2017 National Rally

I have started a thread in the rally section of Soviet Steeds to get the word out to the Ural crowd.

Secured our pull thru site. Inviting friends and family to come join the fun. Should be a blast!

Rally Registration form has now been activated.

Click this link to find rally registration form, view the rally schedule of events, etc.

Tell your friends and buddies where to register.

Any idea when we can register for the sidecar skills sessions?

Sidecar Skills registration will be onsite during the rally, first come-first serve. The number allowed in each session may be restricted depending on weather and the size of area we are allowed to use.

Safety first.

Just a note to let you guys know if you click on the link at the bottom to print the registration form you are getting my form from last year.

Did you know that you could sign up for one day or one week of classes in glassblowing this summer? You can at the Corning Museum of Glass near the site of the 2017 USCA Rally, July 27 - 30, Corning, NY

For details go to:

Don't forget to sign up for the National Rally here:

See you in Corning.

Just registered for the Rally and with Ferenbaugh campground. Making a 2 to 3 week trip out of it. Starting in NC hitting OH, Canada, NY, and eastern Pa. This is our first National Rally. Really looking forward to it. See you all there!

I was about to inform everyone that Ferenbaugh Campground is open for business but Chuck has already found that out. Get your camping spot nailed down for the rally. For those not camping we have a block of rooms at The America's Best Value Inn. See details below.

Americas Best Value Inn
196 S Hamilton St
Painted Post, NY 14870
(607) 962-2456

The negotiated rate is $84/night plus tax. If you have trouble getting the rate or with availability ask to talk with Marcy. [But you shouldn't need to]

Larry and I walked the rally site today, everything is coming together for a great gathering of sidecarists. Everyone we met there seems excited to host our event. The campgrounds has even lined up a DJ for Saturday night with a 1980's theme dress up contest. So bring your bell-bottoms, big hair and bogey all night long.

There are both open and shaded spots for trailers and RV's with hook ups, a tent camping area with trees, playgrounds and miniature golf, a swimming pool plus a catch and release fishing pond. Being out in the country, the grounds is quiet with cool fresh air.

The school parking lot in town is all ours for two days for the skills refresher sessions. Sign up will be on site at the rally for a limited number in each two hour session.

Of course, we had to check out the quality of the ice cream available in Corning for you guys, (boy, the sacrifices one has to make to please the sidecar community), all I can say is, it tasted as good licked off my fingers as it did in the cone. They even have a non-dairy ice cream if you want.

For the rides, both paved and gravel roads have been identified for those wanting to explore. Maps will be available.

There are so many things to do and see in the Corning area, you could spend a full week here and still not see everything. Besides the huge Corning Glass museum, there is the Curtis Aircraft museum and the Rockwell western art museum. Main street in downtown is lined for blocks with small shops, crafts, collectables, antiques, craft beer, food cafes, etc, etc, etc.

Watch here for more rally details as they become available.
