Sorry for the confusion, it's been changing a bit as we go. Main days are Saturday / Sunday, but there will be lots of people on the Friday and Monday (arrivals Friday and Anzac Day stuff happening Monday).

Hope that helps! And reg will be up very soon... as soon as we get confirmation from the caterers.

Thanks Grant.

I am planning on arriving on the Friday. I was going to head to Brisbane on Sunday but if there is stuff on the Sunday besides Anzac Day I will stay and leave to come home from there on the Monday.

I am really looking forward to attending my first HU meeting.

Look forward to seeing you both there, planning is going well with lots of interest. I have just picked up a new V8 Troopcarrier so we can compare trucks.

It would be appreciated if anyone thinking of coming along could register ASAP so the caterers don't get a shock

Thumbs up HU Australia - Cooroy April 2010

Just want to say thanks to all the people who attended the meeting and so generously shared their time and knowledge with newbies like me. Tremendously enjoyable, despite a full day of rain. Hope Rob's not too upset about his grass being churned up; I know everyone was trying hard to minimise the damage.

Hoping to make the meeting in South Carolina in September.

Congratulations on a fantastic idea.

Defa

Hi Everyone,

I just want to say thank you everyone for making this weekend possible, we had over 130 people arrive to this years Australian HU meeting.

I want to thank all the volunteers for pulling togethers all the information we required to make this weekend possible. You guys were amazing, I could have never done it without you guys! Also to those volunteers who stepped up on the and helped out over the entire weekend. Thanks a lot.

I specially want to thank Glen and Guy for helping me pull all the volunteers strings together to make this weekend possible. They ran around endlessly for the entire weekend, being plumbers, electricians, first aiders (ones still looking after our only incident!! Thanks Guy)

For those who couldn't make it, we arrived Thursday night, to a wet ground which dried out over Friday only have it pour down with rain on Saturday. But this didn't stop everyone from arriving plus more... Presenters kept on talking until 2am... you know who you are Richard!! and then Sunday went off with hitch! We had a great line up and continued into the night also.

Thanks again to everyone, our SPONSORS, supporters and the die hard people who hung around long enough on Monday to help pull down the marquee.

Thanks
Danielle
oh and I will upload photos as soon as I receive them.

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events (22 this year!); we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, the HUBB or to receive the e-zine. What you get for your membership contribution is our sincere gratitude, good karma and knowing that you're helping to keep the motorcycle travel dream alive.
