Ray: JB’s funeral was last Thursday, I am sorry it took me so long to write this.
The funeral service was a brilliant family affair and it was wonderful to see how much he was loved.
It revealed a lot about JB and his various passions and his whole life demeanour which was wonderful.
There were many ARC people at the service and that was very heartening for the family and frankly to me and the rest of the ASSC/Pirates.
If you have any snippets on JB, they can even be nice, please put them here… I heard a few from those that attended the service. They made me smile.
Vale JB. missed.
Dom: Agree – it was wonderful to see many ARCers at the service and later at the wake.
JB was a special person and a special mate and will be sorely missed.
I recall doing the Kinglake ride together some years ago and as the ride commenced, we were drenched but he wanted to completed the ride regardless. He made the right decision because it ended in sunlight.
He would often come past and drop off baguettes that he made and never came over empty handed, always with pastries which we enjoyed over coffee.
There were many special moments on the ASSC rides with his generation of unique words.
ARCers, the STORE is now open.
The last day for placing orders is 25 Oct 2022, 11.59 pm.
The delivery ETA is 12 Dec 2022.
Couple of points to keep in mind:
– the store is open for 2 weeks only. That way we can get delivery before Christmas.
– have included winter items such as jackets and tights… The reason for this is that post-summer everyone is thinking warm rides and doesn’t order. Cold rides are not so distant and perhaps you’ll be thinking ahead to next winter and order!
– included a new item the ARC POLO shirt. Somebody from Mt Waverley was very keen on this item…
– Small orders … if we do not get enough of a particular type there MAY be and adjustment of price (10-30%) or cancelation of that item. If you have ordered and paid you, I’ll get you to top up or refund if we cancel the item.
– postage should come up as the default and will add $16.50 to the order on checkout.
