PostSubject: WWW ... Wicked Warburton Weekend 9th & 10th August   Mon Jun 30, 2008 9:18 am

The dust has settled since the last Warby Booze Cruise, so it's time to plan for the next. August is far enough off to arrange your social calendar so you don't miss out.

Following the arrangements for the May weekend which worked well; meet at COG Cafe Mt Evelyn 10:00am for around a 10:30am roll. If we stop at all pubs Rolling Eyes we'd expect to get into Warburton before darkness and an evening of mirth in front of the log fire. Shocked

If there's snow on Donna Buang the, we can throw snow balls at one another! No

If we make a list (yep, another one!) maybe we ca make a group booking for accommodation.
The List

I'm a definite ... packed ... ready. (Wouldn't miss it for quids!)

Laughing Thanks for the feedback and welcome to the small but growing on-line peleton of like minded cyclists.

The forum site is still very much in its infancy, so modifying colours and design to improve the look and readability is sure to happen from time-to-time.

Meanwhile, back at the Warby Weekend, we'll need to decide where we're going to stay and book in the near future, otherwise we might not get in.

Ian suggested cabins, but I'm not sure that the socialising ability would be the same. Neutral

BTW, just going off-topic for a second, have you noticed the ability to include Flash & video in the forum ... plus the ability to chat at the foot of the main page? (Assuming someone else is on-line ... otherwise you'd be chatting to yourself, and that's a bad habit) lol!

ah , talking to myself.....
must stop doing that..... What a Face

I'm sure ; once the forum is more active , all the benficial 'goodies' wil be delicatly used... albino albino albino .

But back to topic...
I have no experience with the cabins , so a comparisment i can't make, No
al i can say the warby pub , was a fun and conveniant location.
And there is where my preference will be..

Yes, I must admit that my preference is for the pub too. All under one roof and no need to venture out and freeze your proverbial ass-ets off. Embarassed

About $40 from memory. Or $80 for a room with an en suite.

You can't get a decent pair of knicks for that! Evil or Very Mad

It's a rail trail and, according to Oz on the other forum, it's in pretty good condition and okay for a roadie.

Personally I usually take the MTB on the Warby trail, but others can and do ride their road bike and do reasonably well. It fairly good compacted gravel in most places and some bitumen as you near Warburton.

Last call for numbers! The Warburton Booze Cruise leaves in 2 weeks, the venue is the Alpine Retreat, the log fire's a-cracklin', the beer, wine and pink lemonade is all at the right temperature ... and it's time to book or sleep in a tent.

Alpine Retreat Hotel (03) 5966 2411.

Okay, here they come in dribs (or is that drips) & drabs, totally untouched:
Day 1. Below the snow line, enthusiastic and yet undaunted, enjoying the sun.




Evening 1. Pre-dinner drinks, log fire, liquid refreshments. Oblivious of what is to follow. Various intrepid adventurers.

Damhooligan. Do I look worried?


Dennis. A little wine to fortify the soul. Richard's faceless profile.


Donna. It's snowing out there! Are we going for a walk?


Tennisdude & fiance


Oz. Dining with friends.


Others. The last supper.


Oz. Contemplates sub-zero conditions.


Maybe a few more later.

And here's Donna's memoirs of the weekend ... before falling foul of the weather.

Oz with black Irish beer.


The boys and their drinks.


Tom ... still drinking!


No, the snap isn't blurred! We'd had a few by this stage; Oz, vicjane, earl & damhooligan.


The last waterhole arrivals.








... and one for me too!
