1st Annual Biker Rodeo - Cancelled

Date: July 22, 2017

Location: Rock County Fairgrounds, W. Highway 20, Bassett, NE 68714

Information: Bassett Post #123 ALR - We have come up against a major scheduling conflict. Our fairgrounds (our best location of size to hold such an event) are not available to us due to double booking. We will have to cancel the event entirely and hope that we have not caused anyone difficulty. The response from many chapters made us all in Bassett very excited. We are going to make every effort to come back with bigger and better plans next year.
