President’s Message – February 2020

I’m looking forward to working with the committee again this year planning rides and events for Club members’ participation and enjoyment.

This year we have in store three Club rallies, starting with the Inverloch Rally in March, The Brass Monkey Rally in July and an October Rally back at the Bendigo Historic Motorcycle Club premises in Llanelly, assuming they will have us again.

With the above Rallies in place your committee will be concentrating on continuing our planning of our major event in March 2021, the Clubs 50th Anniversary Rally.

In March Sprocket we will be sending all members an Expression of Interest Form for you to complete and return to enable us to gauge expected numbers for this event. This is a vitally important part of the planning process so that based on indicated numbers attending, we can make forward bookings for meals and events etc that will take place during the course of the week-long rally.

Regular bulletins in Sprocket throughout the year and leading up to the rally, will keep members informed of the latest rally news and updates as we get closer to what is going to be a premium Club event.

Mark the dates in your calendar now (21st to 28th March 2021)

The rides during the rally will all cater for Classic Machines and we envisage there will also be some shorter rides for older slower machines as well, so bring two bikes on your trailer for a week of ultimate motorcycling indulgence. Not to understate the social aspect of the rally which promises to be equally enjoyable.

You will note in this issue of Sprocket a notice for the General Meeting in April this year. This meeting will be held on the 4th Wednesday of April not the usual 3rd Wednesday, so make sure you don’t miss out on this special meeting to be held at the RACV Noble Park headquarters on Wednesday 22nd April. Just so it is perfectly clear, there will be no meeting on the 3rd Wednesday of April at the Clubrooms.

Don’t forget to book your accommodation for the Inverloch Rally by the deadline of 28th February, rally entries close Friday 13th March – Entry Form and information sheet in December Sprocket. If you would like to order an Inverloch Rally T-shirt see order details in the information sheet and order by the deadline – 29th February.

Plenty to look forward to, hope to see you on the pub run to Jamieson 7th-8th March, details in Dec and this Sprocket.
