Post National Ride/meet .. Expression's Of Interest 
 
Gidday members. You may have seen discussion from a few of us about a Bello style meet in QLD, a national meet to be precise.
At this stage we have nutted ground zero down to a well equipped campground in my neck of the woods, which is about 2 hours ride north of the Brisbane river.
My thoughts are, the weekend after the Oct long weekend ... regular campers will be done and dusted meaning minimal crowd and weather should be prime, and well away from the Bello ride. Plenty of onsite vans and cabins available plus the swag and camping option.
There are pro's and con's with the intended venue, the only con's imo is that the nearest township is 8 klm's away, this we can work around if need be. The camp ground has a very strict 'no noise after 10pm policy' which shouldnt be a problem, anything goes until 10pm, i reckon we could wear ourselves out and start to wind down by 9pm.
This is how i imagine the weekend folding out ... arrive Friday ... gather, eat, drink, blast out some music and BS in the covered area Friday evening/night ...
Saturday .. group ride day, a half decent ride with a good pub meal for lunch, then back to the venue and 'MAYBE' a mini gymkhana type event or 2, just for fun and giggles, then back into the party mode for the evening/night.
Sunday .. obviously head home at your own leisure.

Not asking for any commitment at all, this is all about sussing out if there is any interest in such an event. It will take some planning and organising from Marg and myself and possibly other local members, we just need to know if it will be worthwhile putting it all together.
Opinions and idea's, whether negative or positive are very encouraged as is any questions etc etc ..

If you missed the original discussion you can catch up here ..    http://hdoz.org.au/viewtopic.php?f=48&t=12335

National needs to be central to all.

Yes agree Mickle, but if its a QLD event it needs to be in Qld, its only 3 hours from the border and although further for you Victorians and South Aussies this area was chosen because it is roughly half way between Cairns and Sydney. Its not locked in and can be held closer to the border if we find a suitable destination, which brings me to the following ...
I had a thought   just to throw a spanner into the works  
The Gold Coast hinterland has some of the best riding and scenery anyone could wish for, so i had a bit of a scratch around this morning for sensibly priced accommodation etc.
The only suitable place i found that is close was Beaudesert, it has 3 pub's, 2 of which are close together and have 40 rooms between the 2. Ive never been there but a few members can let us know if its a shit hole or not, please !!
If this is anyones preference just vote the second option in the poll thingy and Beaudesert can be one of our option's.
All suggestions are still open for discussion.

Just a thought . Beaudesert is ( or at least was when I left two years ago ) a hive of activity for coppers ....not just Bike related but generally , as it can sometimes be bogan central . How bout somewhere a bit further out like Aratula or Boonah . A few campgrounds in the area ? Dunno . Good riding round that area for sure .

Thanks Davo, we'll have a search around the area, or maybe someone knows of an ideal spot out that way.

On another note, i checked google maps, 300 k difference from Imbil to Cairns versus Imbil to Melbourne so it is central to the east coast, close to the border would even it out to be nearly dead central.

Go the Imbil you can either make it or not  ,, go or don't, each year numbers would change as in every ride that happens regularly... Try it one time see if it works, if it don't change it , if it does keep it. Rides are always goin to be close for some and a shit long ride for others that's just the way it is.. Just my opinion..

Your right, Perth to Moama = 3300,  Cairns to Moama = 2862, lets have it there. Might be

a tad far for the Queenslanders though.

just to stir the pot...Bello was the site the qldrs went to initially, on a Glenn Innes, Guyra to Ebor to the coast long weekend run. We had a great time at Bello made it a regular qldr reunion every year.  Burra ( Sydney) and Flan (local) were the only two nsw people to attend and that was a drop in for the saturday nite.. Over the many years it has been on, it has since morphed into a national event as some of the original attendees moved around australia and the forum has grown.  We now take up the two pubs in town and most regard it as our national event.  I organised a couple of local events such as Childers for the Qldrs to get together and MH has organised several, as well as local meets.  I'm thinking a State meet be held in those states wanting to and it being open to visitors.  Qld can arrange a fixture, NSW a fixture, probably bello, Vic a fixture etc.  This way we drop the national get together and have three or so smaller get togethers instead. They need to be evenly spread thruout the year, to give everybody a chance to attend all if wanitng to.    However, it's not my party so I'm happy to go with the flow.

I reckon your on the money there Beags, plenty of time in between and I will probably attend the lot. I also look at the
Bello weekend as a national get together, its great to catch up with everyone over the weekend for a beer and a bit of
Bullshit as well as looking forward to the ride up and back.
