The latest from Atlas

Monday, 21 December 2015


The team at Atlas is proud to announce we have raised a WHOPPING $21,564 for the QMTBC this year! This is a combined fund between The GB’s Club and the Atlas SOS party. We could not have done it without everyone eating and drinking at Atlas between October and November – and of course the hundreds and hundreds of people who attended, participated and purchased raffle tickets and t-shirts at the Season of Shred Party!

The GB’s Club (The Good Bastard’s Club) ran for 5 weeks in Atlas. We had a ton of sponsors donating product, which in turn allowed Atlas to save a % of the months earnings. This included items like $1 per pint sold and $1.50 per Collarbone Cure sold etc. The grand total for the GB’s = $11,004. A massive thanks goes to: Steamer Wharf | Altitude Brewing | Octane Coffee Roasters | Ivy & Lola's | Emerson's Brewery | Coopers Brewery | Thatcher's Cider | Bidvest | QT Laundry Services | Tuatara Brewing | Zeffer Cider | Terraces | Garage Project Brewery | European Bakery | Southern Hospitality | Liquor King | Alpine Milk | Farelli's | Ronnie Baker and again everyone who ate and drank at Atlas for these special 5 weeks.

The Atlas SOS Party (Season of Shred Party) is the grand finale to The GB's Club. The party moved up to Wynyard Freestyle Jump Park this year and included BBQs, beers, a DJ, local band Rules of Addiction, over 65 riders shredding in the Vertigo Huck-a-thon and the biggest raffle giveaway Queenstown has ever seen! This is the party people will talk about all year (especially because of the insane mosh pit!) After thousands of raffle tickets were sold and limited edition t-shirts worn by all, $10,560 was our grand SOS total. SUCCESS!

The raffle and SOS would not have been such a huge success without the help from these GB's: QMTBC | Ronnie Baker | Tom Tom Productions | Brandland | Bikeaholic | Queenstown Bike Taxis | Skyline Queenstown | Spa Hire Queenstown | Crankworx | Skyline Rotorua | Peterpans | Cardrona | Heliline | Queenstown Rafting | White Tiger | Outside Sports | Gibbston Valley | Fishing Charters | Carters | Spoke Magazine | Queenstown Health | Wide Open | Onsen | Mons Royale | AJ Hackett | Sram | Hells Gate | Southstar Shuttles | Novotel | Abracadabra Cafe.

Last year we were pretty blown away when we raised $12,144.50. However this year we almost doubled it – $21,564! Talk about hitting it out of the ball park! Atlas would again like to thank everyone that was involved – volunteers, sponsors, photographers, MC, drinkers, eaters, huckers – we definitely could not have done any of it without you!

Now bring on summer shredding!
