It's been a week since Motorcycle Madness took over Drumheller and organizers are already looking forward to next year.
 
Connie Tremblay said Saturday turned out really well despite a slow start because of the weather.
 
"It was really cold to begin with; people didn't start showing up until I would say about 9:00, 9:30," she recalled. "People were really slow to get going, but we had a lot of fun. We had our first scavenger hunt, which was very successful; people absolutely loved it."
 
"We kind of just went all over the place; they had to get pictures of different things at different places," she explained. "One person actually got themselves handcuffed and in the back of a police car for points."
 
While most of the Motorcycle Madness events were held in Wayne, Tremblay said they got out and interacted with the community more this year, and she's looking forward to more of the same in 2019.
 
"We're getting a lot more involvement from further out," Tremblay added. "The people that just left our place, one couple was from Bonnyville and the other one was from Lloydminster; people come from quite a ways for it."
 
Receipts from the weekend are still being added up. Any proceeds will go to the Drumheller and District Humane Society.
