International (formerly Barry Sheene) Festival Of Speed - 23 to 26 March 2017

Post  Chook on Thu 13 Oct 2016, 7:30 am

First topic message reminder :

Hammy tossed up the idea a while back in the National Meet thread, at the time I was keen to go back to the WSBK's after last years great meet. It looks like that's not going to happen now, anyone else  interested in going to this?
Anyone from Tas/Vic/SA/Southern or Western NSW could meet up and ride together for a day or 2 on the way there, I'd get to Hay or Echuca comfortably the 1st night.

We're going to be big improvers in 2017 but I doubt that big, give your ticket to another HDC supporter and watch it on TV in Sydney with us Wink

I've paid the lot, don't worry until we know total numbers, if there's more it will cost more but the price per person will drop a fair bit

*BUMP*

12 weeks out from meeting up with madmax enroute to Sydney and travelling in via Bathurst the next day

3 day pass only $60, thursday practice day is free entry

Only 2 in the house so far (still only $59 p/n ea), room for up to 5 in the main house and another 4 in a granny flat), 3 or more in the house will get the cost down to under $40 p/n

Another Bump

There's been about 9 or 10 new members join since my last post so I thought I'd give this another bump to see if I can shake up some interest, good chance to meet a few forumites in person and very cheap entry + cheep accommodation with plenty of parking space, beds etc

Slippery has shown some interest, I've put you down as a tentative, if it doesn't work out mm and I will still have to try and catch up on the way through Bathurst on the 22nd

Here's the link to the house details
