    Hi Noelene

    I have just updated the route sorry.  We won't need to stop for lunch but we most likely will be having a coffee/morning tea in Redesdale. 

    Would love you still to be able to join us though.

    Cheers Julie

    I have now checked and there are still places for 3pm on Sat May 21 for tickets to Graceland Exhibition at the Bendigo Art Gallery but you must buy your own tickets please.

    Make sure you have the correct date and time as there are strictly NO exchanges.

    If you are still thinking about joining this ride you will need to book your own accommodation now.  We had limited rooms available due to high tourism in Bendigo and now Election Day.

    We are hoping to book the Exhbition for 3pm and you will all need to purchase your own ticket as there is no group booking discounts.  I will update this shortly to confirm that time.

    Dinner information for Saturday evening will be provided shortly.

    Please mark your attendance for the Breakfast on Sunday morning also.



    Hi Mark

    You need to open the Event's link and it will be there, it just hasn't come up on the home page yet.

    Cheers Julie

    URGENT Please mark your attendance if you are definitely coming to this event.  Accommodation is very limited Bendigo is a busy city.

    I have on hold 3 share rooms at the Eaglehawk Motel until WEDNESDAY 27 April.  If you want to book a share room please let me know a.s.a.p. Once those rooms go you will have to find your own accommodation sorry.

    2 x twin singles at $120 ($60 p/p)

    1 triple at $125 (2 people only to share $62.50 p/p)

    I have emailed everyone who has said they are coming or interested.

    Also please mark your attendance on the Bendigo Breakfast event so Russel knows who many seats to book.

    Cheers Julie
