Far Cairn Rally 2013 20-22 Sept Tottenham

Gday all,
Just a note to say the NSW BMW Touring Club's Far Cairn Rally at Tottenham is back for it's 6th year. 21 and 22 September. Supporting the Motorcycle Accident Rehabilitation Initiative again and a bonus celebration of 30 years of BMW K series bikes. All the usual stuff is on again plus special awards for K bikes
Entry forms available at: http://www.bmwtcnsw.org/club/wp-cont...-FCR-Flyer.pdf

Note: PRE-PAID ENTRIES NOW CLOSED

Heaps of raffle prizes again this year including tool kits from Motohansa, $100 voucher from APW Motorcycles of Brookvale and $200 in vouchers from Ffasers.

A big thanks to these businesses for their support.

Thanks to everyone who came along last year for making it a great rally hope you can make it back again.
cheers

I'm working on getting there this year [but I say that every year and something f**ks up my plans ].

To my embarrassment, I will admit that I'm a member of the BMWTC of NSW, the great club who organise this ride every year [sorry I'm a let down on attending most of the club things that have happened over the last couple of years, but some of you know why].

And MARI was an idea of two of the clubs long standing members who tipped in a big chunk of their own money to get the original hospital trial off the ground.

This is a worthwhile fund raising rally, if you can't go perhaps donate anyway [contacts can be provided if you want to do that].

This is a good rally, went last year. Got there Friday and made camp, the feed at the club was good, Saturday went to the Cairn to get the "WoW" factor, to Nymagee for lunch and back to the rally. Sunday took back roads to Bathurst where we headed different ways
Great ride, mates and rally. Will be there this year

Sorry to hear that mate, roll on early November then! Oh by the way forgot to mention i think all the rooms at Pooncarrie are booked out now.

I guess the other big question will be....who else from the Mudgee area is planning to go to the Far Cairn?

Tell T that Bev's coming up to this one, so's the trailer!
385kms for me, but it's all fairly flat running after Cowra
