30th RMC Choppershow winner

Yesterday we held our 30th RMC Choppershow in ‘De Weijver’ in Hoogwoud. Dale Arenson from Arizona- USA was our special guest this year. Dale, an chopper-expert himself, had the honor to point out the winner of the show.

The winner this year was Bart Hendriks. He arrived at our show on his black ‘Wild Swede’ with a more then 20inch overstock fork. Wicky, our president, club-founder Beer and Dale Arenson handed out the prizes awarded to him.

The trophy, made by Beer, a signed book from Dale Arenson, a E 100,–voucher from Roadside repairshop and not the least; eternal fame.

Choppershow History – 1997

The show-poster below is from 1997 when we held our 6th RMC Choppershow for the fourth time in ‘De Dars’ in Wervershoof. On the poster we see Ed and his older brother and clubfounder Beer. As most of you know, Ed passed away in 2019. May he rest in peace.

Our 6th show was blessed with very good weather and many people visited ‘De Dars’ that day.

A small article published in ‘Noord-Hollands Dagblad’ n the 27th of March.

The ‘ticket shop’, a old caravan, with the security making sure all goes well.

Visitors all over the place…

Lifting a chopper on to a pick-up truck ain’t that easy as it seems.

We had to do a lot of lifting in the ‘Rogues’ corner to get them all in place.

Come and see Bas de Boon’s paintings and talk to him at his booth at our show.

This beautiful Triumph Chop was built by Aad heemskerk and Mark van der Kwaak from the famous DBBP.  Duckman’s Bitching Biker page!

You have to see it up close and you know what?

March 31 it is possible because we have it on our show!

Choppershow History – 1995

Years ago, back in 1993, we came to the conclusion that we needed more space to host our show. In those days we couldn’t use the space we now use to host our choppershows. Because of the Line-Dance frestivals organised during Easter in ‘De Weijver’ in Hoogwoud. Line-dancing was ‘hot’ in the early nineties. Many years later ‘De Weijver’ finally came available.

But as I wrote, back in 1995, that wasn’t an option. So ‘De Dars’ in Wervershoof became the place to be to admire choppers etc.

Below some examples of the second time we held our show there and on the show poster we see our member Brembo on his chopper.

One week from today – 30th RMC Choppershow

It’s the final week for us to make sure all goes well on Sunday the 31st of March during our 30th RMC Choppershow.

Last week we received official approval from our municipal council to allow the show to go ahead. The regulations surrounding the organization of such events, where more than 1000 visitors are expected, is not an easy task.

Anyway, we got it. Now it’s our job to connect the dots.

The only thing we, and actually no one in the world, has any influence over is the weather. We hope that this will be good for all of us, you visitors and us.

So, from my place here; ‘All the best, ride safe and till comming Sunday in Sports centre ‘De Weijver’ in Hoogwoud.
