2020 Southeast Rally Calendar

Sorry.........added Sequatchie Valley Days to March!

Welcome to 2020, everyone! The Southeast is a wonderful place to get together with friends to ride and just hang out by the campfire. Most of the locations are Motorcycle Campgrounds, but some are private land of our friends. Thanks for providing a place, guys! For those rides at the campgrounds, don't forget to make reservations early if you need cabins, etc. Everyone just pays the campgrounds on an individual basis.

Hope everyone has a great year of riding! The list of rides sits at 5 in the spring and 4 in the fall. Hope the dates work out for your personal calendar. Most are the same weekend of the month they were last year, but take notice that there are a couple of changes:

1. Sequatchie Valley Days is moved earlier to late March and cooler tempts. Prentice Cooper opens the week prior ...and also before the Turkey hunts.

2. Blue Ridge Run is moved earlier to the last weekend of May, for possible cooler temps. The following week is designated as a backup in case of bad weather the previous week.

3. Smokey Mtn 500 is pushed later by a couple of weeks to possibly have cooler temps in the first weekend of October. The following week is designated as a backup in case of bad weather the previous week.

Also, I took out the 'Host' heading of each rally. Of course, there will be the usual suspects that will show up regularly and lead rides, but in the occasion they don't (ex - Thursday Early Birds), just get up a band of riders and go blaze a route! We will start a Ride Thread about 3 weeks before each rally.
