We have applied to the City of Yarra to hold the TOY RUN on Sunday, December 11, 2016. The application is getting a positive hearing. The event is registered and insured.
This TOY RUN is not-for-profit and is run by unpaid volunteers. All donations go to the Father Bob Foundation.
This is a great opportunity to showcase all that is good about riding
motorcycles & scooters. We generate positive media and push road safety.
SUNRISE did a great story on the Melbourne and Adelaide TOY RUNs in 2015. Please take a few minutes to watch it (again?).
We do not charge for stalls. Club, industry and department stalls/displays are free but the IRG reserve the right to refuse unsuitable stalls.
The IRG wants to see an annual TOY RUN back in inner 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 and a 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 on Sundays, August 14 & 28. All welcome.
WHEN: 11 am on Sundays, August 14 & 28. Pick one. It should take about an hour.
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.
