Tsunami Cruise Proposal. Please Read.

Hey everyone,

well, as we all know the world is in a major crisis. Hence I thought that maybe we could all have some fun and raise some money towards the cause.

So to cut to the point, I was looking to organise a crusie with as many clubs on the 16th (or 23rd) of January. I've got backing from the Australian Red Cross for such an event.

My proposal is that we meet at a venue (open for discussion) and cruise to a place where people can enjoy a picnic and a day at the beach (being summer). Not looking for a long drive, but somewhere where we can raise some interest and more donations.

Why the Red Cross?
I've been in close contact with my mother who is assisting in the region, in specific a region near Chennai on India's East Coast. She tells me that while other organisations are doing their part, the Red Cross seems to be ahead in the relief operations and have more efficent logistical support than others.

I end here with the floor open to discussion regarding this proposal. If you would be keen to help with a little organising, please contact me on 0433 12345 7. Tell everyone. Please contact as many clubs as possible (as a starting point, car or bike). This can not be an individual effort!!

Thank You for your time.

Sincerely,

Kieran Pradeep.

I'd be in, and I'm sure quite a few people from here would be interested too.

That being said, the 23rd is out for me.

although you may have a bit of trouble with the big Albury All Ford day at the end of the month, people would be preparing for that

Re: Tsunami Cruise Proposal. Please Read.

I'm leaning towards the 16th. Just that on the weatherchannel.com.au says that it might be rain on the 16th, hence why I suggested 23rd. Still early days. I'd really like this to pick up over the next few days. Any suggestions with venues guys and gals?!

Thanks,

Kieran.

Re: Tsunami Cruise Proposal. Please Read.

Hey all, will post what I've posted on other forums :

I've contacted the Kawasaki club I'm member of. I've also looked at Bikers Anon, Sydney Knights, LS1.com.au... I'm trying to get as many as possible. True, there is no real hurry. If we do something really well, with all states, I'd be happy doing this sometime in Febuary. The thing is getting as much money from people while the issue is still hot. Human nature makes us slowly less involved in events as time goes on. Thats why I was looking to coordinate something big and fast. Hence why I'm asing for as much help as possible.

Also money is needed now. Even though it will be on going, there is a shortage now! Its amazing how little can make so much a difference.

For example, my mom is trying to set up stoves and housing for people who have been left homeless. its costs $4.20 per stove and $1250 per house. I wanted to ask people to donate $5 on arrival at least and then you'll have the most people giving more.

Some good points Bucknaked.

P Platers, heres your chance to get your HI PO cars a crusie safely for a good cause.

I will be contacting Tody FM and NOVA once I get some ideas finalised.

Any idea for a location guys??

Keep em coming guys.

Kieran.

Also will add, the 23rd seems the day to do it. I've gotton a lot of respose at Fordforums.com.au and other states seem keen on the idea. hopefully we can club ACT and NSW together and let Vic and SA do their thing. I'm still looking for a place to do this. Northern Beaches seem like a good ending point, but where can we start to hold so many people. I was also considering Bankstown Square, they have a large open area.

Cheers,

Kieran.

Re: Tsunami Cruise Proposal. Please Read.

I just thought of having Bankstown Square as a starting point. Plenty of parking and then we can cruise up the M5 to the beaches...

Re: Tsunami Cruise Proposal. Please Read.
