The rally was held at the Radisson Opryland with registration in the main facility
and the rally site activities in a large paved lot behind the Fiddler's Inn.

There was a ride-in bike show, CA Hell Rider's Wall of Death, and Bubba Blackwell's stunt riding.

And Bubba did his best to please the crowd with burn-outs, wheelies on the seat
and handlebars, and, of course, a "thrilling" jump over 10 tractors.

The rally also had the usual field events and a special event called 'Pigs vs Hogs' challenge that was a
skills course riding event. All of the riders did a great job with a close victory for the Hogs.

All of the surrounding dealerships participated in the event with various special "offerings" during the
course of the rally. Here is Boswell's H-D and C & S H-D in Nashville, and Appleton's H-D in Clarksville.

We also visited Murfreesboro H-D and Cool Springs H-D during the Dealer's
Poker Run. Every Dealership appeared to be well visited during our tour!

Mary and I carried the ET HOG Chapter flag in the Saturday morning parade. A special tribute to
veterans was held at the rally site and, alas, the closing ceremonies of another great rally.

On Saturday we also ran into other members of our Chapter at the rally. The ET HOG Chapter
was represented by at least eight current members (and a few x-members as well).
Once again the Nashville HOG volunteers have planned and executed a very good state rally. Over
3500 HOG members joined in the fun at a great rally site with plenty to see and plenty to do.
