Fri­day’s short shake­down run was to the his­toric Tal­bot Ho­tel. We had hot weather for Satur­day’s run to Mal­don where we had lunch and browsed the his­toric shops. Our re­turn was an in­ci­dent-free 100km run via Ed­ding­ton and Caris­brook. Sun­day’s run was via New­stead to Clunes Show­grounds for the Truck Show where our bikes were dis­played in a des­ig­nated area. A mini dust storm fol­lowed by some rain had a few depart early and we re­turned to the Mary­bor­ough Hockey Field car park for a short dis­play and the vot­ing for awards. Mon­day’s ride was out to Tal­bot and then to Lex­ton be­fore pro­ceed­ing on to Avoca for morn­ing tea and re­turn­ing to Mary­bor­ough. Our din­ner at the his­toric rail­way sta­tion restau­rant was held in the main func­tion room where pre­sen­ta­tions by rally or­gan­iser Matthew Gellert were made.
