"Big Norm's" Memorial Spring Swap
Meet, Bike Show, Car Show, BBQ Cookoff, Concert and Penultimate Party!!!
We are ramping up for one helluva celebration this March when High Velocity and the reunited Bounty Hunter
will grace the stage at the Effingham County Fairgrounds with opening act The Jerico River Band, to bring us
what promises to be the best Spring Swap Meet yet!! As usual we will
have Field Games, Bike Show, Car Show, Vendors, the BBQ Cookoff and Fun
for All!! BBQ Cookoff Rules and Information can be found here. If you think you're up for the challenge, the BBQ Cookoff Entry Form can be found here. For all you "Nervous
Nellies" we will have around-the-clock security to protect
you from the rowdy goings-on of the CMA
(Christian Motorcyclists Association). We still have several Vendor
Spaces available in the field as well as in the cozy shelter of the 4-H
Building just off the stage area. Click here for Vendor Agreement Forms. For more information contact any ABATE Officer.
If you have signed up or renewed your membership and have gone over 90 days
without receiving your card, patch, etc.; the state has set up a
hotline to get it straightened out.
