The tickets purchased with the code must be used Sept. 1- Sept 30 2010.

    Also, a local blues band the Alligators have been booked for Saturday Night.

    Sorry for the bump, however I just wanted to remind everyone that if you do not have weekend plans yet then come to Morganton NC for the first Knobbie Rally. See Knobbie.org for more details. The add is a little misleading. It states that the first preregistered get free T- shirt. Should read everyone who registers gets T-Shirt. The weather is still going to be hot, however, cool mountains are only a few minutes away from the rally site. The City of Morganton and the Knobbies are looking forward to having you come to the first rally and hopefully this will be an annual event. Just a reminder that any profits the club make is shared with the South Mountains Childrens Home.

    Just got back home (50 miles in a thunderstorm) safely. You guys had better get ready for a larger crowd next year. This is going to be a premier rally "once word of mouth" gets around. Great people, GREAT riding and GREAT FACILITY!!!!! Tell the city of Morganton "Thank you" and we shall see you next year!!!!:clap

    <!--StartFragment -->Thinking about riding up to the rally tomorrow.. Sat.... are the $10 day passes available at the gate??? Anyone know?

    BTW.. I called Gene's # on the Knobbie website and didn't get him, but .. (and this is weird)... after I left a phone message for him, I started getting HIS messages on my phone... If anyone knows him they should warn him of this anomoly.

    Hope to see some of you there..

    the second annual Knobbies Rally was a few weeks ago. Its a small rally at a great venue, with some of the nicest folks. I have been the past two years, and would highly recomend it.
