...and in updated lunch news, Greendale Pub have added a vego lasagne to our menu.

Beer Deluxe also has a veggie burger on the list, so those who don't eat the animals can still go the Full Country Hospitality option and not go hungry.

Organic raw wholefood vegans and breatharians are still on their own :lol:

I think I'm officially registered, after having a small disagreement with the website....

Heading up the night before.

Have been trying to figure out I way I could come out and play, but I'm failing. Too much stuff to do, not enough weekend days. :(

You're a thinker. There's a slight possibility that might work, depending on how late afternoon things go.

How did you know I like drinks?

Registrations continuing to flow in over the weekend (up until the system shut down because somebody forgot they set a registration cut-off date :oops:). More friends-of-friends than anything, so I won't bother updating The List.

Now up to 40 riders!

I need to send catering numbers through to the pubs this afternoon, so if you're coming, now's the time to do something about it. http://www.mycause.com.au/events/ballaa ... rneclassic

Long-term forecasts for Saturday are coming in, and they're starting to tell stories about possible Westerly winds for Saturday :mrgreen:

I call shotgun on a prime wheelsucking position should there be a headwind.
