November 2013

Bruised or broken? Dave’s ribs were one or the other so he cancelled his Sunday run. Such was the effort he put into working on his Harley something went ping  and it wasn’t mechanical. Three of us ignored the instructions in the newsletter and just turned up on spec only to find a deserted car park. So we went for a ride anyway! And it seems such a long time ago already, but in reality it really is only a matter of a few weeks ago that were having an Indian summer. At least it was dry for the BBQ which was very well supported. Thanks go to Paul and Sandra for sorting out the food but what really makes it a night is when you lot turn up. Nice to see you all.

Storms and gales resulted in a cancelled charity ride with Mid Lincs MAG. A check of the route found roads flooded, gravel beds washed on the highway and downed trees and branches . Perfect riding conditions for a few of our members I’m sure but definitely not what you want for a ride involving the public.

Grumpy Git (our Chairman) produced an entertaining quiz that was won by Paul Taylor and a well behaved Dave Goodger. Just one point in it saw them beat the Bickering Carrotts into second place. Look forward to a quiz from Paul and Dave in the New Year.

Charitable choices – it’s our annual toy run and charity event on Sunday 1st December. As last year we are taking toys to the Pilgrim Hospital and collecting for the Boston Women’s Refuge. Bring something for one or bring something for both, the choice is yours. See Events diary for more details. If the weather’s rubbish, come in the car – the need for donations doesn’t change with the weather.
