This Months President’s Report: – 


Another AGM has gone by.  It was good to see so many turn up for it.  I would like to thank everyone for another year as your President.  I hope you all enjoyed Rick’s talk about what we have to do and the councils side of applying for the alcohol license. Don’t forget the staging post coming up and our mid-winter party.

–  Shayne


Sadly I wrote out a jolly fine news letter then shagged up when I attempted to save it, whilst waiting for Shayne’s Presidential report. Mean while I had burned all my notes so some of this news letter maybe hit and miss. Lucky for me most of you were at the AGM and will know more than I do.

Well as you can see from Shayne’s report he has been returned as president for another year.

–   Vice President; Tash Port.

–   Treasurer; Liz Buckingham.

–   Secretary; Malx Penty.

–   Sherif; Hilton Rathbone,

–   Deputies; Billy Michelle

–   News Letter editor; Kerry O’Rourke.

We have a very strong committee with a goodly flush of new young blood. The Staging Post 19th to 21st May, a very popular annual event. !9 klms North of Cheviot cabins and Dormatories available. Bernie will be taking the support vehicle with club booze. Several members will be riding up on the Friday and know doubt some will be going up on Saturday, Liz Buckingham for one.

Bernie the road runner will be able to tell you what time the group are leaving.

The Brass Monkey 2nd to 4th June, no doubt a group of our members will be braving the cold. If you are let the road runner know so he can put a group together. Much better to ride with your buddies.

Club ride to Albury Tavern 25th of June, leaving from Empire Hotel 12.00 am.

You may remember a band called “Libranz”who performed at one of our rallies. Well they have contacted us through facebook and wish to play again for us. They now perform under the name of “ Devils Handbrake” They will be performing at the Pleasant Point Hotel July the 1st and have invited us to come along and check them out. Some of you may wish to make a night of it then crash at my place.

Mean time rego on hold and bikes on the trickle charger,

This Months Joke: – 

A man returns home a day early from a business trip. It’s after midnight. While en-route home, he asks the cabby if he would be a witness, because the man suspects his wife is having an affair, and he wants to catch her in the act. For $100, the cabby agrees. Quietly arriving home, the husband and cabby tip toe into the bedroom. The husband switches on the lights, yanks the blanket back and there is his wife, naked as a jay bird, with a man, totally nude also. The husband puts a gun to the naked man’s head.

The wife shouts, “WAIT…Don’t do it! I lied when I told you I inherited all that money.

–   HE paid for that Porsche I gave you.

–   HE paid for your new 25 ft. Ranger Fishing Boat.

–   HE paid for your Football season tickets.

–   HE paid for our house at the lake.

–   HE paid for your Golf Trip to St Andrews and your new 4 x 4.

–   HE paid for our country club membership and he even pays the monthly dues.

And because of HIM, I can put an extra $2,000 in our checking account each month!”

Shaking his head from side-to-side, the husband lowers the gun. He looks over at the cabby and says, ‘What would YOU do’?

The cabby thought for a moment and replied, ‘I’d cover him with that blanket, before he catches a cold.’
