Indeed as Richard says it was a very good BSAOC weekend! I only attended the one day and must get back into this camping lark as from what I head... much ale was consumed, eh Richard?  *lol* But hope your ok now.

As usual some fantastic bikes there, thinking of you A7 & A10 owners, I grabbed some A seris shots, in fact there were so many that I ended up taking a general view of them all!

Always some jammy M21 owner who walks away with a prize!   ;)

We went on Sunday afternoon, had a good look around and caught up with Richard what a nice job he did on the Police bike. Sorry we missed most people, everyone seemed to be moving around too fast for me, we did see Beezageezauk on his way out on his much travelled B31.

lots of nice bikes to look at, but not as many traders as last year and we had a good day.

Andy and Diane.
Regards

Andy...

I was gutted not to have met you, There I was looking for this crazy guy wearing a fleece flying jacket in that heat!  *lol* *lol* But your right, there was not that many traders there this year and the day ended quite early with the raffle being held Saturday evening. I could not understand why the bikes were not all parked around the arena like most years. Seems my M21 was the only one parked up away from the others.

Appologies Richard, I should have took a piccie of the plunger!

Had a great time at Wicksteed Park and the weather was fantastic.  My only criticism was that I thought the beer in the bar was a bit expensive at £3.10 for bitter and £3.30 for lager.  Maybe it's just me from "up north" not being used to these prices.

Anyway, I enjoyed meeting up with Nick and Richard and had a good natter with them.  Sorry I didn't see LJ.  I knew you were there mate but we must have been like ships that pass in the night.  Also Andy....at least you saw me abeit not to talk to.  I did leave a bit early because I wanted to visit relatives in Derby and needed to be home before dark.

Maybe I should have stayed for the presentation because I found out today that I was awarded the Long Distance Award.  Still, I'm not a gong collector so it didn't bother me that I was not there to collect it.

Well, that's the BSAOC National Rally over for this year....so who is going to the International Rally in the Netherlands in September??

Yes sorry LJ, did call in at your stand but you were in the arena. Maybe next year.

I knew if I predicted cold weather it would be a scorcher, so I wore a BSA tee shirt and burnt the back of my "£^%$£* neck.

Ray, your B31 looks like it had a very interesting life, nice to see bikes like that. Did you say the lager was £3.30 a pint, that cant be right, last time I bought a round, Mild was 12 1/2 new pence.

Yes we had a great time, even the ride on the train around the lake - Diane's idea not mine, but just reward for her listening to my long and fascinating explanations of the differences between side valve and overhead valve engines - which she no doubt found immensely interesting..

Role on next year.
Regards

Andy
