Sturgis Venue Sold

Gary Lippold, who owned and managed the Glencoe Camp Resort and the Rock’n The Rally concert venue in Sturgis, S.D., has sold the property.

The property, which sees most of its visitors during the massive Sturgis Motorcycle Rally each year, was sold for $8,595,000 to Devorah Lopez of hacienda Heights, Calif., according to the Black Hills Pioneer.

The paper cited a three-page document filed at the Meade County Courthouse. Sean Clark is expected to continue running the campground and outdoor stage.

The Web site for the campground promises a full bar, two stages and all kinds of biker amenities like pool tables and barmaids.

The Rock’n The Rally stage was the site of some controversy at last year’s event. Larry the Cable Guy pulled out of his Aug. 5 support slot because the promoter did not have the funds to cover the performance, manager J.P. Williams told Pollstar.
