BSAOC Hampshire camp
« on: 05.07. 2019 09:17 »
The BSAOC are happy for non members to attend, as long as they are riding a BSA. It is on over the 26th to 28th July. The camping, (behind the pub) is free if you wish to camp. The Milbury pub 01962 771248 may be able to accommodate you if you call them soon. It's a good weekend. Last year the Saturday ride took us to a military museum in a huge fort. Saturday evening we have a knock out skittles event which is great fun. Sunday we ride to the coast and get treated to ice creams. The pub and its landlord are full of character. The pub has an internal well. The bucket of which was raised by a human treadwheel that is still there.

I have returned from deepest darkest Hampshire. Another 300 miles on the clock and another great weekend completed. Our Saturday ride-out was a visit to the Hampshire Air Ambulance station, which is at Thruxton race track, https://www.hiowaa.org/

We had a presentation, an inspection of the helicopter, a chat with the pilot and crew and a fascinating demonstration of their Sim-Suite, https://www.hiowaa.org/latest-news/paramedic-els-freshwater-speaks-hiowaa-immersive-simulation-training-suite-airbase-thruxton/

Sundays ride out was to Lee-on-the-Solent where we were treated to lovely ice creams. Very welcome as the day was HOT!

Also camping this weekend was Mr SRM; Steve Ronald Mcfarlane. I've seen him at many BSAOC gatherings but only found out yesterday that he started the SRM company and his initials gave it the name. As far as I know, he is no longer involved in the company. He makes and sells a very sweet electric starter for swing-arm BSA twins. https://www.oldbikemart.co.uk/inconspicuous-reliable-and-beautifully-engineered-steves-electric-start-solution-for-classic-bsa-twins/
