President’s Report – October 2017
On Sunday 17th September we lost a good friend, fellow Club member & our Treasurer Jol Dunn. It was a great honour for me to be asked by Jol’s wife Jane, to speak at Jol’s service on Monday 25th September.
I was equally proud of the number of Club members who attended to show their respect to Jol, which was not unexpected considering the esteem in which we all held Jol.
Jol will be greatly missed by us all. Ride in Peace mate.
As you are aware Jol chose our charity raffle recipient – Fight MND – and tickets are still available for the draw on the night of the General Meeting 15th November 2017.
Forget the prizes, support the cause & if you win that’s a bonus!
Let’s do Jol proud and raise the targeted amount of $2000.
To finish off 2017 the Club has organised a Christmas breakup BBQ at the Rowsley Community Hall. This will be a great event and a great occasion to catch up with fellow members. Make sure you put the date in your diary and come along.

November General Meeting will be a cracker with our swap meet, member guest speaker and raffle draw. No door entry on the night and the usual gourmet supper, don’t miss it.
We have now adopted a buddy system on all club rides. How this works is that at the ride briefing you choose a buddy that you will look out for during the ride. You don’t have to ride with your “buddy”, just make sure at regrouping, morning tea stops & lunch you eye-ball each other to ensure that each is still on the ride.
Never leave the ride unless you have told someone of your intention to do so – best way to depart from a ride is to stop and inform the Tail End Charlie (or the ride leader at the commencement of the ride if you know you are going to depart before the finish)
Let’s always keep it safe and look out for each other at all times.
