With the annual Pink Ribbon Ride on the
calendar, we decided to have a
“think-tank” also a good excuse for coffee and cake, so Chris, Tammy,
Jo and myself got together & came up with a different format
for our ride this year.
The weather was brilliant on Sunday
just the kind of day we
all had been hoping for. It was a very “pink” gathering when we
all met at the info bay as there were a lot of interestingly decorated
bikes and people which all looked fantastic and went toward
creating a great atmosphere for the day.
Everyone generously paid their $15 for the day.

Our destination for lunch was The Princess
Royal Sailing Club in Little

had everything ready to go. A big thank you to them for doing this.
At our think-tank we had decided to have soup
and rolls, slices or
cake with coffee and tea, so we ended up with a delicious array of
soups and slices all prepared by generous club members. This seemed
to be a popular decision and was enjoyed by everyone.
We had a vast array of great prizes to
