Kiama BUG AGM & Dinner Cancelled

CancelledAfter much researching of options, the 2020 Kiama BUG AGM and Dinner, scheduled for Tuesday 11th August, has been cancelled.
 
This is very disappointing news, as the AGM and Dinner is a wonderful opportunity for getting together (as well as meeting our regulatory requirements!)
 
Unfortunately this  ‘getting together’ of a large group of people presents social distancing difficulties and increases COVID-19 transmission risks.
 
It has been decided by the Kiama BUG committee that such a gathering is not worth the risk, with many of our members being in the ‘vulnerable’ age group. Such a meeting may not meet the requirements of current Public Health Orders.
 
With COVID-19 cases on the rise again we also can’t be guaranteed that any venue will be able to accommodate our group and meet COVID-19 guidelines come August 11.
 
So for now it’s business as usual and the current office bearers will remain in place until 2021.

Kiama BIG BUG Survey 2020

Survey thinkingThe recent COVID-19 ‘quiet time’ has given Kiama BUG members an opportunity to reflect on various issues.

With this in mind, Kiama BUG member Paul Beckmann designed and distributed the BIG BUG survey – and the results are in!

Thanks to the many KBUG members who took the time to complete the survey. The information gained will no doubt contribute to planning for future directions of the BUG.

Both the full survey results and a summary of the results are posted below…..

Canberra Ride Week – April 2019

Canberra 2019

Tuesday April 2nd to Thursday April 4th

This year’s Kiama BUG bike ride trip will be in the nation’s capital Canberra, the home of our political masters. It’s rumoured our most famous pedalling pollie Tony Abbott will make an appearance just to appease all you “lefties“ out there!

For accommodation the ALIVIO Tourist Park is recommended.
– Website – aliviogroup.com.au
– Phone -(02) 6247 5466.

The park covers a wide range of accommodation. It is also where all the rides will be starting from. (Checkout the reviews on google or look for other accommodation under Canberra accommodation.)

It is a 2 ¾ hr drive from Kiama, so you will need to book from Monday 1st.

Rides will be planned for the Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.

The rides will be on Canberra’s extensive network of bike paths.

The drill will be the same as in previous years – ride in the morning, afternoons free, then meet in the evenings for a meal.

A more detailed programme of the rides and evening meal arrangements will be sent out closer to the event

Please could you click on the link below and fill in the form if you are joining us.
