We were well primed by our Mac­quarie Towns Club mates that the Sin­gle­ton rally was one not to miss and they were right! The small club of 65 mem­bers, Sin­gle­ton Clas­sic Mo­tor­cy­cle Club put on a fab­u­lous rally with the hub of the ac­tion be­ing the beau­ti­fully pre­served Sin­gle­ton Show­ground Grand­stand Pav­il­lion. Blessed with beau­ti­ful weather, there were two Satur­day rides; a short run of 110km and a longer one of 230km. The lat­ter took rid­ers (and many pil­lion pas­sen­gers) from HQ out through the vine­yards of Broke and on to the morn­ing tea stop at Lake Lid­dell, near Muswell­brook. From there the run con­tin­ued to Den­man and through some fab­u­lous rid­ing coun­try to Jerry’s Plains be­fore re­turn­ing to Sin­gle­ton for lunch and judg­ing. Satur­day evening’s prize pre­sen­ta­tion at the Sin­gle­ton Bowl­ing Club in­cor­po­rated a trivia night and a hearty meal which was en­joyed by all. The week­end con­cluded with a short ride on Sun­day morn­ing with all the rides be­ing ex­pertly mar­shalled – a real credit to the or­gan­is­ers in what was a very pleas­ant week­end in the Hunter Val­ley.
