80TH ANNIVERSARY - STURGIS MOTORCYCLE RALLY
Friday, August 7 – Sunday, August 16, 2020
The Sturgis Motorcycle Rally (one of the largest in the world) is an American motorcycle rally held annually in Sturgis, South Dakota which is flooded with over 500,000 bikers from all across the globe. It began in 1938 and was originally held for stunts and races, but has evolved into being a meeting for motorcycle enthusiasts. It brings significant income to the citizens of Sturgis, a town of only 6,627 people, as well as to the surrounding areas.
A lot of you are preparing for the 80th Anniversary of the famous Sturgis Rally. This has become a great event for those in attendance and certainly a great event for the state each year.
Due to these unprecedented times we are experiencing in our world today, the rally will take on a new look this year in order to keep not only those attending the rally safe but those that live in the community of Sturgis and the surrounding areas.
This large of an event always brings on a great deal of responsibility on the business owners and their staff in serving alcohol during this “hectic” time of year and all that goes with for a safe and enjoyable event. Those that are serving alcohol must know the laws in serving it safely and will undergo “TAM” training to be certified in this area. Both staff and volunteers will take this class in preparation to insure a safe and enjoyable event for all those involved. TAM certification is not only important during this event, but for all your staff throughout the year to become certified or renew their certification.
Please call our office (#800-721-1789 or 605-343-1844) at any time if you are in need of a class for your staff to become certified during this time or anytime throughout the year. There are several options to consider in getting this done. We will now be offering “virtual” type classes for anyone wanting that “in-house” one on one class experience so that you can take the class from your workplace or home without having to travel to do so. The minimum we would have in a class is a total of 20 people.
Have a great and safe 80th Sturgis Rally!! Please follow the CDC guidelines as you travel to attend this event, so that everyone can enjoy it and still remain safe.
