50th Annual MGNOC Rally

June 27 @ 8:00 am - June 29 @ 5:00 pm

With great excitement, the National Rally will be hosted by West Coast MGNOC Moto Guzzi Clubs: Washington, Oregon, California. Location is at Grant County Fairgrounds, John Day, Oregon, while the fare will be great food, fantastic riding, and plenty of entertainment options. John Day was the site of both the 2010 and 2016 Nationals. Those of you who were there know of John Day’s magnificent scenery and you know it offers stellar riding on twisty, wide-open roads through river valleys rising into pine-timbered hills. Entertainment options to include: field games, bike show, beer/wine tent, evening fire pit, a movie, fantastic raffle prizes, 50/50 drawing, curated rides, tech/history seminars put on by names you will recognize, and a worthy closing ceremony Saturday night. Rally fee will be $100 per person if paid before June 1 and $125 per person from June 1 to day of the event. Rally fee includes three nights camping at the fairgrounds, supper Friday and Saturday, with more to be added as we move along. Please make checks payable to Gayle Guthrie, 13020 Occidental Avenue South, Burien, WA 98168. RV sites and early camping are also available through the fairgrounds for a reasonable fee. Call 541-575-1900 or see https://grantcountyoregon.net/217/fairgrounds. Rally fee will include all of the above, plus tent camping at the fairgrounds. There’s a selection of motels in the area offering a third option for those who don’t want to camp. Likely, RV sites and motels will book quickly; so, if you need one, best to book soon.
