Here's a chance to donate Blood and/or Plasma and link your donations to our Chapter (just numbers of donations, not details), using the NZ Blood Service "Team Red" system. 

Whether you already donate or want to give it a go for the first time this is for you.

The NZ Blood app makes keeping track of... - New Zealand Blood Service | Facebook

The Team Red is all set up and Donors can now come and donate under the Auckland Chapter of the Harley Owners Group

When you register you will need to tell the Receptionist that you want your donation to count towards the Team Red Group name.  The idea is to make sure we capture the donation.

Going forward it would be interesting to see how many donations the Chapter can make, and maybe challenge the other Chapters to set up their own 'Team Red'.  There is no end date providing donations continue, just keep those donations coming.

Check out the NZ Blood Service website (www.nzblood.co.nz) to find your local donor centre or mobile collection dates.

Beth Brannen is the Donor Relations Coordinator New Zealand Blood Service - Auckland and is happy to help if you are having trouble or just want her to book you in.  If you make a booking under your own name as normal, remember to mention Auckland Chapter of the Harley Owners Group.  m:+64 27 225 1959  e: Beth.Brannen@nzblood.co.nz

Let's do some good and if you can't donate you may want to look in to being an NZ Blood Service Volunteer.

Cheers, Bugsy (Team Captain)

Kaiaua/Mystery Ride. Hi Shayne. Ride to Kaiaua, 14 riders & 2 pillions. The ride got broken up leaving Mt Wellington due to light. We regrouped at Maraetai & all good from there. We rode the coast road, the weather was awesome. Great company at the Kaiaua Hotel. This pic is from Murray, we forgot to take some at Kaiaua. TEC was Nev (Mcgyver). 

There was a guest rider on a Suzuki, he couldn't find his keys at Kaiaua, looked in the toilets for them, he left them on his bike in the car park. Note from MO: hmm who can we fine?

Note: I have since found out our Suzuki friend name is Bill Gillespie, he requested to join our FB page (which I have rejected) I messenger he the requirements to join HOG Auckland Chapter, but he left this little message I will share with you..and I have invited Bill to ride with us again.

Hey Team, while I don’t have a Harley, ( I ride a Suzuki VZ800 M50), I was invited to ride along with you last weekend and enjoyed the ride and Team Spirit if allowed I would love to ride again with you, Bill Gillespie
