Motorcyclist Support

Just wanted to let you all know that I am outraged over the eminent domain abuse by Showshoe who is cuddling up with your local politicians. I am not local to your area but live in the eastern panhandle of WV. I do however enjoy visiting your area to ride my motorcycle.

Every year Snowshoe sponsors a motorcycle rally called Freedom Fest. As a motorcyclist, I will not attend this event because of what they are trying to do. I have emailed them to explain why. I have already started spreading the word to fellow riders asking them not to patronize Snowshoe and to also email them in protest because of this eminent domain issue and have recieved very positive response from most.

Keep up the good fight.

Re: Motorcyclist Support
Freedom Fest came and went, and I didn't hear much about it this year. I get the sense that it wasn't marketed as well as in previous years. I'm not sure the eminent domain issue had much to do with a reportedly low turnout. Any theories?

Yeah, well I have a few theories . . . :-)
