You have plenty of choices if Priscilla doesn't make the cut then David.  There is a lovely Red "Veloce" PX200 rearing to go if you decide you would like to pop over tonight to pick him up also :)  But I see Darren is barracking for Priscilla...:)

Priscilla Julie, so it will be a very slow slow group ride up. Then again it might be Beth’s scooter. Still fiddling, gulp

Thanks for checking this out David and Les.

I have just spoken to Fiona where we are all mostly staying.  She has suggested that at Check-in everyone who is having dinner in-house is to pay at Reception $15 per head.  There will be a lovely spit-roast, delicious home made salads and something delicious for those with dietary requirements.   

Those who are staying at the Grampians View Cottages and Units are also very welcome and on arrival for 6.30pm dinner can you please pop into Reception and pay as well.

Fiona has suggested you definitely bring wet weather gear and thermals for the cold nights.  The pool will be nicely heated for anyone who wants a dip and as we have the whole place to ourselves we can thoroughly enjoy ourselves. 

If anyone wants to bring their music boom box please do so. :)

See you all in the morning, be mindful of peak traffic but once we are out of the city it will be pleasant riding.

Cheers Julie

Just rang the Caltex service station. Little Boundary Road is currently open. The manager said road maintenance is occurring overnight from 8pm until 5am. She will pop on some extra dim sims and egg rolls for those who need a snack. Test riding the lead scooter for the slow ride today. Wish me luck, David

Oh dear, it looks like you are right Les. That will muck us up. On one hand it says road closed while on the other it mentions a 40 km/ph restriction. Perhaps we can ring the service station to ask them what's happening outside their front door.
