Notes regarding VMCC West Wilts Section Meeting, 08th Aug at Chippenham Rugby FC

Further to all the Head Office shenanigans, Bob Fisher will be attending the next management meeting on 12th August, health permitting, so hopefully there’ll be lots of good news then.

The VMCC stand at the South Cerney was a success with several VMCC sections attending. There were 300 bikes at the show.

Bill’s run attracted 19 riders and positive comments from all. Unfortunately technical issues cut the return run slightly short but otherwise all went well. Thanks Bill.

Next weeks wandering is to a different venue to that previously publicised, see below. If you do not receive Colin’s emails reply to JF or vmccwestwilts@gmail.com Pre-order food asap.
