Bulli – a great suc­cess

Old Bike Australasia - - CLASSIC COB -

Suc­cess is not a gift but a stan­dard that is achieved by hard work and care­ful plan­ning by com­pe­tent peo­ple. The AMCA of Aus­tralia week­end at Bulli was what it is be­cause of the way in which it is con­ducted. At the helm is Tony Blain as Chair­man of the Board of Di­rec­tors. Other mem­bers of the board are Mick John­son, An­thony Gul­lick, Phil Ford­ham, John Hagy and Howard Collins. Each of these per­sons has a spe­cific func­tion and role to su­per­vise and mon­i­tor. This in­cludes, swap meet, camp­ing, traf­fic man­age­ment, auc­tion, Face­book, web site, gen­eral pro­mo­tion and le­gal is­sues. This re­minded me of those roles un­der­taken by mem­bers of the Apex Club in a fea­ture I did for OBA about the con­struc­tion of the Hil­lview Cir­cuit at Muswellbro­ok. Last year at­ten­dance was just on 3,000 but I am told that this year it was 4,800 with vis­i­tors from both North Queens­land and New Zea­land. These or­gan­is­ers have con­tin­ued to stress the point that this event is not just for ma­chines of USA ori­gin but all makes and mod­els as long as they are at least 35 years and older, no mat­ter where they were man­u­fac­tured. My view is that this has quickly be­come a ma­jor mo­tor­cy­cle event in Aus­trala­sia and will grow even big­ger still.

See you next is­sue, Pete
