Thursday - Sept. 22

Slingshots will be welcomed with an exclusive “Meet & Greet” event at the Magnuson Hotel.

Friday - Sept. 23 
Action revs up with an event hosted by Brewer Cycles in Henderson, NC. Enjoy lunch with a Polaris factory representative in their huge showroom. After lunch, we’ll head out for an afternoon of riding through the scenic lake area, which will end at the nostalgic Raleigh Road Outdoor Drive-in Theatre, where a movie will be especially chosen for us.

Saturday - Sept. 24
Get ready for a very unique experience – a Moonshine Run, with a stop for a taste and tour at the Bondurant Distillery. Collect a symbolic Moonshine Jug to carry as we run through the back country roads of VA and NC like the early bootleggers did. If you’re familiar with the history of the Bondurant family from the movie “Lawless,” come learn the truth from surviving family members.
The Moonshine Run ends at the Big Buggs Island Blues Bash. Show off your ride at the ‘Slingshot Show and Shine’ at the Blues Bash entrance. Enjoy the music of some of the best Blues Bands in the Country. As a bonus, the Blues Bash promoters are providing 50% discounted tickets and VIP Seating for Slingshot owners pre-registered for this event.

Sunday - Sept. 25
Join us for a Breakfast Bash sponsored by United Realty in the Vendor Exhibit Area, which will bring another opportunity to show off your Slingshot.



This event was conceived and organized by Slingshot owners and is staffed entirely by volunteers.
"Not for Profit – All for Fun!"


Need even more fun?

There’s plenty more to do as the local area offers something for everyone. Clarksville is on a 50,000-acre lake that straddles VA and NC with world record fishing. Boat rentals are available. For auto racing enthusiasts, several racetracks are just down the road. Local wineries offer tours and tastings. History buffs will find deep ties here to the Civil War and the beginnings of our Nation. Walkers will enjoy miles of trails at Occoneechee State Park and the Tobacco Heritage Trail. Farmers’ Markets offer organic food and crafts, and there’s shopping and great restaurants nearby too.
