The section had a very busy September, with more than the usual number of events. I would like to thank John Swann, Chris Mac, Steve Toy and Julian for organising these events in my absence. Colin covered them at this months clubnight, and all were well supported and with evening and daytime rides, green laning and pre-65 scrambling, as well as the odd one or two spectating at Snetterton, we hope there is something for everyone in the club.

It's good to hear we have already hit the target for our BMF subscription for next year and that the Hadleigh Club has as well. We need to keep ourselves covered with the BMF, not forgetting they are lobbying on our behalf all the time.

It was decided that the January Club Night be moved from the 1st to the 8th to avoid clogging up the Alma on a busy evening.It was also unanimously agreed to hold an annual Dinner and Awards evening, and subject to confirming the date with New Times Tiptree, it will be held on January 15th. We would like to have an idea of numbers attending so please let us know ASAP, and any help in organising the event would be most appreciated. Don't forget to get your photographs ready for the photo competition. 

The September lunch meeting has carried over into October and it's this Saturday 5th Oct in the depths of Norfolk. Also this coming weekend is the Copdock Show. We have several invites for our section. The Hadleigh Club have a stand and some of our members will be exhibiting bikes, the East Suffolk Section have a stand and we can leave helmets with them, The Japanese Owners Club have a stand and Jim Lomax will have a bike on their stand, and finally the Pre-65 group will be there and we have invites to have a blast on several scramble machines. The Green Lane Group have a run on the 20th and contact Steve for more details as you may be going somewhere new. There will be a Pre-65 Scramble at Maylandsea on the 13th Oct and any help would be appreciated. And I shall be leading a run from the Alma at 10.30am on the 15th finishing with lunch at Pin Mill. The next lunch meeting has yet to be decided and the next club night is November 6th so see you there if not before.
