There were a few absentees for the April Club Night, myself included. Phil led a ride that saw six bikes have a swift tour of the depths of Essex, another bike arrived and there twenty present at the meeting. Colin reported his petrol tank saga succesfully sorted by George.
The March events, a ride to Pin Mill, and the lunch meet were well supported and enjoyed by those taking part. It was decided to schedule Jim's ride for Monday 16th, leaving from Hadleigh Market Square, and that the Colchester contingent would meet up at the BP garage on Ipswich road at 10.45am and make their way to Hadleigh for 11.30am start.
The first evening ride revisiting Mersea Myths will be on Wednesday 25th, leaving the Alma at 7.00pm finishing with fish & chips. The lunch meeting is at the Wooden Fender, Ardleigh on the 28th and the Intersection Meeting on the next day, Sunday 29th at The Bell Inn Castle Hedingham, from 11am. As we are helping with the organisation, I hope to leave Colchester about 10.15am to be there in time to help.
Paul has kindly sorted out a supplier of shirts etc. and an initial order has been placed. If you have missed out there looks like enough demand for a further order a bit later on.
George reported the problems of bikes that no longer legally needing an MOT might have their roadworthiness held into question without one. It has happened so there is no need to be complacent. I always have continued to have mine tested each year, just because its good to have someone else give it a check over.
Our Pre 65 scramblers have had a poor start to the season, but I'm sure they will get up to speed before long. The next club night is May 2nd and I hope to see you there as well as at the other events in April.
