There were basically four groups of riders heading for the Club’s annual wheatbelt pub weekend. The Friday crowd left from various parts for Quindanning Tavern, taking in a shed south of Kojonup that we visited several years ago. The guy had his own quarry and was making huge building blocks.
Then on the Saturday morning having a look at the old buildings and artefacts on a farm just north of Williams. Garry Taylor had put in time organising these places as well as arranging the Greenhills and Quindanning Taverns and we all appreciated it.
Then there was the Saturday Albany crew of five who did a 500km trip to get to Greenhills taking in the newly painted silos at Pingrup, Kulin, Corrigin etc. It was a headwind the whole way, but even so, it was a nice ride. Also there were riders from Perth who took the bitumen option and another group who preferred the challenge of dirt roads.
Greenhills is a great pub, the owners are very friendly and there was no complaints about the food. A fire was lit in the beer garden which was nice to sit around later in the evening.
After a continental breakfast it was time to head home. For the Albany crew it meant a welcome stop at John and Kerry’s place in Gnowangerup where Kerry had made some lovely biscuits. It was also an opportunity to have a look at the wood carvings that John had made, he’s a talented bloke.
Thanks again Garry for a great weekend.
