Albany Vintage & Classic Motorcycle Weekend


The format for our premier Club event will be basically the same as last year. We are lucky enought to be using the facilities of the Albany Rifle Club, (just past the turn-off to the Wind-Farm, Frenchmans Bay Road) for the weekend.

It has a clean kitchen, hot showers and toilets facilities available. For camping or any enquiries for the weekend please ring Hill Climb committee members: Garry Blake 0409 294 060, Phil Penny 9844 1374, Bob Rees 9841 5501 or Ronnie Jellesma 9845 1278.

There is also a bar on-site that will be open from 5 p.m. – 12 p.m. Thursday, Friday, Saturday & Sunday evening.

Motorcycle Display on the Saturday morning

Stirling Terrace will be closed for non motorcycle traffic as a safety precaution and as usual the line-up of bikes should be most interesting. We are also striking a metal badge again. Those entering the Hill Climb will get one in their packs. There will not be many extras, and these can be purchased at $10.

Ready to race

Saturday Afternoon Rally

Once again this will be in the form of a Poker Run, entries will only be taken on Stirling Terrace, Saturday morning, there will be no prior entries. The Poker Run is 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 12.20 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.

Help is always needed early on Saturday morning to secure and set up Stirling Terrace, so come along.

Saturday evening 

This year's meal will again be catered for by 3D Catering service. There is a three course menu with soup, home-made hamburgers, hot dogs, salad and dessert. It will be held at the Albany Rifle Club and the cost is $18 per head and bookings are essential. It was a great success last year, so don’t miss out.

Sunday Hillclimb

We have set the cut-off at 1980 and will receive the first 100 entries. One entry per rider, and the committee have the right to refuse any entry and full monies will be refunded.

And - off and
