Mystery run Sept. 11th 2011

Woody and I were unavailable for this run but I have had briefings from Ray and Merv so here's how it went. 14 riders set off from the railway station at Okehampton on a day that was supposed to have very bad weather but turned out to be quite good. Ian led the group around the back of Launceston to arrive at Daidstowe by about 11.20, the drop off system was used as the run could get quite strung out. Nice to see Alan in the Morgan again and a rider on his first run with the club, John from Bude on his Suzuki. 8 Cornish riders were waiting at the Museum and a cuppa and biscuits were enjoyed following a quick tour of a very interesting Museum. All 23 set off on a nice rural trip around Bodmin moor past Crowdy etc to arrive at the lunch stop at Otterham cafe, after a good meal everyone set off on their own way home. The only rain was during the lunch stop so this did not affect anyone too much. Keith had to ride his Bonnie as his T100 wouldn't run properley but I am told it is now ok. If anyone can E mail me photos I will post them seperately. Ray has asked me to thank Merv for organising the Cornish end of the run and Ian for leading the group to Davidstowe. Next run is the Autumn run from Sandra and Den's on October 9th, hope to see you there.
