I hope EVERYONE had a very Merry Christmas and that no one got a lump of coal.
We are almost to a New Year and the Motorcycle Grand Tour of Virginia 2018 is getting ready to gear up and start registration in January.
This year, we want to Honor Our Veterans. If not for them, we would not have the freedom so many of us take for granted. These Men and Women and their families have sacrificed more than most of us could ever imagine. Their determination and courage is what gives us the ability to do the things that other countries can only dream about. Our wonderful nation is built on their courage and sacrifice.
We are fortunate that some of our 2017 Participants are Veteran’s themselves and I had the privilege to meet a few of them. So when you register for the Tour this year, there will be a line to put a Veteran’s Charity that you would like a portion of the Registration Fee to go to. All nominations will be verified that it is an actual Non-Profit Charity and then put into the drawing for the End of Tour Party in October.
Registration will be open on January 10th and Passports will be sent out by March 10, 2018. We are still working on Sponsors but are anticipating 40 stops for this Tour.
Remember, even if you are a passenger, you can register and earn those extra points towards the Grand Prize of $1000 at the End of Tour Party.
I will keep you posted on our progress, BUT in the meantime, have a Happy New Year’s and don’t forget to make those Resolutions (mine will be broken in about a week).
Happy New Years everyone!!!
