I think I might do. Hopefully there will be some D3s present, I need to have a look at how some wires are routed.

Hello folks.

Same time, same place Wednesday 3rd of April. This is going to be somewhat a review meeting. If we get a few more people in this time we will keep this venue but if it ends up just being me and bart again (all that talk of a packed bar was sarcasm, I'm afraid) we will be moving to a different meeting location.

Hopefully I will see some of you soon, Phil.

Well!!! At least that's a start. Best wishes for the future, things can only get better once the Spring is here, good luck with what you're trying to do, hope it mushrooms soon and things start to get off the ground.DD.

Well, as it turns out, I'm afraid even I can't make it to this one. I had forgotten that I was going to stay with family and I leave on Wednesday morning. If anyone does end up going I would appreciate it if they could give me an update on numbers and opinions of the people who attend.

Thanks, Phil.

Well, bart informed me that we had a grand total of 2 people at the last meeting so I have decided to move to a location more central to me, bart and TravellingMan. The most central pub I could find was The Shepherd and Shepherdess at Beamish. The address is:

Shepherd & Shepherdess,

Beamish,

Stanley,

County Durham

DH9 0RS

 

It looks quite nice on the website but I will head over and have a look some time soon and see what it's really like. The website is: ** Please log in to view ** if anyone else wants to have a look and hopefully I will see a few more faces at the next meeting on:

Wednesday 1st of May at 19:00

Also, I realise that technically we are into the summer season and meetings are now supposed to be bi-monthly, but I thought until we sort a permanent place and get a feel for who will be attending regularly we will continue to do it on a monthly basis.

I have been thinking about this recently, as turnout isn't great but I would still like to do this; how about we integrate with an existing club? I know the VMCC's Northumbria section meets every Monday at Birtley RAOB Club and the South Durham section every other Tuesday at Middleton St George Cricket Club, perhaps we could check this out some time?

I sent an email to the VMCC Northumbrian Section Secretary about merging the meetings and got the following response:

 

Dear Philip

Thanks for your email. We would be delighted to welcome you and others to the Northumbrian Section Club night on Monday evenings - we meet weekly. However, this would be as fellow motorcyclists and members of the VMCC, rather than any official "merger".

Best wishes Hilary

Northumbrian Section Secretary

 

Which is good enough for me, how does everyone else feel about it?
