There is also a bar on-site that will be open from 5 p.m. – 12 p.m.

The weekend will start with the parade on the
30th October; this street parade has become very popular very quickly
with the locals. Riders are asked to meet at the Old Gaol from 3.30 pm
to move off under escort at 4 p.m. RadioWest will head the parade, as
it leaves Stirling Terrace west and turns into York Street, riders will
ride up the street and around the Monument and down the street
returning to the old Goal.
Stirling Terrace will be
non-motorcycle traffic as a safety precaution and as usual the line-up
of bikes should be most interesting. This year will see the addition of
many veteran bikes from all over Australia. We are also striking a
metal badge again. Those booking for the weekend will get one in their
packs. There will not be many extras, these can be purchased at $10.
Once again this will be in the form of a Poker
Run, suitable for all motorcycles, no matter what size or age. There
will be short and long courses to suit your bike. Entries will close at
11.45 am and the briefing will take place in Stirling Terrace at 12.30
pm. The first bike will be away shortly afterwards. Entry for the rally
is $10 per person which entitles you to a poker hand and afternoon tea.
The Poker Run is open to any person with a road licensed motorcycle and
a current license to ride. Pillions may also enter, cost is also $10
and this entitles you to a poker hand and afternoon tea. This year the
rally will finish at the Albany Rifle Club with afternoon tea again
donated by Dylan’s on the Terrace. Thanks Morris and Gwen.
This year's barbecue will be catered for by 3D
Catering service, the menu will satisfy everyone. It will be held at
the Albany Rifle Club and the cost is $16 per head and bookings are
This Hillclimb is open to club members and
members of other kindred clubs with suitable motorcycles. We have set
the cut off at 1980 and will receive the first 100 entries. One entry

Sunday morning is appreciated, breakfast will be available on the hill
