9 DEC - SATURDAY SMELL THE ROSES DAY.
10.30am Start. Why don’t we have a motorcycle run on this day? Just a coastal run for the worn out,
leaky, smelly, wobbly, weary units, and of course the old bikes as well! The starting point will be the
clubrooms, but the destination will remain a deeply guarded secret until departure on the day, but it will
definitely include coffee and food for sure. People are welcome to come along in a car, but how will you
ever keep up with a 1922 motorcycle? Oh, that’s right, you just follow the blue smoke trail.
P.S. I promise not to crash again. Ray van Galen

14 DEC - THURSDAY TINKER DAY.
A 10.30am start from the clubrooms. We are off to Ken and Ethel Sheppard’s for our annual Christmas
Tinker Day at Moriac. Please don’t arrive there before 11.30am: they need set-up time. This is the most
popular of all our tinker days and we have all the Sheppard family to thank for that.
Please note: participants are asked to help out by bringing a salad OR a sweet for us all to
share. Please ring Barb van Galen on 5278 9368 or 0408 664 537 to let her know what you are bringing.
Please bring your own mug, thermos, and special lunch if you need to, chair, and sense of laughter.
