About the Grand Marshal, Malcolm Smith

Riding Into HistoryNewsletter, RIH 2016

Dear Volunteers, Exhibitors and Guests,

It is with much regret and great sadness I must let you all know that our planned Grand Marshall, Malcolm Smith, will be unable to attend this years event.  Unfortunately he has fallen ill and is unable to make the trip from his home in California at this time.  While we are all disappointed he is not attending, our primary concern is that he regains his health and recovers from this set back.  We appreciate everyone’s understanding and hope you join us in extending prayers and positive thoughts for Mr. Smith’s healing and improved health.  We are committed to still having a world-class event.  Mitch Boehm, longtime motorcycle magazine editor and publisher, as well as Mr. Smith’s co-writer of his book “Malcolm”, will carry on the Grand Marshal duties and book signings in Mr. Smith’s absence.

We deeply apologize for any disappointment or inconvenience this may cause.
