More Event’s in 2012 for your Calendar

Ex-Chairman Lindsay Urquhart recently mentioned the Broadford Bonanza held on the Easter week-end’s featured bike will be Indian so plans are afoot to beat BSA GoldStar numbers that turned out this year. The other is 25th March we are considering moving the Sitting Bull Rally to this week-end to mark Burt Munroe’s (as in The Worlds Fastest Indian) 111th birthday, this Rally will heavily be advertised for Scout Owners, it does not mean Chief Owners will be turned away, but if you are fortunate to own a Scout & Chief it would be great to see you on the “Little Chief”. Scouts from the early 20’s are very unique, your webmaster started on a 1921 Indian Scout in 1986 which is now the machine owned by Greg Hutchisin, I have many fond memories of it including a valve cover cap blowing out of the one-piece cylinder head on the road to Templestowe much to my wife’s dismay who was pillion at the time, the already mediocre performance dropped to zero, stopping at traffic lights with all the choof-choof noises didn’t help with the image I suppose. The cap was launched into the surrounding countryside as is probably still there to this day!
