Following along the same lines as previous years a Saturday-Sunday ride has been organised.

Accommodation at the caravan park is your responsibility. Be sure to mention Melbourne Ulysses as I have reserved all beds until mid- January.
If you require refreshments for the relaxing afternoon they are available (cold) at Bonnie Doon lunch stop.
a cooked breakfast is available at the caravan park (Sunday) for $10.
A film has been organised (outdoor) for Saturday night. If you have a favourite C.D. we may be able to include that.
Over the past few years this week-end has proved to be relaxing and enjoyable.

$19 per person

Due  to some "oversight" by the proprietor of Swanpool General Store Saturday night's dinner will be kindly catered for by Donna and Peter at the Midland Holiday Park.
Dinner will be in the form of a smorgasbord with two meats, multiple vegetables and a sweet (much better than a hamburger and sausage roll which were offered at the store).
To compensate for the double booking (the other function being a music night with other motorcyclists of unknown affiliations) we were offered free admission to that function.
As it is not along the relaxed nature of our previous Swanpool week-end I declined the offer and indicated I would not be returning to that venue in the future.
Every other aspect of the week-end is unchanged.
Sorry for any inconvenience; it will hopefully make for a better outcome.
Ron Blomley.
