Here's a blatant promotion for an outstanding weekend enjoyng Australia's outstanding alpine region and contributing to a very worthy cause.
Just a heads-up that the annual fundraiser weekend for battling juvenile cancer is to be held on the 1st weekend of November.
The "Ride" is more than motorcycles and charity. It has become an institution for a celebration of life itself. Everyone attending is there to enjoy the area, the atmosphere and the friendliness of the other attendees.
It's an all-motorcycle event that is sponsored by Honda, with the biggest cheers going out to the smallest bikes arriving. Our champion downhill disabled skier, Michael Milton, attended a few years back. He'd gained his riders permit to be able to ride a small scooter in the event and his public remark on the stage that day was "I hope to return and ride a bike capable of the speed limit".
No bike? Don't be shy, turn up anyway. Eagles Nest restaurant is open over the weekend, so ride the charilift to the top and enjoy Australia's highest altitude devonshire tea.
Cooma Motorfest is also on the 1st November for an outstanding display of cars, bikes, vintage military vehicles and machinery. gotta' love those old "gloppata gloppata" engines, haha!
Like a taste of schnapps? Visit the Wild Brumby Distillery and sample their outstanding range of schnapps and vodka. Enjoy a great meal whilst you're there as well, the German-inspired menu is ecellent and you might just be lucky enough to experience a performance of the resident "singing Jack Russels".
This year the Brewster Bros return to entertain on Saturday night in the Thredbo Village Square. You haven't lived until you've experienced the 1000 voice chorus of "No Way Get ***** **** Off" echoing through the Threbo Valley at 10pm! Seriously, their great blokes and always appreciated.
If you're lucky enough to be there on Friday night, it's Halloween! Parties will be in full swing, especially in our apartment. Stop in for a "G'day" at the Squatters Run and have a not-so-quiet tippple with us.
Here's a link to tell you what it's all about.
You're never feel better than when you're helping.
