8/20/2013 By: Carole McWilliams
Sky Ute Casino resort is giving away this 2013 Harley Davidson Electra Glide during this weekend's Four Corners Motorcycle Rally.
This is the weekend for motorcyclists of all sizes and shapes, and their rides, also all sizes and shapes, to fill the region with motorcycle rumbles.
Sky Ute Event Center is listed as Rally Central for the Four Corners Motorcycle Rally, with other activities at Sky Ute Casino, and in Durango, Farmington, Cortez, and Silverton.
Activities started yesterday at the Events Center. They continue through Sunday.
They include vendors, live music, beer booths, biker field events, biker bull riding, scenic rides, poker runs, custom bike show, two Harley giveaways (one at the casino), evening contests, and a lot of seeing and being seen.
Details are at www.FourCornersMotorcycleRally.com.
Spectators under age 18 will be ushered out by 7 p.m. each day. Age 18 and older can stay as late as they want.
A lot of bikers stay in Durango for the weekend. Roadrunner Transit will provide an evening shuttle to make it easier for those visitors to come to the event center for the evening activities and get them back to Durango at 2 a.m., so they don't have to ride their bikes back after a night of partying.
Highlights in Ignacio include:
Friday night. Psychedelic Mojo will play from 8 to 10 p.m. The casino will have a prime rib buffet from 6:30 to 7:45 p.m., followed by live music by the High Rollers and Diamondback TX.
Saturday. Mike Lorenzen Memorial Bike Show at noon with awards at 1 p.m., field event prelims, arm wrestling, tattoo contest, and biker bull riding prelims. Psychedelic Mojo will play from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Evening activities also will include an LED bike contest. The High Rollers will be among the bands playing outside at the casino starting at 2:30 p.m.
