7PM – VEGAS SIGN RIDE
Last year we could not make the ride due to Nascar parade (yeehaw), so we will do it this year. Meet up in the parking lot outside The Golden Gate. This is where the scooters will be parked all weekend long. We will take a quick ride down the strip stopping at the Southern Vegas sign and then loop around and back up to the new Queen Vic Pub in the Riviera for food, drinks and music.
8:30PM-Midnight – QUEEN VICTORIA PUB
Enjoy some British food and spirits at Vegas' newest English Pub in the Riviera Casino (2901 S. Las Vegas Blvd.) The owners of the Queen Vic are looking forward to having us there and will allow us to use the stage and/or do music as we see fit. They will also have dedicated security/scooter parking near the door.

A repeat of last year because it was such a blast. We again have the back alley blocked off behind the Downtown and Beauty Bar for scooter parking. Start the night off at 8pm at the Downtown Bar for early music and smooth drinks. Beauty Bar will open up at 10pm. Beside our excellent DJs, we have a very special band. Some of the best Ska boys from LA agreed to do a one time only for Vegas 2TONE cover band - Rude Boys Outta Jail. Should be a ton of fun.

10AM-1:30PM – SCOOTER SHOW
Shine and show your scooter, meet others, and get to watch the judging for this year's scooter awards and National Build-off Competition. This event will be held in the Golden Gate parking lot. Vendors will have their wares for sale, and get your official rally gear and raffle tickets. BRACELETS WILL NOT BE SOLD SATURDAY NIGHT, SO GET THEM NOW!!!
1:30PM – LAKE LAS VEGAS RIDE
This was a great ride last year and a great stop, and we're happy to offer it again. We will ride by the Lake Mead Scenic Recreational Area to the MonteLago Village at the Lake Las Vegas Resort. The village is a reproduction of a quaint Italian seaside town, with a beautiful view of the lake and tons of fun shops. The Sonrisa Bar & Grill has offered up great food and drink specials just for us. There will be a group ride back afterwards.
10PM-5AM – THE ALLNIGHTER
Once again the Plaza Hotel is letting us use their old style Rat Pack Copa Room which has tiered levels and booths overlooking the dance floor/stage. It does not get anymore old school than this! Although we cannot get in to this room until 10pm, if you saw pictures from last year, you know it will be well worth it. The evenings entertainment will be top shelf too. After years of trying we finally got a band that has its roots as equally deep in music as with scooters - LAs very own The Untouchables. DJs with weekly/monthly nights from US/UK will bring their regional sounds to the dance floor all night long. If you missed the rally or this room last year, you missed something amazing. YOU MUST HAVE RALLY PACK WRIST BAND – THEY WILL NOT SOLD AT THE DOOR. The Copa room is located in the Plaza Casino at the end of Fremont St.

12 NOON-3PM – RED ROCK RIDE
This will be a lovely scoot through desert canyons and scenic parts of the outskirts of Las Vegas enroute to Red Rock Canyon (Park Entrance Fee: $3). Heatseized SC will lead us back to Fred's (see below) afterwards. This will be a fast ride, so slow scooters should consider alternatives options.
3PM – LUNCH AND SCOOTER SHENANIGANS
Scoot or take the shuttle over to Fred's Tavern (4680 S Decatur Blvd. 1 block off Tropicana) for BBQ, drinks, and outdoor scooter events. This location was great for us and has a nice set-up with outdoor seating. It's a easy place to relax on a Sunday. Slidin Thru food truck will be at Fred's to serve up gourmet sliders (including vegetarian). Also, Harbor Freight Tools is a couple doors down, so pick up some cheap tools to take back home with you. This DJed event includes gymkhana competitions, HUGE raffle, and Vegas Rally Awards. The raffle will be held after awards and gymkhana. A shuttle bus will run from Golden Gate Parking Lot to Freds every half hour 3pm to 7pm. Ask parking lot security where the bus picks up.
9PM – CRAZY GERMANS & FOOD
If Vegas hasn't done you in yet, come to The Hofbrauhaus (4510 Paradise Road - across from the Hard Rock) to eat some fine Bavarian food, drink traditional beers, pound on the table, dance around, make noise, and break glasses. As long as you do it with a German accent, sychronize the mayhem to polka music, and laugh a lot, they dont seem to care. Oh, something about spankings too, you gotta be there to understand.
