Club trip - 11th Feb 2012
Hi Guys

We have a club trip planned for the 11th of Feb,
It is a day trip down to some of my old haunts around the hills behind Lismore NSW.
I ran this trip last year but most of you are new members so thought it may be nice to do the run again.
The drive is all 2WD capable apart from a short run up to a lookout - that is if I can remember how to find the road (this time).

The actual location is called Minyon Falls <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://www.byron-bay-beaches.com/minyon-falls.html">http://www.byron-bay-beaches.com/minyon-falls.html</a><!-- m -->
Depending on the numbers and what the group wants to do we can either meander around the back hills of Mullumbimby and Murwillumbah or head down to Byron Bay then home, some may want to stop for Dinner somewhere on the way home.

People Attending:
1 - Peter Richens - Trip Leader (someone to blame when we get lost)
2 - Steve & Wendy - Weatherman

Re: Club trip - 11th Feb 2012
Ok meeting place.

For trips on the South side we often meet at the BP Service centre near Yatela,
Trying to make it not too early 7am should be fine with us departing no later than 7:30am
Some of us may have a bite to eat at Maccas,

Please let me know if you are going to be late as we will depart $ 7:30am.

The rout is not rigid as we may do a bit of exploring plus actual activities will depend on the weather.

Minyon Falls has an area where if it's hot some of us may want to take a swim - it's a good distance back from the falls so we shouldn't lose anyone over the edge :-)

Yep

If the Pie place is open and people would prefer to meet there I could be convinced.

Re: Club trip - 11th Feb 2012
I don't think the pie place is open that early.

I was only making sure I had the "right" petrol station ... cos it is not visible from the round-about ... gotta turn hard left and sort of double back on the service road to get to it.

But now that I know which one it is ... I can find it while still asleep :mrgreen: :lol:

Unfortunately I can't make this trip Pete...I have to work that week-end, plus go over to Macleay to let people into the house.

As a thought, (yeah I do have these sometimes) I was going to run an easy day trip up Duck Creek Rd to O'Riellys around Sun 26th Feb. Have mornos at O'Riellys, do the tree top walk, let the birds crap on you etc... then back down Duck Creek with a possible lunch at Beaudesert.

This is highly dependent on rain, they tend to close the road after rain.

Would it be ok to advertise the drive as a possible club trip, more for new members as a get to know each other. I don't know too many members yet and would be a great opportunity to meet a few.

Hi Mick

By all means post it up and see if you can get any takers, I am working that day plus there is the working bee at Mount Mee that I hope most of you got a message about but a club trip can still happen.

If you get enough takers and want to go under the club banner you will need to record names and get signatures of participants, there is a trips log that shpuld be filled in, I will see about getting this up on the forum soon.

Sorry Pete forgot about the Mt Mee working Bee :oops: I'll postpone this day trip to a week-end less cluttered. I'll work out another date and get back.

Ok Short notice continuing Big Grin

One of our members Joe has proposed a trip that we are now doing in luw of the Minyon Falls trip.

We are now heading down to Casino then a little south into pikepene, drake forest malara track,
All sort of south west of Casino.

The Idea is for us to meet up with Joe at Casino then head to the tracks, set up camp late afternoon with a return trip that should see some of us home by 12 - 1pm Sunday as I need to have a sleep before I start work at 6pm Sunday night.

For us Brisbane people I was thinking of possibly meeting up at to depart 6am at the BP Yatela - originally it was a 7am meet but we have a long trip to reach Casino by a reasonable time.

If you have any questions please give me a call - 0427600181
