Phil McIntosh gives Members a  Summary of the Gears & Beers Schedule

Phil McIntosh came to the podium.  He announced that the last meeting for Gears’n’Beers will be Wednesday night. 
 
Phil focused on the Festival site and that Mate’s Gully will be used as an office for the festival and you can get a coffee and they will keep the tab that the club will settle after the event. Thank you to Pykie for arranging this.  
 
Phil and Gerry went for a ride on Saturday morning on the trail of the Dirty 130 and Phil found it spectacular. He noted that you cannot drive and navigate it by yourself.  The navigators job is very important.
