So we are meeting in Glenbrook Park at the shops? Or Glenbrook Oval at the skate park?

craked's picture

Have ridden at Knapsack before but didn't know my way around ,so will be good to ride with locals.

The Brown Hornet's picture

Glenbrook Park at the shops sounds dandy.

BM Epic's picture

No can do big fella, this is daughters birthday and dance concert!

Chuck's picture

Bummer Todd. Moggio, make sure you bring a map as some will expect us to know the way.

moggio's picture

I know the way really well. Trust me I don't get lost there even if it is only from having a virtual map in my head..... only problem is I ride the place horribly, slowly and walk lots of bits, so I am a crummy guide Smiling

Between us all there is a lot of knowledge on the place so we will be fine...just means we will have to all be social and talk a lot to cover any confusions.

craked's picture

my daughter has a big swim meet at homebush both days that weekend ,so no riding for me! Sad

Andy Bloot's picture

I think we worked out before that Mel's b'day is on the same day as mine
So that is making this iffy for me as well
Will probably not know till the day
Depending on how my head feels
And what M has planned for me

moggio's picture

Its only a morning thing Andy... lots of time to hit the liquid pot pourii later.

Isildur's picture

Still not sure yet, I've got a work X-mas part on the night before, so may not be in a state to ride. That said the party is Laser-Tag & Dinner, so I may very well in fit to ride after all Eye-wink

Ian_A's picture

Ill make it out for the BBQ if nothing else. I've got an engagement party the night before and also a baby 'naming day' (whatever that is) in the arvo before that. Both served with a side of the amber temptations. Maybe ill be deso that night for the first time in a fair while and be fit to ride the next day.

The Brown Hornet's picture

Farkinell, I'm out. I'm sitting at the computer at work and glance over at the roster on the wall and it's my second day shift. How could this happen? What an oversight. Heads will roll, believe you me.

Andy Bloot's picture

Seems a few are iffy for this date

What about the following weekend of the 19th
I could make that - anyone else keen to re-schedule?

BM Epic's picture

19th is good for me!

Chuck's picture

19th is good (at the moment).

ChopStiR's picture

Thats fine for me. Like the 19th better actually because it will be post council meeting.

Andy Bloot's picture

What do you guys reckon about a change to the Sunday after

BM Epic's picture

JP will probably get a day off for it!..so he is a maybe!

Isildur's picture

I think that works better for me as well. That said, I don't want it changed just on my account, only if it's better for the whole.

craked's picture

I would like to attend this ride if it were on the 19th

moggio's picture

So seems to be a lot more interest in the 19th.

Does anyone have any objections to changing this to the 19th Dec ??

J the B's picture

I don't think I'll be able to make the 19th, but if it's better for everyone else, go ahead and change it. I'll be definitely looking for a ride next weekend though - this wet weather's driving me crazy.

moggio's picture

Yeah if it gets moved we should maybe organise a Sunday morning Lazo or something as a group ride.

Brian's picture

See how I go closer to the date but I should be able to make this one. That is of course if you are allowing ring ins Eye-wink

Isildur's picture

Looks like I'm in for this one. Will be good to see how the "accepted" loop goes, as I think I do it different to everyone else...

See you on Sunday!

ChopStiR's picture

Anyone is welcome Brian, its always good to meet new faces.

Andrei74's picture

Hey boyz (and shelas)

Might have to join you all on this one, haven't been on the bike for toooooo long.

Andrei

Brian's picture

I can't make this now.

The Brown Hornet's picture

OK, forecast is for cloudy with the chance of isolated showers developing and a top of 25. Sounds perfect!

Snag sangers and soft drink supplied for $4-$5. As far as catering goes I'm running by the numbers who have RSVP'd only. If you want to rock up and haven't put yourself in, please do so.

REMEMBER- the meeting point is at Glenbrook Park across the road from the shops, where we'll have the post ride BBQ.

See you tomorrow.

moggio's picture

Thanks JP for organising this!!!

Isildur's picture

Heya Mate,
Jo is coming down for the BBQ after the riding, so count her in to the catering if it's not too late. Plus I may probably have another mate coming up from Sydney, so better add him in! (I'll eat his share anyway if he doesn't rock up!).

See you tomorrow!

The Brown Hornet's picture

No worries.

craked's picture

I also have a mate joining us ,allthough he will need to go early and wont stay for BBQ.
Is the meeting point the carpark in ross st or the one in park st? I dont no this area at all

BM Epic's picture

Carpark across the road from the shops!!...see you fellas there!

The Brown Hornet's picture

Meeting point is the parking lot on Park St acroos from the shops and near the tennis courts.

stephen's picture

Just got the ok for this. I am coming along now for the ride but goto bail before 12 so no lunch for me Thanks

Stephen

moggio's picture

Thanks for everyone coming to this, was a great day. Really good to see people up for a social ride as I think that is an important aspect of what BMORC is about as well.

A big thanks to The Brown Hornet for his work and supplies on organising this.. great effort!!!

Just found I had a leach on me that fell off up at the shops and left my sock filled with blood... little charmers.

The Brown Hornet's picture

A thoroughly enjoyable day.

Good to meet so many new people and hang out with the usual suspects.

Thanks.

craked's picture

thanks to all the BMORC guys for fun ride this morning on the great techy single tracks of Knapsack,lots of banter and some good tests of skill all ending in a sausage feast at the park ,thanks to JP for organising this event and I look forward to more rides in the area in the future Smiling
cheers
Craig

Isildur's picture

Thanks for all that came along, and especially thanks to JP for the snags & soft-drinks at the end! Was great to meet a few more people, and I love social, chatting rides. Plenty of time to rest!

My legs are buggered after all that techy climbing. Pretty stoked about getting that root climb on the left line, but I'm still to get the loose twisty climb out of the gully... Next time Gadget... Next time Eye-wink ;)

BM Epic's picture

Yeah top day fellas, some points of interest, Gab getting the root and rock gully, first time i have ever seen somebody get that line...nice work!...Great to see Tim getting his riding happening, that trance is a bewdy!
It looked funny seeing Mark using gears..or was he?, John-Paul turning into a riding animal with that single speed!..Also, you dont do many rides in the presence of a Slingshot, what a bike!
Biggest surprise/ or statistic of the day..absolutely no stacks!!!

ChopStiR's picture

Another thanks for the day, Higlight was the Lunch! Laughing out loud

Chuck's picture

Great day!! Really enjoyed the ride and the company.

Thanks for the snags JP.
