Once again it was a well-attended event coordinated and held by the Magic Valley Motorcycle Club. Eli Hinojosa and Dave Lozano were the main coordinators of the event, along with hundreds of volunteers out to make it another memorable shindig for riders from all over the country.
When speaking with Mr. Stefan Wohl, who ran the Bay Area Builders Association “Operation Coming Home” booth about the event, he said, “It was an incredible event. We had a great awareness campaign this year and I have to thank Dave Lozano for all of his hard work and efforts. I spoke with at least 3,000 people and I met people who came all the way from Germany.”
Among the many festivities held, included was the parade, burnout contest and, according to Lozano, the most popular event was the Blox Stars Stunt Riders. “This entire event is put on by volunteers and is a non-profit event in which all the funds go to charity. Nobody is paid and it is all on a volunteer basis.” said Hinojosa. “We had a wonderful event this year, and it is difficult to say if there will be any changes for next year’s event other than I wish the South Padre Island Convention Center was bigger, because we ran out of floor space and we ran out of parking.”
