Future Of Motorcycle Rally To Be Discussed

The future of the Wasaga Beach Motorcycle Rally is up for discussion on Thursday.

The future of the Wasaga Beach Motorcycle Rally is up for discussion.

At a Committee of the Whole meeting tomorrow (Thursday), councillors will look at a staff recommendation to buy the rally from the current organizer and run it as a town event moving forward.

A staff report on the agenda states that because the current organizer is running the Roxodus music festival at Edenvale Aerodrome this summer, he feels it would be too difficult to run both.

Town staff say the organizer has been unsuccessful in his efforts to sell the event and if he can't it would likely have to been cancelled.

The staff report suggests the town buy the event and run it as a two day event which would cost over 47 thousand dollars.

But the report also states that if the town is able to find sponsors, that cost could be reduced.

The motorcycle rally is scheduled for August 16 and 17.
