If there's any interest, I'm sure Marie and I can organise a BBQ (or other lunch) at our new abode after the trek to the mountain. Plenty parking and other room for bikes.

Sounds good Al,

Although would the family be interested?  At least we know we wouldn't be paying the Irish Pub's prices and we have the safety net of one beer too many, if that occurred.  It would be also good to know where your digs are for future reference.  

Happy to throw in a few dollars.  

Cheers, Dave.

I was intending to book a group but was holding off till a few more replies came in and to find out what Rosskko's family were doing that day.

Sorry I've been a bit slack boys but count me in for Rylstone and Gooloogong.

I recently had a message from RossKKo's sister to let us know that they are running a cancer fundraising event again this year in memory of Ross at Asquith Golf Club on Friday 29th July 2022 if anyone can make it. Some of us from close to Sydney were planning to go last time they ran this two years ago but were thwarted by Covid. More details on that closer to the time.

I have sent a message to let them know Rick has the ball rolling for 29th May this year and will post back here as soon as I hear anything back.

Cheers

Just received a message from RossKKo's family this evening that the 29th May suits them and that they are very appreciative of the way we continue to remember Ross in the way we do.

Thanks Rick G for getting things rolling.

Won't be online as the Feds don't do that. Wise choice after NSW stuffed it up last time they tried. (NSW have said that it won't be on for next year's general election either.)
Postal or pre-poll are your alternatives to voting on 21 May, and postal vote applications close on 18 May. Better get in sooner, as they have to be sent out, filled in by/on election day and received back by 3 June. You can apply online at https://www.aec.gov.au/election/pva.htm Happy voting.  Smile
(I work for the Electoral Commission around election times.)


Rick, please count me in for Rylstone and Gooloogong if I'm not too late. 
Possibility I'll still be doing election work, but likely not. If I have to pull out I'll cover any cancellation costs.

Bill

Any plans for return trip?

I have booked for 9 at Rylstone for 28th and 7 at Gooloolgong on 29th. There is room for expansion at both venues. If you want more just ring the hotels direct or PM me.
All looking good. Gaz have you contacted Sandy?

Hi All, I had suggested to Sandra that 11.00am on the Sunday morning seemed to work well for us last year and would that be OK for them again. I received a message back this evening that it will work for them and they are looking forward to the catch up.

She also mentioned that Bathurst is getting very chilly and she definitely will be bringing her Ugg boots.

I had also mentioned to her and Alison in my previous message that Al & Marie had posted the idea of maybe having a get together at their place after leaving The Mount but she did not make comment. I believe they are happy to go along with any plans we might make.

So.......Al, when you read this, over to you. I am more than happy to contribute to any costs if you and Marie choose to host a gathering.

Cheers

It is indeed getting chilly, Its been between -1 and 2C each morning for the last week.  But by 11am its warmed up to whatever its going to be for the day (approx 14-17 mostly).

We'll organise somethin here at Kelso for the Krew(just a Koincedence really), will post details later.

Hi Rick and all,

Family has intervened and I can't make the RossKo ride, to my great disappointment.

As I said before, let me know if the is any expense that I need to make up, and I'll do it forthwith. I don't want anyone out of pocket from my withdrawal.

G'day All,

Bob and I have decided to wend our way to Gooloogong directly after activities on the Mount on Sunday. This is to let Al and Marie know for catering purposes.

Will see some of you at Rylestone for drinks on Saturday night.

Rickmeister.

(I'd like to supply the Honey Bourbon for toasts on the Sunday on the Mount. Can somebody please advise what brand to get?)

Don't forget the lego shot thingy. I found mine a few weeks ago after it went missing for a couple of years, must be an omen or something.

Thanks, RG! Found mine after thinking the grand kids snaffled it to join their Lego collections. It's even the correct colour (after the Yellow Peril...)

Rummaged through the Forum last night, came across Klompy's very first notification of RossKKo's parting, 26th May, 2016. Spent hours reading all the tributes and messages from fellow Forummers, from all points of the globe. Literally bought tears to the eyes, reliving past memories of times and travels with the man.

The very first time...supposed to meet him and Klompy at Denman at a certain time. Waited and waited, no RossKKo or Klompy. Said to the service station attendant, "If a couple of weird looking older blokes on weird looking K-Bikes turn up, tell them we've gone, via Dunedoo."

Sure enough, a couple of hours later, a mighty roar of a K-Bike could be heard, while we were stopped at a park, and RossKKo flew past, screeched to a stop and then a U turn..."G'day, lads, my name's RossKKo, sorry I'm late"

That was the start of it for me.

Now, 6 years have gone without him, another year bites the dust. Will have a couple of sips of his favourite tipple on the Mount on Sunday week, tell a few stories and lies, and continue the memory.

Remember that day very well Rickmeister. We headed off and had "lunch" on the front steps of a country pub where Rosskko was trying not to look at the barmaid with tatts all over herself.
I will not be able to join the krew on this occasion as she who must be obeyed has just came out of hospital with a new bionic knee. If I leave her she will be hopping mad with a walking stick.
Last year I couldn't go because of a rebuilt shoulder.....joys of getting older.
Enjoy and celebrate the occasion.

Hi all,

I'll be at Rylstone for Sat night, then riding down to Bathurst with you guys.  I've just realised that Marie has something else organised  for the Sunday so she wont be attending the Mountain.  It also means I have bugger all time to do much for the Sunday (my catering skills arent much).

So I'll leave it up to the majority here. A pub for lunch(there are many to choose from) or I can provide Sausages, rolls, drinks, coffee, tea etc (gratis) and a view of the mountain as that's about it for my skills with the time available. Space is not a problem.

What are you guys happy with?

Al

We are meeting Sandy and family at 11am and that usually takes an hour or so. I would think that makes time very tight for you Al, I suggest we should retire to a pub lunch where we can warm up and be ready to freeze again on the Gooloolgong run.
What say all?

I agree that we should retire to the pub for lunch. Thanks to Al and Marie for their thoughts on having something at their place but it is certainly less trouble to go to a commercial venue and the Irish Pub is very central and has that car park out the back. 

RossKKo's sister, Alison, had mentioned going to the Irish Pub in town again in an earlier message and I had told her that it was a possibility that Al and Marie were considering having something at their place but would let them know how things panned out. I will message them again once we have some replies in.

It's 11 degrees C at The Mount at the moment with a "feels like 8" on the weather app. Might need the warm gear next weekend.

Look forward to catching up - travel well everyone.

Cheers

Unfortunately I'll be having some dental surgery on Thursday afternoon so I don't think I'm going to be fit to ride next weekend. Enjoy the ride. I'll raise a glass to Rosskko on Saturday evening.

There you go Gaz, using that logic of yours again.  I need to get one of the Pub's Staff t-shirts as I have been there a few times now.   Very Happy

Gooloogong is about an hour and a half away I believe?
