Blackhawk Chapter ABATE of IL presents the annual Blackhawk River Rally to be held on Saturday July 15th, 2017 at Len Brown’s Northshore Inn at 700 Northshore Drive Moline, IL. (On the beautiful Rock River) Gates open at 10:30 am and admission at the gate is $10.00 each.

There will be the motorcycle rodeo starting at 2 pm (for which there is an additional small fee to participate), a ride in bike show, food and product vendors, and we will have some new and entertaining games on the agenda. We will also have 2 bands. Sinners and Saints will take the stage from noon to 2 pm with Two Mile Crew performing from 6 pm to 10 pm. We will also be having raffles and a silent auction throughout the day, so there is a little something for everyone.

This event will be one of our main fundraisers for the year. Proceeds from this event will go toward protecting and preserving motorcyclist rights, legislation and promoting motorcycle safety and awareness. So come on out, have some fun and support your local motorcycle rights organization.
