THE MARCH HARE
There’s nothing better than an old school rally…
Feature by Johann (Oz Trikes)
There’s nothing better than an old school rally which is exactly what we were treated to in New Zealand a few months back. We just happened to be over there on the South Island enjoying a touring trip with a few trikes and luck would have it the 32nd Annual March Hare Rally was being held in Waimate – and what a weekend!
With nearly 2000 people in attendance, it’s one of the biggest rallies in the Southern Hemisphere and continues to grow every year. The weekend was packed full of entertainment including live bands kicking off Friday night, a fully stocked bar which did a roaring trade all weekend along with a bike and trike show on the Saturday afternoon which was followed up with a great evening of drinking and partying.
The best part was wandering through the campsites and meeting all the different characters, who were all there enjoying the same thing – a weekend of good times. And everyone behaved too, with nobody blowing over the limit at the breath testing checkpoint set up outside the event leaving police very pleased with the weekend.
