G'day Leigh,

Having any joy on a BNSW replacement?

Sounds like you had a good trip.
At 2:26pm on December 8, 2008, Al said…
Neither although I did study there once, just an opportunity
for BikeNorth or yourself perhaps

Thanks Leigh. NCM will be discussing BNSW membership tomorrow night, so I'll see what happens there too!
