CARMEL, CA – April 19, 2016 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – The countdown begins for the 8th Annual The Quail Motorcycle Gathering, set for Saturday, May 14, 2016 at the Quail Lodge & Golf Club. With just one month to go until the festivities kick off, sponsors, motorcycle entrants and attendees alike are anxious with anticipation for another unforgettable event.
The Quail Motorcycle Gathering
In addition to the more than 300 incredible motorcycles displayed on the lawn, attendees will be treated to a host of lifestyle vendors, live entertainment, a signature beverage pavilion, dedicated kids area and more. Perhaps the most unique aspect of the event is the diversity of the crowd, with people coming together from all walks of life to share in their common passion for motorcycles.
Along with the many motorcycles on the event field, The Quail Motorcycle Gathering has partnered with the Monterey Youth Museum to help raise money for this wonderful organization. A silent auction will be held with items donated by sponsors, and proceeds will go to the MY Museum.
Special guest Don Emde will be in attendance presenting his new book, Finding Cannon Ball’s Trail. The book will be available for purchase at the event and Emde will be on hand to sign copies and discuss the project. This year’s Legend of the Sport, Reg Pridmore, will also be signing his book Smooth Riding the Pridmore Way along with co-author Geoff Drake.
Entry includes a gourmet southwestern barbecue lunch as well as afternoon ice cream on the lawn. Parking and gear valet service will be available for those riding a motorcycle to the event. Tickets are on sale now at www.quaillodgetickets.com.
