The New Cumberland rally was the unofficial start of the riding season for many years. After Bucky's death the fire dept could have stepped up & kept the rally going as it was a real boon to a struggling small town. I asked the ladies at Wick's about it, they said the problem with the fire dept. was "too many chiefs & not enough Indians". A personal observation, I've had occasion to visit a fair number of fire houses in my 77 years, New Cumberland West Va. was by far the dirtiest & least well organized (in appearance) I've ever seen.
I understand there have been a few folks who have continued to show up at the rally site on Memorial Day weekend year after year, any this year?
