Bruce Gendle passed away a year ago on the ride to Lake Paika Station.
The people of the small town of Quambone were extremely helpful on the day of Bruce’s accident. The Quambone Races will be held on Saturday 11 May 2019 and a few of us are going to attend. This town is doing it extremely tough and the annual race day is one of the few events they hold that can help boost their economy and spirits.
I know it is only one week before we ride north to the Bonus Downs Get-Together and it is a long way for fellows from Sydney and further south. If you can attend this event it will be much appreciated. Garry Nudd and I will attend along with a few others of our Hunter Valley friends.
Some of us will be staying at the Gulargambone Hotel on the Friday night, and then attending Bruce’s accident site on Saturday morning for a remembrance. We’ll then head on to Quambone and the races.
For those NAR riders who can’t attend the race weekend, maybe you could consider a stop – perhaps overnight – at Quambone either on the way to, or home from Bonus Downs. There’s great dirt roads near there.
