  1. It seems as if I may have stuffed up which isn't the first time and defianantly wont be the last ... I have been iformed that the newcastle toy run is on this weekend so will put this on hold till further notice and a better date comes up !!!! bugger

    (If this is in the wrong position to post this topic please mods move it to apropriate one or inform me of place to put it Thanks)

    After a recent trip to walcha then the oxley highway by newcastle riders a few of us have decided that this road becasue of its 10 out of 10 rating needs to be enjoyed numerous times in one weekend so I have looked into accomadation at Gingers creek which is smack bang i the middle of the oxley "twisty" highway.
    So this is the plan Saturday the 2nd of december we will leave newcastle early and ride to thunderbolts way to walcha for lunch , then continue to oxley highway and stop at gingers creek the night before waking and riding the oxley a few times and returning home via thunderbolts way again.
    As accomadation is quiet popular at the moment I need poeple who are so intersted that they will comit to booking, myself and Brett are going and will book accomadation shortly as not to miss out if your 100% sure I can book it for you but will require payment other wise you can still come but will have to book for yourself closer to the date when your 100% sure.
    The owners of the place are going to give us $85 per night deal which includes Bed Dinner and breaky and they are willing to do this for us for any number of people not just a grou booking more details can be found here.

    Any questions don't hesitate to ask me the more people we get on this ride the better new people and veterans all welcome will be great to sit around at the end of the day and have dinner and a chat and an ale ( If there is no interest I will still be doing this ride on the dates mentioned so any one can come along at last minute if they can still get accomadation)

  12. Maybe Tims Idea isn't half bad a day trip back there but from last time it will have to be an early start so that we are not returning after dark any one keen on this one sat or sun
     
     Top
  13. Hell yeah!! I think we are missing a few occasional riders by not posting these rides in the calendar, so if we can get a little more interest in either sat or sun next week i will post it on an agreed day, I'm good for both. and an early start would be needed to make the most of it.


    So, who's best for what day???

    And, if we have a bit more info on the toy run, we could post it on the calendar and maybe have our own little Newy Netriders contingent, I'd rather be riding shoulder to shoulder with someone i knew!!!
