    This is just a 'heads up'.

    A mate, from the ACT and not on here, is in the formative portion of a ride to Coonabarabran. Obviously, a bit of a support effort for the people who've suffered from the fires.

    At this point there are no firm commitments.

    He's assessing interest.


    The proposal is for
    * an April or May date;
    * donation of $30 into a kity;
    * estimated $10 for camping

    that's as far as it goes.

    I'd expect a mixture of riders - bitumen & all-road tourers mostly.


    May there be any interest out there?


    We made a pretty good weekend of it when a few of us went to Marysville. Put quite a few dollars into the town and that was appreciated.

    PS I recognise that people around Seaton have suffered too but, this idea was commenced last week. It's not my place to suggest the idea be expanded.

    I told Steve that he could expect some good response from AdvRider 'cause you blokes and blokettes are always up for a ride.

    Think we can fit this in for a bloody good cause, when I lived in Vic and was I the CFA during Black Saturday the support from all sort of varied groups was fantastic - good idea o this one gents.

    Anyone for the Camden area Keen?? Let's get a crew together??
