This morning was a brisk 7 degrees for a few of us that arrived at the Woombye Pub to meet up for the run up to Gympie. We had 5 bikes and 7 people turn up with us meeting 3 others at Gympie so we had 10 members at Gympie representing our branch for the Gympie Branch yearly poker run. The day ended up being a great day out on the bikes, riding around the Gympie area on some good back roads for bikes and a great group of people making it another top day out for all those that attended. Some of our members also coming away with few prizes, with Dale wining a bottle of JD at Widgee for the raffle, Nev winning a prize for lucky card and the Andy and Sandy winning prizes for the final raffle back at the finish with Andy having the 2nd best hand for the day gathering another prize. So all in all in was a good day out with good company and great riding so what else could we ask for. It was good to catch up with Rob S again and have a ride with him, as it was our Tassie trip since we last rode together. Again I thank everyone that turned up supporting the Gympie branch and representing our branch. So until we next ride stay upright and safe.
