From the Archives: Rally Special Editions
For many years, the local Sturgis newspaper (Meade County Times) put out a special edition newspaper after each Sturgis Motorcycle Rally. Looking through the archives at the Sturgis Motorcycle Museum & Hall of Fame, we found a stack of these special editions from various years starting in 1984. Each edition was a full newspaper with as many as five sections. They all boast full color covers on each section, and plenty of advertising from local and regional businesses. If you were around any of the years prior to 1988, you could snag one for only $1. From 1988 through the last edition we’ve found in our archives (1999), you could get your copy for $2.
