Active and retired military personnel will have their own campground for the Sturgis North Music Festival and Motorcycle Expo in Spallumcheen this July.
The event runs July 18-22 at Spallumcheen’s MotoPlex Speedway and Event Centre.
A deal has been reached with O’Keefe Ranch to provide camping for people currently involved with or retired from military duty.
“We met with (Sturgis North CEO) Ray Sasseville and (O’Keefe Ranch manager) Glen Taylor this week at the ranch,” said Spallumcheen Coun. Joe VanTienhoven, the township’s ranch representative. “They’re also thinking of using the ranch for camping for the off-duty security personnel.”
