Vines Evening Print E-mail

Witley MCC were among the club and trade organisations invited to take part in an open Evening at Vines BMW in Slyfield Green, Guildford on 21st January.

A number of clubs including Odiham MCC and various trade stands took part. Witley’s appearance was coordinated by Bernard and Diana, with members including Graham Ingall, Graham Ford, Derek Prior and Laurie & Jane Richards also in attendance.

Our presence included the regular display panels and various literature and giveaways. More importantly, a good turnout of members meant that we were able to get involved in conversation with other visitors and promote the Club in a very positive light – and still have time to check out the other exhibitors and eat hot dogs and pretzels! the whole event was seen as a worthwhile way to keep the Club’s profile in the limelight and maintain our longstanding relationship with Vines.

 
My Dakar Experiences Print E-mail

Following on from a successful display at Vines BMW, Guildford, our next event was at our Compton Clubroom on Monday 16th February.

This was a talk on “My Dakar Experiences” by Paul Jay.

The talk attracted nearly 40 interested people (including his Mum and Dad) and the experiences covered by Paul were eyeopeners for many. Even those avid followers of the Dakar were surprised at the many near misses and the many “knock offs” during his epic struggle.

I think it clearly showed that those works riders with their luxury motor homes, many mechanics, and helpers were in a completely different event than those private entries. The privateer’s task was twice as hard and in some cases, twice as long time-wise.

As well as many slides and pictures, Paul had his bike, tent and travel box on show for all to see. Our thanks to Paul for a very informative and entertaining evening. and to Jo and Rebecca for supplying the wonderful spread of sandwiches and cakes.
