Monthly Meets

Post by JAX » Wed Sep 09, 2015 11:11 am

Ok, now I know the Ace meet is still active and the Western meet but which of the others are still going. I'm just trying to update the newsletter with active monthly meets.
If they are inactive, then get off your arses and get them going again :wickedgrin:

I used to post up every month and we got a few but never set the world on fire. Unfortunately, I have been off the bike with a bad wrist since Winster but I do text the regulars if I am out and about incase they wanna come.

I will carry on the monthly meets when I sort my wrist out, hopefully for the end of October.

I think northern meet should take place at squires Daz, even if people dont want to do the ride its a bit more interesting than a layby in Skipton. :thumbs:

Might be nice to do a midland monthly meet. Theres a few venues that spring to mind ( Bassetts pole or the Vic, Coalville) but open to suggestions.

any takers?

That's a fair point Martin, there is another cafe that recently opened about a mile down the road, more folk tend to go there but I get what your saying, we need Daz to rally the troops.

Oooo ya cheeky beggar. :upurs:

I can do squires for the monthly meet I suppose although the ride there is crap for me living 8 miles away.

Mind you there are some nice ride routes from there.

I'll be sticking with the last sunday of each month from 9.30 in summer and 10.30 am after autumn clock change. Keep an eye out for end of October as we are away last Sunday of September at Raddle inn.

Harris who organised the south west meet seems to be the guru on getting an area meet going as is Filo oop norf :respekt:
Have a word with either of them if you need any pointers but I think the general idea is if you persist it will happen. :thumbs:

Best thing is a fixed day and time I.e. 3rd Sunday of month 10 til 12, and if head boy not available then ensure a 2nd is in attendance to meet any Newby turning up. I think Mick and the rest of the SW regulars will tell you consistancy is the key.

Going over to Bassetts Pole this coming Tuesday 29th if any of the Staffs/West Mids guys are interested - or anyone else for that matter! :) Weather is looking promising so aiming to get there around 6 - 6:30ish :thumbs:

No worries Pog, family comes before everything else - Hope everything goes as well as can be expected in the circumstances.
