Message from the President

Hi All
As we exit lockdown in Victoria, and life begins to return to some form of normal, restrictions have been lifted for venues, with no caps applying to the number of patrons.
This means that we can hold our November meeting at the Pascoe Vale Hotel on Tuesday 30th November at 8 pm. 
I have confirmed with the hotel and they are looking forward to seeing us all again. Meals will be available earlier, and we encourage this, as it provides a social gathering of members before the formal meeting.
This will also be our Xmas catchup, as the Xmas ride to Llanelly this weekend has been cancelled.
You are reminded that you will need to comply with the Covid QR code in order to attend the venue.
Remember to keep checking the calendar under the “news” heading on the club website to keep up to date with rides & activities.
— 
Kind Regards

Alistair Piercy

Were out and about

It’s good to be free

Last Sunday was the first time since August we were allowed to go over a 25klm limit. We started out at Calder Park and surprisingly Pete Kime was there to greet us, he is’nt riding yet but it was great to see him after his recent health ailments, we progressed to Daylesford then onto Newstead for a pleasant lunch in all the weather held off but earlier on there was heavy mist and even some fog. Seriously though I would have ridden whatever the weather as were the attendees, Heath Pilgrim was off his L.A.M.S Triumph Bonnie and now on a big bike after 3 years of waiting.

We have another Rally a the end of this month at Llannely and the Christmas Party will be combined as it is a camping weekend, there is a expression of interest form coming out by text please reply as we have to book meals, if you just come you maybe turned away its only good manners.

We’re f***ing out!

Greater Melbourne is a lot bigger than Metropolitan Melbourne which used to be 25 miles from the GPO, the Despot Dan Andrews has lifted the lid at last and we are definitely on a ride next month, meanwhile this weekend give the old girl a good kicking (no Clyde not your missus) and start preparing for 3 months of rides you’ve missed out on. All eyes on the calendar for runs and upcoming rallies.

Thoughtful

Our current Covid-19 guidelines

Iron Indian Riders Australia Covid Guidline
As Australia re-opens from lockdown following the Covid-19 Pandemic, the association recognises that we are responsible for the health of our members as we move about the community on rallies, meetings and rides. In order to minimise the impact on our members, the association requires all members attending a venue, ride or rally, to be in compliance with relevant Health Department guidelines and State & Federal Government legislation in relation to Covid Vaccination requirements. 

Monthly rides

It seems like years ago since the last monthly ride, a bit like the photo above but this weekend with day light saving used to always cause a problem with people arriving too late or too early, this time it was’nt an issue because of lockdown. Next month though we are out of the longest lockdown period in the world and thats literally so keep your eyes open for 7th of November for a planned ride to the country.

For others wondering whats lockdown like after 240 days

The long road out

Yes folks its happening but a few things that aren’t going to happen for us living in the city, The Crazy Horse Rally will be on for rural members only that are not in restriction areas and are capable of complying with all Covid-19 regulations. For us suckers in the city we will be organising the Teepee Rally at Llanelly in mid November after the critical 80% mark is reached. This will be fully run as per Government regulations at that period which should mean some form of vaccination QR code for each individual and will be checked before admission to the grounds at Llanelly, keep your eyes peeled for rally forms to be downloaded and submitted before entry, those who don’t do this will told regrettably not to attend.

Just when you thought it was safe the game could change.

I’m suffering with this ailment
