Cold Kiwi 2018 Thanks to the people who made it happen

On behalf of the Ruapehu Motorcycle Club, we would like to sincerely thank the following people, as without their help, the Cold Kiwi 2018 would not have happened:

Special thanks to The Christian Riders who helped out running the gate and numerous other tasks, they also supplied the bike hoist for the burnout. Another big thanks goes out to Drury Motorcycles, Des and his team did the tyre changes for the burnout – cheers guys/gals.

The amount of tome, effort and resources put in by these guys has been huge, which we are all grateful for – Thank You!

About the New Site . Please read

Hi everyone, just a couple of friendly reminders:

As per usual there is a firm rule of NO B.Y.O. … Why you may ask? This is because it breaches our liquor license. I’m sure none of you would want to be the reason there’s no refreshments at the Cold Kiwi! Confiscations apply. Please support the RMCC by buying at the bar and help keep the rally going!

On another note, the land the rally is held on is once again a private farm, with a huge area of it being kindly lent to us for the weekend.
Under NO circumstances are you to enter the property outside of rally times. Also please stay within the boundaries laid out by the club.
We are very greatful to the Frew family for allowing the Cold Kiwi to be held on their land and would appreciate your respect in this matter.
The RMCC hopes you have a safe and happy ride to and from the rally.
See ya there, enjoy!
Thank you!

Burnout Pad at Cold Kiwi

Posted by Jeannette Weedon on Facebook

“Just in case you were worried your bike wouldn’t fit on our new and improved burn out pad”

7×7 !! Yes folks… 7meters x 7meters for you to smoke up. Who will be first?!

This year’s burnout will cost you a donation. How much? Up to you. How much do you appreciate the hard work that’s gone into the site? You will have to pay for tubes if needed.

If someone would like to donate/loan a bike hoist to make the tyre changing job a bit easier it would be much appreciated!! Please contact Dion Weedon email

Saturday night I can happily tell you we will have the return of Bullfrog Rata with his full band plus Janine Knap and will include an extra Harmonica player. This should be a HUGE night.
