Centenary Update April 14th

Well, it's all over at last, boy was that a long drawn out affair! But all worth it though in the end

Reunion Dinner
140 guests had a whale of a time. Opened with the arrival of a Tiger Moth, to commemorate 101 years since our club organised the first plane to land in Hamilton ever.
The Spit Roast Company put on a fantastic spread, very enjoyable.
One highlight was the arrival of the actual 1924 Douglas motorcycle, as ridden in a multitude of HMCC events over the years, by legend Bill O'Brien. Southwards Motor Museum on the Kapiti Coast kindly loaned it back to us for our celebrations

The Motorcycle Show at the Classics Museum ran 27th March, through to 11th April, featuring around 60 motorcycles representing our 100 year Journey.

The Centenary Book
The book is on its second print run!
A massive 322 pages, great value at $50.

The book is based pretty loosely on a scrapbook format. As much of the club history is before the memories of living members, we have reproduced period reports of various older events. These are actually pretty cool, puts you right in the picture of what it was like back then.
Then lot's of first-hand info on all sorts of events since the 1950's, right up to present.

The SHOP tab is where you go to purchase the Centenary Books.
