The 13th Annual Wild in the Weeds Motorcycle Party, sponsored by High Country Chapter (HCC) ABATE of Arizona, is shaping up to be the best on to-date. Like every year, it will be held the first weekend in May (this year that is May 5, 6 & 7).
Last year, the Old Bastards MC of Payson was first on the scene arriving a whole day early on Thursday to the prime spot in the parking lot for their RV. They also proceeded to kick everyoneâ€™s butt in the bike and people games taking away 8 of the 12 trophies. We have heard on the grapevine that there will be a significant challenge to that record this year so the games may be even more fun and exciting than ever!
Besides the same popular bike and people games on Saturday that were such a hit last year, HCC will once again be offering a 50/50 raffle, a $500 raffle, a bigger and better Silent Auction and of course numerous raffle prizes. Plus, MotorcycleSafari.com will start passing the hat for the Wet T-Shirt Contest by dropping in a cool $100 to start. Last yearâ€™s winner pocket $215 cash for sharing their â€¦ ummâ€¦ ample assets in what was a pretty classy contest!
There will be a Live Band Friday night and Plum Krazy will be wowing the crowd on Saturday night.
Also on Saturday, MotorcycleSafari.com will again be sponsoring a Photo Booth where everyone attending can get free photo postcards of themselves and their friends, dressed in costumesÂ if they chose, as souvenirs of the event.
Saturdayâ€™s master of ceremonies will once again be DJ Royce Kincanon since he did such a fantastic job keeping the tunes rolling and the crowd enthused as they watched the people and bike games last year.
This yearâ€™s Wild in the Weeds will have even more vendors, including Discount Biker Supply, and you will even be able to get custom patches made to order, or your own patches sewn on, by B & B Graphics. There are a few vendor spots available so call CC Rider at 928-476-1955 if you want to get in on the action. These are the lowest cost vendor spots in the nation!
There will be a breakfast buffet on Saturday morning and the whole affair will end with a 2.5 hour ride to Show Low on Sunday morning to remember the 10th Year Anniversary of the passing of an Arizona legend, Waldo Stuart.
High Country hopes everyone will set aside the first weekend in May, ever year, for Wild in the Weeds!
