The rallye is moving this year to Diamond Don’s campground 1 mile north of Jefferson on Highway 49. This is a beautiful campground located in the woods of East Texas. It is only 1 mile from Jefferson with all its antique shops, stores, and restaurants. The campground sits on 100 acres and has 50 RV hook ups along with a dump station. There are clean restrooms and free Wi-Fi. The center of the campground has a huge covered pavilion with a stage, sound system, lighting, and a bar with a fridge. The pavilion will be operating hub of the rallye where we will have the awards ceremony and dinner Saturday night. It has seating for 200 people. There are sprinklers throughout the campground which makes it a nice grassy location with no dust. There is a campground PA system as well. A river runs along the western edge of the campground which is also the route for Don’s vintage train that can be boarded in downtown Jefferson. This location has a large central open area that is perfect for our new field events being held on Friday and for our traditional bike show and rolling concours to be held on Saturday. As an added attraction there is a fenced in alligator pit! We are very excited to be able to move our successful rallye to this new location that will enable us to grow and add more events. Please pass this along to everyone you know and invite them to the rallye. Feel free to contact me for more information.

Billed as Europe's largest vintage vehicle market and technical show, the first one was in 1975. Due to the popularity of the event, there are two Veterama events - now April and October. These events have saved countless vintage and antique vehicles from being lost; the availability of parts and knowledge breathes new life into many historical vehicles.
Hours are 8:30a-6:00p on Saturday and 8:30a-4:00p on Sunday. Tickets start at 12 euros per day with reduced rates for multiple days. Parking is available. Insider tickets can be purchased to allow access on Friday from 12:00p-8:00p.

The Harvest Classic is a motorcycle rally held each fall in Luckenbach, Texas. The 2016 HC will be held on October 21&22. We are wacky for vintage and European motorcycles. We also like trials bikes, concourse-quality antiques, home-built specials, vintage racers, unreliable daily riders, small-bore tiddlers, Italian Beasts, scooters, British bikes, kitted-out mopeds, cafe racers, and old Japanese jewelry. Whether you are a grizzled old gearhead or have recently drunk the kool-aid, we invite you to ride out to Luckenbach and join us for a weekend of celebrating these old bikes!
In 2016, Join the merry team of motorheads who come from all around to enter their European, Vintage, and Competition bikes in the bike show, participate in or watch the vintage trials, eat home-cooked barbecue, win swag (or a bike) in the insanely good raffle, go big for the kids in the live auction, watch a big-screen outdoor movie, listen to great music, pick up some choice bits at the swap meet, camp under the stars, immerse ourselves in moto-culture, and rub elbows with kindred spirits. Our rally attendees, sponsors, and all-volunteer staff throw down hard to raise a ton of money for the Candlelighters Childhood Cancer program of Any Baby Can, which really makes a difference in the lives of families who are living with/ battling childhood cancer.

The Texas Children’s Toy Run brings motorcyclists together for a very worthy purpose: the joy of a child receiving a gift at Christmas. Motorcyclists donate a new unwrapped toy to participate in the ride. The toys are donated to Texas Children’s Hospital for distribution to children who will be spending Christmas in the hospital.
For a child facing illness and the uncertainty of hospitalization, toys are not just toys, they are tools. They help with the developmental, emotional and educational needs of the patients. Play also provides distraction and promotes a sense of fun in spite of challenging circumstances.
The event is to be held on Saturday, December 3, 2016. The toy run will begin at the Entergy Texas Conroe Service Center located at 2802 North Frazier.
We are currently seeking sponsorships and raffle or silent auction items for this event. Toys collected will be delivered to Volunteer Services at Texas Children’s Hospital on Friday December 9, 2016.
To respond to this opportunity, sponsorship checks can be made payable to Texas Children’s Toy Run and mail to Entergy Texas, Attention Keith Rodgers, 9425 Pinecroft, The Woodlands, TX. 77380 on or before October 17, 2016. Should you have any questions or need any additional information, please contact Keith Rodgers at 281-362-4061.
