    What does the day look like at GET-A-GRIP Inc. 2019? We provide a live DJ playing music and keeping you informed, food vendors so you don't go hungry and a huge playground for kids. Now here is just a small example of some of the other things that happen in the quick 5 hours.

There is a show area to park show bikes and a show area to park Show Ride-On;s. Spectators can begin to enter and asked to donate a $1 to the American Cancer Society for their entry.

    12 Noon Vendor and Show registration ends along with the Poker Run participation.

    Let's see, is it not enough that we give away 3 bicycles at our show? Is it not enough that we give away $175 cash in our Poker Run? Well lets try a third one? How about we give away a $50 bill to the Best of Show Bicycle, $50 bill to the Best of Show Ride-On and a $50 Bill to the Best Thinking Outside the Box Award? Now . . . . . have I got you wanting to come yet?

    We want you to experience GET-A-GRIP Inc. and we are pulling out all the stops to get you to come. We are nonprofit and the proceeds benefit the American Cancer Society. Just curious, we are the largest show of its kind in the SE USA. will you be here? We hope so and look forward to seeing you here on March 23, 2019!

    David,
    The G-A-G Show just keeps getting better and better!

    I don’t know anyone who works harder at promoting a show that benefits such a great cause.

    You are truly an awesome person.

    Sadly, I don’t think I can make it this year, but I wish you and your team the best of luck !

    PS, I’m also gonna miss that amazing BBQ and hot slaw....mmmmm

    Had a great time as always! There were some amazing bikes there.

    I also took the opportunity to test fit the new TRM Mullet fenders on a couple of nice custom stretch bikes!

Yes it takes a lot of work from a lot of people but without you it can never be accomplished so we say THANKS!! As you know we put together a video of the event to be placed on Youtube and will post it here as well once it is finished. In closing the only way you will ever know is to experience this one yourself!
