Annual Jampot Rally
The Kiwi Jampot Rally is set to alternate between the North and South Islands, with (usually) 2 years in the North Island and 1 year in the South, although more recently this pattern has changed due to availability of venues. This reflects the larger number of club members in the North Island and also a greater variety of venues.
Jampot Rally 2021
March 5/6/7 2021
Mount Somers Holiday Park
Saturday’s Hinterland ride includes a visit to the Rangitata Diversion Race intake, lunch at Blue Pub Methven (followed by AGM). The ride then continues to, and for a look through the Highbank power-station on Rakaia river.
Annual General Meeting
The Club's AGM is held in conjunction with the annual rally. At the AGM, Executive Committee reports to members as to what has been happening over the last financial year and asks members to approve of the financial statement prepared by the Treasurer. Most importantly, the members appoint the various office holders.
If you are thinking about giving back to the Club, now’s your chance. To gain an idea of what a particular role would look like, we have prepared guidelines for your consideration.
International Jampot Rally, Nelson
In February, 2020, we hosted our second International Jampot Rally for Matchless and AJS motorcycle riders. But before that we held a pre-rally tour of New Zealand's South Island.
There were gravel roads, washed out roads, it rained, it poured, it was hot, it was cold, it was fun!
If you're looking to tour the South Island, see where we went on our motorcycles. What's more, there's a downloadable 24 page PDF, complete with maps, and places to stay and visit. It's is yours to enjoy.
2019 Jampot Rally - Rangiwoods - Manawatu
The 2019 Jampot Rally has been held at Camp Rangi Woods in the Pohangina Valley. The camp is in a rural setting situated in the Totara Reserve regional park, locally known as “The jewel of the Manawatu”. The area is of native forest and Camp Rangi Woods runs parallel to the Pohangina River 35 minutes from Palmerston North and Feilding.
The 2019 Jampot was our “second try” at having a rally at Rangi Woods as those who attended the 2012 Jampot rally there will recall that the weather bomb that hit the district was particualy devastating and violent.
This time around the weather was fine - just a spot of overnight rain. Then it was zoom, zoom, zoom a long the quite back roads of the Manawatu. Up hill and down dale, around corners made for motorcycles. Brilliant!
Here’s a photo of the rally. More will be popped up over the next few days.
See you next year at our International Rally.
