Fellow CAMWESTies,

?????????????????????????????? my apologies to you & thanks to Rob & Ian, my proof readers for pointing out that I omitted the date for the next Ride to Riverstone Festival meeting. It will be this coming Wednesday night, 30/09/2009. 


It must be C.R.A.F.T ( Can't remember a flamin' thing)

Hi John

Congratulations on this. I hope CAMWESTies will get behind it. [Apart from my advancing years and lack of energy, I will be in Mildura on the date of the recon ride, so will just wish you and your supporters well]. I have noted 15th May for 2010 and will see what transpires. John, there is one peculiarity on the message --- namely, the material in red. Is that intended to be there? If so, it needs a date.? Cheers

Ian

Fellow CAMWESTies,

???????????????????????????????? we have been asked to assist the Riverstone & District Lions Club with the running of the Ride to Riverstone Festival in 2010. This ride will help celebrate the Bi-Centennary of the settlement of Riverstone as well as raise funds for the Children's Cancer Research Fund. The Festival will be held on 15 May 2010, but there is much to be done in the planning stages for this ride. It is hoped to have several distances available to ride including 25,50,75 & 100 Km. 

?

Several routes have been identified, thanks to the great efforts of Rob Kemp?and will probably traverse the Blacktown, Hills & Hawkesbury Shires. It is hoped the ride will continue in years to come & will equal the Tour de Hills in popularity.

?

The event will require the services of over 100 volunteers as route marshals as well as on ride support, first aid & sweep vehicles. Organisers will be approaching Rural Fire Services and State Emergency Services Personnel in the area to act as route Marshals, but it is anticipated that these areas will fall short of our requirements.

?

If you are interested in becoming part of this great event, please feel free to come along to our meetings or join us on a reconnaissance ride of the route.

?

The next meeting is at the Riverstone ?Community Church, Hamilton & Garfield Rds East - the usual venue, at the usual time?7.30pm for?7.45pm start.

?

The reconnaissance ride will be held on 31 OCTOBER 2009 commencing at the Riverstone Veterinary Clinic at 8.00am - 50Km to 70km.?Easy pace and a stop for refreshments/ coffee guaranteed.

?

This is a great opportunity to promote cycling in Sydney's West.

?

We will be surveying the "Ride to Riverstone Festival" route with CAMWEST and Riverstone Lions on the 31/10/09, the day before the Gong Ride. Probably about 50 - 70 km, starting at RVH probably at a similarly civilised time to the Wyong alternative the following day. If anyone's interested, they'll be welcome. See the best that Hawkesbury/B Hills and Blacktown have to offer. Pace will be easy and terrain relatively flat to undulating. Coffee/food stop somewhere, guaranteed.?
