[Official Cruise] Lake Somerset - 18th September 2016

Post by dReigner » 28 Aug 2016, 11:42

I keep forgetting to post events on here for people who aren't noticing the Facebook posts.
Now that the weather is warming up and people are coming out of hibernation, it's about time we visit some lakes again. Pretty standard fare for this one: we meet up at Ironbark Gully (just a short ways up from the Ferny Grove Tavern/train station), then head out through Samford, up Mount Glorious Road, down Mount Glorious Road, and out toward Lake Somerset.

Try to be at the initial meeting point by 10:00AM, as we'll be on the road at 10:15 (message or call ahead if you think you're going to be a bit late). The trip covers about 80km and will take between an hour and 90 minutes (depending on road conditions and how comfortable people are with driving through the hills), so the goal is to get to the barbecue spot by midday.

THERE WILL BE CHICKEN TENDIES! For anyone coming along who has special dietary needs (vegetarian, vegan, gluten intolerance, etc.), let us know so we can bring something along to feed you as well.

As per the usual, bring along:
- Enough fuel for the trip
- UHF (channel 17)
- Chair or picnic blanket to sit on
- Some form of insect repellent
- A bit of cash to cover for lunch

Anyone is welcome to come along to the event, regardless of the car they'd be in. These events aren't limited to particular makes or models, but we will not allow cars that pose a danger to other road users. If your car is leaking fluids, has bald tyres, or any other serious issues, leave it at home and ride with someone else.

Our events are not a race! While we like to have fun in the twists and turns, be respectful of other road users! Dangerous behaviour will not be tolerated. At the end of the day we all want to get to the same place, eat and drink the same stuff, and head home to the people we care about. Don't be 'that guy' who ruins the day for everyone.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask.
