Notes regarding VMCC West Wilts Section Meeting, The Bell, Yatton Keynell, 25th Aug 2022

15 Members signed in on a fine summers evening, although it was noticeable that the night was drawing in earlier making it necessary for us to start considering the suitability of vintage lights for the ride home!

Des’s run on the 18th saw a good turnout with about a dozen bikes and several pillion passengers, all reports good!

The departure time for Derek’s run was moved forwards and this was publicised by separate email, which must have reached enough people, so we look forward to the account next meeting.

Unfortunately Betty Barber has had a tumble at home and had to pull out of organising her cream tea, hope you’re on the mend now Betty. At the meeting it had been proposed to still meet at the starting point for coffee and then ride on for an extra wandering afterwards; however subsequently at Derek’s run this idea was also scrapped, so unfortunately all activities for the day are now cancelled.

The run on the 18th September has also been cancelled due to a lack of suitable volunteer, and subsequent to the meeting I was informed that there was run with Swindon Section that day, and that a number of West Wilts members would probably be riding with them. It was therefore decided that it would be best to cancel, so if you do feel the need of a run that day, they will be starting from Sainsbury’s car park, Wootton Basset.

The next wandering is on 15th September there is no need to pre-order food so just turn up.

There was concern expressed at the meeting that VMCC was no longer contributing LARA and that some Sections were getting together to continue the association and that West Wilts should make a contribution.

There are some interesting track days at Castle Combe including the Velocette Club on Wednesday 7th September, so blow the dust off the spare Mark IIX and have a look.
