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 info@coldkiwi.co.nz

All New Cold Kiwi Site 2018

As announced by Mat On Facebook . Cold Kiwi has an all new site !

No small effort by the club but it looks like we’re able to confirm the details for the 43rd Cold Kiwi 2018.
The site entrance is about 2.5kms west of Waiouru, heading towards Ohakune. It’s not cricket pitch flat but it’s mostly a gentle lean with some flat tops. Free draining pumice soil, a hill climb, short access road and mountain views. Most importantly we don’t believe this site will chop up and turn to mud.

This year trailers will be allowed into the event area . these will be towed in by the club and a fee of $20 will apply . No BYO at all . Any questions email info@coldkiwi.co.nz

Question that has come up for Completed Orders . You can print out a copy of the email you receive to say your payment has been received and Order Status is Completed Order but you can save it in your smart phone and show that at the gate.

Paying by credit card ? Sorry, we don’t have a credit card facility, but you can use your online banking to pay by credit card , be aware that you may be charged as a cash advance . Good news is that there will be Eftpos at the site.
