The unanimous vote to bring back our Hollister Motorcycle Rally still has me awe-stricken. I knew a yes vote was eminent but I couldn’t have dreamed of the meeting going as well as it did. I’m so excited I could burst. Those who know me are aware that I never stopped fighting for or believing that we would one day have a rally again. Mike Corbin of Corbin Pacific Inc., the renowned motorcycle seat builder introduced Mark Cresswell from Worldwide Dynamics Inc. to pro-rally councilmen Ray Friend and Robbie Scattini months ago and the dream started taking shape. Mark is the glue that will hold this event together and make it a huge success. His years in the industry and the connections that go along with them, will make this the best rally ever. The Team spirit supporting the event, from the city to law enforcement and the San Benito County Chamber of Commerce is like nothing we have ever seen. New Chamber President, Debbie Taylor’s experience and enthusiasm is what we’ve always needed and I look forward to working with her. Thank you Chief Westrick, Clint Quilter, new mayor Ignacio Valaquez and the entire city council. The decision is one that you are sure to be proud of.
The rally will be held Friday July 5th and Saturday July 6th. And YES, YES, YES, the motorcycles will be back on San Benito Street. Hallelujah!
