I regret to advise that I have received information that Jim Ferrie passed away on 26 August 2016.
Jim was the inaugural secretary of the Melbourne Branch when it was formed way back in 1984 and held that position for 5 years.
I am advised he recently celebrated his 90th birthday.
Please read below and think about volunteering for the 2019 AGM event being held in Mornington Victoria:
The 18th annual Melbourne Branch Odyssey will be held at Nagambie
The Snowy Ride is a great experience and this year is on the weekend of November 5th, the weekend after Cup Day. See www.snowyride.org.au for all the details.
Sam Bateman, Roger Foot and perhaps a few others are going, departing Melbourne Thursday 3rd and leaving Thredbo to return on Sunday 6th.
We still have several Vacancies for ride leaders to do a "Day Ride" on the following Dates:
2 & 30 October, 20 & 27 November plus 11 December.
