Bat­tle brings huge bounty

Tweed Daily News - - NEWS | OPINION - — David ‘LAARZ’ Laarhoven, A1 Coffs Coast Tours

To our sur­prise, we were over­whelmed with up­beat and friendly faces through­out the re­gion.

I WOULD like to thank the com­mu­nity for em­brac­ing and wel­com­ing us to the Tweed re­gion on our re­cent stay vol­un­teer­ing for the Bat­tle Recharge.

We had ex­pected af­ter the tu­mul­tuous start to the year with chaotic and haz­ardous weather events, a shat­tered and frac­tured com­mu­nity how­ever, to our sur­prise, we were over­whelmed with up­beat and friendly faces through­out the re­gion.

The Bat­tle Recharge event was a very re­ward­ing event for my­self and fel­low moto es­corts from the jour­ney to the scenery and well or­gan­ised cy­cle race with na­tional sig­nif­i­cance.

The eco­nomic stim­u­lus to the re­gion would have been very sig­nif­i­cant with or­gan­is­ers, com­peti­tors and crew spend­ing many days in the re­gion trav­el­ling and

spend­ing a great deal of money whilst be­ing re­warded with scenic roads and eclec­tic vil­lages to come back and ex­plore in the fu­ture.

Thank you, we will re­turn with friends soon to ex­plore your beau­ti­ful re­gion.
