Private sellers get there by 9am for 10am start. More info here: Biking Brisbane
Joe painted my bike. If I put it in for judging, will he be biased...
Might go the other way. Joe's probably the most critical person of his own work!
He is pretty humble like that.
Have finally done the flyer up. To be seen in all good LBS's.
Great event! Do you have to register beforehand for the show and shine, or just turn up on the day? Thanks
No need to register. Just turn up on the day around 9 and we'll get you in. We'll have a bike stand/display option but if you have a favourite stand, feel free to bring your own too.
Great, thanks for letting me know, looking forward to it, Brisbane needs more of it!

Wow, this sounds great. What would be the earliest I could get an entry in show n shine?
I have promised to be riding a tandem at Nundah early that day.
I'll be having a private stall at this. Come and say hi. I'll be wearing a Uni CC cap.
Fausto Coppi Reparto Corse | Giant Farrago Cross
which cap can i weaaaar? swap meet, swap meet, gotta get down on swap meet!
I'll be there with several bikes & small pile of bike related gear for sale.
Nothing really show worthy though as most of my ye-oldie bikes are a bit mish mashed when it comes to the era specific items.
I have a couple of 3 x 3 gazebos I might take down if anybody would like to share some shade. Or maybe it's a covered car park ? Would anybody be able to fill me in on the area of the swap meet ?
Gas propulsion.......it's natural don't fight it.
yeah, dudes definitely need an event management type to promote it more
(having said that, i will probably turn up and be blown away by the 15,000-strong crowd)
It is r-r-r-
I dont wanna say it! .....raining today, it's also meant to be r*#~ing on Sunday too is there a wet weather plan?
Hi all - yes, all still going ahead whatever the weather. The bowls club building itself is pretty large, so can fit a lot in there and a lot of the more established set-ups will have marquees. And, fingers crossed, the rain if it comes, is pretty minimal. 9am roll up for private sellers and show n shiners. The carpark is uncovered but fairly big - this Google view gives you an idea (it's behind the green on the right) Aerial view
This is the first one, so estimating numbers, catering, facilities etc has been interesting - thank you everyone who has plugged this event and everyone coming along.
Latest updates, news and pics will go up via Pushies Galore on Facebook
i'll be there in my pink 'meat is murder' t-shirt!
and wearing pants too, probably.
