The Chautauqua Sports Hall of Fame is presenting the Chuck Boehler Memorial Dice Run and Motorcycle Show on Sunday, August 10th, at the Lakewood Rod & Gun Club.
The event is being held to honor the late Chuck Boehler, a 1989 inductee of the Chautauqua Sports Hall of Fame. Boehler was a well-known figure in the sport of motorcycle racing, nationally and internationally.
The approximately 100-mile dice run begins and ends at the Lakewood Rod & Gun Club and includes stops at scenic areas throughout Chautauqua County. Cash prizes will be awarded. Real Estate Advantage is the dice run sponsor.

Registrations will also be accepted the day of the event at the Lakewood Rod & Gun Club, 8:00-9:00 a.m., at a cost of $15 for the rider and $10 for the passenger.
Following the dice run, riders will display their bikes on the lakeside lawn of the Lakewood Rod & Gun Club in a non-competitive motorcycle show from 12:00-4:00 p.m. The public is invited to the motorcycle show free of charge. All are welcome to enjoy the facilities of the Lakewood Rod and Gun Club. There will be a chicken BBQ and music. Raffles will also be held.
Harley-Davidson of Jamestown, Hector's Powersports and Reid's Powersports will have vendor booths displaying their latest products and services.
The highlight of the afternoon will be the unveiling of the Boehler Bike. Dr. Charles Sinatra, a national prize winning restorer of vintage cars and motorcycles, discovered the last motocross bike Chuck Boehler raced competitively, a 1973 Greeves. Sinatra and his crew have painstakingly restored the machine and will reveal their craftsmanship as a tribute to Boehler. The bike will then be donated to the Chautauqua Sports Hall of Fame, 15 W. Third St., Jamestown.
Proceeds from the Chuck Boehler Memorial Dice Run and Motorcycle Show will benefit the Chautauqua Sports Hall of Fame, a 501(c)(3) organization formed in 1981 to honor and preserve the sports legacy of Chautauqua County.
