14th Canadian National H.O.G. Rally
Based on years of empirical success, this year’s Canadian National H.O.G. Rally will be held in the beautiful foothills of the Canadian Rockies. Deeley Harley-Davidson Canada, the exclusive distributor of Harley-Davidson motorcycles in Canada, continues to invest in its most loyal Customer base: H.O.G. members.
H.O.G. Manager Gina McNeil enthusiastically comments: "Here at H.O.G. Canada, it has certainly been a year of change. While embracing these changes, I am very dedicated to maintaining a strong relationship with our most loyal Customers: our over 50,000 Canadian H.O.G.® members, who not only value our great range of product, but who also breathe and live the lifestyle of the open road. The upcoming National Rally is only one way in which we say thank you to our members for believing so strongly in our Brand."
Mirroring the legendary Calgary Stampede, Harley-Davidson enthusiasts across Canada will team up and "Rock the Rockies" in typical cowboy style from August 13 to 15.
The line-up of entertainment will feature the wild tunes of Jason D. Williams for the opening ceremonies, a Warthog Untapped event at the Big Rock Brewery, and to finish it all off, an adrenalin-pumped Cody Snyder live rodeo performance at Ranchman’s – the official hospitality location of the Canadian Professional Rodeo Association.
One of the many events open to the public will be the Show ‘N Shine on August 14th staged on Stephen Avenue Walkway between 1st St. SE and 1st St. SW. Spectators will not only have the opportunity to admire wildly customized motorcycle entries in categories such as Best Antique and Radical Custom, but they will also be able to vote for their favourites in the "People’s Choice" category.
Escorted by Alberta police, an estimated 800 participants will kick off a formal motorcycle parade at Canada Olympic Park on Sunday 15thof August, leading down Sarcee Trail SW, and past Richmond Road SW to offer spectators the best viewing points, and will finally end at The Military Museums. Here, CANEX will join Deeley Harley-Davidson® Canada executives in the unveiling of a specially customized motorcycle, while the public will be able to view exciting motorcycle field games, such as the "Motorcycle Slow Race" and "Musical Bails".
