The Clarence Val­ley His­toric & En­thu­si­asts Mo­tor­cy­cle Club ran its an­nual rally with the weather forecast look­ing very omi­nous. Thank­fully, even though we re­ally needed the rain, it held off for the first two days. Fri­day af­ter­noon saw a good num­ber of rid­ers head off for a shake­down ride to visit the site of Grafton’s new su­per prison un­der con­struc­tion, un­for­tu­nately one of the mar­shal’s bikes (mine) broke down be­fore get­ting to the al­lot­ted in­ter­sec­tion re­sult­ing in much con­fu­sion & a very scat­tered group, some made it to the gaol site, oth­ers ended up at the pub at Ul­marra; strange that. On Satur­day morn­ing around 100 bikes left our base at Grafton Show­grounds and rode down to the Glen­reagh Moun­tain Rail­way shed for morn­ing tea fol­lowed by a run to Corindi for lunch and en­trants choice judg­ing at the Am­ble Inn. On Satur­day evening we held the pre­sen­ta­tion din­ner at Grafton District Ser­vices club where we had, as usual, an ex­cel­lent buf­fet meal fol­lowed by tro­phy giv­ing, a tombola raf­fle and a very dif­fi­cult trivia quiz. Sun­day morn­ing saw the rain set in and only a very small group make their way to Lam­bruks Gun­yah (a very in­ter­est­ing mu­seum on a work­ing farm that pro­cesses their own olives & breed cat­tle, al­pacas & goats) for morn­ing tea. We would like to thank our spon­sors, all our vis­i­tors and our club mem­bers who made it all hap­pen.
