« on: October 01, 2020, 07:54:13 AM »
It time to start thinking about a program for 2021, so please post any ideas that you have, and Shillas and I will put together a program for 2021.

Have tried the hotels at Coobowie and Edithburgh.

The Edithburgh Hotel would be my pick in that part of Yorke Peninsula.

So what if I don't know what Armageddon means? It's not the end of the world. And if it was, you'd find reds are by far undoubtedly & unquestionably the best.

I almost wrote Edithburgh but decided it was too close to Coobowie.  I saw some good reviews of Coobowie on the gram a couple of weeks ago so thought I'd suggest it, but I'd be happy with either of those.

Just a start off from me:

Victoria Hotel in Port MacDonnell - overnight & possible (COVID-19 willing) Interstater - late in the year?
Either Pinnaroo Hotel of Golden Grain Hotel in Pinnaroo
Tumby Bay - Overnight

Now that the Wallaroo/Lucky Bay ferry is back in SA (Adelaide for some refitting) and hopefully soon to be plying the waters between Yorke and Eyre Peninsula - Iím hopeful an overnight RTE to Elliston could be on the cards. If not an RTE Iím happy to plan a trip and throw it open to anyone who is interested.

And speaking of Golden Grain, there is the Wunkar Golden Grain Tavern at Wunkar - very worthy of our support.

2021 NatRally is 12-14th March, so we will pencil that in as well.
There are some good suggestions coming in, and places we haven't visited before.
I like the idea of a trip to Elliston, as its my stomping ground.
Somewhere close to Adelaide might get some interest from some of our members who we don't see very often.
The Pretoria at Mannum is a nice ride an always worth a visit.

I've often wondered if the hotel in Wunkar was open.

 :bl11. I'm wondering if the Tailem bend Motorsport park could be an option for lunch as it has a cafe-restaurant  and possibly afternoon tea at the Greenman (Ashbourne ) on the way home ..a nice trip through the hills for those going back to Adelaide !

I wanted to do the Greenman for a while now but didn't make it last year as I was overseas (as was Langers).  To be honest, I never even gave the motorsrport park at Elwomple a thought.

Stinky Pete did mentions somewhere close to Adelaide so I have been thinking about somewhere like that, but all the ones I thought of we had done before or have pencilled in this year.

The Greenman is a lovely location on a great road, and is well worth another visit.   :thumb

Well we can schedule one every month and see how we go. I sometimes think the timing of around 6 weeks makes it too long if you miss one.

But, in my opinion, we'll need to mix it up a bit between Saturday and Sunday, some may be 3 weeks between, others 5 weeks to try and cater for schedules.

Also, how many overnight RTEs are you interested in? There are currently 4 listed (Tumby Bay inc.), but some other suggestions could be overnight depending on rider's choice.
