Mid Week Lunch Run
Wednesday, 31 May 2023 11:00 am
This will be a return visit to the Yass Golf Club Bistro. Sadly, several other possible venues including the Captains Flat and Majors Creek hotels only open for lunch on weekends.
Meet at 11.00am at the Dinosaur Museum carpark. We’ll be travelling to Yass along the Barton Highway, still a slower drive than normal with temporary speed limits in place while highway duplication works continue. The poor condition of many local rural roads continues to preclude an alternative scenic route.
The Bistro menu offers a good range of club fare and a pleasant outlook over the golf course fairways. Please let Rick know by Sunday afternoon 28 May if you plan to join us so that he can confirm numbers with the Bistro on Sunday evening.
