Hodaka Days 2022 is on!

Good news for Hodaka fans!

Hodaka Days is a “GO!”  During a recent Zoom meeting, the “movers and shakers” who provide the “people power” to put on Hodaka Days decided that it appears that it can be put together again!

While there ARE complications, as a group, we think we can make it happen again!  While exact details are still in development, some over-all plans can be reported at this time.

We will be working to provide venues which are outdoors for virtually all activities - including the banquet/auction.  We are exploring renting a towable stage to be installed in the Athena City Park for the duration of the event.  We are shooting for the “normal” full slate of activities with additions such as a Celebration of the Life of Chuck Swanson (former General Manager at PABATCO), and remembrances of other notable Hodaka supporters tied to specific Hodaka Days events.  Activities planned include the Bad Rock Trail Ride, Umatilla County TT(road ride/poker run), Bike Show, Swap Meet, Scrambles, Observed Trial, Seminar, Parade, Ice Cream Social (possibly at the Gem Theater – future home of the Hodaka Museum) etc., etc.

Just so you’ll know, some of the complications are potentially quite serious – such as:  There is a large music festival (many thousands of attendees) scheduled in the area for our “standard” Hodaka Days dates of the last full weekend in June which has nearly tripled room rates compared to our last gathering in 2019.  We’re in the process of negotiating discounted group rates at a local hotel and hope to have an announcement shortly.

NOTE:  All “official” Hodaka Days 2022 announcements and updates be posted in our blog on the club web site www.hodakaclub.org.  They may be reposted elsewhere, but we intend to use this blog as our primary tool to keep folks informed and up to date.
