    Motel

    I have called and checked out a couple of motels for any of the dalusion crew that might need a shandy after riding on Saturday and are looking for a place to stay the best one i came up with was.

    Cobblestone court motel
    86 Chapel street Tauranga
    07 576 9028
    Res 0800 506 306

    The place is a U shaped out fit and is about 5 minutes from the ramp and around the same to town.The lady i talked to said they may even be able to jack up a hose for flushing out.
    The final decision is yours!
    Here's hoping for a f#*kin good weekend!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Yea good times alright we will have to jack it up so it's high tide next time so we would have a plan "B" in case the waves run away again. A dam good bunch with all the same things in mind !
