Good to see you there Jeff; and everyone else too!  :thumbup: 


The advertised 'fair' was actually the 'normal' monthly Meadows Market taking just a little liberty & advantage of when their market fell due with relation to the Easter Week-end & the annual Meadows Easter Fair. That annual Easter Fair is still on, runs from the 19th to the 22nd, and I suspect it'll be packed! But the 'fair' we saw yesterday was interesting enough for a country towns' weekend market, there was some interesting stuff & some 'yeah really?!?' stuff; there was some 'good buys' (very nice Home-made Jams) & some 'not so good' buys (someone's garden shed junk with 2 figure+ prices slapped on them!) But hey, these markets are what they are, and we whiled away some time checking it all out & chatting to the punters.


Those of us who went on for a ryde had a gentle run down thru Maccy, where all the pubs & eateries were packed out, so we rode on to Strath & the Robin Hood for a very nice lunch; followed by a gentle ryde back up to Wistow, where Stu stopped to check out the new 'drive thru cafe', & that left two travelling on to Mt Barker, where I peeled off for home & Dutchie headed off thru the Hills to his place. The weather was kind & we had good company, conversation, & ryding - what more can you ask!  :great:


Thanks all, catch you next time!  :wave:

That's great timing, and coming from Echunga makes it easy!  :ride:


Just follow the big green signs & when you hit the cross roads at Meadows, there's a park on your left and a servo on your immediate right, while the pub is sorta over the road & a bit right; well that intersection is where you hafta choose to turn left to go to Maccy or Goolwa, or turn right to go towards Kuitpo or Kangarilla; and when you hit that intersection, Turn Left, you're almost there!  :cool:


Once you've turned left, the Bakery is about 200m straight ahead & on the Right. If you get as far as the school on your left, you've gone too far. But I'm pretty sure there'll be some Spyders & Ryders there by then, and even if you miss the bikes, I doubt you'll miss the madly waving eejit sitting at the benches out the front - that'll likely be me!  :great:


See y'all Sunday!  :woot1:

Plan to leave freeway at Hahndorf down to Echunga.
At this stage it is a 9ish leave home, around 10ish for Apricot slice.

Middle of town, sorta opposite the footy oval entrance - it's actually called Meadows Bakery and Tearooms, & the official address is 50 Mawson Rd, Meadows, but you'll probably be able to see the Spyders in the car park, either out the front or down the side.  :ok:

If you want more than that, give us an idea about which direction you'll be coming from? Kuitpo, &/or Kangarilla direction? Or from Echunga, Hahndorf, or Mt Barker way? Or maybe from the Macclesfield, Ashborne, or Goolwa direction? It's not really a big place tho, you only get a couple of options... :cool:

NO WAY Stu! I've saved up a couple of months worth of my 'Apricot Slice vouchers' just so I can have more than one this Sunday! I might even buy extra so I can keep a couple up my sleeve for Just'in on the ride, but I reckon I owe myself at least TWO, maybe even THREE!  :confused0068:   :bananadevil:   :ok:
