Baan Baa NW-NSW Noms are riding to BAAN Baa all are welcome
Baan Baa is a small town called Baan Baa, with a pub that has accommodation, meals and good beer, (Tallie and I have given it a test run). For those that haven’t been to Baan Baa before, it is basically a railway siding for wheat, in a rural area. Not much there. The sort of town that would benefit and make us welcome as we pour money into their little economy. There is no fuel there so make sure you have a full tank to get back to either Boggabri or Narrabri.

Deaks. This run is open, as a courtesy, to NSW Chapter members if they are looking for an alternative to the Holbrook run which is on the following weekend. Would you please liaise with the Chapter if you think they might be interested. I know Macca was interested when it was going to be in Gunnedah but he has another commitment also on the weekend that might be cutting it a bit fine for his ride times.
This ride is all about us potential members of the Patriots Australia getting together to meet and greet each other. It is a chance for us to get to know each other a bit better, maybe start looking ahead to the future as to where we will be in six months or even longer. With Deaks and possibly Macca attending, it will be a chance to have any questions answered as to the future of the club and how we might fit in. Mostly it will be about having a good ride, a few sherberts, a good feed and then a good ride home at the end.
Please let me know ASAP your intentions for this ride.
