    This is a reincarnation on the old Trail of Tears that hasn't been held for many years.

    The Shawnee Area Riders Association, Chartered Club 618, is reviving this Rally. So it is an old/brand new (first time) Rally which will be a low key camping Rally.

    I will be there and expect everyone who attends to have a good time.

    Grass Roots BMW will be having events at their dealership that weekend which will be fun.

    Hope to see you there!
    I used to post here, but now I don't.

    Well I did go last year.It was a very nice Rally next to the river.During the day kick back and watch the barges going up and down river.At night wear ear plugs,there is a to lane train track with train caring coal to the power plant all night,and barges with their search lights changing night to day.But even with all that,the camp fires right next to the river and the ride on Sat. to the BMW dealership open house (only a 15 min.ride and great food)was well worth it.
    I'm going again this year.

    What happened to the Jugs and Shaft Club? I used to go to that rally years ago. One year they had a hard rain and half the bikes were on their side on the ground, at the Castor River campground. Funny what you remember.
