          display on Stirling Terrace.
THE format for our premier Club event will be basically the same as last year. We are lucky enought to be using the facilities of the Albany Rifle Club, (just past the turn-off to the Wind-Farm, Frenchmans Bay Road) for the weekend.

It has a clean kitchen, hot showers and toilets facilities available. For camping or any enquiries for the weekend please ring: Garry Blake 0409 294 060, Ronnie Jellesma 9845 1278 or Bob Rees 9841 5501. Please note that a camping fee applies.

There is also a bar on-site that will be open from 5 p.m. – 12 p.m. Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday evening.

Motorcycle Display - Saturday morning

Stirling Terrace will be closed for non-motorcycle traffic as a safety precaution and as usual the line-up of bikes should be most interesting. We are also striking a metal badge again. Those entering the Hill Climb will get one in their packs. There will be some extras and these can be purchased for $15.

Afternoon Rally (Poker Run)

Once again this will be in the form of a Poker Run. Entries will only be taken on Stirling Terrace, Saturday morning, there will be no prior entries. The Poker Run is suitable for all motorcycles, no matter what size or age. There will be short and long courses to suit your bike. Entries will close at 11.45 am and the briefing will take place in Stirling Terrace at 12.20 pm. The first bike will be away shortly afterwards. Entry for the rally is $15 per person which entitles you to a poker hand and afternoon tea.

The Poker Run is open to any person with a road licensed motorcycle and a current license to ride. Pillions may also enter, cost is also $15 and this entitles you to a poker hand and afternoon tea. This year the rally will finish at the Albany Rifle Club with afternoon tea again donated by Dylan’s on the Terrace. Thanks Morris and Gwen. Help is always needed early on Saturday morning to secure and set up Stirling Terrace, so come along.

Saturday evening

This year’s meal will again be catered for by 3D Catering service. It will be a buffet-style dinner with a proposed menu of: Roasted Pork, Beef Shepherd’s Pie, Marinated Chicken Wings, Zucchini Bake (delicious and vegetarian) Cauliflower & Vegetable Cheese, Steamed Green Vegetables, Baked Vegetables, Gravy - Apple Sauce - Bread Rolls and dessert consisting of Sticky Date Pudding & Cream, Chocolate Cream Pavlova, Fresh Strawberry Kebabs.
