Those of you on Colins E mail list will have seen we made our first club foray of the year to Shotley Marina. Nine of us left the Alma/Church Road at 10-30, and followed a devious route to Shotley arriving just before twelve. Jim and Gordon B joined us to make a total of eleven. There was a lot of catching up to do, and I for one was relieved that we had managed to get out for a ride at long last. The cafe had a very good system for drinks and food,even if it was a bit pricey. But it all felt quite safe. I must apologise to Tony C for not thanking him for helping me out a few weeks ago. My excuse is that it was the excitement of the occassion! I shall make sure I buy you a pint on Wednesday. One good thing about starting at the Alma ,was that the landlord was there and he was very pleased to see us, and promised to clear the car park for us next Wednesday for our first club night since August  2020! I have to say he was very upbeat considering all he has had to put up with over the last year or so. He wants us to put on a good display so I hope we can have a good turnout and give him our support. There will be a short ride around the lanes before the meeting , leaving Church Road at 7pm. Colin and I are looking forward to a day out marshalling at the Pre 65 scramble at Marks Tey tomorrow, May 30th. Its open to the public. Looking forward to seeing you all on June 2nd. Gordon
