08/7/2012 What a fantastic Show

Atlong last the sun shone on the Fylde Coast for the 5th Blackpool Bike Show The show, now in it’s 6th year, took on a slightly different approach this year by charging all a couple of quid to park up in the picturesque Italian Gardens at Stanley Park, instead of just charging those who wanted to enter their bikes & trikes into the show. We also moved away from buying in the trophies and instead had them created by our very own Grobo. The outcome of these changes resulted in a gross profit just short of 350 which when combined with the small amount raised at Blackpool MAG Rally meant we could donate a cheque for 400 to this year’s chosen charity, the National Association for Bikers with a Disability, bringing freedom and independence to those who appreciate it more than most. Humongous thanks to those who displayed their machines and also to the hardworking MAG marshals who ran the event.
