April 19th fish and chips

17 people attended the fish and chips evening at 'The welcome fryer' in South Molton on Saturday 19th, it was good to see such a number come and to see wives and family too, we don't have many occasions when wives and families can come with us so that was nice and the venue does do a very good meal. 3 members came on their motorcycles even though it was quite chilly after the sun had gone down. As I said in the previous post, don't for get the relay rally on the 4th May and the Scrumpy run on the 11th, Chris advised us that the North Devon railway has an event also on the 11th which you could poodle along to after the Scrumpy if you had a mind, apparently there is free entry with an old motorcycle.

April 17th club night

Aprils club night was the much looked forward to observation evening put on by Keith and Cyril, photo's from previous runs were put up for a short while and questions asked after they had been taken down, this led to many groans and chuckles when we realised we had remembered almost everything except what was asked!. Ray and I ended up with the most points so won the Easter bunny chocs which were passed around for all to enjoy. It was unfortunate that only 10 people were able to attend, it's a lot of work for Keith and Cyril to prepare and we are very grateful. Rod Hann was on hand to give us the latest update on the AGM which he promised he would do, thanks Rod and Carol.
Next run will be the relay rally on May 4th so lets see you out and about getting your cards stamped.

April fools run 2014

Ready for the off

some of the bikes at start

in sunshine today

this Ariel has been some miles already
 What a glorious day for a really good rideout, nearly 30 bikes rolled in for the April fools run 2014, some from as far as Cornwall and Taunton. After a good coffee we were off on a superb route lead by Chris who organised todays trip. Through Holsworthy and then head off to skirt round the back of Launceston, a few miss turns and darting off for fuel around Tavistock but we soon safely arrived for an excellent meal at Bettys near Sourton. After lunch we went back to tank up at the Shell garage before setting off to Winkleigh and finally Eggesford. Ray found out today that the handle on the back of his Matchless that he thought was for lifting it on to it's stand, is in fact a connection for a petrol tanker!!. All in all a cracking day out which I'm sure everyone enjoyed, thanks Chris for the route, Mike who did tail end with me and to Matt for the photo's. Now don't forget it's the fish 'n chips run this Saturday at South Molton, bring the family let's see if we can involve the family a bit in our lovely hobby, see you there folks.
