Just a quick update on club events so far this month. The July club night was well attended with 22 members. Five guests, and a few apologies. Ten of us ventured on the ride before the meeting. 22 bikes in the car park, with moderns outnumbered by Classics. I believe we recruited two new members. We arranged a couple of rides after asking for volunteers. Steve took us to Littley Green to The Compasses, on roads quite new to me and others. A good evening with 13 bikes and one guest doing the ride. Good food as well. Steve also guided those of us that were lost back to Tiptree!
John Swann took us on an equally interesting trip to Andrewsfield airfield, again on roads that most of us hadnt seen. Seven of us had a good natter over lunch, and we all rode back together to Earls Colne. The Green Laners had another run out on the 14th. I gather this is getting more support on each outing. Too messy for my liking!
The next club event is the lunch meeting on August 3rd at The Ship in Tiptree. We have an open invitation to a Hadleigh club ride on August 8th starting at Hadleigh Market square on august 8th at 10.30am, finishing at The Donkey and Buskins. I shall be organising a daytime ride in August, probably into Suffolk, and we will be looking for an evening ride volunteer. At the moment, just George and I are visiting the Jampot Rally on August 23rd, returning on the 24th, after visiting the Sammy Miller museum. Its a good ride down to the south coast and it would be good to have a few more come along. You could just visit the Sammy Miller museum on the 24th, we have done it on bikes in one day before, or use a car. The next club night is Wenesday August 7th. There will be a pre-meeting ride starting at 7.00. I hope to see you all there. Gordon
