Gorge Rd Overnighter

5-6 December 2020

TOMCC NZ, Otago Southland Area Gorge Road Overnighter

Hi all, instead of the December Otago Southland monthly ride, Bill Riddell is hosting an overnighter at his home in Gorge Road, about 30km south of Invercargill on the Catlins road.
We will be leaving on the Saturday, 5 December at about lunchtime and head down through the Catlins, arriving at Bill’s place later in the day.
The evening will be spent socialising, watching biker movies, listening to music, enjoying a bonfire and doing whatever other fun we can dream up.
Food will be supplied, but a donation towards costs will be appreciated. Also, some drinks will be available but it would be a good idea to also bring some of your own. Bill can accommodate about 12 people indoors, some on a few beds, the rest on mattresses on the floor. You will need a sleeping bag and maybe a tent is also a good idea just in case indoors gets a bit too crowded.
Bill doesn’t have email so please let me know if you’re interested in taking part in this overnighter. We do need some idea of numbers for catering purposes.
The return trip will of course be on the Sunday. For those of you who don’t wish to stay overnight you are most welcome to just come along for the ride.
Look forward to seeing you there.
