#03NR11 - Deadlines Approaching to EXPOSE YOURSELF at the BEAST!

One of the best ways to EXPOSE YOURSELF to the issues that affect motorcyclists' rights and safety is attendance at a Motorcycle Riders Foundation (MRF) conference. This year's BEAST of the East conference will be no exception. BEAST of the East 2003 is co-sponsored by United Bikers of Maine (UBM), and will be held at the South Portland Sheraton.

The April 1 deadline for pre-registration for the BEAST of the East is approaching fast! When you pre-register, you save $10 on the registration fee. In addition, you must make your hotel reservations prior to April 1 in order to receive the special room rate of $75 per night. Be sure to tell the hotel that you are with the MRF's BEAST of the East conference in order to get the special rate. Finally, if you want to register for the BEAST of the East as a chapter, you must also do so before April 1. Visit the MRF website at www.mrf.org/events.php for registration information and further details. Contact Carol Downs, MRF Director of Events and Conferences at carol@mrf.org or Beverly Waters, MRF Office Manager at bev@mrf.org or 202-546-0983 if you have questions regarding BEAST of the East registration.

If you are unable to attend this year's BEAST of the East conference, you still have other great opportunities to EXPOSE YOURSELF and your business to a guaranteed audience of motorcyclists' rights advocates! For information about conference sponsorships starting at $50.00, visit the MRF website at www.mrf.org/botesponsor.php or contact Paul W. Cote, MRF Marketing Director, at 978/388-3629 or paul@mrf.org. Business sponsorship deadline is April 20, 2003.

This year's BEAST of the East will begin on Friday evening at 6:30 with Leo "Mac" McCreary, President of UBM greeting attendees and bring everyone up to date on issues that are directly affecting riders in the Northeast. Mac's presentation will be followed by an opportunity for conference participants to meet the MRF Board of Directors and ask questions.

Saturday morning's BEAST of the East agenda includes Tom Wyld, MRF Vice President-Government Relations, bringing everyone up to speed on our current issues, such as the EPA's proposed highway motorcycle emissions standards, healthcare, and the reauthorization of the Transportation Equity Act of the 21st Century (TEA-03). Tom's presentation will be followed by a panel discussion regarding TEA-03 including Sherm Packard and Bob Letourneau.

This year's BEAST of the East Saturday afternoon breakout sessions include Effective Public Relations, Motorcycle Insurance 101, Dealing with Difficult People, an open discussion about loud pipes, and a more in-depth discussion about the EPA and street motorcyclists, "YOU GET NO VOTE!"

In addition to being a fantastic learning opportunity, the BEAST of the East is a great chance to EXPOSE YOURSELF to other people who are as passionate about motorcyclists' rights as you are. We look forward to seeing all of you EXPOSING YOURSELVES in South Portland, Maine!
