Our First Rally 2003
Women in the Wind (WITW) strives to:
Mardi Gras in August was how we celebrated the 2006 rally. Missy from the Edmonton chapter did an outstanding job getting the hall decorated. Everyone had an awesome time at the dinner and awards.
Red Deer saw the number of participants peak at 135, with women of all walks of life, all ages, all makes of motorcycle and all types of rides from crotch rocket to cruise to tourer.
With the number of Canadian Chapters now up to 5 things were looking good
If you can remember this rally you weren’t there. That’s right the theme was the “60’s”. Complete with a Doobee Rolling Contest. The weekend started with a limo right through the town with all of us in our PJs. The limo dropped us off at a night club across the street from the host hotel and we all went in for a “good time”. Karen (that would be me) had a good time “dirty dancing” with a young man from the area. He thought he was doing good until I pulled his shirt over his head. And it was all caught on video, too bad I wasn’t there to see the look on his face when he viewed it.
Saturday saw us all riding to Dawson Creek, BC for our fun ride, with a stop in front of the HUGE Beaver in Beaverlodge, AB. Was that some kind of a pun? Many of us managed to find Mile 0 for the Alaska Highway, but I wasn’t one of those who did. I did find a Tim Horton’s.
The supper on Sat. night was wild to say the least. Cindy from Montana proved she had no idea what to do with a Doobee once she put them in her ears. And with about 40 women present we decided we wouldn’t all fit into the VW Bug, settling for having our picture taken with it instead.
Mother Nature tried to dampen our spirits but we couldn’t be stopped that easily. Instead of the usual Show N Shine we voted for the “Dirtiest” bike instead. Not as many women showed up this rally but those of us who did had a great time. The theme was Disco and the Drayton Valley girls had the most awesome costumes again. The number of Canadian Chapters had continued to grow and by 2009 we were up to 5 or 6 chapters.
The poker run had a few hiccups as I didn’t for see the parking lot of the Airplane Museum being closed for an annual Folk Music Festival. But since we are not real worried about when or where the cards are drawn, we still a winner and loser for the poker hands.
Well it was time to let the “Dolls Out”. Our theme was “Barbie Gone Bad” and boy did we have fun with that theme. Of course all the closet dominatrix came out and the definition of trailer trash was about 3 levels above us this weekend.
We started the weekend off with a fantastic BBQ provided by the House of Thunder Harley Davidson in Camrose, then on to Forestburg for the next stop in the poker rally, the next stop was to Donalda before heading back to Camrose. We had a fantastic ride through the surrounding area with several stops at some very interesting museums. The pictures pretty much say it all for this rally, if we could publish them that is Bahahaha
