The Massachusetts Motorcycle Association (MMA) will host this year's Conference. The dates are April 19th - 21st at the Radisson Hotel in Chelmsford, Massachusetts.

This year there will be a few changes to the way things are usually done for Beast of the East. The MMA will be opening a hospitality suite on Thursday evening beginning at 6:00 pm and host an informal meet and greet. Many attendees and MRF Board Members arrive on Thursday and usually spend big money in the hotel restaurant and bar renewing old acquaintances and making new ones. We thought this would be a great way to enjoy a relaxed atmosphere and spend some quality time with our fellow freedom fighters from around the country. There will be finger sandwiches, light snacks, and your favorite beverages available.

On Friday morning, the MMA invites all attendees to meet in the hotel lobby to depart on a scenic ride/drive to the Lexington/Concord battlefield. As a historical note, the date for this ride is on April 19th which is the exact 238th Anniversary of the battle that started the American Revolution and our quest for freedom as an independent nation. In honor of this Anniversary, the ride/drive will be named the Nathan "Buck" Kittredge ride. Buck is one of the early founders of the MRF and a former President. He was truly one of our leading freedom fighters. A small donation for the MRF A & E will be requested. There will be a private guided tour of the battlefield for Beast of the East attendees and we will stop for lunch. We plan on returning to the hotel by 3:00 pm for the afternoon breakout sessions.
