    Phil and Kate from North Yorkshire in England will be arriving in Perth this December 2012 at the beginning of a 9 month motorcycle tour of Australia. They have been following the BMW MCC of WA online and would like to meet up with the members at Catalano's one Sunday morning. They would also appreciate some advice/tips on biking in Australia and  the opportunity to join members for a ride out or just breakfast and a chat.

    Thanks to all the members who regularly take pictures and send them in to the committee. With the advent of better camera's the file size of photo's is going up and up. Ideally for use on the website we only need screen resolution sizes ie around 250Kb. Where ever possible please submit your photo's in this form and not as 3-6Mb files. That way we can publish them quickly without having to re-size them. You may find an easy way of doing this is to email your photos to us, if you use Outlook it will ask you if you want to re-size your photo's for email.

    Thanks

    This is the 4th year of the Annual Camp Cook-off but it was the first I have attended. 24 members, partners, family and friends attended the camp at Kokerbin Hill between Quairading and Bruce Rock. What a great event it was! I know it's an old cliche "you had to be there", but I reckon its true. There was great camaraderie, outrageous sledging (Ken), amazing cooking skills and some outright theatrics (JP!)

    The night was chilly so a big camp fire was in order with Travis ferrying vast quantities of wood in to keep the fire going all night.



    There were the usual posers!

    Arriving early to scope out the competition.

    It was great to see so many entries and such a variety of dishes.

    The judges certainly didn't go wanting for dinner on the night.

    In fact a few of the spectators didn't go wanting either as they followed the judges around with their own cutlery sampling the left overs!

    This year most came by road, but JP reminded us that the he came by dirt, how the heck he brought the TV and Caramel popcorn is another story!
    but it was enough to win him a jacket. Though I think the judges might have awarded it just to shut him up!!



    Many more pictures and details to come, the pictures are still coming in.

    A big thanks to Toni and Anthony for their great work in making the event possible. Thanks to the Judges, ladies you did a great job. Thanks to all our sponsors who will be listed in a subsequent post, and thank you to all who attended and helped to make it a great evening.

    For those interested in how the Border Run participants are progressing, have a look on the clubs public forum under rides / Border run to find Bully and Mikes spot tracker links.
    Both are camped at the start of the 90 mile straight this evening (Friday 3rd). Bully travelled via Hyden on his R100gs outfit, Mike blacktop all the way via Coolgardie on his ZX14.
