On March 25-27th 2011, Assoc. Prof. Chris Jackson, Dr Kelly McKelvey and Vicky Hatzis, all from the Sutton Laboratory, Institute of Bone and Joint Research (IBJR) in the Kolling Institute had the opportunity to attend the Ulysses Club National AGM in Newcastle. This social group of charismatic over 40’s is the largest organisation of its kind in the Southern Hemisphere. At the AGM, 3000 plus members shared their love of motorcycles with other branches from across Australia and the public. Beyond their interest in fast machines they have a vested interest in supporting their communities by raising money for charity. As a collective they have formed the Ulysses Club Arthritis Research Fund (UCARF).
