At the beginning of the 90s our club together
with hundreds or even thousands of motorriders in the country,
who were fed up with the programs of the Hungarian Motor Association,
had the wish to meet with those of the same ilk under such conditions
which better match us.
After several occasional meetings organized on the roads or on
some watersides we consciously started to look for a proper site
where we could host all our brothers. We tried it with camping
sites, areas belonging to savings cooperatives and at a number
of municipalities. At that time everyone abominated motorriders,
thus we had to face refusal everywhere. Of course they never told
us the real reason but the result was just always the same: We
don't want to have hundreds of motorriders amusing themselves
Then Gyuri (who has a ground-plot there) run up against the mayor
of Újszilvás in the pub. This encounter fundamentally affected
our club, Újszilvás and even more motorriders! What happened during
the ominous conversation? Tibor Fehér (Mayor) made a statement...
but let's cite it by word: "A motor show in Újszilvás?
Of course, why not!"
First we didn't believe that we made it, but then we allocated
all the tasks and started work. And finally, in the last week
of June '92 we sweated there, in the bare land, and hoped to finish
The barrenness of the land was first frightening since we had
to make everything on our own, there was nothing done. But at
the same time we knew that this was also a fortune. We had the
opportunity to create its atmosphere on our own, we would not
have to adapt it to anything made earlier. We could place the
tents, the pub and build the stage wherever we would want to.
Alligator MC arrived already on Thursday. Then, on Friday more
and more motors arrived and we were just amazed. It was because
we had not even advertised it! We had put out some rumours and
flyers here and there and we all had noticed our sports.
We were all together 450 people, and a homely, sociable but after
all a colossal party evolved where we did not even bother that
the stripper didn't appear. Instead a fellow performed a strip-tease
- and he had great success! Who was there, left surely with good
feelings. On Sunday when we said goodbye we could be certain that
everyone would come the next time, too.
And everyone did so and besides they had let some other brothers
know about it. Thanks to the nice memories, in '93 three times
as much brothers gathered then one year before. Since then we
have formed ourselves and shaped our meeting together with the
audience, with you, our brothers, and so this group of some thousand
people having the same interest continues to become a social strata
with its own culture and habits. It's a great thing that we had
the opportunity to take part and form this together with the other
"black" motor clubs, our brothers.
Since 1992 motorriders have met several times on the land at Újszilvás.
The party continues to take shape. On what can you see that?
Important is: during the twelve years we planted 1300 woods!
Let's have a look at the music bands! We have made up the music
repertoir always with special care. We have never chosen from
"applying" bands (you may imagine how much there have
been) but we have always seen bands that we liked. Here is a list
of which we have already invited (and what a great show they made!):
Harley Davidson Band, Damned Road, Bomber, Bulldózer, Rat Boys,
Black Riders, Blues Company, Bad Times, Cik Cakk Company, Tequila,
Carmen, Junkies, Stexas… And of course: Karthago, Irigy hónaljmirigy,
Ganxsta Zolee and the Kartel, Deák Bill Gyula and Hobó together,
P. Mobil, Beatrice with Nagy Feró, Tankcsapda and Hammerschmitt
We have had the opportunity to see great concerts!
The infrastructure: through the years the Bungee Jumping tower
has become something like an obvious element from which one can
not only jump but also climb up to look around. By doing so you
will be just amazed to see the size and stretch of our camp. Just
as evident seems to be the lazer show in the evening, the mega-size
stage, the facility to dragon flight, one of the biggest beer-booths
in the country, the fully professional acoustic engineering and
lighting, and that 30 to 40 motor shops appear on the site.
The buffet: Devils Meeting has always had its own means of payment,
i.e. the Devils Dollar. Do you know what's the sense of that?
First of all, it has its own feeling. And what is even more important
and what you may have already discovered: There is no queuing
in the Újszilvás buffet. This is largely due to Devils Dollar
which is none but only coined in 1, 5 and 10 $ denominations.
This makes the buffet operate much quicklier, and thus, it can
supply so many people.
We have come to the most important: Everyone comes to Újszilvás!
The number of participants continuously rises, you can find here
eveyone (well, if you have patience to search...). Though in the
last years it has been only some hundred annually, the reason
for that may be that there are no more people going to motor shows.
Anyway, in 2000 some 6500* people arrived, and usually we are
of that number. We only counted those entering the camp site with
motors, since you may know that one can only enter here by a motor.
We didn't consider those having fun in the pubs and booths between
the village and the camp who may amount to as many again - they
did not come by motors.
fun by looking at the photos!
