Pete (Grizz) Yates will go to the ends of the Earth for a rare MV or a unique MV experience.
He has organised a sleepout under a WWII Waiheke Island gun emplacement – in the magazine! He has restored a super rare Chev Field Artillery Tractor (CMP FAT). He is a formidable organiser and has breathed new life and energy into local NZMVC branches.
Now Yates is bringing his experience of the Alaska and Bankhead convoys to New Zealand to create our first rolling National Rally, travelling in convoy nationwide.
As owner of a fertiliser business, Pete knows what it takes to organise efficiently and get things done. Proud father of two adult girls, he is fiercely loyal to people he cares for.
Armistice 100 Convoy 2018 is in capable hands!
