2nd Annual Lost Shores Thunder Rally
July 27th Update… Sorry folks, with heavy hearts, we are cancelling the 2020 Lost Shores Thunder Rally. We were willing but barriers kept emerging and we no longer felt we could deliver a high quality and safe experience. Best to lay low and wait for better times ahead.
We want to say thank you for the incredible level of support this event has received throughout both our community and social media. We’re very excited about the future prospects for this event. Much of this year’s efforts to grow and improve the event will make next year’s job just a little easier. We hope to see many of you next year at the 2021 Lost Shores Thunder Rally to be held Sept 10-12 at Canso’s Stanfest grounds.
In the meantime, feel free to come ride our hidden paradise. You will find the poker run route map at https://lostshoresthunderrally.ca/map/ . Traffic is lighter than ever, several roads have been rebuilt just since last year and it makes for a great daytrip around our hidden paradise.
We’re excited about our future. The event seems to be evolving to a music festival for motorcycles. Ideas are percolating to build on the music theme and include more of the community. We’ll also welcome motorcycle related vendors at an attractively low cost since they add to the entertainment factor and we have tons of space available. Poker Run will once again finish at Canso’s Whitman Wharf with a brief tribute to fallen riders. We’ll add biker field games late Saturday afternoon before we eat. 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 be 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.
Thank you to Canso Area Development Association for sponsorship, to Stanfest for an amazing event site and music expertise, Canso Lions Club for food, our financial sponsors, Lost Shores Gallery for event management, Nova Scotia Dept of Transportation for beautiful windy oceanfront routes and of course the many locals for music, volunteers and enthusiastic support.
