    bit early for this but have just been told that this is the last one to be held at the brindabella site.
    Henning is sending the flyer and will put it up when i get it
    but have had a email from him confirming this

    so maybe enough time to organise the time off to get to this one

    Bit sad about this, to me - this is the real Alpine as it should be, in a hard to get to location,
    Hope we can find an excellent replacement spot for this

    Yeah been in there a few times. Bit unfortunate. Hopefully they can find an alternative. Wee Jasper?

    Memories! Remember helping a mate refit a dropped valve seat in his R100 in there one year.

    just means more people should go to the last one in there
    wont be the end of the ALPINE just this location
    think the property is sold or for sale ????

    another location like this one is a hard find now but suppose we will have to wait to see what happens

    State Forest is just down the Brindabella road ... talk to the local State Forest office? (Possibly Yass or Tumut). The Kuraha Rv Rally hires the site from State Forests- exclusive use. Difficulty would be a clear site.

    Getting cooler some nights - probably colder up in the hills.

    Wee Jasper would be a great spot. The youngish ranger is a good bloke and very willing to help out with firewood when we camped off the bikes there. Hopefully new owners of the pub since we were there last.

    Have to be Saturday - sunday dance card getting full !
    I'll poke out tomorrow [hopefully] and catch up with the Ranger, see what other areas may come about,
    What about 'Blue Hut' - where we had the 'Capital' three years ago, out of the way and shouldn't offend anyone, toilets already there, no big watercourse though

    Whatever suits Baz.

    No major water course shouldn't matter that time of year.

    Sorry but i think the alpine has to be at least near to the Alpine.

    Henning told us last Alpine that the owner is getting old and is finding it difficult to get around, so this is one less thing for him to worry about.

    We had to use his shed to replace a dropped valve seat in a R100. He heard swear words he never new existed. That was an experience, good or bad, for him.
