The Chautauqua Sports Hall of Fame is presenting The Chuck Boehler Memorial Dice Run and Motorcycle Show on Sunday, August 10, 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, both nationally and internationally.
The dice run will begin and end at the Lakewood Rod & Gun Club and will include stops at scenic areas throughout Chautauqua County. Registration fees are only $10 and cash prizes will be awarded.
Following the dice run, riders are encouraged to display their bikes at the Rod & Gun Club along the shore of Chautauqua Lake in a non-competitive motorcycle show. Participants are invited to enjoy the bar and other facilities of the club.
A chicken BBQ and music will be available. Raffles will also be held. The public is invited to the motorcycle show free of charge. 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-caliber restorer of vintage cars and motorcycles, discovered the last motocross bike Boehler raced competitively, a 1973 Greeves. Doc and his crew have painstakingly restored the machine and will reveal their craftsmanship in a tribute to Boehler.
Proceeds from the Chuck Boehler Memorial Dice Run and Motorcycle Show will benefit the Chautauqua Sports Hall of Fame, a 501(C)(3) not-for-profit, organized in 1981 to honor and preserve the sports legacy of Chautauqua County.
