To save time, please make sure we have the name of your guests 30 days in advance so we can have them printed with their names and they can be picked up by them at Will Call. Otherwise, any un-named persons on your guest list will be given GUEST passes and will be in your envelope when you check-in. Send all attendee names and email addresses (if available) to: In addition to saving time at check-in, every attendee that we have names and email addresses will be added as a member and receive the Trailblazers e-newsletter for one year.

Bike show entrants can check-in beginning at 10 a.m., Gates open at Noon and Judging begins at 2 p.m. Space will be limited, so get there early if you are bringing a motorcycle to show.
