Thank you to ray for organising the run and to everyone who turned out, the run was very good even though l went slightly wrong for the second year, maybe next year will be 3rd time lucky!!!. A very good turn out this year, it is good to see the Dorset Runs so well attended.
Thank you to all who attended the AGM last night, also to all who have volunteered to be on the Committee, it was nice to see so many members volunteering and turning up.
Thanks again to all who have volunteered to still organise the runs.
Peters discussion was interesting and as Chairman l can see both sides of the discussion.
Lets look forward to another good year riding our bikes (assuming the Sunbeam starts!!!)
As everyone knows Ray is stepping down as Chairman, l was expected to take over but now this will not be the case as l am back at work full time running my old business and do not have the time.
Therefore we need nominations for a new Chairman by the time of the AGM, the Section can not run without one so someone is going to have to step up to the position please.
DoeDoess anyone want to do this quiz, it is only polite that l get back to them and let them know.
We have been invited to make up a team for the annual Stonehenge Section VMCC annual quiz on 20th September 2017.
Do we want to put a team together? if so can you let me know and l will let Keith Starks know.
Details are below:
We meet at Redlynch Sports and Social Club, Woodfalls, near Downton, Wiltshire, SP5 2LN.
Club telephone number is 01725 511281.
The quiz will start promptly at 8pm and refreshments will be provided at the end of the quiz during marking of the answer sheets.
Directions to the Redlynch Sports and Social Club:-
From Salisbury take the A338 to Downton. Turn left at the traffic lights in Downton.
Continue on this road for 3 miles to the village of Woodfalls.
The Sports and Social Club is on the left hand side immediately after the Woodfalls Inn.
There is plenty of parking at the club.
I mentioned in the last post l did about the AGM that l would let you know what posts will be vacant, well all posts are up for grabs.
Most important is we need a Chairman as Ray is standing down and l will not be taking on the duty, someone needs to come along and volunteer for this as we cant run without a Chairman.
There are 7 or 8 more post including Treasurer, Secretary and general posts.
Without these posts being filled we can not run so it is important we fill these as a matter of urgency,
It is worth remembering a lot of the present committee have been doing this for a long time an it is time someone else took on the task to keep the Section running.
If you are interested or want to know more please contact one of the present Committee members who will be more than happy to discuss it.
Remember it is your Section so please help out.
We seem to have lost track of some of the trophies and l have been given the task of bringing it up to date and making an electronic format for the future.
Suggestion is to bring any trophies you have to the club night on 13th December and l can log it, alternatively and email to me (firstname.lastname@example.org) with which trophy, when you received it and which run and for what.
It is important if you have any allergies or special dietary needs to contact Ken Druce (Kenneth.email@example.com) so we can try and cater for this in advance, not on the night.
Please also bring your membership number.
The night will be very informal, but we will have a drink to our departed President, Ted Foote and there will be a raffle for a book on the TT donated by one of our members and signed by Guy Martin, so prepare to dig deep!!!
There is a committee meeting on 1st August, is there anything anyone wants to bring up at the meeting?, if so please email me on firstname.lastname@example.org beforehand.
I would like to thank all the people who brought their bikes over the weekend to be put on the Dorset VMCC section stand, it looked really good, with a good selection of club eligible bikes.
I would especially like to thank Ray & Linda for spending the whole weekend there doing most of the organisation and all the others who helped make it a success on the days.
This is a good showcase for the VMCC and hopefully will bring in new members to the club.
Photos of the weekend are to follow.
