Back after a couple of years...|
I remember going to the very first Hawg Valley rally 7-8 years ago and have been back a couple of times over the years.
Things are a little better organized now, with a real DJ, tons of Saturday afternoon field events (biker rodeo games), a bike show and of course their famous motorcycle dirt drags.
I heard they had a hell of a party this spring, too bad the weather was kind of rainy this weekend. They still had a nice little crowd, but the place is pretty big and could have easily handled twice as many folks.
The party itself was pretty good, but they have this old barn up on the hill and it kind of breaks up the festivities. You'd be watching the band play down at the bottom of the hill to a crowd of 20 people... then wet t shirt time would come around and the stage would pack out.
The turnout wasn't too bad, the party wasn't too bad, the DJ was good and the bands were pretty good. I guess pretty good... pretty well sums it up.
Bob rates this party an ok 6/10 score
