Good gossip is often non-existent and always slow to be spread around, however bad gossip is rampant and spreads like a wild fire. It is often unfortunate when we find ourselves on the tail end of the bad gossip, such is the case for the Alpena County Fairboard. From what we hear is that the Alpena County Fairboard, and the Alpena Chamber of Commerce are responsible for the H.O.G. Rally not hosting their events at the Fairgrounds. We can say with the utmost passion that the rumor is not true. From the start when we first heard that the Rally was coming to town the Fairboard was excited that they were going to use the grounds. Two months ago we found out that they are only using the grounds for those members that want to camp. According to their schedule posted on www.mistatehogrally.com they will only be at the Fairgrounds as a group on Saturday from 3:30-4 p.m. for the Parade of Harleys.
