Mississippi Sidecar Rally April 2d 2016
« on: February 03, 2016, 09:11:12 am »
This is a copy paste post from the United Sidecar Association about a April 2d2016 sidecar rally in Biloxi, Mississippi.  Anyone with Royal Enfield sidecars in that area???


First -

The MS event/rally/show is shaping up to be a good one (I think). Kilometera - as far as I know, this is the first USCA event in MS. One sidecarist in MS regrets it being only a one day event. Hey guys, this is my first ever try at organizing something like this and I'm afraid I'll only have a handful of people show up. Except for the help being offered by the good folks at MS Coast Harley, this is a one man show. Might be best if I copied what I said on the in service thread here:

""Saturday I met with the operators of Mississippi Coast Harley Davidson. (coastharley.com)

They were very helpful and agreed to let us hold our event at their location. They regularly put on shows and special events. The owner's brother is a computer tech and is willing to help with getting the word out. They have put us on their calendar and added a link to sidecar.com on their web page. Hope this is okay with you all.

The event will take place on Saturday, April 2 starting at 9:00 AM and ending at 5:00 PM. Proposed events include:

Doughnut eating contest in the morning. He/she who consumes the most in a set period of time will receive the "Big O" award. Hope to have Krispie Kream donate doughnuts. Trophy provided.

People's choice award for best rig at show. All attendees get to vote. Trophies for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd.

Hope to do a "road kill round up". They have the space, cones, etc. but have to check with their insurance company. Trophy provided.

People's choice for best looking monkey. Trophy provided.

Numerous raffles. Will sell tickets for each. Already have two dealers who are donating prizes. Some good stuff, like helmets, etc.
Will do my best to contact every motorcycle dealer in the southern part of the state.
Proceeds from raffles go to support the Shriners' Children's Hospital. Hope to have Joppa Motor Corps (Shriner motorcycle group) on site. I am a member.

Had hoped to do a poker run but don't think there will be sufficient time in one day with the other events. They like to do "Slowest ride" but that doesn't mean much with sidecars (?). Am looking for ideas for other possible events. Please give me some input.

I will contact every sidecar driver I know in the state with personal invite. There are only nine I know of. Admission will be free but to be in competition the sidecar team will pay $10 entry fee. (I have to pay for the trophies somehow.)

The Harley folks will have their regular food venders on site and there will be music provided throughout. I would like to do more but have no idea what to expect for a turnout. Considered T-shirts but I don't want to get stuck with a case of them. Wife ain't too happy about some of this.

Have invited Mobile Bay Vintage Motorcycle Club (mbvmc.org) to attend and advertise. I'm a member there also.

Will keep you all posted as things develop. Can you put this out through our website? ""

People are asking for a flyer and I have to get one designed and published PDQ. So I might keep this short for now. But please keep the ideas coming.

For those of you who might be interested, this is shaping up to be a good event.  We have the date, time, place, etc. set.  We also have commitments from several motorcycle dealers and related businesses for merchandise for the raffles.  I'm working on more and hope to contact every related dealer in South MS.  Proceeds from the raffles will go to support the Shriners Hospitals for Children.  I have received inquiries from two other states so things might be bigger than expected.  If I don't have a breakdown and/or the wife doesn't get fed up and throw me out, this could be fun.....  :P
