Our North Carolina vacation was planned around the South East Vulcan Riders and Owners Club (SEVROC) motorcycle rally in Maggie Valley, North Carolina. The motorcycle rally was a 4-day event (May 15-18). According to an article in the January 2014 issue of Accelerate, the first SEVROC Rally took place in May 2006 at the Applecover Inn in Maggie Valley. Since May 2006, VROC members have been returning to Maggie Valley the same time every year. Bob and I attended one other SEVROC rally. We attended the rally in May 2008. Through May 2013 the Applecover Inn served as rally central, with innkeepers Derrick and Amy Cole catering to the club needs. SEVROC 2014 had a change of venue due to Derrick and Amy not being at the Applecover Inn any longer. Rally central for SEVROC 2014 was at A Holiday Motel, with owners Gabi and Rob Edwards catering to the club needs. My past North Carolina vacation blog posts have provided details about each day’s rally happenings; however, I didn’t share many photographs from the rally in those posts. SEVROC rally photographs, some of which are repeats from past posts, are in this blog post!
An enjoyable part of the SEVROC rally is to meet new people and to get reacquainted with friends whom you have met at other rallies. In between rallies we stay in touch with our friends via the VROC web forum and Facebook.
The rocking chairs in front of your room provided a good location, too, for meeting new people and getting reacquainted with old friends (or to soak up the sun!).
We enjoyed a campfire each night of the rally.
Live entertainment was provided on both Friday and Saturday nights.
Here are a few more photographs, placed in a heart collage, that I took during the SEVROC rally.
I love my VROC friends and look forward to the next time we meet in person.
