Here goes another novel… *eye roll* lol

What a weekend that was! 
I hope you all made it home safely and enjoyed that sunshine on the way. 
On behalf of the Ruapehu Motorcycle Club I’d like to thank every single one of you that turned up and we really hope to see you all again next year. Without you crazy people we couldn’t keep going. Cheers!
No major incidents reported this year although one of our club helpers had a little too much fun on a quad and scored himself an ambulance ride Friday night…. hope you’re doing well Conky.

This year both bands were asked (yelled at 🤣) for an encore so I think it’s safe to say they were a hit. Thank you to The Blistered Fingers and Greenfloor for braving the cold and entertaining the crowd!

Welcoming you through the farm gate was an “AWESOMESAUCE” crew from the Christian Motorcyclists Association NZ. 
You were such a big help to the RMCC and we appreciate you all!!! Thank you!!!

A message from my husband RMCC President Dion Weedon ~ 
To ALL club members and the helpers they bring along THANK YOU!! Each and everyone of you have important rolls and without you guys the Cold Kiwi would be non existent. Cheers to Club Captain Mat Northway for taking on the task of being our M.C. this year, you done an awesome job.
Special mentions- James Blincoe (that young fella that gets around faster than a blue arse fly….possibly almost as annoying as one too?! Haha we love ya boy 🤣) … if only the rest of us could borrow a bit of your energy we’d be doing well. Big ups for your extra hard work this weekend and also thank you to ‘Animal’ for your efforts at our last few working bees as well as this year’s rally, you really are an Animal 🤣🤣. 
Mark Blincoe our resident sparkie who works all hours putting up and taking down lighting, sound and everything inbetween, cheers mate.
Last but definitely not least I need to say and extra big Thank you to Clive Bentley. 
He does a hell of a lot more work behind the scenes than anyone realises and I hope he know’s how much we appreciate the effort that he puts into the club.

Bring on the 45th Cold Kiwi!


Thanks to those that came up and introduced yourselves, it was great to meet new people and put some names to faces!

Loving seeing all the photos from this year….ESPECIALLY that blue rav getting a new paint job. When it got stuck Duncan said “it’s alright, James is getting the digger, he’ll get me out, he’s a good boy”. I asked him if he was really really sure about that… because I know what James is like when under the influence of Dion… who may or may not have🤔🤔🤫🤭🤭 instigated the rav burial. The rav survived although it’s windscreen didn’t but it gave us all the best laugh of the weekend!

Cheers everyone, I hope you’re coming back next year!!64Mat Northway, Barney Inwood and 62 others11 Comments2 SharesLikeShow more reactionsCommentShare
