A- A A+

Just a quick update. The Shudy camp trip was enjoyed by a few of our members who attended. There is one more evening of music in September, but we must emphasise its a non section event, and if you are going ,to make arrangements among yourselves. Nine of us had an interesting trip to Diss, courtesy of John Swan, and an excellent lunch at our usual cafe stop, which was busy but they looked after us well. Unfortunately, the scrap yard was closed,and despite a few phone calls, no one could be found. Of course, some of us will remember that we have a bit of history of finding places closed on our ride outs! We will just have to have another go. Good to see Mark and Chris Mac there as well. I escorted Vic back to the A14, where he was able to get up to speed to be back in Harwich for meeting. It was my longest ride for a while,and while the old bike went well, I realised that I was a bit out of practice riding more than half an hour at a time. Which brings me to our next clubnight on September 1st, when the last pre meeting ride will leave the Alma promptly at 7pm,as its now getting towards being dark at 8. We will be looking for suggestions for a daytime ride for September, and hopefully get to Mersea, for fish and chips, while seeing for ourselves how the other half live. Looking forward to seeing you all. Gordon
