Can't wait for the next rally

To the editor:

This is my third year at the Hells Canyon Motorcycle Rally. I ride from Battle Ground, Wash., and have enjoyed each year. But I have a suggestion or two.

More vendors on the main drag, by making room for them. Plus, when you have a raffle drawing and it is scheduled for 7 p.m., do it on time.

We stood for over an hour waiting for "one more song, one more announcement." If they would have done it on time, it would give the crowd (who also waited) more time to buy from vendors and look at the bikes.

Also, if they give awards for bikes, make sure they can be seen so we know what the bike is like that won the award.

Besides that, I had a wonderful time and was housed with the best hospitality I have ever experienced, by Carl and Jan Hilberg of Baker City.

Your town, along with the Hilbergs, have given me hope that there are still good people life in this U.S.A.

Thank you, all who worked so hard to make this event so great. I'm looking forward to next year.
