I am sure that you are all wondering how the planning is going!!! So, to answer some of those questions this is what has been in the planning stage.  As you know we had 2020 National Rally all planned and ready to go, so we started with resurrecting those plans and have found many adjustments have had to be made.  The major one is for our Saturday night dinner; the venue was set to be Lismore Workers Club but unfortunately due to the amount of destruction caused by the floods with all three levels affected they will not be operational until sometime after our event.  Finding a venue large enough has us returning to the show ground.  So it will be what is fast becoming known as the “Lismore Chic” style and the venue will be rustic and authentic.  We are still in the processes of finding caterers, but this is looking promising.  Our Grand Parade has also had some changes and it will now be meandering around and through the most flood affected parts of our town. The organised rides are well in hand and if any members are interested we are also in need of some assistance with Tail End Charlies and Ride Leaders.

While the Lismore Show Ground went completely under in the floods, the grounds are drying out well and many activities have already been held there both to support and entertain our local community since March this year.  Grants have been applied for and work has commenced to restoring what damage was done and they are now to the point that major events such as the local show is returning next month.  We have assessed our needs for the Rally and this has seen the Rent a Tents, cool rooms and extra toilets and showers all being ordered in preparation for our national rally.
