Our December Club Night was well supported with 25 members and 2 guests, and we all enjoyed a good evening with sandwiches & mince pies, courtesy of the Alma landlord.
Colin ran through the usual, and I apologised for calling off the ride on the 26th because of the weatherI hope to go for a ride on Saturday 14th December from The Alma leaving at 10.30am weather permitting.
Colin then told an interesting tale involving our late member, Russell and his association with the USAF, and his books. In view of that we need a rethink on what to do with the books left to us.
We have our evening on the 18th December at The Alma when we thank the landlord and his staff for their hospitality through the year, and all are welcome.
Steve is organising a green lane event so keep in touch with him if you want to go along. I still manage to get the section notes into the jampot, but they are mostly retrospective, although I see the deadline has been extended. We have the next Club Night on the 8th January, and the Awards Evening on the 15th and it's not too late to sign up.
We are looking for suggestions for rides and visits for 2020, so do let us have your thoughts. Merry Christmas. Gordon
Just a quick update.Sorry we postponed the ride on the 26th, but the weather forecast prove to be accurate, and we would have got wet! Club night next wednesday,and we hope to see you all. Dont forget to return your trophies. We have a couple of potential day time rides for december. Lots of other things going on in December so keep an eye on the events page if you want to come along.Lunch meeting this Saturday.Everyone welcome. Gordon
Good to see you all at last night's club night. The new landlord at the Alma made us very welcome arranging the space for us, and even buying a club T-shirt,as well as making a donation to the club funds. Let's hope we can keep supporting him in return. About 28 of us heard Colin run through the October events, and the other parish notices. There were even some bikes in the car park!
We managed one ride out to Pin Mill, and the off-roaders had a day out and Vic rode at the Marks Tey Pre-65 scramble, and recieved an award for attending all the rounds, so well done. Paul also distributed the latest clothing order, and kindly delivered mine as I left it behind!
This month's runs will be daytime runs, leaving the Alma at 10.30am - weather permitting. I don't mind a bit of rain but I'm not so keen on frost and snow! If it looks like bad weather, contact me for information. On the 12th we will finish up at the cafe in Great Yeldham, just up the Toppesfield road, and on the 26th, we should finish up at Wrentham for lunch, after a quick visit to Lowestoft. Steve will organise an off-road event if enough of you let him know you would take part.
Just a couple of notices. Please bring along your photographs to enter the photo competition to the next Club night. And if you are coming to the awards evening dinner, provisionally scheduled for January 15th 2020, please let us know asap, so we can negotiate a good deal!
