Ride to Griffith, 12/13/14/15 October 2018
For the ride to Griffith, riders will assemble at the park in Yarra Glen on Friday, 12th October, from 0745 for departure by 0800 sharp. Please have a full tank before departure. The ride will proceed via Merton to Euroa for morning tea and Tocumwal for lunch. Arrival at Griffith should be around 4.30pm. The remainder of the afternoon is free time to enjoy prior to dinner. Dinner will be at the Griffith Leagues Club and we will be joined here by members of the MIA Branch.
On Saturday, there will be a flying day at the Temora Aviation Museum, featuring the War Birds. This is a special event and I will require expressions of interest from participants as we will need to buy tickets when booking. So it is imperative that I know early if you want to go. On Sunday, for those that are interested, I will do a group booking for the Altina Wildlife Park. Other than that, there will be a choice of other activities of your own choosing. This weekend coincides with the Citrus Sculptures so it will be a busy weekend. There may be organized rides around the Griffith area, escorted by members of the MIA Branch subject to their availability, taking in some of the local sights and perhaps a winery tour or two if you wish. Saturday night dinner (yet to be confirmed) but may be at another a local restaurant.
Sunday night dinner will be “take away night” and party in the courtyard at the motel.
On Monday morning we will depart Griffith at 0800 sharp and make our way back home. We will return via Shepparton and we propose to have lunch at the Harston Hall, catered by the Tatura CWA who put on a great spread last time. If anyone wishes to extend their trip and go elsewhere after the weekend, feel free to do so.
For accommodation, a number of rooms at the Acacia motel in Griffith have been block booked in the name of Yarra Ranges Ulysses. However ride participants must book their own rooms and pay their own deposit if required:

Once you have booked your room, please let me know so I can put you on my list so I have numbers for lunch and dinner bookings as required. This is important, so please book early and let me know ASAP.
I will require all your details for the ride log BEFORE departure, so please advise name, Ulysses No., Bike details, Rego No., phone number and emergency contact number at time of booking
