SCMA Annual Awards and Appreciation Banquet

In March of every year, SCMA honors those riders that successfully achieve significant levels of riding achievement and those volunteers who have worked in a capacity of responsibility within the Association.
We conduct this honor at a dinner in a local Southern California hotel. During this dinner we present appreciation awards to our volunteers, Traveler’s Awards for monthly rides, plaques to finishers of a CA Adventures Series Tour, Triple Crown, Premier 5, and Grand Slam Award presented to riders meeting those challenging requirements, and recognition of a Legacy Member for long service and significant contribution to SCMA.

This is NOT a formal affair….after all, we’re just a bunch of motorcycling guys and gals that like to ride long distances. But we do enjoy an evening of camaraderie starting with a no-host social hour and an evening dinner.

Appreciation Award

Appreciation awards are presented to our volunteers in recognition of the work they do as Board Members, Ride Chairs, Directors, and supporters. Their hard work and commitment to the SCMA is what keeps our Association moving forward. We greatly appreciate all that they do for us.

Triple Crown Award

The Triple Crown award is presented to riders that, in a single calendar year, complete three of the five Premier Events (USA Four Corners Tour, the SCMA Three Flags Classic, Best 15 US Roads Challenge, and either the California Parks Adventure or the California Mission Tour). This award is a custom trophy attesting to their accomplishment. Only 10 or so riders meet this accomplishment each year.

Premier 5 Award

The Premier 5 award is presented to riders that, in a single calendar year, complete all five Premier Events (USA Four Corners Tour, the SCMA Three Flags Classic, Best 15 US Roads Challenge, the California Parks Adventure, and the California Mission Tour). This award is a custom trophy attesting to their accomplishment of riding about 25,000 miles to complete these events in a calendar year.  Only 5 or less riders meet this accomplishment each year.

Grand Slam Award

The Grand Slam award is presented to riders that, in a single calendar year, complete all five Premier Events (USA Four Corners Tour, the SCMA Three Flags Classic, Best 15 US Roads Challenge, the California Parks Adventure, and the California Mission Tour) AND complete at least 13 of the monthly Traveler’s Awards rides. This award is a custom trophy attesting to their accomplishment of riding about 30,000 miles to complete these events in a calendar year.  

Less than 3 riders meet this accomplishment each year.

Attaining the level of riding to earn one of the above awards is a tough and unique standard that is accomplished by tough and unique riders. Are you ready for the challenge?

Legacy Award

The Legacy Award is a perpetual Trophy recognizing a member who has not only been a long time member but also for long service and significant contribution to SCMA. Past recipients of this prestigious honor have held various position on the Board of Directors, and/or chaired various Premier Events more than once. Recipients of this award have their name plate on the trophy and receive an all weather jacket embroidered with the SCMA Logo and the words “Legacy Member”.

Join us for a fun evening, a delicious meal, and to honor those receiving their awards.
