally will not be a slick corporate bike show or a biker boutique taking place in a community that discriminates against bikers. Folks who attend the 2008 rally will be talking about this rally for years to come & telling everyone, “You shoulda been there!” Don’t miss out. Purchase your tickets now. We offer discounts to groups of 10 or more. To learn more about what is destined to become the premiere true motorcycle rally that always gives bikers their money’s worth & an opportunity to gather as a united community to pay their respects to our nation’s military & celebrate the joy of riding, visit our website:
