available. 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. There will also be 2014 Hill Climb metal badges available, these can be purchased for $15.

The Poker Run is open to any person with a road-licensed
motorcycle and a current license to ride. Pillions may also
