The Tassie ride looks like a ripper.

Miss Jane how about the Bendigo Relay then? May is great weather (well hopefully or am I just wishing for anything below 40C, being only 6 months to living in Central Vic?)

Surely you guys can get out first week of May? All for a good cause, you can go down the guilty route to convince those that need convincing.

I'm still scratching for annual leave after the OCR last year & I will need leave for the Flinders Classic and the probably the Vic Cancer Council leg so it's not looking great at this point

Yeah I think the Bendigo Relay is the go, it's just I was hoping to get to the spreading of Bill's ashes on Big Red on 5th May.

Don't know how I'll go for leave this year? I'll see what happens closer to the time. I hope to make it.

I understand. My company even though I'm in negative leave then insisted I take two weeks off in a row this year rather than my planned bits and pieces. Must admit I choose to going skiing for two weeks Better be a good season

Up to you. Now we have linked it to the Relay's it can be done later in the year with one of the other ones in the region. Bacchus Marsh is later in the year. This brings a bit more flexibility into the organising. Part of the reason for the change as it gives us many more options.

Update Update Update

Okay

Qld is in flood
NSW interesting it is either raining, hailing, blowing a gale, or on fire
Vic on Fire (so Relay will be later in the year hopefully linking to Alpine Relay, good visibility around burnt corners)
SA well we struggle to get them to care so the Vic's take it over the border
WA - haven't got there yet, but love them dearly.
NT - Generally open to people passing through, looking for someone to take on and an excuse for everyone to have to get there.

Tassies: Here it comes.......................

besides Lake Leake, Pedder and every other lake with a pub and a dirt road (okay Pedder is now asphalt); Ferntree near Hobart will see some outstanding hospitality (not hospitals) with the ADV guys putting on a BBQ, accommodation and support from the Ferntree pub. Community reigns supreme in Tassie (well every state actually are stars (especially our Central Vic crew and our Canberra Minister), but only a couple of weeks to Tass so on the marketing drive.

For Vics if you want to come, let me know and we can discuss transport.

Those feeling competitive to be the best go for it, I look forward to having to take most of the year off to attend each State's Motorcycle Relay and work with each state to get this up

Remember it is about riding, awareness, having fun and then raising money. More awareness and fun reduces the need for funds, though unfortunately funds are still required.

Lovely to hear from you. We are doing things a bit differently this year as we are linking to Relay for Life's. Didn't you promise last year that you would organise an overseas one? Yes, Bronx is still involved, he is just very good a delegation!!!

Thanks for the link.

Hmm, promise? We'll see what I can do.... Mind you didn't Bruce say he was going to investigate my idea to auction 'a ride down under' by trying to get a loan of a bike from somewhere and a free flight from somewhere. Then find some friendly Aussies to show around the winner for a week or 2? Reckon the pommies/Americans/Germans (from wherever really) may dig deep for that?

What you reckon?

Cheers
