Hi,

We're working on it! Location is expected to be the same, Tintaldra, date uncertain, but hopefully soon!

Keep checking the meeting page:

http://www.horizonsunlimited.com/meetings/

And of course we'll also announce it in the next newsletter.

So ... on the east coast near the boarder of Victoria and New South Wales .. -36deg 02min 147deg 55min

Probably around February. Might go and give a talk.. ? Hummm my remote first aid thingy is due for renewal around then too.. will have to do some thinking about that .. humm next course starts 17/12 .. and they have not listed the course dates after that .. any one else interested in say Jan at Surry Hills Sydney .. cost is $230 for 3 days - Sat & Sun and err I think it was Sat .. but could have been Sun .. ... they do run in the week too ... but you tend to get people who do a job .. say off shore fishermen so that slants the course ... better at the weekend as you get a range of interests.

----- If you are hanging around untill August there is another meeting you should go to .. up in the Northern Teritory.. on the eastern coast .. second weekend in August .. not certian of the location as yet...

Hey guys
I'll be there. Be a good opportunity to catch up before I go over to Europe for the big trip and also suck everyone's brains for last minute tips.
Frank - just did the St.Johns advanced first aid course - cost $160.
I'll be doing the remote course with them (1 day) later in the year - cost is about $70 I think - well worth the while before we leave next year.

BTW - anyone going to Bombala this year?

Cheers
Mick

Yeh Scott, I'm definitely going. Last meeting was great. Last chance to pick people's brains before next May's trip.

Thanks KennyE, I saw the link earlier.

The only thing is when you follow the links to the pre-register section, it says it is for 2007, but the front pages say 2008 or am I having a blond moment??.

Just wanted to make sure before I try and book leave at work.

Yes .. a bit mixed up..

2007 was February 23-25

2008 is February 22-24

As shown on http://www.horizonsunlimited.com/meetings/


Close off for the cheaper fee is 10th Feb ? I think..

-----
Was at the pub on umm Friday night ..

Camping across the road looks like a past possiblity ... there is a comercial camping place just errr north west of the pub .. so I think they are the problem with the free camping ..

Oh and Alf does not have a DVD player .. but the meeting says there is a DVD show of the HU DVD ... so I'll bring along some other stuff on DVD .. all ok for public showing .. no copywrite stuff.

---- The Langs are off travelling .. I'll miss them and their packing show.

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.
