MOA - Service Day - 29 August 2004

Even before you get in the yard there are Mokes everywhere. They come from all over the country. All sorts of odd mokes. They congregate for one of the monthly service days when everybody gets to walk around, kicking tires and discussing the pros and cons of how to set your moke up properly. This is a great day for anybody with a moke who would like to discover what the unusual plunk noise, or the occasional clump, clump, sound might be. We all know that no noises should occur in mokes, but if they do, this is the biggest pool of experts you will find in the one place at the one time, to be able to help you out. Quite often it's a case of simply, stand back and they will do a lot of it for you (if you want). The MOA is an amazingly helpful club and these service days are worth more than you could imagine. If you own a moke and do not take advantage of the service days, aside from costing yourself money, you are depriving yourself of one of the joys of owning a moke.
