Bike Show
Bike Show Move-in: Banquet attendees with motorcycles to display should be there from Noon to 2:00. No pre-registration. First come, first served until the area is full. You must have a ticket for the banquet to display or view the bike show. We do have limited security on-site, but everyone is encouraged to bring your own locks and display info, also drip pans required. The Tom Cates Memorial Bike Show presented by Hagerty opens at 3:00 and runs until 6:00. There will be judging and three winning machines will be brought into the hall for the trophy presentation during the banquet program.

Check-in / Ticket Will Call
Your banquet tickets will be available in your name at Will Call. If you had an un-named person on your table list, those will be given GUEST passes and will be in your envelope. You are probably familiar with our Pit Passes that everyone needs to wear.
