16th Gumbo Rally –
Home of Swamp Scooters
November 10-12, 2017


Come pass a good time and “laisser les bon temp rouler” – or, “let the good times roll” for those not fortunate enough to live here – at Bayou Wilderness RV Resort (www.bwrvr.com) just outside Lafayette, Louisiana.

Come on over for Friday and Saturday nights, bring a tent for primitive camping under beautiful oak trees.

Arrive, get set up, relax and chat with friends over an evening meal; sit around the bonfire to trade tall stories and enjoy beverages which you may purchase from the on-site RV General Store.

Breakfast will be provided. Or just relax at the campsite, and get ready for the bike games that will start at 3pm. This gives you plenty of time to explore the local area. Information on this to see can be obtained on site.

We expect to have the Louisiana State MSF representatives on site, new motorcycles from our local dealers, and some vendors.

Following the bike games, enjoy our 8th Annual Don Royer Gumbo Cook-off early in the evening. This is a competitive event that will have you sampling true down-home recipes. Our local riders all claim to have the winning recipe prepare these unique Cajun gumbos, and it’s said that most of them are right! This is serious business folks, so bring an appetite, and you won’t go away hungry.

There’ll be local music, perhaps some awards and door prizes given out while you sit around the campfire, kicking tires & telling more impossible stories under the starry skies. Ca c’est bon!

Pack and leave.  Bid au revoir to friends both old and new, until next year.  A safe ride home!

Pre-entryfee is $55 which includes a T-shirt and rally pin for the first 150 who pre-register, two nights camping, one breakfast, two evening meals and entertainment. Children 8-12, $20 each. Children under 8, lagniappe (that’s Cajun for free).

Pre-entry deadline is 8th October 2017.  Entry at the door is $60 and T-shirt may be available for purchase.
