Upcoming Events

Dear Members,

It’s time to nominate a member for the Julie Garrett Memorial Award. This award recognises a member who has been helpful, enthusiastic, friendly and kind.


The award was created by the family of Julie Garrett to memorialise her spirit and love of riding. Julie was a popular member and many of our long-standing members recall riding with Julie. Those that did not meet Julie may know Julie’s sister Jane Ashton through Jane’s past membership of our club.

The award recognises and celebrates the epitome of a good HDARC member;

  1. Encouraging and supportive of others,
  2. Helps out i.e. setting up and packing up at rallies,
  3. May represent the club in competition and is willing to have a go,
  4. The recipient does not have to be a regular competitor, but should support HDARC’s events and be an all-round ‘good sport’ and friend.

Previous recipients are Louise Barry, Annette Luckman, Cathy Giles, Lisa Embling, Andrea Barton, Marc Harper, Melissa Dawson, Lisa Ronalds, Di Wilson, Sarina McDermott , Lisa Utting, Sharlene Wright, Kayleen Chatfield-Jones and Simone Freeman.

Please take a moment to consider who you think honours this legacy and send your nominations to the Club’s P.O. Box address (P.O. Box 269, Hurstbridge 3099) or by email melissadawson1961@gmail.com or text 0439 080 861 to myself .

Can I please have nominations in by no later than Friday, 29th November, 2019.

The winner of this year’s Julie Garrett Award will be named and presented with the perpetual trophy at our Christmas Party on Friday, 6th December, 2019.

Kind regards,

Mel Dawson

HDARC President
