PUT THE DATE IN YOUR DIARY / PLANNER - and book accommodation 

I am aware this conflicts with the National Rally in WA, however we still have longer daylight hours than later in the year.
This date is a week before Easter and the school holidays.   
Ride over Victoria's highest sealed road (Mt Hotham), cross the Tawonga Gap and stay overnight at Tawonga near Mt Beauty.
I plan to keep things simple and traditional and will stay north of the Princes Hwy this year with morning cuppa stop at Heyfield before lunch at Bruthen where we meet more participants. 
I  also plan to use some interesting side roads between Bruthen and Swifts Creek on the way up to Omeo.   
Everyone to arrange their own accommodation. Please do so early and they cannot hold large number s of room until the last minute.  
 
I have booked accommodation at Mountain Creek Motel, Tawonga and plan to dine at their restaurant on the Saturday night.  They even have a drying room!
They have a fully licensed restaurant on site
Please contact them direct and mention the Ulysses Booking for a better rate than advertised. 
 
I strongly recommend you ring and speak to them in person to arrange a room for your group
Phone numbers are:   +61 3 5754 4247 | 0447 779 350 and their email is  info@mountaincreekmotel.com.au   
They have rooms which can accommodate up to 4 people in separate beds  -
Return route planned via Myrtleford, Whitfield & Mansfield
 

I remind everyone that this is not a ride for the inexperienced or easily fatigued.  Day one is about 500 km and includes some quite challenging roads.  

Several members regularly break this up by heading into Gippsland on the Friday and meeting us at Bruthen for lunch on the Saturday.
