I hate to spoil your illusion, but this all began as a rally to have one last get-together before winter. It was not originally intended as a fund raiser for MDA. That came later when the rally started growing. Yes they are here for the party. Other-wise they could just send a check to MDA and save the trip. A rally is an opportunity to get together with your friends and have a good time. The fact that they are helping to raise money for charity is something that they do because they want to help. There are other Rallies and get togethers by car clubs and other common interest groups,that do not raise money for anything other than them-selves. For instance the Memorial Day Car show!! Lets give credit where it is due.It is, unfortunately VERY true that a huge majority of the riders for this event are here for the party only & not to give to MDA (remember that is the purpose?!)
Wow there young lady, you sure have a jaded opinion about us bikers. Sorry to hear that! First of all, most, if not ALL of us contribute in some way to MDA. Through our HOG memberships, through raffles at Sara Park, food purchases from vendors who have to pay a portion to MDA, pins, t-shirts, etc.Originally posted by Sunnydaygirl:
All don't contribute to the fund raiser, that is the sad part of it all.Many come to have fun and don't pay any $$$ towards the MDA.I give to many fundraisers and if I was attending one and spending my time being there I would surely donate money for the cause.That is supposed to be why they are attending.Feel sorry for the hunters on opening weekend of bowhunting.They are not considered on what day/weekend is being selected for the ride.How to hunt with motorcyles roaring up and down the highway when you are trying to hunt in the woods.Waiting for this time of year and opening day/weekend.It is opening for bear and deer hunting bow season.Also, the hotels are full so many have no place to stay for their hunt if they don't have a cabin or camping option.Camping is probably out of the question too.Opening day for most events is a big deal, but sure can't be with the Harleys here..for opening hunting.
