Midweek News - 19 Dec

19th December 2018
Merry Christmas and Ride Safely!!!

Hi Everyone

Countdown on to the Christmas break! – and the Chapter Committee extends a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all you as members!

This is the final midweek news for 2018 – Mid week news will start again on Wednesday 23rd January

Rides coming up for your diary

Over the summer break  (and mid-week news break)  all your events and ride info will be kept up to date on the AK HOG Website calendar page which is identical info shown on the Member Jungle APP. 

  • Due to the New Years break in January we will not be hosting a Swashbucklers event – and like wise in February as this falls on Waitangi Day.


Heads up for the first few rides in January for your diary…


From the Director: Crads advises-

A HOG Regional Event is confirmed at Rotorua over Labour Weekend 2019.

The dates and brief agenda are as follows:


1. Saturday 26/10/19 - ride down, afternoon chapter games and evening function

2. Sunday 27/10/19 - thunder ride and other activities 

3. Monday 28/10/19 - ride home


But the critical aspect is accommodation - Rotorua is already reasonably heavily booked for this weekend.


So a heads up - if you are thinking of going to what will be an awesome event (I'm on the organising committee) then get in and book something NOW!

  • Most of the activity will be between the Energy Events Centre and the Lakefront so very central. 


Hints to get notifications on the new member jungle app  

  1. In your MJ APP – go to settings and ensure you have your notifications clicked to “Green” so you get notified

  1. VERY IMPORTANT – to get events, mid-week news notifications and ride cancellations ….

Make sure in the notifications settings on your actual phone - that under the notifications from APPs- that you have MJ clicked to notify.


  1. Refresh your MJ APP Screen regularly –
  • Most people stay logged in on their MJ APP – which is great…
  • Let’s say ou have had your events page open in the app for some days – when you go to it next  don’t forget  to run your finger down the screen on any area of white space and it will refresh your screen with any new things we have posted – you will see the little refresh circle update the page.

(*Thanks for that one Neville )
