Are you bored and frustrated with this winter weather? Wishing you could spend more time on motorcycle-related activities? Well here’s your chance to get started on your motorcyclists’ rights agenda for the coming year! On-line registration for the MRF’s Beast of the East 2002 is now available on the MRF website.

The MRF hosts three annual conferences, designed to educate and motivate those in the motorcyclists' rights community. Over 6,000 motorcyclists’ rights activists have attended MRF-sponsored regional and national workshops since 1985. These workshops provide the nuts and bolts, “user friendly” subjects and training to assist motorcyclists in defending, building and strengthening their grass roots organizations. We encourage you to visit INB Radio (http://www.inbradio.com/mrf/), where you can listen to live broadcasts recorded from some of the 2000 and 2001 MRF-sponsored workshops that will give you a better idea about the types of issues that are discussed and presented.

The first MRF-sponsored event of the year is Beast of the East 2002, which is co-sponsored by the Massachusetts Motorcycle Association. This event will be held April 26-28, 2002 at the Sheraton Lexington Hotel in Lexington, Massachusetts. In addition to being a fantastic learning opportunity, this event is a great chance to meet other people who are as passionate about motorcyclists' rights as you are. To register on-line, please visit the Events and Conferences pages on the MRF website (http://www.mrf.org/events.php). You can also find a printable poster and registration form at that location, as well as hotel reservation information.

The MRF has made one significant change this year with regard to registration for Beast of the East 2002. In addition to individual registrations, we have added an option for chapter registration. If you choose this alternative, a chapter/district/local pays a $100 registration fee for an unlimited number of attendees from that chapter/district/local. The dinner is not included in this fee, and must be paid for each attendee separately. If you would like to register your chapter for Beast of the East 2002, please contact Pam Piacenti (pam@mrf.org), Director of Events and Conferences. Chapter registrations must be received and all attendees’ names must be submitted before March 26, 2002.

Best of the West, the MRF’s second regional conference of the year, will be held in Spokane, Washington from June 7-9, 2002. The Meeting of the Minds is the MRF's premier leadership conference that boasts an audience from across the nation and around the world. It will be held in Lansing, Michigan from September 26-29, 2002. More details about both of these conferences will be posted as soon as they are available.

For additional information concerning any of the MRF's conferences, please feel free to contact Pam Piacenti (pam@mrf.org), Director of Events and Conferences.
