    • Kilcunda Hotel

    Z Owners Sunday Club Ride (For Woody) 22nd October 2017.

    Our October club ride was organised by "Popeye" to catch up with our not so well member "Woody" who turned up despite his desperate situation, for a free lunch on the club ! The day looked wet to start and didn't get much better for most of the day, this didn't deter at least 9 riders who braved the conditions for the trip to Kilcunda Hotel. Starting off with half the crew we left Knoxfield to pick up Popeye and the other half at Longwarry servo. The ride took in some spectacular scenery despite the conditions with one member having a slight off on a tricky road. We won't mention who but green bike between 899cc and 901cc and was in excellent condition (soon to be fully fixed). Woody was rapt to see us and was accompanied by his son and brother with strict orders from medical staff to return to hospital by sunset ? I don't think he could of got any sicker so I don't see what they would of done if he hadn't returned on time. To cut a long story short it was great to see Woody happy for the day, forcing down a free lunch weather he needed it or not and a chance to see old friends. Woody passed away two days later with his family thanking the club for making one of his last days special.

    Well done to all.

    • Traralgon

    Vale Anthony "Woody" Woodberry 11/10/1957 - 24/10/2017

    Fantastic effort by club members to again turn up in wet conditions and over long distances to see off our late club member at Traralgon on 1st November 2017. Most people traveled a fair distance to attend from Western suburbs of Melbourne and Northern Victoria (Wangaratta). We received a big thank you from Woody's family and made the escort formation comforting and special for the family. For those who attended the club will be supplying a memorial patch free of charge with further patches available to purchase from our merchandise site soon. The day had to start early with members meeting at Knoxfield and picking up some half way to attend on time. Also some members attending in cars from places afar. Unusually for Z Owners we were all on time making it a stress free ride. The after drinks were held at the Traralgon tennis club as they had an appropriate bar, giving members and family time to catch up. One funny situation was whilst waiting for the funeral to start the funeral director seemed to be a bit worried about getting 30 or so loud motorcyclist to move in and sit down. He was told that if he didn't make a move and get things started we would probably keep talking until dark. Again fantastic effort by our club and well done to those who attended.

    Thanks from Woody's family.

    Z ONLY SO "PISS OFF" NOVEMBER CLUB RIDE

    Yet again it F%#^*$g rained. The Z Owners have officially been contacted by the Bureau of Meteorology as a national drought breaking service for remote communities in need of rainfall. Communities will be required to organise an official motorcycle event, invite the "Z Owners" club then sit back and watch those dams fill. If this keeps up I might have to turn up on a jet-ski rather than the bike. Apart from this slight hint of whinging the day went exceptionally well with a good spread of members from afar. We had recently new member "ED" from Bunker Hill which is past Ballarat, complete a 725km round trip on his 900 to take part in the day. As well as "BOS" brother of Simmo who rode from Bairnsdale . Ride captain "Dezi" organised a great back road trek through the hills of Deziville terminating at the pub in Korumburra for lunch. It was a bit passive this year due to the dampness of the roads but we all still had a good time. Of course there was one member who decided to test the one and only rule about what bike you can ride. He was told by our ride captain Dezi in plain English to PISS OFF ! in which he did.

    See you next year !

    Note: Patches for those who participated will be available shortly.

    CURRENT Z OWNERS CLUB MEETING VENUE TO BE DEMOLISHED !!

    "Yes that's correct" Z Owners have proven yet again if you want your business to close down, just have us attend for our monthly club meetings. We are now considering going into the demolition business as we seem to have no problem with wrecking things or having them close down. Unfortunately our current meeting place "Leinster Arms Hotel" lease has run out and will be be re-developed into a multi story unit block later this year. This is going to be done despite the business going successfully, and without a word of protest from East West Tunnel lobby group about the loss of a historic building in the area. As a conspiracy theory without any proof, could interested parties in the hotel re-development group, been part of the anti East West Tunnel group ?

     We are sorry to leave the Leinster Arms Hotel as the staff have been very accommodating and friendly providing a perfect venue for our club.

    ....................................................................................................


    NEW VENUE AS OF 17th JULY 2018. COMMERCIAL HOTEL 344 NICHOLSON STREET FITZROY.

    After much consumption of alcohol at many venues, we have managed to find a great hotel that should fit our needs and only 2 minutes from our current location. The venue offers good parking facilities with plenty of room on footpath for sensible bike parking. We have warned the owner of our history in closing venues, but he as assured us that he has an 8 year license on the premises. Bar meals are very reasonably priced with a variety of tap beers available. The beer garden is big enough for an outdoor meeting in the summer. So please attend our first meeting at our new venue.

    2018 AMCA NATIONAL MEET

    25TH & 26TH AUGUST 2018

    DON’T MISS THIS OPPORTUNITY

    AMCA JUDGING ENTRIES CLOSING 30TH JUNE.

    AMCA Judging entries are now open and will close on the 30th of June for the 2018 National Meet.

    AMCA JUDGING PROGRAM

    With the 2018 AMCA Australia National Meet fast approaching members should consider entering their motorcycle/s into the Judging Program.  There are three basic criteria to be met to enter a motorcycle in the AMCA Judging program.

    1. You must be an AMCA member in good standing, or in other words, a current financial member.
    2. Your motorcycle must be 35 years of age or older.  At the time of writing includes machines manufactured up to including 1983.
    3. You must be able to start your motorcycle for inspection by a designated judge at the meet.

    HOW THE AMCA JUDGING SYSTEM WORKS

    Unlike many judging programs the AMCA program is relatively simple.  Machines are not judged against each other, rather each motorcycle is judged on its merit against one standard.  That standard is how the motorcycle would have looked the day it left the factory.

    Members link to the Judging Rules. See the AMCA Australia “LINKS’ page.

    AMCA AUSTRALIA MEET

    We look forward to welcoming our good friend, the AMCA Chief Judge; Mr. Don DZURICK, back for the 2108 Australian AMCA Meet. Don is a true devotee of collectable motorcycles and is eager to share his knowledge and also learn from those with a similar passion.

    Finally, If you are interested in becoming a judge please contact us and let us know of your particular area of expertise in machine Marques, wheels, plating, saddles, paint etc.  Those who took the time to assist with judging last year could not speak highly enough of the experience and are looking forward to returning this year. We are looking to recruit judges to assist in the many and varied machines we are beginning to attract to the judging field.  Training will be provided and with the AMCA Chief Judge in attendance, you will be in good hands.

    With the Meet fast approaching, get those machines ready and I would encourage you to enter your pride and joy in the judging field.  Nothing ventured, nothing gained!

    THE ENTRY FORM IS ATTACHED

    For all judging enquiries please contact Ian Pryde on 0412 575 965 or by email ian.pryde@optusnet.com.au
