Reminder newsletter, extra info to previous one:

A reminder for the club ride on this Sunday 6th Dec.

We are trying (for the first time) scheduling a club ride as the Newcastle Toy Run for an easy morning out and a bit of fun. There will be no Belmont 16Ft Sailing Club breakky on. So, grab a kid and come to the toy run. Or a friend. Or just yourself. But don't forget to bring a toy! Try to get a toy a kid would like to play with, not a soft toy as they get too many of these. It is a real feel good event for those that have gone before, and for those coming for the first time too. Decorate your bike (and yourself) if you wish, many will.

The plan is for me to get there around 8:30am ish and tie the club banner to a tree, pole, wall, elf / whatever to give a target to accumulate around. It does get pretty crowded so the reality may be that you will just park where you can and go with the flow, but do of course wander over to say hello. The banner is a rectangular black and white rectangle approx 2m x 0.5m and depicts a desmo valve, as well as mentioning Ducati in a couple of places of course.

If you haven't got a kid available yourself get one of the neighbours (I have), or someone from work. Whoever you pick will have an experience of a lifetime that they will remember and impress their friends with for weeks to come. It's good "cool factor" stuff for them, plus of course another kid gets to play with your toy.

Please don't let a fear of crowds / close riding put you off. Lots of people of course are not comfortable with this, so what happens in practice is many elect to hold back a little until all the "gotta be firsts" have gone in the main wave and then everyone else can just come along in relatively normal traffic. Then you can enjoy waving to the throngs of spectators without having to worry about anything you are not comfortable with.

When it comes to parking at the other end there is no real prospect of gathering together - if I can tee something up with Big John / whomsoever I will try and get the banner up at the destination, but don't count on it!

The event takes about 2 hours all up. Afterwards it will be "free rides" (as organised on the day), or just lolling about on the foreshore with an icecream / whatever.
 
See you soon (Sunday, OK?) ............Vince

This is a newsletter sent out. Sending bulk email is always a tricky process, if you haven't seen a copy of the below please let me know per below as it is easy to fix (usually).

A reminder for the club ride on Sunday.

Our ride coordinator Glenn has planned the following route, plus we have the weather man scheduling sunshine (and they are never wrong when we need them not to be!):
MEET BELMONT SOUTH SHELL catho- Doyalson rutleys rd Morisset over gap Sandy Ck rd Ellalong Cessnock POKOLBIN lunch at robin Drayton?s McDonalds rd Branxton back road to Bolwarra Paterson through to Hinton Raymond Terrace home. Meet 8:30am for 9am departure.

Please also note there will be no Belmont 16Ft Sailing Club breakky on 6th Dec as the toy run is on and we will attend that instead (look for the club banner) for an easy morning out and a bit of fun. So, grab a kid and come to the toy run. Or a friend. Or just yourself. But don't forget to bring a toy! Try to get a toy a kid would like to play with, not a soft toy as they get too many of these. It is a real feel good event for those that have gone before, and for those coming for the first time too. Decorate your bike (and yourself) if you wish, many will.

Also a minor note - a couple of people have experienced problems viewing the discussion forum. This was due to anti-spam action issues and has now been fixed. If you still see any problems please let me know via webmaster@hunterdog.org.au. Thank you. See you soon (Sunday, OK?) ??????Vince
