Raffles/Games

Listed below are just some of the exclusive games, and entertainment events for High Seas Rally participants. 

                    Our "HIRED GUN" Comedian; Roy Riley

 
For over 43 years, Roy has been entertaining crowds from coast to coast as a stand-up comic, hosting events with audiences from a few into the thousands and has been a huge hit on every High Seas Rally from the start. Since the first High Seas Rally in 2003, Roy has been behind the microphone keeping the laughs and fun rolling at our shows, events and gatherings. When not cruising with HSR, you will find Roy working the crowd emceeing numerous events ranging from auctions to weddings and all things in between.

Roy is a transplanted northerner, having spent his wonder years growing up in upstate New York, and moving to Snowshoe Mountain Ski Resort in West Virginia in the early 1980’s. For the next 25 years, Roy enjoyed the road less traveled on his stage at The Comedy Cellar with a million laughs and countless memories. After all those years high atop Snowshoe Mountain, hours from the mall and grocery store, Roy and the family heard the call of the real world. With his wife, Melissa, and their twin boys, they relocated from the mountains in West Virginia to bluegrass pastures of Kentucky to begin the next big adventure…

                                                       Belly Smacker Contest

 
Always a crowd pleaser. We have turned this event into an even more painful sport. In case you are not familiar with the ancient art of the "belly smacker" here's what it is: Jumping into a pool from a 3 foot tall platform, arms spread, belly first, hitting the water flat and real painful like. This ain't no sissy "belly flop".
 
Extra points awarded for redness of body parts and the oooohing of the crowd. Roy Riley (our M/C Comedian) has brought this to a new level. You could see anything from nuns to judges to Superman capes and after their bodies are good and numb the real fun begins. Oh Yeh! you do it more than once. Don't worry, we have a perfect survival record!
 
 
Custom High Seas Rally Gold Medal for the winner and vendor prizes for the top 3 P.S. the biggest guy rarely wins...it's all about the sound of the splash. Everyone knows the sound of pain. Judging done by specator applause/noise. Over 1,000 spectators every year.
 
Must enter ballot box. The sacrificial contestants...  I mean, lucky contestants, will be drawn at the beginning of the contest. 10 entries drawn.  Last years defending champ gets a free entry if they want to relive the pain again. Women can enter and have won this event in the past. We don't descriminate against pain but the women is not likely to be in the Treasured Chest contest later that week with the upcoming bruises.

                            WORLD'S LARGEST T-SHIRT SWAP

Bring a NEW extra biker T-shirt and join the fun. We no longer have a private Island stop with lots of space but we have a place picked out at Key West that we feel will work just fine. First draw a number from a drum, stand in a circle and display your shirt in front of you. Take a good look around. After everyone has had a moment to check out all the shirts, we begin. Check your number. When your number is called you have 60 seconds to run to the shirt you want, show them your number, grab their shirt and hand them your shirt. Then return back to your spot and display the shirt you just snatched. Likewise, when someone else's number is called they can return the favor. Last numbers called, of course get the last choices. If you have a popular shirt it may change hands several times. You never know what you will end up with till it's over. Generally takes only takes about 30 minutes once we begin.
 

                                                        Best Beard Contest


  FACIAL HAIR MUST BE AT LEAST 6 INCHES LONG TO ENTER. This event also includes mustaches, goatees, etc. Remember, must be over 3 inches long. Not a back or ear hair contest either. Anyone that qualifies can enter. Top 10 contestants are narrowed down by crowd applause (style) to participate in this contest. Then the the women get to decide the winners with the "touchie-feelie" and smell method.  Lots of fun. A lot of unscrupulous characters enter every year. Just a heads up, you need to get a little creative to stand out in this crowd! Special shampoos, fragrances, softeners, styles, even colors can help.

Custom High Seas Rally Gold Medal for the winner and an additional prize for the Longest Beard. No ballot box entry needed. Just be qualified.

The "Treasured Chest" contest goes with our slogan "there's a little pirate in every biker". In this case some of the pirate is a little more exposed with more emphasis placed on a woman’s frontal area, Which is a favorite watched area by us male pirate types... although other areas may also play a part. The wench that collects the most money from our audience in approximately 10 minutes (3 songs) is the "Treasured Chest Contest winner. Bring your paper money and get your eyebrows raised.

The ladies have fun with this every year and so do the lucky men being judged. Judges & contestants are randomly drawn from our ballot box entries 1 day prior to the event. This event involves men with no clothes from the waist up and blindfolded women judges and some baby oil. Of course it requires touching by the female judges-that’s how they judge!
 
Top 3 split vendor prizes worth $523.00 and the WINNER gets the Custom High Seas Rally Gold Medal. Yeh..we're still asking ourselves why we give these men prizes?? They should be paying to get in this contest! As an extra bonus in 2013 it rained during this contest and became a wet t-shirt contest for the female judges.  I didn't plan that, I swear.

 Ladies that want to be judges..there's a ballot box for you too!
