Garry's Charity Ride

Bikes lined up at Mercer Rd ready to start the Charity Ride.
The Hospice charity ride is always a great day out and a wonderful fundraiser for such an important cause.

There was a good turn-out at our meeting point and the weather was nice. Great to see Glen Osborne joining us. He lives in Tasmania but he was visiting his parents in Denmark.

Robert Boyes explained the route for this morning: Mercer Road, Lower King Road, Hunton Road, South Coast Hwy, Willyung Road, Rocky Crossing Road, Menang Drive, Link Road, South Coast Hwy to Marbelup Road and then to the Elleker store for our coffee break.

Next we headed off to Garry Taylor's place for lunch. There were beautiful hamburgers made by Garry and sausages and lots of nice salads and rolls to turn it into a real feast. Gazebos had been set up which was great because at one stage it started to rain. Everyone was enjoying their lunch while catching up with other club members.

After we had eaten it was time for the auction. A beautiful key holder made by Chester, some motorbike boots and a ham were auctioned off and all the money went into the charity tin.

 Every one keeping a close eye on Garry as he makes the winning toss.
Then it was time to toss some coins. A big bottle of red wine, donated by the Little Grove store was put on the table and we could all buy 50 cent pieces, put your initials on and try to toss the coin as close as possible to the bottle of wine.

Conferring on proximity.
Garry Blake won, I am pretty sure he or Raelene won last year too! Well done.

It was a great day and everyone had a good time. Thanks heaps to Garry T for organising everything, it was another great success. A $1000 cheque was presented to the hospice manager after the event.
