Motorcycle Rally, It's cold enough to freeze the balls off a brass monkey.

Quote Otago Community Hospice ; "We've had Brendan McMahon, one of the organisers of the Brass Monkey, at the hospice this morning with a donation of $4,000! We have to fundraise $2 million this financial year and support like this from our community really makes all the difference. Thanks to the Brass Monkey for choosing to support us!"

"The Brass Monkey Rally is an event organised and run by the Otago Motorcycle Club for the past 34 years. It attracts people not only from all parts of New Zealand, but also from overseas, so it is important to us that monies obtained from the running of our Rally are put to good use. We try to have a worthy recipient to make a donation to every year and at the last Rally we decided it would go to the Neurological Foundation. We picked the Foundation because the research projects funded by the Neurological Foundation are of benefit to all, including motorcyclists," says John Willems of the Organising Committee.

It was appropriate that John and Committee Chairman, Brendan McMahon, handed over the Club's very generous donation of $4,000 at the Neurological Foundation's Brain Day event in Dunedin. John (centre) and Brendan (left) are pictured with Neurological Foundation's Dunedin Community Liaison Co-ordinator, Bridget Hall (right), in front of an inflatable brain at the Brain Day event.

Come to an area in New Zealand known as having a ‘World of Difference’, during mid-winter within Central Otago and join us at the Brass Monkey Rally.

This is New Zealand’s best known Motorcycle Rally. 1500 – 2000 motorcyclists gather at Oturehua to talk and look at each other’s bikes, party and celebrate motorcycling during the winter, in one of New Zealand’s coldest places.

A large bonfire, music, cap off the event and keep the cold away before rally goers find their tents and climb into their sleeping bags.

Snow and frost are common at the Rally. Bonspiels (curling) are also held on the Idaburn Dam, which are organised by the Oturehua Winter Sports Club.
