Hi all,
Mafia looks good, Valerie & I will be there.
Cheers
Neil :slvr13 :like
N and V


That makes it (so far) as attending:

   *   Michael & Helen - booked double room, not willing to share remaining single bed

   *   Nigel - booked twin share with ppopeye.

   *   ppopeye - booked twin share with Nigel.

   *   Neil & Val - I'll assume a room with twin beds.

That still leaves two rooms with twin beds. 

Anyone interested in visiting the Gippsland Vehicle Collection?  More details here: http://www.gippslandvehiclecollection.org.au/. 
It's a short walk from the Macalister Hotel, and could be a way to spend an hour or three before riding home.

From the website:  OPEN: Friday to Monday 10am - 4pm, Adults $10 - Concession $8

Looks like Neil, Val, Gary Helen and I would be in for $8, Nigel you pay $10.   If we get more numbers, we might get a group discount.

Cheers,  Williamson (AKA Michael)

Very nice, but out of my price range.  I'd have to sell the ST13, the RAV4, the Mazda6, and the life partner.  There was a nice ST13 and sidecar on Gumtree a few weeks back, it was around half the price of the Goldwing, and still a bit expensive for me.

I'd miss the ST, RAV and Mazda ......

 :whistle

Bump!

Slight change of plans with Helen and me (Helen staying at home, I'll be solo).   This opens up some room options.  I can vacate the double room and leave it for Denis & Di or Neil & Val, as long as I have someone to share with, even if it means that I have the single bed in the double room.

Please post or PM your thoughts.
Cheers,  Williamson (AKA Michael)

Three to a room, aye!  Just don't tell anyone.  I'll call 'em tomorrow and check what's what with the rooms and beds.

Just called the Macalister, spoke with Tom.  All rooms have been reserved of OzSTOC, but not all have a name booked against them.

One room is booked for Michael & Helen, but as mentioned earlier Helen won't be coming, so I'll share that with Denis and Di.

Another room is booked for Nigel & Gary.

And another room is booked for Neil & Val.

So that leaves 2 x twin rooms left, up for grabs, unused - at this stage.  If nobody takes either of these, I'll take one and leave Denis and Di alone so that they don't have to put up with my noises.

I have not booked a "group" tour of the motor museum, as I don't think seven is a group.

Finally, anyone up for side stand and foot peg scraping ride through the hills between Powelltown and Hill End?   Or will I just ride via Croydon, Bayswater and Emerald and pick-up a few hangers on?

Aim to leave St Helena around 11:00am (earlier or later if needed to suit the masses).

Hi Michael, as I though the lady just knew they were booked but wasn't looking at book in page. All is well that ends well. We are looking forward to getting away, Hope the weather is better than has been as bucketing down at the moment. We are leaving and joining Neil Val Inverlock. Denis Diane.

If there are any late additions, book yourself a room, when talking to the Macalister, tell 'em you are with the OzSTOC Motorcycle group.

"Always something going on" now there's a quote of quotes........Great ride.. always Fantastic to catch up the Ozstoc family. Had a ball. Managed to stay on the south side of drinks, and learnt a bit about rugby on the way, thanks, Neil.
Big thanks to all, always a laugh to be had. Top Weekend.  :wht11
