    The Fish and Chip night attracted a good crowd as usual, only a dozen or so attended the luncheon meet, but those on motorcycles had a run round after, in good weather.

    Our October Club night features Andrew Spicer from Dee Atkinson Auctioneers, he is bringing a 1914 Fairfield, on which he has done some research, this will be sold at the next Sledmere sale.  All welcome.

    An absorbing talk on the history of Jaguar cars was the subject of the club night in May. Thanks Nigel.

    Our Pre 40,s was well attended, some 30 plus machines, not all strictly pre 1940, followed an entertaining route to the new Bomber Command Memorial at Lincoln. An interesting venue with a lot of interactive displays and an excellent cafe.  The excellent weather was a bonus, thanks to Stewart for organising a great day.

    The talk on flying Vulcan Bombers by J Connelly was absorbing, the detail required to keep one flying is immense. A very interesting evening.

    April's Bluestone Run caught hopefully the last of the bad weather, around 20 stalwarts braved the Lincolnshire Wolds on a damp, cold day. Thanks to Stewart and Harry for a good route.

    Coming up is our first Breakfast Run, on the 6th June, meet up at Caistor Lakes for 9.30am. All welcome.

    June club night is come on your bike night, no prizes, just get the machine out!
