ALBANY VINTAGE & CLASSIC MOTORCYCLE WEEKEND

SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 7, 2015 and SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 8, 2015

The format for our premier Club event will be basically the same as previous years. We are lucky enough to be again 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. Camping is available at the Rifle Club for $10.00 per head - no need to book. There is also a bar on-site.

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 2015 Hill Climb metal badges available. These can be purchased for $15.

Saturday Afternoon Rally (Poker Run)
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 shortly afterwards, the first bike will be away at the end of the briefing. Entry for the rally is $15 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 $15 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 Dylanís 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 from 6 am on.

Saturday evening 
This yearís meal will again be catered for by 3D Catering service, this will be a 3 course dinner, starting at 6.30 pm. It will be held at the Albany Rifle Club and the cost is $25 per head and bookings are essential. It always a great success, so donít miss out.
