Year end round-up


Well this year came and went like a “shot out of a gun” as my Dad would say, speaking of which the past events this year that were fairly busy with runs, rallies and social events. The rallies were as such the Midnight Express in January with Pete Kime and his FOC “Shoo Roo”s for participants, February was a good Sitting Bull rally at Inverloch with Noel Thornby, then came July with our Rain in the Face rally at Beechworth that Gary Hogg ran superbly and we never got wet, October came and went with the Crazy Horse rally totally booked out at Dunkeld thanks to Pete Kime. The social events were well catered for as well with Christmas in July and the Christmas Party (November) both at the Old England Hotel In Heidelberg. Then of course our fearless Club Captain Owen Jones handled the first Sunday of the month rides (unless a rally was in that month) in his own unique manner. The Association meetings were on the last Tuesday of the month at the Pascoe Vale Hotel, plenty happened a new President and Secretary and treasurer, also new Own Rules were voted in and as usual a new Clubman of the Year was awarded at the AGM.
So 2020 the “Roaring Twenties” are upon us with our 10 year anniversary this year it is a virtual repeat except that in October we replace the Crazy Horse with a 10 day tour to Handorf in S.Aust (9-19 Oct) and back and that will be limited to 20 only individuals the first priority will be to old Indians then newer versions and then other red plate suitable bikes, I would suggest you get the old girl out and give her a good kicking and I don’t mean your missus.
