26th January
Our AGM last Monday was completed successfully. Many thanks go to John Fisher and Geoff Harris, who have both been active committee members and have now left the committee. Whilst a big welcome to Mike Eytner and Andy Whitely who have joined. Bob J as Chairman, Bryn T as Vice Chair, Howard J as Secretary and Bill P as treasurer. Bob is to continue as the section scribe and needs some photos please that he can include with his reports. Andy has volunteered to take on the organising of the Fish & Chip run and the Vale of Glamorgan road event.
There is a new bike for sale in the bar - and a very good van, if you're interested.

22nd January
We have just recived Some sad news - Willy de Hoog from Antwerp passed away yesterday. He and Mady, his wife, have been friends of a number of us for some time. The photo to the left I took in Antwerp when we all stopped for a beer when riding the "Early Riders" weekend. Willy certainly looked after us all when we were there and he rode most of our Dragon Tours and was usually seen on the Scarborough and Cornish week long events.

17th January
I'm told that George Egan, a former section member, passed away during the first week of January. His funeral is at Coychurch Crematorium on the 27th January at 13.15 and afterwards at the Victoria Inn, Sigingstone. Sincere condolences to Gill and the family.

4th January
Does anyone know the whereabouts of a Vincent comet - reg no OPE836 - sold to someone, thought to be a John, who lived near Cardiff. Please let me know if you have any leads.

28th December
With only four names on the list for the proposed bus trip to Sammy Millers Museum, it is obvious that we cannot justify organising the event so it has been cancelled.
I have uploaded our events calendar for 2022, but please note there is a shortage of volunteers to organise some of the runs and events, so keep an eye on the calendar as some of our runs etc may well be cancelled. Those events have a "no organiser" in bold type against them.
The next meeting in Llanharry will be a Noggin & Natter on the 10th January - please make an effort to attend. Happy New Year to everyone.

14th December
A few notes and photos of our Christmas Dinner and prize giving are now on the reports page.

11th December
And now for a little Xmas story - anyone seen this on Facebook:

Someone spotted the fake and gave Phillip Tooth a mention as well.

2nd December
This is the final call for the Christmas dinner on the 13th as our orders have to be in on Monday next. Here is a brief report on the recent club General meeting, it's worth a read. The latest CMB magazine is on the button above.

19th November
Only 20 members turned up for the charity auction last Monday which was sucessfully handled by our Rob as auctioneer. We raised a total of 397, including quite a few donations on the night with one coming from Roger T on behalf of Simon Pritchard. Since then Terry H has made a substantial contribution. Well done everyone. The total stands at 497 and the section can afford the 3 to make our donation up to a round 500.
Don't forget the Xmas dinner and prize giving - just email your choices from the menu. So far I have only 4 names for the bus trip to Sammy Millers on the 9th Feb - and it would not be viable with those numbers, so if you'd like to go, please let me know.

11th November
I trust that you are all going to vote on the proposals put forward by the directors to be voted on at the next General Meeting later this month - best be quick, if you intend to do something. If you feel you need an analysis of all the confusing 'corporate speak' (wish they wouldn't do that, as we're only a motorcycle club) - have a read of this document.
6th November
Please note that we have our charity auction arranged for the meeting on the 15th - do please make an effort to attend and bring something with you that we can sell for charity. Our Christmas dinner and prize giving is set for Monday the 13th December - menu here. Please return the form to Jean or myself - failing that simply send an email with choices.
Vince has written up some of his memories of his raciing career and you can read about them on his page - here.
