2023 RATeX advance notice

The Committee has locked in the following dates for the 2023 Ratex:

Saturday 25th March 2023 to Sunday 2nd April 2023

A brief overview of the proposed route is to depart from Cavan, travel through Jamestown and Peterborough to Broken Hill and the Meningie Lakes, come back to Mildura and then follow the River Murray down to Tailem Bend and Wellington to Langhorne Creek.

The final itinerary will be determined after Perry Toynton and Linda Hancock have completed their reconnoitre when the weather warms up a bit.

So – watch this space and the Ratex Blog!!
