I thought it was because SA didn't want to pay for it they gave up the NT to the commonwealth.   :Stirpot

Any chance Kulgera NT will be on the list for 2021?
We can add Kulgera into the mix, but will probably need WendyL and NTRebel to set the date to give them the best chance of getting there.   All these interstate rides are dependant upon whatever Covid restrictions might be in place at the time.

Thankfully I have long service leave up my sleeve because I think I have exhausted all my annual leave for this year's Kulgera, Mudgee and Mudgee for next march.

Just checked public holidays for 21 and NT and QLD both have long weekend 1/2/3 of May which would get us out of the Christmas and Easter mayhem and allow Queenslanders to attend if they want.

Have a ride to Darwin in the planning and was hoping to meet up with some members along the way. Hopefully this Covid thing will be under control and all restrictions will be lifted by then.

Finke desert race is on 6/7/8 of june and a lot of those guys stick around for a couple of weeks after and play tourist so you would need to book any accomodation early.

Your optimism amazes me.  :-[

Will be watching to see how this pans out
Might be able to meet up at the three ways
I am also watching border crossing with planning a lap in mind

For those into their schnitzels, this might be a way to work out riding destinations. The Advertiser is running Apollo on the best schnitzels in SA.

We've done the Sevenhill Hotel, 19 to go!

Here are the suggestions so far, and  sometime in November Shillas and I will sort through them and put together a program for 2021.   Please add any more suggestions and perhaps inidcate those that you favour.

Quorn (Overnight)
Coobowie
Arthurton
Edithburgh
Swan Reach Hotel
NatRally Mudgee March 2021, and  Not the National Rally in SA
Billy Mac's Naracoorte
Port PacDonnell Victoria Hotel (Overnight)
Tumby Bay (Overnight)
Pinnaroo
Elliston (Overnight)
Golden Grain Tavern Wunkar
Tailem Bend Motorsport Park Cafe
Greenman Inn at Ashbourne
Monkey Nut Cafe Lyndoch
Pretoria Hotel Mannum
Kulgera on the May Long Weekend?

Following Shillas's suggestion, do we have support for making some of the rides on a Sunday?  I reckon it's a good idea, but I can't get to them.
We'll see if we can shedule a ride once a month.

A few Sunday rides wouldn't hurt, perhaps some people can't make Saturday rides due to sport, grandparent duties and the like and a Sunday run would give them an opportunity to join in. Now retired, I'm not too fussed either way.

I'm more in Pete's boat.   Saturdays generally are easier for me to get to.

STinky Pete and myself have gone through the list of suggestions for RTE locations for 2021 and we've tried to avoid school holiday dates, except where no choice (like January).

Us South Aussies are ahead of NSW & Vic in the RTE planning, but seems to be a move for a Silverton RTE in NSW, which could become a tri-state RTE.

Our Naracoorte RTE is a potential SA / Vic RTE.

If the Welshmen and Mexicans can pull their fingers out, we may be able to get a more coordinated calendar together.

All subject to COVID-19.

This is the draft calendar we've come up with and has a mix of Saturdays and Sundays. All subject to feedback:


January      Greenman Inn, Ashbourne – Sunday 10th
February     Pretoria Hotel, Mannum – Saturday 20th
March         NatRally at Mudgee
                 Tumby Bay (Overnight) for SA's Not the NatRally Venue to be confirmed – Saturday 13th
April           Tailem Bend Motorsport Park Café – Saturday 3rd. However, if there is a motosport event being held that weekend, swap the June RTE with Lyndoch?
May            Kulgera, NT – Sunday 2nd
                  Elliston (Overnight) Venue to be confirned – Saturday 8th (Two for the price of one if doing Kulgera and wanting to make it a holiday?)
June           Monkey Nut Cafe, Lyndoch – Sunday 20th - Or April 3 if event at The Bend - Or Tri-State Silverton? I see JD & Chippy are already planning to head there.
July            Edithburgh Hotel (Overnight)  - Saturday 24th
August        Swan Reach Hotel  - Sunday 15th
September  Quorn (Overnight) Venue to be confirmed – Saturday 11th
October       Billy Mac's Naracoorte – Possible Vic/SA o/night? – Saturday 16th
November   Golden Grain Tavern Wunkar – Sunday 21st
December   Robin Hood Hotel Strathalbyn (across the road from the Kenny Blake Motorcycle Memorial Statue) – Saturday 11th

Cheers

Hopefully 2020 won't repeat itself and all of these go ahead, although part of me will be disappointed to not go to Tumby Bay if that is the case.

Just a couple of thoughts for possible fine tuning of the calendar.

Saturday April 3 is Easter Saturday, I suspect most SA riders will be off doing family things.

Sunday November 21, Wunkar Golden Grain Tavern - it might be better to swap to somewhere mid-year - perhaps less risky for stinking hot weather (but the weather is the luck of the draw on the day and probably not worth fiddling with).
