UlyssesWednesday, June 8 was a bleak, drear, coldand dismal day so the decision was made to stay home and enjoy the warm fire.However,11 bods turned up for a coffee at Billy’s that morning and chatted for a couple of hours, only moving on to let the lunch time crowd in.

It was good to see Alan Tye there looking well after a new range of treatment.Saturday morning was much the same and only a few came along to Meet and Greet, but Princess and Bob the Bugler were there tuckinginto their customary muffins with great gusto.

Sunday wasn’t a bad day and one or two small groups took advantage of a reasonably fine day and toured the district.It wasn’t an official club ride, but that doesn’t matter, go for a ride if the conditions are right and you can spare the time.

This Sunday we will be heading to Culcairn to meet up with Albury Wodonga branch and then following them back to Wagga,where they will beputting on a barbecue lunch in the Botanic gardens. There will be a small fee for our share of the tucker.

The ride to Culcairn and other places will leave McDonalds Car Parkin Edward Street, at 9.30am. Wednesday rides also leave from Billy’s at 9.30am.

Our next branch meeting is at the Radio Club Roomsin Small Street, at 7.30pm Tuesday, June 21. We will have a complimentary cauldron of hot soup on hand to warm you up.

Next Monday, June 20 is the International Ride to Work Day. This was started in the US25 years ago by a not-for-profit organisation to recognise the motorcycle as a means of transport and its importance in the community. Last year there were 8 million bikes took part in the US and an estimated 1 million in other parts of the world.

So next Monday ride your bike to work and if you don’t work, like me on the scrap heap, then ride to the shops, doctor, dentist, psychiatrist, or local coffee shop.

Thursday’s vets stableford event went to John Burkinshaw with 25 pts, from Tony Brunskill, Peter Kirkman and Don Painter 24 pts, followed by Danny McIntyre and Roy Sanders on 23 pts.There’s no doubt the ladies copped the worst of the weather during what was a very wet week, with both their comps being reduced to just nine holes. Una Pocock handled Tuesday’s conditions well for a respectable 41 nett in the stroke event, a shot better than Gloria Vonarx, with Betty Bruckner taking third place with 42 ½ nett, while Denise Avramovic topped the putting comp with just 12 putts.

Friday’s stableford comp saw another small field, and it was Denise Avramovic’s turn to master the dreadful conditions as she put together 17 hard-earned points to collect the main voucher.
