    Is it both days mate? They're hopeless at promotion, I'm 90 mins ride away and saw/heard nothing. Bugger, I'm in the rep team for Saturday now, can't make Sat.

    Says Friday to sunday. I didn't see any advertising for it either, just googled it for info. Saw a couple of nice bikes on a trailer while I was there today and a few campers at the show ground.

    There is a price for Saturday only $20 at the gate no camping, concession prices available with your card if you have one.
    Matt wants it to be an annual thing but needs to have better promotion if it is to go on, there are people there so it must have been advertised somewhere.

    Its been advertised in a heap or magazines, online, insta. Heaps of bike  builders have posted about it on insta as theyre building bikes specifically for it.
    Maybe ive only noticed it because I normally go, weathers pretty shitty today though so probably wont head out.

    Went to have a look, some nice bikes there. Cold breeze but no rain while I was there, chance to meet people while sucking some heat from camp fires. If I remember next year I would like to camp Saturday night and see what sort of parties happen.

    I was riding on the NSW south coast that weekend but did not know about that show, road through Braidwood on the Wednesday before that show never seen any sign's or flyers up. but saw a lot of MC's going south while I was riding north on Sunday morning. weather had been a bit iffy, but the Sunday turned out ok. maybe next year.

    They are pan head style that I had custom made for the bike.

    $60 for camping is a rip. They're up against thousands of country shows and carnivals that have free camping. They need to piss that fee off if they want it to grow, if council exhorbitant ground hire is the driver of the fees, piss the council off and move venues. I just came back from the Wellington Boot races. Four days free camping, free firewood, free hot showers and clean shitters, free entry to races. Place was PACKED. That's how you do it...
