November 19, 2020 | 0 Comments

David Cahill, the event director of the 3rd annual Scooter Mart Bermuda Charge, expressed his gratitude to supporters, saying the event was attended by some 200 people and raised more than $6,000 for the museum.

“I would like to personally thank Bermuda’s motor enthusiasts for such a show of comradeship; it was amazing to see the population rally together to protect the Bermuda Vintage Transport Museum,” he said.

The 2020 Bermuda Charge start in Dockyard:

“The ride and show sold out well in advance, and proceeds from ticket sales and the exciting live auction raised more than $6,000 for the museum – that sum is the equivalent of 1,200 museum visitors! After such a tough year, this donation marks a big relief on financial pressures. It was truly heartwarming to witness the camaraderie between the riders.”

“The closed event was attended by 200 people including riders, sponsors, and event staff. The motorcade took place at sunset, with participants heading from Dockyard to Hamilton and back, under the supervision of marshals from the Bermuda Long Riders Motorcycle Club.

“After the ride, the museum hosted a vehicle light show, prize presentations for Best in Show bikes and cars, and a live auction. The grand prizes were a Yamaha NVX scooter and helmets from title sponsor Scooter Mart, a Yamaha V50 motorcycle from Autobahn, and a full paint job and service from Martins Precision Automotive.

“There were also valuable listings from Freisenbruch-Meyer, Custom Acoustics, Rubis, Robinson’s Marina, Wheel Builders, Goslings, BERMI, and Bermuda Electroplating.

Mr Cahill added: “The support crews who helped us put together the spectacle really did an excellent job. We’re so appreciative of the BPS for the skill and professionalism of the Police escort, the St John ambulance crew who trailed the ride, the volunteer judges, and event team.

“We also enjoyed incredible entertainment from the St George’s Original Dancerettes, DJ Cheeky, Island Teazza, and live auctioneer Karen Plianthos of Bermuda Wine Concierge. Of course, such a thrilling show is only possible with the assistance of our loyal sponsors, to whom we are indebted.”

“This year’s sunset edition was the most anticipated display so far. It was inspiring to see spectators setting up camp all the way along the route, preparing to watch the motorcade pass – the show has really been embraced as a colourful and vibrant exhibition that our island looks forward to.

“One of the observers this year remarked that we have more in common than what divides us, and events like this are the social glue that keeps us together – I couldn’t agree more, it was wonderful to hear.”
