It has been several years since I was a Roscoe's. Last time I was there, there was a vendor from Tampa I think that would redo motorcycle seats. They were close to the entrance where all the fun was, it was a really nice and really big black guy. Anyone know who I am referring too? I am trying to locate him/them.

There are a lot places to go to see this ,that and the other, but when you can go to a place and you feel like your coming home it doesn't get any better than that, I can't say thank you big enough, I can't get there early enough or stay long enough and the friends I've met there, and the ones I'll meet in the future I look forward to that already, I just wish there was 2 or 3 shows. Fuck Daytona and Sturgis They only want your money, and I've been to both, they SUCK! I'll be back to Roscoe's till they stop, and I don't ever want to think of that, Thank you Roscoe, and all the great friends I've met and will meet, God bless you guys... see you soon

Just cant wait for the best damn biker party there is, this is better than anything in Daytona. Can I get a FUCK yeah?


Had a great time over the past few years. But if it is BYOB, Whiskey does not come in a can. WTF . Don’t you mean BYOC?


From Roscoe: True, RCC 2012 is a BYOB event, BUT you can always put your liquor in a PLASTIC container.


Went to the old out house natonials years ago but will be there this year from the other side of fla


Hoping to get into vending this year. Cant wait for the amazing time to come ...we've heard stories :)


Hello Roscoe, Hello David, I enjoyed reading your story about meemaw. Maybe I will make it to this years challenge. The years past are still never far from my thoughts..... Fondly, your friend, kellie.

  Kellie O'BRIEN

It's fucking the best! It"s my only time in the year to get away and it's a blast! I hope you keep coming up with more surprises, I'm goin every year, thanks bro! Great event, keep it up!

  Daniel Richard
I just made some chili, and began to think about Roscoe's 2011. Hank, your hot chili was the best yet, nice job to you and your helpers! It was spicy hot, but yet flavorful. I'm looking forward to Roscoe's 2012!
  Mikey C
(As a vendor) I did better than I ever thought I could do.  On the way out I stopped out front and tried to pay for next year because I knew I was coming back! I'd felt a lonlieness ever since loosing my parents and grandy;  for those 6 days I was at Roscoes' it felt like I was with family.   Thank you Roscoe for making my time there so awesome, and I truly am looking forward to comming back this year.         
  John Cutlip

This was my first Roscoe's..Holey Shit... I will never miss another one! Hot women, Cold Drinks, and likeminded in one place...Cant get better than this!!

To Roscoe and to all the people who did the work: event staff, cooking & vendors during Roscoe's 2011 event; myself and my friends were there on SAT we say THANK YOU. Next year we are coming back on bikes again, but we will bring a support pickup with us. Just to hold all the gear needed for all of us to stay the whole weekend. Thank you for making Roscoe's an adult only event. We enjoyed the Chili and hanging out with all the good people there. It was a good time and we are looking forward to RCC 2012.
  Gary K
The 26th Chili Challenge is in the books and it just keeps getting better! Roscoe & Crew thank you for the hard work you put into this event! Can't wait for the next one! Like some said they didnt want to leave and I agree! Bring on CHILI WEEK!!!

Roscoe, First let me tell you I've been to many, many bike events over the years and your's ranks with the best, if not "THE BEST".  We had a blast!!!  Thanks for your hospitality! We flew down from Boston to attend your event with Lockdown & LadyHarley,(6 of us this time, more next year). Thanks Again for a GREAT time and see you next year!!
  Stu Wiley
From what I can remember, I had a wonderful time. From the pics I've seen of myself, I had one hell of a time!!

Thank You Roscoe for having us out to Rock-it, Awesome! The Boyz from Use Your Illusion.

Old School Party, The urban rallies are fun but Roscoe's Is out In the woods.
The whole thing Is a party, Not just another event.. 2010 was a blast I will be there this year.

2010 was my first year, my wife and I will not miss another one. been a biker for many years, this is a true party. Thanks guys !!

  Michael Kelly
I hear it's a hell of time. I'm gonna make it this year and I think I'll have a pretty girl body painted up by yours truly or two. I may even see if I can get former Playboy Bunny Kali Mass to come with painted up!  
  Dennis Panzik

Roscoes Chili Challenge should be the standard by which all biker parties are judged!
Best Party in Florida, maybe in the U.S.A. 
We're going, wouldn't miss it! It's an old school biker party. Bring in your booze and party all weekend. Everyone's friendly. No attitudes. Nudity abounds. Bike games, food, music, vendors galore. Oh yeah. Chili! LOL. See you there! We'll be camping!
Can't wait to head over!
By far one of the best all around biker parties there is. No cops, no tourist trap bullshit. Tits & Beer, Chili & Biker Shenanigans, kick ass bands and more. Always a great time! Get your ass down to Lakeland and see for yourself!
  HD Gene

It's almost that time of year again!! Can not wait!!!

My husband and I had a blast... We met alot of fun people. Too bad the real world isnt like this. See ya this year :)
Wouldn't miss it, allready checking flights from Boston, would like to ride the scoot down but have limited time off from work. This will be my 3rd and is on my calender for years to come!
Had a great time last year was my first time going. I plan on keep for years to come

We rode the bikes down again this year from Virginia and once again y'all folks did not disappoint us. It was great and we look forward to next year. Out of all the events and rally's we have attended the flag presentation was by far the best one I have ever seen. Your staff did one heck of a fabulous job on this one!
