We as a Club are not getting involved in this event. However there may be Club or Forum members that have Classic Bikes that they may want to display at the occasion. In fact they are not only looking for "classics" but other "motor cycles" as well. Should you be keen to take part please contact the organisers directly 2010 CLASSIC CAR AND BIKE SHOW 23 - 24 January 2010 Celebrating 10 years of classics I would like to take this opportunity to formally invite BMW Motorcycle Club to participate in the 2010 Classic Car and Bike Show. As before, the show will be held at Timour Hall Villa in Plumstead. On Saturday 23 January 2010, the International Police Association will celebrate “10 Years of Classics” when the 10th Annual Classic Car & Bike Show opens its gates to the public. Over the past 10 years, we have seen a tremendous growth in numbers of both exhibitors and attendees. There have also been some changes to the format, with the first two day exhibition held in 2007 with great success. A further change has been made following overwhelming feedback from members of the public and for the first time since the event began in January 2000, the ticket price has been increased from R10 to R20 per person. As an International Non-Profit organisation, it is important for the IPA to make a difference in our local community and this show has provided an opportunity to not only educate and entertain, but also to effect real changes in people’s lives. Over the years, this event has raised more than R80 000 for various charities, with donations totaling more R14 500 handed over in 2009 alone. It is our sincere hope that the 10 Year Anniversary Show will not only be bigger and better, but that the funds raised will enable us to reach far more people than ever before. Saturday 23 January: “Modern / Future Classics” Incl New Cars, Rare Cars, Hotrods, Streetrods, Customised vehicles, bikes, etc, Sunday 24 January: “Classics” The usual mix of old, rare and beautiful classics Limitation on Space As you know, the venue is not unlimited and in the interests of providing a service to the members of the public who attend, we have to allow some space on the property for parking. However, we intend to see what we can do to provide additional public parking in the area for 2010. Updates will be posted on the website. www.classiccarandbikeshow.co.za Exhibiting Hours As usual, the show runs from 10am – 4pm and these times will be advertised through the media. In order to try and make it slightly easier to get all the exhibitors in and parked, the gates open at 6am. We require ALL participating vehicles to be in and parked by 9am at the latest. This is in order to be ready when the gates open to the public and to avoid any safety issues with moving vehicles once members of the public are walking around. As the show does not end until 4pm, please could all exhibitors remain on site until 4pm to ensure the maximum benefit to the public. If you cannot commit to these hours, please do not put your name down to exhibit. Despite my pleas every year for exhibitors to please show consideration for each other, the organisers and the members of the public who attend the event, we had a problem again this year (2009) with a large number of exhibitors leaving early or not attending at all (after reserving space for vehicles), as well as clubs who booked space for 4 vehicles and arrived with 6. This causes a logistical nightmare and problems with crowding to other exhibitors. Again, please do not commit to exhibiting if you aren’t prepared to join us for the day. Bonnets Up & Vehicle Information In the case of vehicles, please could you display your engine on the day if possible, as this is always something which fascinates members of the public. I believe that there is some concern regarding theft of parts, but this is unlikely to happen. In the interests of security, please ensure that your vehicle is locked if it is going to be unattended. Please could you display some basic information about your car / bike / machine somewhere on the vehicle / machine – model, year, trivia, etc – as this also helps to enhance the experience. It is the responsibility of the individual or club to print and provide this information. Stalls & Signage Although clubs may not sell refreshments, if any of you would like to sell merchandise relating to your own club, please feel free to do so. You may set up within your own display area. Also, if your club has any banners / signs, please bring these with you. This will help to identify your club to members of the public. Refreshments Just like last year, there will of course be a selection of food and soft drinks for sale on the day as well as a cash bar and beer garden. As before, under the terms of our liquor license, no additional alcohol (of any kind) may be brought onto the property. This includes bottles of wine, alco-pops, etc. The bar stocks a range of wines, which will be available for sale by the bottle. Entry Costs / Tickets Only one (1) driver and one (1) passenger per vehicle will be allowed free entry on the day. All other friends, family and passengers will be required to pay the R20 entry fee per person. Many of the exhibiting clubs / individuals make a voluntary financial donation in light of the fact that this is a charity fundraiser. We are still trying to decide on a method for identifying genuine exhibitors on the day. You will be notified when a decision is reached. For members of the public and those wishing to support both days, tickets will be R20 per person per day (ie R40 for both days). A “weekend pass” purchased on the Saturday will be only R30 for both days. Please RSVP as soon as you are able. I need to know the number of vehicles attending as soon as possible in order to facilitate our planning regarding layout, health and safety. If you have any queries, please feel free to contact me. I look forward to hearing from you. Best, Jo Huysamen 082 518 3932 Event Co-ordinator IPA Committee
