Stay at Home/Lockdown here... wondering like everyone else how long we're in for, when will it be over, and will they cancel this years event because we still won't be able to travel, or gather in groups of more than 20. I'm optimistic, cause I've been looking forward to seeing my friends again. Stay safe everyone...

If we are still in this situation 2 1/2 months from now I think we will have bigger issues than the event being canceled. I believe everything will be ok and I in the process of making trophies again this year. Here's a little tease, they are not finished

Sadly Too Broke For Sturgis is being canceled this year. Just received this email from ABATE of AZ...

PRESS RELEASE From ABATE of Arizona

www.abateofaz.org 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE 

The COVID-19 Pandemic Shuts Down Arizona’s Premier Motorcycle Event 

TBFS 2020 Attendees – After deep consideration, A.B.A.T.E. of Arizona (ABATE) has made the
difficult decision to cancel the 29th Annual Too Broke For Sturgis (TBFS) event scheduled for June
11-14, 2020 at Mormon Lake, AZ. Due to the uncertainties and extent of the COVID-19 pandemic,
ABATE can no longer justify inviting all you to TBFS 2020. 

ABATE’s flagship fundraiser, TBFS, is officially cancelled for 2020 out of an abundance of
caution and for the health and safety of the attendees, our musicians, vendors, volunteers,
staff, sponsors and the surrounding community of Mormon Lake.

Although our event takes place outside the current CDC’s eight-week ban, we made the difficult
decision to cancel this year’s event as there is no timeline as to when restrictions and quarantines
might realistically end. We respect the CDC’s guidelines which, in all probability, may be extended
for an unknown length of time. Further, ABATE acknowledges that this virus has and will continue to
impact our communities’ health and financial wellbeing. Take care of each other! 

I know this comes as a disappointment to ALL OF YOU, especially to the loyal bikers that have
supported Too Broke for Sturgis since 1991. We thank all of you! ABATE looks forward to
resuming Arizona’s Premier Motorcycle event next year!

Our hearts go out to anyone directly or indirectly impacted by the COVID-19 virus. To those who are
sick, we extend to you our heartfelt wishes for a full recovery.

Please support A.B.A.T.E. of Arizona or your state MRO (Motorcycle Rights Organization) in any
way you can. We will get through this together where we can continue to fight for the rights of ALL
BIKES, ALL RIDERS.

Thank you for your continued support of ABATE. Please join us for TBFS 2021 where we can
celebrate getting through this pandemic stronger than ever!

I made 7 trophies and they're done with the 2020 TBFS logo hydro dip on them. The first time I put a date on them- oh crap. I was notified about a week ago it was going to be canceled but it wasn't official so I didn't post

That is unfortunate, but you now have a year to 'get creative' and modify them for next year.   ;)  I have faith in your skills.   £~¥

We can still do our own. The lodge will have live entertainment Friday and Saturday nights. We can camp or stay in a cabin, there will plenty available.
The picture below is a trophy I made special this year for the weenie bit, you will either love it or hate it. FYI I was asked to make it

Never could cancel my Res. for Route 66 Casino so I pushed 1 for "Security" Talked to a guy for quite sometime after he told me he thought the Res would be canceled automatically.  Every time I gave him an opening to hang up he'd ignore it and pick up the conversation.  Told me 700 people work there and they are getting furlough pay.  He thinks they will open sometime around July 4th.  I'd have finished my "Breakfast Special" and be loading Ruby now, heading to Gallop at a gallop.  I was supposed to meet some friends I never met and some I have.  Never did like being told what to do.  Bullshit I say.
It was then I knew I'd had enough, Burned my credit card for fuel.   Headed out to where the pavement  turns to sand.  With a one-way ticket to the land of truth  And my suitcase in my hand. How I lost my friends I still don't understand.

  @Webbtron,

  Yesterday morning (06/10/20) we would have been boots up at 5:30-6:00am for the ride/drive to Kingman from Nevada County, CA., some 670 miles away from Bourbon Lodge Garage, Facebook

  It was our plan to wake up in Kingman AZ. about an hour ago, (7:00am PST) and start our day at Cracker Barrel.  We were going to have my sister in tow for this weekend and introduce her to some old friends of hers she had never met.  After a nice breakfast, a leisurely putt to Mormon Lake.  I sure do like that ride between Kingman and Mormon Lake.

  After the Rally it was my intention to add a little mileage with Webbtron, dropping him off near Colorado before going home with a little stop in Burlington, VT. and visiting my Sister, (who had returned home by then) in Warren County, VA.  I was going to call it, "Well Beyond 'Too Broke', part II".  Maybe next year.

I concur, Bullshit!

Cheers,
Ferrous
