3/4/24 From Briony Hunt:
My dear Father, Peter Roland Phillips recently passed away after a long battle with cancer.
Dad was a member of the Ulysses club for many years, during the 90’s, doing lots of rides and loved his Ulysses jacket with the logo.
On behalf of his widow, Brenda Phillips and our families, I would like to extend an invitation to any members that may remember Dad to attend his memorial service in the Veale Gardens, South Terrace on Saturday 27th April from 1100 - 1200. There will be an unveiling of a plaque that is being erected on one of the benches, opposite O'Halloran Street on the North side of the parklands, near one of the fountains. There will be signage up to indicate the location and if you can all come on your bikes, he would have loved that! The louder the better.

2/3/24 The SABC breakfast today at North Haven Surf Lifesaving Club was pretty good. Photos in the Gallery.
The April breakfast is at our old favourite, Oasis Gardens, Belvidere.

7/1/24 The feedback on our meeting at the Mile End Hotel has been pretty positive.
So our next meeting, the branch AGM, will be there.
We scraped in with enough committee nominations to stay alive.

The nominations for our 2024 committee are:
President, Maurice Stevens;
Secretary, Ken Wagnitz;
Treasurer, Robin Butler;
Welfare Officer, Ian Pascoe;
General Committee, Ray Murray, Gary Priest.
-So no voting required at our AGM. But come along anyway.

22/12/23 January meeting venue:
Our Jan 2024 meeting will be at The Mile End Hotel, 30 Henley Beach Rd, Mile End.
We have a room to ourselves, seniors prices, and Thu special of $25 burger and beer.
Plenty of parking around back of the hotel.

Branch AGM at Feb meeting:
The January meeting is the last chance to get in nominations for our 2024 committee.
Gary won't be standing as president. Peter will be leaving, travelling around Oz.
We need more committee members, and a new president. Failing that, we hand over $6k to UCARF and become an informal branch.
Have a serious think about it.
You can download a nomination form here.

12/12/23 Our December Odyssey magazine is on Our Magazine page. Thanks Maurice.
