2012 Australian CX500 & CX650 Rally - Which weekend?
« Started on: 29-Aug-11, 22:39 »
Hi Folks,

The weekend currently proposed for the 2012 rally was primarily selected because it is in the school holidays and this would have made it easier for Wayne and Mel to attend with their boys.

However, as Wayne and Mel have already indicated they will not be attending the 2012 rally, I would like to know if there is another weekend in March/April that may be more suitable/convenient for the majority of members.

The three possible weekends are:
  • 16 - 18 March (Weekend after VJMC rally)
    If we hold our rally this weekend it will give forum members who plan to also attend the VJMC rally the opportunity to make a holiday of the trip.
    However, the Valvoline Bathurst Autofest is also being held over this weekend which means we will not have the opportunity to ride around Mount Panorama. [1]
  • 30 March - 1 April (Weekend before Easter)
    This is also the same weekend as the Ulysses AGM in Mildura
  • 13 - 15 April (Weekend after Easter)
    This is the weekend currently proposed.

I've set the poll to run for 10 days - if you are planning to attend the 2012 rally please vote and let us know which weekend you'd prefer.
 1. Even if our event is held on another weekend there is no guarantee we will be able to ride around Mount Panorama - it is regularly booked on weekends for use by motoring groups.

Kathy the main reason we pick that weekend wasn't that it was school holidays but more that it was a public holiday in the southern sates witch allowed people to travel home

That was true for the 2010 and 2011 rallies but unfortunately VJMC are holding their annual rally on the March long weekend in 2012.

In order to enable our members to attend both annual rallies we've decided to hold our 2012 rally on a different weekend - at this stage the weekend of 13-15 April is the proposed weekend and it was chosen because it is in the school holidays.
