Branch Members, I am sad to inform you that Denis lost his battle with Cancer yesterday, altough he was not a member for very long the club meant a lot to him, even with his health failing he tried to get on as many rides and attend as many meetings as he could. He will be sadly missed by his wife Cheryl and family and by our branch family.

Details of the funeral will be given when known.


News on Denis

Posted by Smokey on May 14, 2021 at 12:35 AM Comments comments (1)

Saw Denis yesterday and he was pretty zonked out. Ambulance took him in for re-assessment to Ipswich Hospital. Saw Cheryl this morning and they"ve taken him off Morphine which was causing the problems. He has asked for Cheryl to bring him in a coffee and computer mouse so it sound like goodish news. He is much brighter and is expecting a scan and hopefully home on Monday.


From Lockyer Branch

Update on Elaine from Warwick District Branch.

She is demonstrating a great internal strength by maintaining her health. She has been in an induced coma since the accident for her safety. During that time they have done some critical operations on her wrists, spine and face. She still has to endure a lot more in operations to repair her other wrist etc.

On a very positive note, they brought her out of the induced coma on Sunday for a little while and during that time she was abl...

A huge congratulations to Spook for being acknowledged by the National Committee as a worthy recipricant of Telemuchus Medal number 116.

Branch Information Nights

Posted by Ado on May 4, 2018 at 6:25 PM Comments comments (0)
Hi All. A great night last night. We found that Splitty is not as quite as I first thought by being a business development manager by day, he. Is going to bring a new perspective to the branch. Great ideas and the enthusiasm to follow through with it. Silver Fox has taken to his role as ride coordinator with equal if not as much passion. The rest of your committee has decided to continue their wonderful work ethic and will continue to serve the branch selflessly. I look forward to a great and pr... Read Full Post »

2018 Branch Committee

Posted by Ado on April 25, 2018 at 5:10 AM Comments comments (1)
Hi All, As you can see most of your committee were voted back onto the committee. We lost our Ride Coordinator Smurf who is ably replaced by Silver Fox who will do a wonderful job. We also have a Vice President again in Splitty. Judging on how both men reacted to their portfolios I feel they will fit in with the rest of our hard working committee. I have full confidence in the people you have chosen to make decisions on behalf of the branch. I Look forward to another year of being your spokesman... Read Full Post »

Texas overnighter

Posted by Erik (Lumberjack) on April 15, 2018 at 5:40 AM Comments comments (4)

I just wants to say thank you for looking after me when I had some tire problems far away from home.

I'm in trouble now. Anni think I have been naughty. She reckon I rode like a maniac and the flat tire was one of my punnishments.

To my defence, I was just trying to keep up with the ride leader.

Anyway, we made it home with a few stops to pump up the back tire.

Thank you Sue and Peter for taking Anni and our stuff all the way home to us. Oh - and Anni don't wanna ride ...

You asked for it and the National Committee is pleased to announce that members can choose to pay for their membership on an annual basis rather than three years up front, while the three year membership remains. The annual membership renewal fee is $40 and will be available from 1 April 2018 (no, this isn’t an April Fools joke…)"
