Section AGM

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.

Riverside Cafe / Moto Corsa 26th August 2017

Good turnout at yesterday’s Last-Saturday-of-the-Month Breakfast Meet at the Riverside Café on the A30 near East Stour.

After some initial refreshment here, a few of us continued into Gillingham to tryout the café and gardens at the newly opened Moto Corsa dealership…and very nice it was too, so I for one, will be back many times…

Riverside Café Photographs:

The little 1932 250cc BSA led to much discussion concerning the definition of “patina”, “oily rag” and “junkyard dog” etc. But whatever your thoughts, when it blasted away from the café going east on the A30, it sounded and performed more like a 500 rather than a 250; most impressed!

New Local Services Page

I’ve made a start on a page to list local services. A few of us are new to Dorset and/or classic motorcycling and it would help us to know about recommended local companies that more established members have used to keep their bikes on the road.

You can find the page on the “Local Services” link below but please note, you must be logged in to view the contents of this page.

You can also find this link on the new “Members Only” menu item on the top right of all pages — this menu item is also only visible when logged in.  Not got an account?  No problem, just email the secretary at secretary@dorsetvmcc.co.uk

AGM – Committee Members

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.

Trophy Amnesty

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 (allenphill@hotmail.com) with which trophy, when you received it and which run and for what.

Thank you

Phil Allen

Sections 50th Birthday 13th September

It is important if you have any allergies or special dietary needs to contact Ken Druce (Kenneth.druce@homecall.co.uk) 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!!!
