Branch Shirts

Posted by Ado on October 19, 2019 at 5:30 PM Comments comments (3)
I was at a function last night when the subject of changing our shirts to black was raised. Can I implore the current committee to seek the opinion of the rest of the branch because from what I am hearing it is not a popular decision. Myself, I am afraid that tradition seems to have become a dirty word in the branch and I feel it is a shame that the branch is leaving the colours of Ipswich City. The Ipswich shirt colours have easily been identified by every other Ulysses Branch in Australia and have been a subject of discussion at every AGM since our inception. Could the committee please confirm if this is gossip or not, as this seems to be hot topic of conversation

Toy Ride

Posted by Peter (Chopper) on October 15, 2019 at 3:30 AM Comments comments (0)
Ado ha passed this onto me for anyone who maybe interested. Hi All A lady called Amy Louise has rung our branch - the Brisbane Branch to ask if local Ulyssians could help out her fundraiser on the day. Ken Cox, the ride co-ordinator for our group is liaising with her and will be there to help organise the bike riders on the day. She is part of a group trying to get toys to the Mater hospital for sick children as a support for them after they go through some tough times. She has asked people to get together with their neighbours to collect toys. The bike riders are given the streets in which to go and collect the toys. There will be a back up vehicle with them. Ken has spoken to Savaugn and they have decided to support Amy-Louise???s plea for help. Ken is wanting to know of those riders who are willing to give some time to this cause. Amy- Louise would be so grateful for the support as her original biker contact has let her down. Details are as follows. Date. 27th October. Start Point. Chermside Westfield front car park near the ifly centre. 8.30am. Some of the food venues are providing coffees etc before the ride. The latest ride start time will be 10.00am. A ride route will be provided and the bikers will visit participating streets for the collection. Depending on the number of bikers, there may be between 5 and 10 stops. Photos may also be asked to be taken... End Point Warner Tavern 12.00 noon There will be a variety of family fun entertainment. The colours chosen for the day are gold and yellow. Ken would like to know who can make it on the day, so he can be clear with routes etc to Amy-Louise. He can be contacted by phone???0418700185..or email??? knox.1@gmail.com
