The club’s 27th Annual Rally has been run and done; great weekend had by all with perfect weather for the three days of riding. Friday’s ride out to Green Valley Farm saw 55 riders enjoy this unique theme park and museum. On Saturday, riders assembled at the Pioneer Village in Inverell, the base for our rally. Bikes were lined up in decade categories on the Village Green for judging before leaving on the 108 km run through Ashford, Wallangra to Graman for a delicious BBQ lunch supplied by Graman Hall Committee who used all local produce and homemade cakes. A shorter more direct route of 44km was taken by some older machines. A total of 178 entries made for a great rally and credit to all as there were no breakdowns.
The traditional Saturday night Presentation Dinner was held at the R.S.M. Club with 125 attendees. The presentation of trophies that were made from unused parts and assembled by our members was presented to the winners on the night. Sunday mornings short ride west of Inverell to Mt Russell and back for a small Swap Meet and sausage sizzle topped off an excellent weekend.
