14th December
Latest CMB magazine now on the button above.

10th December
Last call for dinner choices, if you intend to come. Raffle prize donations will be welcome on the night.
The Wednesday evening rideouts have been finalised and are on the calendar on the events calendar page
Briefly they are:
April - The Black Cock, Caerphilly mountain
May - The Victoria Inn, Sigingstone
June - Y Maerun, Marshfield
July - Red Lion, A48, Bonvilston
August - Creigiau Inn, Creigiau
September - The Farmers Arms, Aberthin

4th December
There is a mistake in the section notes in the December journal - the "day after Boxing day run" is not to start anywhere at all. It is simply a ride from the riders home to the Red Lion on the A48 in Bonvilston to arrive around 12 noon.
Another calendar change is to the Cheddar weekend - due to a clash of dates with the Cotswold section Felix Burke trial, the Cheddar weekend has been brought forward a week to the 30th/31st March. That gives us a small problem in that we have the Spring run listed for that weekend. I do not propose that we amend our calendar, so unless annouced here, the Spring run will take place on the 31st as listed.

26th November
I've now added most events to the events calendar in the Lounge. If anyone spots a mistake or has anything to add, then please get in touch. The 23rd June is a busy day with 5 events listed, including our 'Remember the Dragon'. If you have a few minutes then please complete the FBHVC survey on the costs of owning and running an old vehicle - it's not too onerous and is important for the FBHVC to analyse the state of the old vehicle movement in the UK.
I've deleted the old Cotswold section newsletter button from above as the Newsletter ended with the last one from Reg Eyre in December 2017. I still have the copies, so if there is one that you'd like, I can email it.

20th November
Well done to everyone who attended the club last night for the charity auction. It was a good night which raised 400 from the sales - amiably run by Rob, with John as backup. We also had 105 of cash donations from Barry, Roger, Bob and two non-members one of whom was present and wanted to contribute. Barry's gold plated pickle onions produced 111 - they do have a secret ingredient I'm told, and are well worth the cost.

6th November

23rd October
Free laptop computer in the Bar.

The changes are in italics and they are a bit haphazard, I must say.

3rd July
Last nights BBQ went off very well, especially as the weather was very good. We had two new members attend, which was a real positive. We were down on numbers a bit at something like 40 odd, but much of the grub went, which means that I don't have to eat burgers for the next two weeks.

Some of us are off to Ireland on Friday, so this is a reminder for the "Follow the Velo" run on Sunday the 15th - 10.00 am meet at the Caerphilly Mountain Cafe for a 10.30 start.
