On Thursday 10th January we had the "Operation Transmatilda" book launch at the Benalla library, the home of Renold Chains where it all started back in 1953.
With both the original riders and a big surprise to me two of Mr. Mackenzie “who was the Manager of Renold Chains” daughters Elizabeth along with her husband Dom who traveled from Melbourne and Angela who now lives in Bendigo making a special trip to Benalla for the launch.
There were approx. 50 to 60 people that attended the launch all having the opportunity to meet and greet Vern, Mike and myself.
A big thank you to the Staff and the Friends of the Benalla library for inviting us, and providing the afternoon tea. With your support this made the book launch a night to remember for all those that attended.
