28–30 Au­gust, 2015 – Grafton, NSW

An­other suc­cess­ful rally run by the Clarence Val­ley His­toric & En­thu­si­asts Mo­tor­cy­cle Club saw good weather, roads and food en­joyed by our vis­i­tors. Fri­day’s af­ter­noon ride was to Min­nie Wa­ters and about 40 rid­ers took part with the in­fa­mous Grafton bendy bridge claim­ing an­other vic­tim. On Satur­day, 105 rid­ers fol­lowed the Clarence River out to Cop­man­hurst for a re­fresh­ment stop be­fore go­ing to Coal­dale for lunch and judg­ing. Af­ter a de­li­cious meal sup­plied by the mem­bers of the Coal­dale Hall Trust ev­ery­one re­turned to Grafton (some tak­ing the op­por­tu­nity to do some sight­see­ing on the way) to freshen up for the evening pre­sen­ta­tion din­ner at Grafton Dis­trict Ser­vices Club, whose staff again did a won­der­ful job look­ing af­ter us. On Sun­day morn­ing we had a leisurely ride to Lawrence to en­joy the leg­endary morn­ing tea put on by the hall so­ci­ety ladies. Here we said our good­byes as ev­ery­one made their var­i­ous ways home. Many thanks to our spon­sors, in par­tic­u­lar Shan­non’s In­sur­ance, to our won­der­ful vis­i­tors and to all the club mem­bers who made the week­end so good.
