Monthly General Meeting

WEDNESDAY 15 November 2017 at 10.00 a.m.

At today’s Meeting we had Richard and Rosslyn Bushell telling us about “Riding our motor cycle around Australia”.  Richard and Rosslyn are a couple of “older” bikers who have taken to long distance motorcycle touring.  Richard took us on their journey around Australia and the many places they had visited on their adventures.  It was certainly true that their bike touring was about the journey and not the destination!
