Bugger, I actually had beer there and picked up a couple of stickers about six weeks ago. When I was living in Jerilderie in the early seventies, to get a drink on Sundays you had to be a bona fied traveler, I think from memory the distance travelled was 18 miles from where you spent the night before. Friends and I would often go out to Conargo on a Sunday, drink all afternoon and ride home, surprisingly we all lived to tell the tale. That pub is going to be sadly missed, even if rebuilt it probably won't be the same. I've got very fond memories of the place and the people, I feel pretty sad about this.

A stop off to wash the dust from our throats with stretch49;



And must have been St Patricks day IIRC;



Sad to hear it's burnt down, hope they can resurrect it.

Cheers, badmanners.

I guess we all need to be on the lookout now for the new hangout for the ute-driving bogans.

At least with Conargo you knew where they were heading to/from, but now it will be a lottery I guess.

And a sad loss of a beer-outlet too.

RIP Conargo.

Drank several (dozen) ales there, both as a ute drivin' B&S Boy, and a rider.
Love it or hate it, everyone knows about the place.
Will likely rebuild, but the history that has been lost (a workmate went past today and said it looks pretty terminal) can never be replaced.

Whether an accident or otherwise, a very sad loss, particularly to the small local community.
