12th October
As most will know there is a VMCC forum, for members to interact with each other. Against my better judgement, I joined and found some of the posts interesting, however, there was an atmosphere of "don't dare to question the management" and I was rebuked for simply asking how many redundancies were there to be at HQ. Today, I have recived information about a second forum that has been set up to be able to discuss the management of the club in a more open manner - details here, if you wish to join, just follow the link in the document.

The second HQ button above contains some comments on the minutes of the meeting between the directors and the Area reps, along with the President. The minutes of the meeting can be found in the Members Area of the main HQ website. At the time of writing this, access is not available to that area and has not been for three days now.

There have been quite a few interpretations regarding MOT's that have been extended due to the Covid-19 situation. The extention applies to all MOT's that were due for renewal after the 31st March 2020. It's best to ignore all the experts and just click this link and put in your reg number - you'll then get the exact date by which you need to sort an MOT. Further down the page there is past test results, passes and fails,  and that can make interesting reading.

I'm told that the Cornwall week next year is arranged for the 4th - 11th September.

Yesterday I attended the funeral of my brother John, who, some of you do know. I now have the job of disposing of the contents of his workshop etc. Some items have been posted in the 'for sale' in the Bar. I shall be visiting Swindon this coming Sunday, the 5th, so if you're interested in anything, apart from his bikes, which are spoken for, please let me know and I can bring it back to Sth Wales in my van.
