Bobby will be joining Chibs at the 2015 Hollister Freedom Rally

Like I told you folks, the 2015 Hollister Freedom Rally will be the best one ever. My announcement that Tommy Flannagan, ‘Chibs’ from the hit television series Sons of Anarchy was going to join the Hollister Freedom Rally received a huge response. Now the wise people at Convexx have added another member of the cast to our rally roster. Mark Boone Junior or Bobby of SOA fame will be joining Tommy Flannagan on Saturday July Fourth for autographs and pictures with their loyal fans. I can’t tell you exactly where you will find them in downtown Hollister during our Hollister Freedom Rally but I know they will be here. As I get more details I will share them with you. You can go to and sign up for their newsletter for up to date information.

I haven’t been this excited about our rally in years. The return of the rally after a one year hiatus in 2007 was exciting for me because as the chairperson for the Hollister Motorcycle Rally Committee, I had the privilege of being a part of its return. I was real excited when the rally was revived in 2013 after the absence of one for four years. However, the lack of events and entertainment in 2014 was disappointing and I feared that once again our rally would disappear. Enter Chuck Schwartz and Convexx. I’m proud to say that I played a small part in their taking over the promotion of the rally. They are backing up their promise to make the Hollister Freedom Rally the biggest and best motorcycle rally on the West Coast, one that I believe will someday rival Sturgis.

The folks at Bolado Park are taking names and phone numbers and at the end of the month they will begin filling their camp sites. The fee of $25.00 a night blows the doors off of hotel fees of more than $200.00 with a three night minimum. I’m looking forward to hearing that a smart entrepreneur has purchased a large piece of land to implement camping and entertainment close to rally central. Look at what Rod Woodruff has done with the Buffalo Chip in Sturgis. He houses thousands of rally faithful in August as well as putting on a party for Victory owners, and hosts concerts and events that bring a flood of business to the normally sleepy town of Sturgis, South Dakota.

My mind is so full prospects for Hollister that I could pop a blood vessel. We have so many wonderful California attractions within a hundred mile radius that the possibilities are endless. If I was twenty years younger, with my old priority list in place, I’d pursue the opportunity with vigor. However, I’m fifty five years old. God, family and writing are tops on my list. I love owning Johnny’s Bar & Grill because of its place in history and the wonderful friends I’ve made. I’ve had the privilege of meeting people from all over the world that are honored to be standing in my iconic bar. They are thrilled to pictures and get their questions answered about what happened in 1947 during the so-called Hollister riots. They enjoy taking a piece of Johnny’s home through a t-shirt, koozie, ride pin or one of our other many collectables that I am proud to provide them with.

Tell your friends and make your reservations folks. This is going to be one awesome motorcycle rally.

    • Charisse says:

      The many people that enjoyed the show are excited about their appearance and lots of them are real bikers. How about a positive outlook my friend?

    • Latiana says:

      Actually, yes they are. Do your research.

      • Charisse says:

        Thanks for the input. I have to be honest, I don’t know a lot about the guys on the show and I appreciate your reply. It’s good to know that they are real bikers. Thanks for doing the research for me and replying to the Negative Nelly comment.

    • Carl says:

      They may have been just actors when show began but after 7 seasons the ones who didn’t had learned and ridden more miles than most “bikers”.

    I met Tig from SOA in NY and he was a friendly as can be, not even sure what his real name is. They are actors and if they ride too that’s wonderful. I Just got your book and have been home sick today reading it cover to cover. So nice to meet you in Albany. I explained to a friend that I had met you and the person said, “that lady has a smile and a glow around her that makes you feel good.” I looked at this big burly biker and thought, ” Yes she does!” lol I so needed to read this book as I am making changes in my life and its the perfect time for me to be home sick to reflect on my spiritual journey. Wishing you all the best and some day, I will make to Johnny’s and say hello!

    • Charisse says:

      I enjoyed meeting you too. I’m sorry you are sick but if you are home reading my book I’m glad for that. I know i will see you at Johnny’s one day. You are a spectacular lady. I’m praying for you and hoping that you are blessed by our story.
