Australia 2012 HU Travellers Meeting, Dayboro Qsld, June 8-10, 2012 open now!
 
With the tremendous success of the 2011 Australia Meeting, Shane has us back in Dayboro for the 2012 event, and registration is now open!

It's going to be a good one again, so be sure to register early and get in for the same price as last year. :thumbup1:

We are also now accepting applications from presenters for putting on a talk; it can be on any bike related travelling topic. Last year we had our most diverse range of topics ever, with some fantastic shows and inspiring talks. To help planning the event we need your application forms in early please!

For some more ideas on what YOU COULD present, see the UK Meeting.

We are also looking for volunteers as usual! We had an excellent crew last year doing a range of activities. It takes help from volunteers to put on the meeting and this year we'll need a few more. When you register for the event you'll have an opportunity to volunteer, and we'd greatly appreciate it if you'd help out for just a few hours. It's a GREAT way to meet people too!

:taz: missed out last year - don't you be a :taz:!
Be :thumbup1: instead by registering now!

For the camping its just turn up. You can walk, ride, hitch or drive! There is a fee payable for the camping that goes direct to the Dayboro Show Society.

In terms of the Hu part, you can pay for the entire weekend ahead of time as part of the registration process or if you can only make one day, pay on the day the single-day fee.

Regards,

Shane

GPS tracks
 
For those who want some extra riding, you can access GPS tracks from Trans-Australia Trails : Adventure rides around and across Australia . I've just put up my first one, ( I'm very new to GPS stuff ) a short but pleasant ride from Dayboro showgrounds to Maleny. Thought it may be a nice help if we share some tracks around the area.

More maps and GPS tracks
 
This morning I was told about another website with more maps and GPS tracks ( thanks Darren ). This may be a help to any travelling to the HU TM or just plain travelling around.

Motorcycle Roads (Australia) | SundayMorningRides.com

Each map opens with a 3-second page three picture first but the maps all seem like excellent rides.

What jobs?
 
I live out Texas way, and may be able to give a hand for the weekend. What jobs do you need doing?

We should still be in Australia around this time, i was wondering if there would be any 4x4 related speakers or whether any talks would be covering South America?

shanekfalcon 23 Jan 2012 04:41

Marty, 4 x 4 speakers are welcomed but as yet none have signed up so keep watching this space as I will post up draft schedule and regular updates. We had some in 2010 and they were really good. A couple of the presenters should be looking at South America, not specifically just South America, but as part of a larger talk. Again, though, the schedule is far from firmed up.

Hank, the biggest jobs outstanding are:

Off road ride leader and sweep.
On road ride leader and sweep.
MC
Someone to rustle up the vendors to come and show their wares.

And I sure there will be a million things on the day I have not yet thought off ...

Any/all help is appreciated.

Hi everyone. Australian Road Rider did a write-up on the 2011 meet and it was quite good - thanks to Mark who authored the article. A copy is attached for you'all; It provides a good explanation of what to expect in 2012.

Volunteer
 
I would be able to registration desk (maybe 2 of us) if that would help. I not sure that my riding skills are up to being a sweep, but could do if needed.
