Western Springs Speedway Driver Parade Saturday 9th February 2019

The Promotors of Western Springs Speedway have again invited the HOG Chapter to Parade the drivers out for the Barry Butterworth Memorial Feature.

This is one of the premier races for the season, and  we will need 21 x bikes able to take a driver pillion around the track. Those coming will be given 2 x free admission tickets per bike to the meeting as well.

The bikes will be on display during the meeting inside the main gate.

Greg Joynt will lead the Saturday ride finishing at McDonalds Pt Chev. We can then depart to the stadium and enter as one group. You can do both the afternoon ride and the meeting, or just meet us at Maccas for the Springs event. We do have a bit of time but Greg will need indications of numbers as we must provide ALL 21 bikes.

Please email Greg Joynt on: greg.joynt@xtra.co.nz or text him on 021 578 275 So he can start building a list. With the Springs closing this may well be the last opportunity to do this.




Saturday 24th November  - MDN Christmas Party

As our November chapter event, we would like as many as possible to join Santa on this annual event which brings so much joy to so many kids and their families.


We are invited to share a Christmas lunch with over 60 families, before Santa provides a gift to all the kids. Unfortunately the date for registering for lunch has passed, but you're still welcome to attend - And for all those who participate, can you please bring a wrapped kids present marked with Male/Female, and the approx. age group – which Santa will love to distribute after lunch.
