The smell of burned rubber couldn’t be missed but the smoke was even more visseble. Even from a distance you instandly knew – because of the sound and a little later the smoke and as last the smell – a tire was making a one way trip to the moon aka bin.
On Friday many guests arrived at the clubhouse and placed their tents on the clubgrounds around the clubhouse. Saterday many more guests came over to our party. These photos below are from Friday afternoon.
This year the prize for ‘Best bike of the field’ was won by Marcel from the Veterans MC with his very ‘neat’ knucklehead chopper. And it’s always not easy to make a choice to decide wich bike ticks all boxes. This one did.
This prize, also forged in fire and made by RMC member Sloper
Marcel from the Veterans MC and Wicky and Beer, Rogues MC members.
This year the challenge was to run about 25 metres to your bike, try to ‘kickstart’ your bike to life, then ride with your bike to the point where you started to run from. Some of the contenders forgot the last part. But hey, that’s why it’s called ‘silly games’.
Below and above some pictures of this game and Lakeside receiving his ‘award’ from Beer and made by our Rogue member Sloper. Photos made by Dionne and Sharon.
After several rounds Rene from HDC Lakeside was announced winner of this contest.
As always happy faces when awarded a RMC prize made Rogues members
You have bikers in all sizes and shapes from all over the world. And also from young to old. But they all have one thing in common; they like bike riding and a bit of ‘competition’ among each other.
Especially when it comes to ‘knowing’ their own strength and weaknesses most of ‘m try to exaggerate their own abilities. And that is exactly what makes ‘Silly games’ such a fun to watch and/or to take part of it and try to go for the ultimate goal; ‘try to win the prize’.
The weather was perfect and the visitors all in very good mood. A lot of ‘m had their mobile phone ready for some photos or video recording. And of course each of them had their own ‘favourite’.
There were several rounds and the winner from each round had to compete against the other winners in the final run. This year it was almost a ‘photo’ finish, but Tristan stayed less then 30cm behind his direct opponent which made him the ‘Slowest’.
Extreme concentration and tension can be read from their faces. Here we see Tristan during the ‘final’ lap.
Ger and Fonda in action to decide who’s the ‘slowest’ in each round.
And Tristan happened to be the ‘slowest’and ‘youngest’ biker as well. A little over 18 or just 19 years old. It makes me feel old… haha.
Tristan on his way to ‘eternal fame’.

Tommy Arthurson from Rabalder MC – Tunsberg – Norway received the prize made by Co-founder Beer from Rogues MC Opmeer for the ‘Longest Distance’ on a chopper to reach our clubhouse. A little over 2.700 km if I am informed correctly.
Edit; Beer told me is was 2.900 km.

After receiving the prize Tommy felt the urgent need to say somthing to our member Bob…. Well, I will not repeat it here and now on this blog, but fun it was for sure, if you could understand it, that is….
Tomorrow the ‘gates’ will be opened of our clubhouse grounds and our 43th anniversary starts. As we mentioned earlier there are several prizes to win. Also a prize for the person who can ride the slowest of ‘m all and a prize for him or her who can kick their bike the fastest to life. And as always it is fun to watch.
Below the prize to be earned during the ‘slowrace’ and the one during the ‘kickstart’ race. These are made by our member Sloper who forged them in fire as seen in the third picture.
