All makes and models are welcome and you will find a mash of motorcycles competing for space alongside dealers and vendors of all things motorcycling. The ride-in motorcycle show and competition on Saturday includes entrants from all over the country in competitive award classes showcasing the greatest in classic style, fresh customization and all that is unusual and incredible. Meanwhile, the grounds are packed with local and national vendors, live music, food, refreshments, a microbrew tasting, arm wrestling tournament, touring of the 4-mile road course, stunt shows, and of course a slow speed evening sunset cruise of the road course. Friday, Saturday and Sunday the on-track activities feature vintage racing motorcycles from the 1920s to the early 70s and vintage superbikes from the 70s and 80s from AHRMA.

The 2018 VJMC National Rally will take place at Spring Mill State Park in Mitchell, Indiana. This will be the Club’s fourth visit to what is considered to be the most relaxing venue we use for a major event. Each year local members have led us on ride routes that are scenic with unique points of interest. The 2018 Rally will be no different. Several of the rides will take us along routes not used at our Rally before.

There is a three night minimum for all reservations at the Spring Mill Inn. This is necessary to ensure VJMC’s exclusive use of the Inn and associated parking garage, meeting rooms and to allow maximum flexibility for evening social events and activities. The Inn has 70 rooms available for this event. Local hotels are available to handle the over flow. We expect more than 175 guests or more for 2018. You will need to register for the Rally before booking your room. This year we have a dedicated person to assist with room reservations. Specific details are available on the VJMC Calendar – National Rally event.

Don’t wait to register for the Rally and then book your room.

We will be unable to provide any refunds after May 21, 2018 due to VJMC required financial commitments to vendors. Also we cannot guarantee tee shirts for those who register after May 1, 2017.

A link to that registration will be available on this calendar posting shortly.

Should you prefer a lodging other than the Caberfae Ski Lodge you can choose from a variety of hotel options In Cadillac.

NOTE:
