Washington, DC, March 10, 2008 — Each year the Motorcycle Riders Foundation holds two regional and one national conference to provide motorcyclists with the necessary tools to assist them with the fundamentals of motorcycle rights, education and awareness. This year the Massachusetts Motorcycle Association is hosting The BEAST of the East at the Marriott Boston Peabody in Peabody, Massachussets from April 18-20.

Attendance to the Beast of East is open to both MRF members and the general public with members receiving a discounted registration price. Individuals wishing to attend this conference will receive $10 off the regular registration fee if you register for this event before March 26, 2008. Registrations received before the deadline will be $60 for MRF Members and $70 for non-members. After March 26, the fee will increase to $70 and $80 respectively. The seminar cost will cover all the seminars for the weekend as well as a dinner banquet on Saturday night.

The Motorcycle Riders Foundation does extend a chapter/district group rate for every conference, which must be received prior to the early registration deadline. This group rate of $100 will cover the cost of seminars for an unlimited number of attendees from that chapter or district but unfortunately does not cover the cost of the banquet on Saturday night. Any individuals wishing to attend the banquet can pay a separate $35 fee before or at registration for Beast of the East.
