Default MRA (alledgedly) at it again with lunacy festival

I have posted this here and on my site
these are alledged problems and not, definate, but going on past experience of people here then they seem perfectly viable allegations
Had an email from a member of my forum who was looking for further info about Mr Hillock
and i quote
"Mr Hillock, who we now refer to as Mr Pillock,turned up with an envelope containing a bit of cash and then promptly left. Half the bands couldn't be payed"

now i know that people here have had the same or similar problems with this idiot
so i think its about time we negatively advertise his events - i am more than happy to add events to the calender with the warning of DO NOT ATTEND attached
so if anyone hears about any other MRA events then please let me know

this person is was conning bikers out of money, now he is trying festivals which are advertised in the bikers press - its about time he was stopped
the story from the person who emailed my site is similar to creatures and stevies dealings
whereby a club stepped in to keep it going so people had a good time

ohh i forgot to add alledgedly its all alledged - but i guess those that know, know the truth alledgedly of course

put on a few rallies over the last few years using the names of now defunct rallies and (Alledgedley) not turning up himself leaving them without anyone organising and also if he did appear he shot off without paying bands etc..
there are a few threads here on 100% about them.

We have had the misfortune of being talked 'at' by him on many occasions as he targets established rallies and big shows to drum up trade.

He was full of boasting on how he had the biggest bands ever on his books and that thousands of bikers attended these rallies.

He also said that there would be an auto jumble on the sundays so that we could keep the trade stand there for an extra day. What he omited to mention was that the auto jumble was not actually the same site as the rally and we would have to move the stand to be there (or alternatively have it at the autojumble and not be part of the rally). So on the premis that it takes a good 4 hours to put up and another 3 hours to get down we could have started at midnight on the Saturday night and moved the stand by 7am the next morning.

I have looked at his website which seems co-incidentally to be not working.

My last action as a MAG Director was sending his crappy envelope full of crappily produced flyers back to him, after I'd opened it and stuck a note in there saying 'not interested!' or words to that effect - didn't put a stamp on it - used his original envelope scribbled out my address and put his on top, so he'd have been lumbered with the postage.

here the link http://www.100-biker.co.uk/forums/sh...light=creature

I have been informing local bands as well as other smaller bands trying to break into the rally scene. Some bands I just got to in time as they were about to confirm bookings with this twit !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

and to top it all off had a phone call from him a few weeks ago to see if i would do the disco at one of his doo's over the bank holiday - it was a pleasure to NO !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am lucky as i manged to get all my money out of him in the end, but people like this dont deserve to ruin other peoples lives and hard work.

i have added a link to his next rally MRA's Western Warrior - Indian Summer to my events listings with the following warnings
http://www.bikerlifestyle.co.uk/event/wc092007.htm


All ithe information i am prepared to give about this event that
I WOULD NEVER GO

on your own head be it, if you go
or you are a band or a stall holder
allegations about the organisers are rife across the biker scene and i personally know of people who have been stung by him.

my opinion is DO NOT ATTEND

if you still want further info about this rally - you could check their website
well except for the fact that it has been down for quite some time.

so the choice is yours.

He tried to rope us (Tiger MCC) into one of his hairbrained schemes a few months ago but we smelt a rat and told him to sling his hook.

His modus operadi seems to be.

1) Advertise rally using old rally name that has gone out of use.

2) Rope in a club local to the event to "help out"

3) Take the money and run leaving others to sort out his bills


cunt.

Yeah, but if the last one was the "X-th bodgit and scarper rally" his will be advertised as the "X+1-th bodgit and scarper rally" even though the last one was 6 years ago...
