Blue Liners Australia
Police and Friends Motorcycle Club
The Blue Liners is a vibrant club with hundreds of members comprising serving police, retired police and their friends from many parts of Australia.
The Club’s AGM was conducted on the 22 October,2022 at Port Macquarie. Firstly, I hope all those that attended the AGM arrived home safe and dry on Sunday. I thank each and every one of you who attended the AGM and thank you for your ongoing support of this great Club.
Numbers were down on previous years, and this is understandable given the prevailing weather conditions and I applaud those that did ride. I also applaud those that used a little thought and travelled to the event in their Tin Tops. No shame in how you get there, it is the destination and the fellowship when you arrive.
We had a great time and important decisions were made by the few on behalf of the many. Having said that, the following are some of the decisions made.
National Executive re-elected unopposed.
Myself. returned as National President, Michael Turek as Senior National Vice President, John Mares as National Secretary and David Robson as National Treasurer.
