Our First Rally 2003
Drumheller

After 15 years of being the only Canadian Chapter of WITW, The Edmonton Chapter was joined by the Desert Dolls Chapter from Medicine Hat, Alberta. In celebration of this momentous occasion the two chapters decided to get together in Drumheller to Celebrate and as they say the rest is history

2004 Rocky Mtn House

Wow what a difference a year can make, 90 women showed up for the 2nd Annual event and the event had a 50's party theme
Theme was the 50's and 2 Chapters attended with appr.90 women attending.
The poker run went as well as could be expected considering the weather. The David Thompson Resort fed us a wonder supper that was followed by Elvis being in the building! 

2005 Drayton Valley, AB

Drayton Valley Blues was our theme and we all went all out.  By this time we had expanded to 3 Canadian WITW Chapters with Saskatoon joining us.  So to make them feel welcome we got them to organize the Awards and party.  Now I’m not sure how or why but for some reason they felt that I needed to receive the “BOOBIE” award, which was actually a very large blue bra with all kinds of “bling” on it, complete with Saskatoon berry pompoms on the pointiest parts.  Karen Hamerton was been chastised several years in a row for forgetting to bring it to the following rally.  Damn that “old timers”!

2006 Red Deer, AB

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

2007 Saskatoon, SK

No Saskatoon is not in Alberta, but since they really wanted a chance to organize the event and they choose a “Hawaiian” theme and The Bridge City Thunder Chapter t I heard they did an awesome job.  About 80 women braved the “infamous” Saskatchewan highways and the monster thunderstorms for a weekend of fun. 

2008 Grande Prairie, AB

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. 

2009 high River, AB

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.

 

2010 Camrose, AB

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

2011 Wetaskiwin, AB

Another successful rally and the theme this year was Tacky Tourist and once again the participants did not disappoint. I would give a better commentary but I don't really remember much of this rally LOL. I do know we were in the bar attached to the hotel, I think?? We did do Karaoke at Leon's or something like that and there was alot of dancing on the tables this year for some reason, we may have taken the Tacky Tourist thing to the extreme.

2012 Drumheller, AB

The 10th year anniversary of the Rally and it only make sense to celebrate this milestone in Drumheller where it all started. The Desert Dolls and Chinook Outriders hosted this event which had a theme of Prehistoric and approximately 110 cave dwellers came out to have fun.
