The Lone Star Rally In Galveston, Texas Is Still On
The Galveston,Texas area is still in the early stages of recovery from Hurricane Ike. But it will take more than a storm to stop Texas bikers from having a rally.
Promoter Ron Limbock recently sent Cycle Trader a message concerning the upcoming Lone Star Rally, being held in Galveston on October 30th to November 2nd.
Despite conflicting reports on television and in the newspapers (who don't check with the proper sources prior to airing or printing) the Lone Star Rally wil be presented as planned in Galveston on Oct 30th thru Nov. 2. Every planned activity will happen except the deep sea fishing trip. This very difficult decision was made after many meetings with Galveston Officials and representative citizens.
I am proud to report that while in Galveston we have seen many amazing teams of local, State and Federal Governments actually working together. There is an army of workers from all over America in Galveston cleaning up and they are making remarkable progress. These Officials had a plan for a storm like this and it is in effect. We will see even more progress in the coming weeks. Now that the locals are back we will begin seeing remarkable progress as the business community comes back up.
The Lone Star Rally will now be the "Rally to Rebuild"! Our goal is and help serve our community. We call on the entire biker community to come to Galveston and participate in the programs now listed on our web-site www.lonestarrally.com. It has never been more important! It is our opportunity to help give back to the citizens who have happily welcomed us for seven years. They need us! Let's jumpstart their economy!
Well, nobody said it was going to easy being a biker! Stay with friends, double up in rooms, rent a condo, stay in Houston and ride down for the day. Heck, its not that far! Keep checking our web-site. We are adding lodging opportunities daily. Ride down for the day if necessary but please come! Because of gas prices and lower than usual attendance at other rallies, our vendors have had a tough year and no community has had it tougher than Galveston. Help us show the world that Galveston is just down, not out!
Please be patient with your lodging. Many are just getting utilities back and they are all trying hard to be ready to serve you. Just give them a week and you'll be able to reach most of them. Many of you will experience unwanted changes in your lodging and might be further away then you wanted. Some might not find lodging at all! Heck, its not that far! Keep checking our web-site. We are adding lodging opportunities daily.
