8 weeks out from the 2017 Kenda Rally and all the hard work and preparation that goes into an event of this size is all starting to come together. Entries are rolling in and the direct deposit feature on the admcc website is doing its thing.
On our entry forms, both electronic and paper, there is a provision for you to fill in the rego number of your bike. This year you MUST fill it in, as with the new Vic roads policy of paperless registration labels, we must check every registration online to ensure that there are no unregistered bikes in the event. There will be no exceptions to this, so if you don't know what your mates rego number is, find out or don't enter him or her. Same thing goes for unregistered or nearly unregistered bikes.
No unregistered motorcycle will start the 2017 Kenda rally
Some of our entrants have asked for details on where they can stay the night before the rally and we suggest you check out our accommodation list (below) for Motel and Caravan parks for those that want to make a weekend of it.
There is no camping at the start/finish site.
The start/finish area at the Kenda has limited parking like the Sawmill rally, so we are asking entrants to car pool if possible to enable our car park attendants to fit you all in close to the start/finish area.
When you arrive on Sunday morning, follow the directions of our friendly traffic directors and park where directed.
For those of you that want to have a ride around on the Saturday before the event, please keep away from the rally area as we will be setting the course, and the overlapping loops and arrows will have you confused and lost easily - not to mention the head on accident factor. Unlike a lot of other events, the ADMCC welcome and encourage riders to come back after the ride and explore the areas many tracks and trails - just give us some room on the Saturday to make the event as well marked as we can!
The Alexandra District MCC values it's family friendly identity and this year, in conjunction with the Police Traffic operations group and Murrundindi shire, we have decided to make the event an alcohol free zone. Please leave your cans and stubbies behind and celebrate finishing the event once you get home.
We are now on facebook. Like us on facebook and you can receive updated information and pre-ride tips on you facebook page.
Again, like last year, we are not mailing out return forms and numbers to entrants. We will upload an information link on our website 2 weeks before the event, with a map to the start area and other instructions to help you make the most of the great day. Rider numbers will be issued on the day at scrutineering.
If you have any other questions, please email us off the website.
