The Yowie is breeding!

Yes, 2 Yowies were spotted today at the You Yangs!  Well done to all the riders who participated today - it was hot out there and the Yowie is not a walk (ride) in the park!
Thanks to all the crew who made it happen:
-the GMBC Committee who do all the work behind the scenes
-the Friday setup crew led by Alan Flaherty
-the Saturday race crew led by Glenn Withers
-the 'A team' in registration
-the Rovers and GMBC volunteers who marshalled around the course
-the Timing team from Big Hill events
