A week has almost passed and I still feel quite emotional and unable to put to words what we achieved last Sunday. Without the work of many during the lead up and on the day itself, the day would not have been as successful as I believe it was. The DVAC staff said they were approached by many attendees this year for support.
As I have always said, if our event provides information to support just one person who lives in Domestic Violence - then we have achieved our ...Read Full Post »

Getting interesting articles for the newsletter is often difficult, so if you feel your budding writer coming on, you could write a report about your experiences today, the day of our second DV ride.
I'm sure Dorothy our Newsletter Editor would be eternally thankful.
This also applies to todays ride leaders, would be interesting reading about their experiences during the day.
I took a movie of the ride leaving Yamanto today, expect to have it on site soon, and counted 118 ...Read Full Post »

Thanks so much to the most amazing group of friends who happen to love motorcycling and being part of our great Club. The Ipswich branch is certainly getting its name out in our community and the motorcycling community. Ado was approached by another Ulysses Branch member who said he could see we are a very strong branch .... Congrats to us I say. We are such a fledgling group only 2 1/2 years old, and are already a branch which is truly lives by the Ulysses Code - To Grow ...Read Full Post »

Just following on from my update last night. Details and the flyer for the DV ride have been sent to 62 clubs via email and 31 Facebook groups, a few business's and I went nuts handing them out at the Black Dog ride. Over the past few weeks I have attended Gatton, Redcliffe, Gold Coast, Darling Downs and Warwick meetings. Its been a busy time but truly rewarding.
To play where's Marita - the coming month is Lockyer (4th), Sunshine Coast (5th), Redlands (9t...Read Full Post »

Blue Skies Shining on me and you!!!! The Ride is on!!!
For those members who couldn't attend the Info Night last night, we had all decided that the Event was going ahead and that a little rain wasn't going to stop us (or should I say huge deluge from the past two days).....10 months of planning, wasn't going to be a waste.
Everything is as it should be - Make sure you go on the Ipswich Ride with Eric leaving Macca's Ya...Read Full Post »

Thanks to Ipswich Life Magazine for advertising our ride in this week's magazine. I have already taken a call from a lady keen to come along on her bike with friends. Will fill you all in at the meeting on Friday Night, that way we can all be on the same page regards what we are telling interested persons and businesses.
Only 9 weeks to go!
