In the meantime the 20 or so members of the Ruapehu Motor Cycle Club are working on getting it all set up for this year . The club relies on help from many others as well .So far the firewood is sorted and the bonfire getting close . Paper work to get the liqour licence is underway too. The grass in the paddock is well established and firm underfoot.
We have sponsors who are very generous and supply the prizes for events etc . Outstanding contribution is the brand new Nolan helmet prize for the Hill Climb Dash. Also to mention the Horopito locals who man the rail-crossing when the trains are running. Additionally there is there security team who patrol the Rally Site all night to make sure you are all safe and sound, along with medics that are on duty 24/7 with band-aids and the like. Not to mention the guys who bought the 4-wheelers to help with the gate transfers . The list goes on.
The Cold Kiwi Website has found a new home, courtesy of Full Steam Ahead. Along with the move is a new online shop, due for launch this month. Check back for regular updates!
