Cruis­ing the Clarence

Old Bike Australasia - - RALLY REPORTS - Re­port Terry Ryan Pho­tos Holt

Another suc­cess­ful rally with the weather be­ing very kind and our en­trants en­joy­ing good rides and good com­pany; nice to see a grow­ing num­ber of Queens­lan­ders com­ing along. Fri­day af­ter­noon saw us leave rally base at Grafton Show­ground for a leisurely ride to Cop­man­hurst af­ter the ini­tial plan to go to Jack­adgary had to be aban­doned due to road works. We re­turned to base for a meet & greet and sausage siz­zle. On Satur­day morn­ing about 90 bikes left base to travel along­side the Clarence, over the river on the Bluff Point ferry at Lawrence then on to Ma­clean Look­out for morn­ing tea fol­lowed by en­trants choice judg­ing and lunch at the Brush­grove Ho­tel where the new (he’d been there just 6 days) publi­can and his wife and staff did a great job to feed the hun­gry horde. The Satur­day night din­ner was at Grafton Dis­trict Ser­vices Club where we were looked af­ter as usual with an ex­cel­lent meal and held the usual pre­sen­ta­tions and tombola raf­fle. On Sun­day morn­ing a good num­ber of en­trants rode to Wooli to take part in the an­nual Kids With Can­cer week­end that the Wooli com­mu­nity put on. The club would like to thank our spon­sors, par­tic­u­larly Shan­nons In­sur­ance, and all the en­trants and club mem­bers who com­bined to make a great week­end.
