Recommended Posts

You've heard about. You may have even been there once or twice or 7 times. But...the 2013 Southeast Victory Rally is set to be bigger and better than any previous year and will be difficult to top in the future!


There will be recommended ride sheets and GPS files available. There will be a poker run (organized and coordinated by the Southern Comfort Victory Riders). There will be a bike show, with cruiser, bagger, touring, and custom classes. There will be swag from our sponsors and vendors and supporters. There will be food and drinks and music and maybe just a little bit of mayhem.


As always, we continue our attempt to make theis event bigger and better every year. 2013 is no different! Along with all of the above standard fare, we also have the Thursday Night Kick-off Party, the Friday Night Witchdoctor's Luau, and Saturday's Freedom Night at the Festhalle.


This year's kick-off party will be the Southeast Victory Rally/USRiderNews Party in the Park! We've joined forces with the fine folks at USRiderNews for a combined Thursday night blowout with Food, music, libations, and more! It is shaping up to be a great start to the weekend!


New for this year is the Witchdoctor's Luau, sponsored (obviously) by Witchdoctor's Billet Specialties! Food, music and giveaways are on the schedule. Grass skirts and flower shirts are optional (but welcome)!


Freedom Night at the Festhalle, sponsored by Freedom Powersports, is our culminating event of the weekend. Catering is once again being taken care of by North GA BBQ, so there will be plenty of that wonderful BBQ to feast upon. Our raffles and auctions will follow, along with special giveaways and announcements.


For additional information, or to preregister for the event, be sure to check out http://www.victoryrally.com and https://www.facebook.com/#!/VictoryRally . We look forward to seeing everyone in 49 days!!!

The host hotel generally books up on Sunday before the previous year's event closes. Sometimes, people will cancel and rooms will open up. This usually happens in May, about 2 weeks before the event. If we have any rooms open up, I'll post them to let everyone know.


If you'd like to stay close, but can't get a room at the host, put in a call to Sylvia at USRiderNews, 478-494-7992. She is handling our overflow and has rooms available at the Super8 and the Best Western.

The popular work shirts will be available again this year. This image will be embroidered on the back of a charcoal grey Dickies Short Sleeve Work Shirt. These will be limited run items and will only be available through PREORDER. Please note, we are also unable to ship these, so they must be picked at on site during the rally. We are working on getting costs down, so stay tuned for pricing and ordering info!

Just a few important tidbits of information...


- As we attempt to maintain this as a family-friendly event, we ask that attendees refrain from wearing colors while at the rally. To my knowledge, this hasn't been an issue, but we'd like to minimize any/possible issues as we continue to build this event.


- The hotel staff has asked that we refrain from bringing motorcycles inside the hotel. I'm sure Drew would appreciate it, as well.


- Parking will continue to be an issue. We are looking into some options, but for the time being, last year's rules will apply. They follow...






As those of you who have attended in the past may have already noticed, parking at the host hotel is a problem area. We believe it is time to take steps to alleviate some of the issues, with availability and safety in mind. To that end, the following changes continue for this year's event. Please plan accordingly...


-With the exception of the small area at the end of the Country Inn & Suites where the dumpster is, the hotel parking lot will be cordoned off for MOTORCYCLES ONLY.


-Six parking spaces in that small area will be reserved for hotel staff. The staff is there for us, it's the least we can do for them. Please respect the reserved parking signs.


-For those caging or trailering to the event, there is a parking lot across the street from the city park. However, space is limited. You can also park your vehicles/trailers in the city lot at the end of Edelweiss Strauss, past the festhalle. NOTE: THERE IS A FEE FOR PARKING IN THE CITY LOT.


-For those that have parked at the Chinese restaurant in the past...as far as I know, that restaurant is still open for business, so you won't be able to park there.


-Pop-up tents/pavilions can be a welcome escape from the sun and inclement weather and we welcome them at the rally. However, as we work toward providing as much parking availability to accommodate everyone, we are asking that pop-ups be put up on the grassy/sidewalk areas next to the hotel and not in parking spaces, unless they are intended to be used for covered parking.


I understand this may be an inconvenience for some, but we felt it's necessary to provide the best possible overall experience for everyone attending. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
