We have applied to the City of Yarra to hold the TOY RUN for Father Bob at Victoria Park in Abbotsford, an inner Melbourne suburb on Sunday, December 11, 2016.
The event is registered and insured. This TOY RUN is not for profit and run 100% by unpaid volunteers. All donations go to the Father Bob Foundation.
It is a great opportunity to showcase all that is good about riding motorcycles & scooters. We generate positive media and push road safety.
We do not charge for stalls. Industry and department stalls/displays are free but the IRG reserve the right to refuse unsuitable stalls.
We'd like to see the TOY RUN back in Melbourne with a permanent home to ensure that we need a committee to organise the event. We need people to organise the stage, PA and band, trade stands, Marshals, First Aiders, police/VicRoads liasson, media/promotions officer, a driver for the lead vehicle and so on.
So I'm inviting members who can help organise the TOY RUN or who can help on the day (Sunday, December 11, 2016) or who are just interested, to meet me at Victoria Park in August.
WHEN: 11 am on a Sunday in August the 7th, 14th, 21st, and 28th. I favour the 14th. Please email me which date suits you best. firstname.lastname@example.org We'll pick the date when most can attend.
2 for August 14. 1 for August 21. 1 for august 28.
WHERE: The corner of Lulie & Turner Streets in Abbotsford. Melway map 44, reference E4. If the weather is crook we can sit under cover in the grand stand.
