Woodville Motocross 50th re-union celebration – a really special deal for earlybirds.
The Manawatu-Orion Motorcycle Club has now arranged for those who get in early the best deal in 50 years!
• Saturday 29th January – Coach Tour starting 9.30am from the front of Kingsgate Motor Inn, 110 Fitzherbert Ave. Palmerston North. Travelling to Thomson’s Motorcycle Museum to view some of the world’s rarest motorcycles & memorabilia with morning tea.
From there the group travels past some of our old MX tracks via Taikorea MX Park, Halcombe Rd through Feilding to the Wind Farm on Saddle Rd., where the club will have a guided tour by wind farm manager Colin Farrington then move on to Woodville township for lunch & Woodville Town’s Market Day. After lunch we go to the Woodville MX Circuit Manawatu-Orion MCC hospitality marquee to view races like Vintage MX, Juniors, & Minis before coaching back to the Kingsgate Motor Inn by 4.30pm. Earlybirds will get free MX tickets for the weekend.
• But wait, there’s more — a re-union buffet dinner in the upstairs Steeple Restaurant at 7pm where we need you to bring along your photos, memorabilia, posters & stories. Display board, roaming microphone, DVD & overhead projector facilities will be available.
