We had a record number of motorcyclists at our August clubnight and we signed up a couple of new members which is always encouraging. Some very tasty motorcycles in the car park. A dozen or so riders had a quick blast around the Essex countryside before the meeting. The drop off system worked a treat as everyone followed the rules!
Colin did a quick run through the events of July which I covered in the last blog, and its good to see that most events are still well supported. The presentation to Bernie made the Jampot Magazine but they couldnt help themselves and managed to edit it! I did manage to get the Section Notes in but its a real uphill task.
This month I will be leading a run into Suffolk, which always has proved popular, as there are several places to visit along the way, including Cakefield Classics, Dragonfly, Crown Street Motors, and of course Stephanie's Cafe! That's Thursday August 15th leaving the Alma at 10am so we can fit it all in.
Julian was volunteered to do a trip to the Codbangers at Sudbury as an evening run, date to be confirmed. George and I will be visiting the Jampot Rally and the Sammy Miller museum on the 23rd/24th and if you would like to join us contact me. Its about 134 miles to the rally site, and about an hours ride to the Sammy Miller Museum from there.
The Ladies lunch will be on Saturday 31st, venue to be decided. There is a Pre-65 scramble on the 25th, at Maylandsea, and we are all welcolme. Rides for September are open to suggestions ,and one is a visit to The Granary Museum at Buxhall near Stowmarket. We visited it a few years ago, and its a real trip down memory lane for those of us of a certain age!. There one or two other favorites that could be considered and if you do have somewhere you would like to visit, please let us know. The next clubnight on September 4th, will be the last to incorporate a pre meeting ride, which as usual will leave the Alma at 7pm. Look forward to seeing you at some of these,if not all.
