CORRESPONDENCE IN & OUT
Thank you from Foodshare for our Donation of food and money. Thank you to members for your support.
Hopefully everyone had a good xmas and new year break.
We had a pretty good roll up to the xmas lunch by the river even though the weather was a bit off.
Since the last meeting I have been on some good rides, the day to Geelong revival was a good roll up, and some of the Sunday rides have been well attended, I am looking forward to the ride to remember on 3rd feb in Ararat
Looking forward to seeing more of you on the Sunday rides.
