PostSubject: Grease Monkey Bike Show in April   Wed Feb 13, 2013 9:49 am

Just been talking to someone wanting to host a bike show at Takanini in April, probably on the 13th and 14th. He's got a big yard just off the motorway is is planning on stalls and food etc and the profits will be going to support the local burns unit. Looks like a chance to run our own sort of bike show before winter sets in.
If anyone wants to help out, this is just at the early stages so we need to get the word out and drum up some interest and also get some ideas on how we would run it.
Anybody interested?

I'm going to have a lookk at the site on Sunday. There's an old truck that can be used as a stage and a bus for a chill out area. I'm thinking we need a pre/launch party and a post party. Get sme bikes out and shake the town up a bit.
I can't use Grinderfest again so we need a new name and theme and a poster. Any ideas?

Keith
Not sure what happened to the Motat show. I had put out a call for bikes but didn't get any response so I had to go back to Motat and let them know that I couldn't help.
That was a bit dissapointing.
Jon
Thanks for that. I'll give you a shout after Sunday when I have talked to teh guy about the site.

Ok so this isn't going to be our show now. We'll have another think about how that one runs but there will still be a show in April. Currently it is being organised by Jody but that is likely to change. I'll post more details as they are sent to me but basically its still going to be custom builders bike show in South Auckland with bands and food. It will be open to the public and proceeds will go to the Auckland Burns Unit which is a good cause.
The newly formed Auckland Bandidos are the main sponsor but thinking back to when I came to NZ, the HA used to run some very successful shows at the old Oriental Markets, where Britomart is now. They were fun and had some very cool bikes so no real reason why this one can't work either. Like I said, Grease Monkeys or myself are not involved with organising or running the show but still worth checking out. Link to the current poster below.
