Just a short note to let you know what happened on Saturday with the BUGOFH meeting.
We had 4 attendees plus Alex Unwin from BNSW plus one interested apology.
It will be a social group, a chap named Bob from Guildford will lead rides each month.
A chap from near Liverpool keen to lead Over 50's rides.
Pauline Trainor will continue to attend Holroyid Steering Commitee meetings until we get
another interested member for that.
Efforts need to be made top advertise the rides outside of BNSW, such as local papers.
I will seek Council's assistance with this.
The social meetings will be "on the wheel". First gathering will be
7.30 am on Second Sunday in February, that's Feb 13th, at Merrylands
railway Station shopping centre ( western side )
Distance and direction to be decided on the day, but most likely
using the cycleways toward to Propsect Reserviour and Fairfield depending on who attends.
when it gets truly regular it can go into Push-On.
Then regularly each month, changing to 9.30 am from April to October ( same months as the
gate closures at the Reserviour.)
Full report for web page soon.

Seems like a good idea, Mark. I'd be interested to know how the new BUG
might relate to CAMWEST. Maybe we can discuss at the forthcoming BBQ.

As you probably know Anthony Pettit of BUGOFH is no longer active.
I understand BNSW would like to see BUG's in Western Sydney, and
personally I would like to see a BUG in this area in the future.
So as a member of Camwest and BNSW I am prepared to run a public meeting
in November to try and restart a BUG in Fairfield/Holroyd/Greystanes. I see
cyclists on the Canal Cycleway through Greystanes I can't believe we won't
people to make a BUG in the area.
I have been in contact with Pauline Trainor of Greystanes and she now takes
the BUGOFH seat
on Holroyd Council's Bicycle Steering Committee.
So on behalf of Camwest I would like to ask for your permission and support
in holding this public gathering. Also as a BNSW member I would also like
your permission to make the above statement on behalf of BNSW.
The aim of the meeting is to make a list of potential members, hopefully
get a new Secretary, and set up an email/phone chain amongst potential
so the group begins to operate as a normal BUG. I would achieve this by
taking the membership list
genetrated on the day and making copies and distributing it to all present.
The other aim of the meeting would be to set a date and time for a future
Neither Camwest nor I will not run this BUG, it must run itself. I will
probably be just a member of it
and provide assistance where needed.
I have chosen an open park to make access easier and less threatening than a
