A reminder to Tweed Heads Motorcycle Enthusiasts Club members that your membership includes membership to Kirra Sports Club.
If you are a new member, or otherwise, and are yet to receive your Kirra Sports Club Membership Card then visit the Club and see if it is on hand. If not contact Donna and the situation will be resolved. Contact information in the About Us page.
Kirra Sports Club generously supports the Club and your support in return is appreciated. Our weekly Thursday night raffles are held at Kirra Sports Club at 7:30 pm which includes a THMCEC Members draw. You have to be there to be in it and win it.
The Kirra Sports Club 250 Club draw is currently at $12,000. This could come in handy for a Bike upgrade or a nice Winter escape. Does Phuket or a trip to the snow interest you?
Details on current Kirra Sports Club major promotions can be found here.
A reminder that the Club’s nest Run is the “Vintage Misty Mountain Run” to be held this Sunday, 13th April 2014.
The Run departs from Kirra Sports Club at 10 am sharp. Daylight Savings is over in NSW so it’s 10 am both NSW and Queensland time. Queenslanders can sleep in an hour late or just turn up at 9 am and you’ll be sure to be there before 10 am. Harry gets impatient if we don’t leave spot on time so stragglers or sleep-ins might find themselves left out.
Only a few know exactly where Misty Mountain is so it will be follow the leader. You can expect there will be a mountain somewhere and maybe some mist.
Forecast for Sunday has been improving day by day as Sunday approaches. Current forecast is a possible late thunderstorm (we’ll be the ones making the most thunder), 27 deg maximum with light SSE-SE winds at 10 – 15 km/h. A nice little fresh breeze to cool us down.
This might be a rather long run so be advised to fill up before you get to Kirra and you might also need to top up at one of our stops on the way.
We’ve been lucky that our last 2 Runs have coincided with birthdays and we’ve had Pavlova and Cake. We want more cake! So, if someone has a birthday next Sunday let the cake person know (whoever the cake person is). If you can’t find the cake person then bring some along and share it around. We don’t do latte so you can’t be accused of being a Cafe Racer.
If no birthdays are found on Sunday then Jodi has volunteered to do her 27th. This may or may not have happened but since the core of a club is its volunteers her sacrifice is welcomed. It’s all about cake!
With our next local Run not until June 29 this is the Run you want to be on. So beat the winter chill, bring out your Bike and come along and join us.
Cost is $5 for members and $10 for non-members. This includes lunch and covers the cost of the supplied back-up trailer. Maybe, if we are lucky, we’ll also have cake.
This looks like a nice cake
After the success of the last Dinner Run the Club will be holding a Members Only Dinner Run on Wednesday, 9th April 2014.
The Run departs from Kirra Sports Club at 6:30 pm. Cost for dinner is $15. Drinks extra.
Destination will be Chinderah. A great opportunity to enjoy great company and a great meal.
So, make sure your lights work and rock along and join us. Fuel up before just in case we replicate our last Dinner Run and take a diversion. You’ll be sure to to arrive with a hunger.
Those with open face helmets might like to cover up or keep their mouths closed to avoid an entree of bugs. Unless that is your thing of course.
An Invitation has been brought forward to ride to the Queensland Round of the Australian Superbike Championship to be held on the 6th April, 2014 and support the Danny Green’s Cowards Punch Initiative.
For each rider who rides to this round a donation of $5 will be made to the Danny Green’s Cowards Punch Initiative. The initiative helps to implement a number of awareness raising initiatives in the hope of stamping out the cowardice act of gratuitous violence.
Each rider who rides to this round will be eligible to participate in “A Champions Lap” of the track.
Get behind this great cause and ride your bike and enjoy a great day of racing at the same time.
