Ribfest is now a fund raiser for Lee Waggoner

Ribfest 2013 October 18th - 20th, 2013 Nunnelly, TN
Benefit & fund raiser for Lee Waggoner's medical bills.

BMWMCON Ribfest - everything you need to know is here

This rally has been put on by Lee Waggoner for several years and he was joined by the BMW Motorcycle Club of Nashville for the last 3 years.


Lee fell ill & was hospitalized on 9/29/2013. He has since been dianosed with West Nile Virus. Currently he looks to have a long stay in the hospital and, at the encouragement & full support of his daughter, Ribfest will go on. Ribfest will now be a fund raiser to benefit Lee.

BMWMCON - donating the proceeds of the rally

Blue Ridge Adventure Training - donating fees for off road training classes
Off road training classes held 10/17-18.

We'll have lots of great gear and swag for a silent auction through the BMWMCON, GS Giants and Adventure Kartell.

Please join us for great riding, food, camaraderie but most of all to support our friend.

Pre-register HERE by 10/10 - $40 - $45 at the gate

Day passes for Sat $25 - includes ribs / chicken

We want to be able to make appropriate plans so PLEASE pre-register.

If you can't make it to Ribfest please consider a monetary donation ClickDONATE button at top right

The Rally site is a privately owned farm approximately 50 miles southwest of Nashville.
From the intersection of TN 100 and TN North 48 (there is an Exxon on the corner), ride North 0.3 miles then turn right onto Bells Branch Road.
Ride 1.8 miles then take the left fork onto Bells Branch Trail. This is now a smooth gravel road.
Ride 0.3 miles to driveway on the left. There is a green gate. There will be signs.
Cell service is spotty. There's a new tower in Nunnelly. You can receive text messages.
GPS coordinates: N 35 51.776, W 87 25.965

I was sort of planing on going, now definitely going, currently a starving student, but bringing some cash to donate. Lee is a great guy, was at the Biltmore RA rally hanging out with him and some friends. Looking forward to seeing great support for Lee at this event!!

Please consider signing up. We'd like nothing better than to give Lee a few thousand dollars to help with his hospital bills.

To sign up, send your payment to support@blueridgeadventuretraining.com via Paypal. Any donation is appreciated but $149 is the minimum. Please specify your interest in the Thursday class or the Friday class.

I was a motorcycle instructor at the BMW Performance Center from 2010-2012 and will be teaching. Another instructor who still works at the PC has expressed interest in helping out. I guarantee you won't be disappointed.





Thanks for doing this, Blair!
