IMPORTANT NOTICE RE 2017 TWIN BRIDGES RALLY
TWIN BRIDGES RALLY – 20th – 22nd October
Dear Past and Intending Twin Bridges Rally attendees,
It has been brought to our attention today, that despite all of the Twin Bridges Rally organizers careful planning of the 2017 dates, from September to October so as not to clash with events in and around our area, such as Bay to BIrdwood, AFL, Father’s Day & local Football / Netball finals. One organization has chosen to relocate also from September to October since we planned our new date.
The purpose of this reminder is to stress to all who may be contemplating attending our Twin Bridges Rally – 2017, to BOOK YOUR ACCOMODATION NOW ( if you haven’t already done so ) so as to avoid disappointment
Would you please pass the word around to other clubs and club members who may not have attended the 2015 Twin Bridges Rally.

2017 Twin Bridges Rally
Our Twin Bridges Rally committee have set the date for the 2017 rally. This new date has been chosen as a result of feedback, which was in favour of avoiding the clash with Father’s Day, AFL , SANFL and local footy finals, and to prevent major car parking issues if there is a final at Johnstone Park.
The date for the 2017 Twin Bridges Rally is now OCTOBER 20th–22nd 201
