Ardingley Show March 2018

    

The Ardingly show on Sunday 25th March was a spectacular event for the Surrey section. I counted 20 bikes on our stand and we may even have had more if you added in the Brooklands Motor Museum display of bikes. Mike Braid brought along a very special Manx and the Peter Williams blue factory JPN racer. We also had a visit from Mike Jackson, who was also very impressed with our display and also very impressed with the Surrey branches activities over the years. Mike was always surrounded by many of our members talking to him and asking questions.  Unfortunately we never won any awards, but who needs awards when we knew full well we were the best stand there by a country mile. We can not win it every time we attend so this time the best stand went to the AJS & MOC stand.

We also had many visitors to our stand who asked about membership of the Surrey branch. We have given out so many cards out at our past shows we shall have to now have to order some more. I keep many of them in the side pocket of my trousers so if ever I get asked such questions I can instantly give a card to any future or prospective members who wants to join the Surrey branch. .

To Simon Smith, Ken Rawlinson, Geoff Cole Chris Barraclough, Mike Petryszyn, Malcolm King, and John Blades for their extensive efforts on behalf of the branch may I say and give them all huge thanks. To any one I have missed out can I also extend my huge amount of thanks for your efforts? To Simon who with out his huge efforts we would not have a stand, and to Ken for getting Mike Braid and his very special Norton’s, and the Brooklands Motor Museum involved with our Ardingly show extravaganza. To all those that came along and brought bikes once more a huge amount of thanks for taking the time and making the effort to do this for us. Max Grooves from the Essex branch also brought along two bikes, a 1964 Atlas, and a 1953 IOM, 350 Manx.

I brought along a black Norton base ball hat with a small pin badge in it, but most unfortunately I have now mislaid it. This I wore for most of the show, so if any one who has picked it up can they be so kind as to inform me so that I can have it back please?

The Surrey branch on Sunday rocked it Totally.
