Tassie Ride Report Hi everyone, I hope you have had an awesome few months since the last newsletter. 26 of us went to Tassie during the March long weekend and had a ball on truly awesome roads with great friends. Ask anyone who went about the more than 100 Black Uhllans we spent two nights with; great guys really?? My highlight was a BBQ we had one hot night in Strachan with the sun setting over the bay and reflecting off the mountains with a huge rainbow appearing at just the right moment. We were all blown away by how incredible God’s creation truly is; this was a special time unlike any we have had on other trips away. We had hot weather and clear skies while Melbourne was hammered by some of the worst storms in 100 years; go figure! Another great trip, so stay tuned for info about next years Alpine ride.

Taking it further than the ride. A group of Hills Riders have been meeting every Wednesday night at the Perry’s for coffee, sharing some of the things that are happening in our lives, having fun and reflecting on a thought for the week from Wayne (anyone who has been on a Labour Day ride will remember these). These have been awesome evenings. Healing is a big theme in our society and most of us are not quite on song in at least one area of our lives. Next month our thought for the week, and any discussion it stirs up, will be about our lives and the healing choices we can choose to make or ignore. Come along, build friendships, have a ball, share the load, or just enjoy the company if you want. Contact Tony or Kyria for times and dates.

Easter Services Come and celebrate Easter at 10.00am on Good Friday and Easter Sunday @ St. Marks Church Emerald. A contemporary service with a relaxing atmosphere and good music. You know that we warmly welcome all Hills Riders to join us at one or more of these events.

‘2010 TWILIGHT’ RIDES’ 5 Twilight rides this year—5 nights with good weather

and really enjoyable evenings! A BIG thankyou to Elise and Frank Biggs for opening their home on one of these nights and providing a friendly and welcoming environment, and really good food, including dessert! Another BIG thanks to Roger and Teresa Frair for sharing their hospitality with Hills Riders on their beautiful property along side the lake, with BBQ and a good catch up. Twilight (summer) Rides are now finished for 2010! These Friday evenings have brought along some different people than the monthly rides, so its been really good getting to know even more riders from our loc al Emerald area.
