Heavy rain ends motorcycle swap meet

Reports from Lewiston Sun Journal states that the first annual motorcycle swap meet, hosted by the Dixfield League of Riders at the American Legion, was forced to shut down due to the bad weather.

The swap meet was scheduled for 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., but according to Ed Ellis, director of the Dixfield League of Riders and first vice commander of the local Legion post, they had to shut down early after the rain began coming down harder.

Earlier in the day, outdoor vendors had to fight against sporadic bouts of rain, while selling motorcycle parts on sale.┬áThe rain didn’t stop residents from stopping by and checking out the sale while legion members cooked hamburgers and hot dogs for those in attendance. The money raised will be going to the American Legion and the League of Riders.

Shortly after shutting down the swap meet, Ellis said he and the rest of the Dixfield League of Riders would meet to reschedule the event. The event will possibly resume in August so that riders can avoid riding in the rain.
