This year the DSMRA AGM was held in Murrayville Victoria!

About 30 members from across Australia (ACT, NSW, QLD, SA & VIC) converged on Murrayville for a big weekend of sand-riding and, ride tales, comradery, and shenanigans. Most arrived on Thursday/Friday with a few hardcore sand-lovers staying on for a few days either side. The adventure-riders took a scenic route, spending roughly a week either side getting to the AGM and back home.
