2nd Annual Lost Shores Thunder Rally
Thanks to the enthusiastic response from last year’s inaugural event, we’re back for a second year!
Pause…. May 13th update. Like everyone and everything else, we’re on pause for a few more weeks until we better understand the corona virus situation. For now, we’ll hold off on taking registrations until we know its okay to proceed. September is 4 months away, there is still a reasonable possibility that everything will proceed to plan. If it still doesn’t look good August 1st, then we will cancel the event and return September 10-12, 2021. Stay safe, everyone.
The event seems to be evolving to a music festival for motorcycles. Guests raved about the live music both evenings last year. Ideas are percolating to build on the music theme and include more of the community. We’ll also welcome motorcycle related (only) vendors at an attractively low cost since they add to the entertainment factor and we have tons of space available. We’ve adjusted the Poker Run schedule to add in some biker games late Saturday afternoon. Once again we are weaving in a modest fundraising initiative to support local minor hockey and figure skating at the on site Canso Arena. Registration options will the same $99 weekend pass including camping, food, poker run, evening music and bonfires and the $65 Saturday pass including poker run, food and music.
The highlight once again is the Saturday Poker Run. We’ll finish once again at Canso’s Whitman Wharf with a brief tribute to fallen riders. Expect a Thunder Salute followed by a moment of silence as we remember those we lost.
Thank you to Canso Area Development Association for sponsorship, to Stanfest for an amazing event site and music expertise, Nova Scotia Dept of Transportation for beautiful windy oceanfront routes and of course the locals for music, volunteers and enthusiastic support.
We’ll have more smaller improvements to explain as we firm up the details.
Hope to see you in September.
