Welcome to this year’s Bike Show and BBQ!


A great big THANK YOU! to our landlord Terry for letting us use his car park and facilities again this year.


Come in and try Andy’s delicious leg of beef or some of the other BBQ specialities on offer, all perfectly complemented by a pint of Terry’s fine selection of beer & other drinks.


I hope you have all polished your bikes to the highest standard, as our judges are out there checking the car park for the

§         Best Hinckley Triumph

§         Best Other Bike


And for our Club members there is some additional excitement as the Club Awards (Club Member of the Year, Best Rider and Triple Conrod) will also be presented tonight.


Try your luck at this year’s raffle as well. There is a nice selection of prizes (some drinkable, some not) to be won and Linda and I are happy to sell you the tickets.


Please be aware of the neighbouring residential dwellings and try to be as quiet as possible when starting your bikes and leaving the car park.
