TAKE A BOW BIKE NIGHT 2020!!!
Wow......I'm at a loss for words, so WOW! Our Bike Night 2020 started the season back on June 3rd - Sickies Garage met everyone with smiles and stayed that way even through the wind and rain last night. To all Sickies staff, what a wonderful group of people you are, be proud for you sure know how to be perfect hosts! We had picture-perfect weather all 13 weeks until mother nature played with us just a bit on our finale - BUT that didn't stop one bit the enthusiasm our crowd displayed, bikers started showing up around 3:45, picking a spot to park their treasured bike. These motorcycles were rolling into Sickies early, for they were the chosen ones. The bikes that had been tagged earlier in the season as a possible "Bike of the year". The drama started unfolding. Somewhere in the audience there Fargo Sickies Garage folks were there, seeing how we get it done! One of the highlights truly, was when Dolly from Cool 98.7 stepped onto a scissor lift crane, slowly climbing into the sky as our awesome bike night crowd dug deep into their pockets and donated what they could to Red River Valley Hospice - Bismarck Branch - Over $300 went out to them. Thank you to EVERYONE who gave from their heart.
We took advantage of some high spirited gamers and played a round of egg-Olympics, a dramatic close frozen t-shirt struggle was barely won by a charming contestant - But the real story was WHO was going to capture "Bike of the year"? As the rain started falling slowly, not one person from the crowd of at least 500 left, Kevin Fitzgerald stood proudly among them. The breathtaking teal 2009 Harley Street Glide stood out among all the rest and is our "Bike of the Year" - Congrats Kevin.
The anticipation now was for the Grand Prize - The Bike Trailer that had been off to the side all season long for everyone to dream about owning - But one man stood alone as Barry Schmidt's ticket was called! Vern owner of Extreme Sales was wearing an ear-to-ear smile - watching someone so thrilled to win his baby.
To put a wrap on Bike Night 2020 is to simply say that all of this would not be possible for our terrific sponsors that were on-site last night! I also want to personally say that it was a blast meeting everyone that came by all season long! B-Fish my co-host as always week by week so great! Our Townsquare Media Team was there every week greeting everyone with courtesy and warmth. Thank you again to all of our sponsors :
