TrailBlazers - We are a social organization of pioneer motorcycling enthusiasts. Meeting annually since 1940.


No new details to report about the 76th annual Trailblazers banquet, which has been rescheduled for November 7, 2020 at the Carson Center.

I have been in contact with the Carson Center and they are monitoring developments relating to public events and gatherings. With the current distancing regulations, we could not hold a banquet right now for the 800 attendees who are holding tickets, but we are also five months away. Much can change as we get into the summer months and see what the health trends are as the public returns to the malls, beaches and restaurants.

If we are not able to have our event in November, we will likely reschedule again to our original banquet date, which for 2021 would be April 3rd , but that is all tentative. Stay tuned.

Ticket holder options:
At the time we rescheduled the banquet date, we were sold out. All ticket holders who had originally paid by check, or who have since repurchased their tickets with their credit cards, your seats are all on hold just where they were originally and will remain so until the banquet.

If you wish to cancel your tickets, you can request a refund up to 30 days prior to the event by emailing me at: Those cancelling their tickets will then need to start over if/when any tickets become available at a later date. If you had tickets refunded by EventBrite, but have chosen not to repurchase them at this time, then you will also need to start over if/when any tickets become available at a later date.

If you do not have tickets, but wish to attend, please contact me at: and we’ll add you to the waiting list. Until we know what limitations we might have, we don’t know if there will be any more seats available. Thanks for your understanding. We are committed to keeping our long and great tradition going, but obviously health comes first. Be well.
