Saturday December 2 Cycling Christmas PartyEwingsdale

The Christmas Party at Ewingsdale has been happening for many years. We have tried to have it elsewhere but the clamour of disapproval for a change has been deafening. So once again we have a similar programme to previous with one or two new events that hopefully will surprise and delight and embarrass!

Cycle into Byron for morning coffee and then to Suffolk Park, Broken Head for ice cream and return to Ewingsdale for a dip in the pool, a bbq and a game of donkey table tennis followed by lots of live music featuring most of the club’s top musicians including our bush band so there will be dancing. Being Christmas there will be other routes decided on the day so all can enjoy a cycle ride. Open to all club cyclists and their member partners. Please bring meat or equivalent to bbq and nominate a plate of something to share (nibbles, salads, bread, or dessert) on registration   Leader Ian 66847733


Sunday December 10 Club Christmas Party Clarrie Hall Dam Dairy

Crams Farm is a stunningly beautiful venue and we will have a great day.  The Dairy will be available to us exclusively all day so we will have plenty of time to walk, bird watch and kayak.  This year we are asking participants to bring a Christmas decoration, the bigger the better, as the object of the exercise is to “Deck the Dairy”. Catering will be as usual, i.e. bring a salad or dessert to share. BYO drinks and meat if required (there are bbqs).   If you have a Christmas tablecloth you can bring, that would be great. As in previous years, our kayaking members will be bringing kayaks to Clarrie Hall Dam as part of the club's Christmas festivities ( to be confirmed).The club bush band will supply the music so bring your dancing shoes.

Please contact Steve 0414312917 0266840378  to book in and arrange your food contribution



Friday December 15 to Sunday December 17 Border Ranges Camp

We will be camping at Sheepstation Creek whilst the rest of the world will be doing their Christmas Shopping. Maximum daylight hours will make this a great time of the year to camp. Sites are available for tents, campervans and car camping. You will need to bring drinking water. The cost is $6 pp per night. Plus park entry fees. Arrive Friday afternoon and set up camp. We will walk to nearby swimming holes in the rock pools on the Rosewood Loop before returning to camp for happy hour. On Saturday we will enjoy walking along the Booyong Track stopping for a dip again in one of the rock pools near camp. Distance 10 km. On Sunday we will hike along the Brindle Creek Track (12 km return) in pristine rainforest, past waterfalls to the Antarctic Beech picnic area for lunch before returning back to the cars. Some experienced walkers may want to walk down the creek. Both on track walks are Grade 2.  Leader Kirsten 0413535950
