Is there any other way of registering for this without printing and scaning and emailing the form, I dont have access to a printer or scanner any more.

Would love to be able to attend.

Cheers

I could agree with you, but then we would both be wrong

In light of the recent policy by the government on the virus will this still be on ?

The pioneer run and the Isle of man TT have already been cancelled

I'm sure that discussions will be under way, Dave and we'll know asap. Especially as the demographic for this event will include many over-70's and the most vulnerable. As with many things just now, it's a bit of a case of wait and see. Hopefully by June things will have improved massively, but obviously decisions have to be made well in advance. Watch this space.....

I agree, although we live in serious times,  its important not to knee-jerk everything away.  It does no harm to plan and then wait and see but I guess its up to the show organisers.

Of all the diverse things I get involved with I consider evenings alone in the shed with spanners and screwdrivers and riding one of my Bantams solo in the fresh air to be my least risk activity and even if we just ride to Kelsall, check-in (by shouting our details from a distance) then ride home again it's something good to look forward to and count me in.   I will eat my crash helmet if anybody gets COVID19 from riding a BSA !!

Don't forget to wipe your helmet down with anti-bac when you are finished with it for the day. 

Fingers crossed

As posted elsewhere on this Forum - the Stafford Show has been rescheduled from April, to the weekend before the Annual Rally. I'm also aware that other major shows at the NEC etc have been rescheduled from March/April to June/July. So there are some wise souls who believe that we will be in 'recovery mode' by then. They must've spent some time and effort investigating this - so who am I to question them?? As Sponge says above - it does no harm to plan, and maybe wait and see. No doubt Tim Randles is all over it.

I feel like anyone capable of owning a bantam, must naturally be immune to most health problems!

I think all non essential gatherings of people will be off for most of the rest of the year. The peak will hit in a few weeks I reckon and things may settle down after that. Movements will be gradually less restrictive of course, but I cant see big non essential events going ahead. 

I would rather cancel them this year, and still be here for next...…….

Current bikes......1958 D5, a 77 Suzuki GT250 and a B175 almost ready for the road and a 76 Honda C90 in the workshop. A 1980 Honda CB400N now on the road and my everyday ride is a 2011 Harley Davidson Sportster. All bikes (except the D5) are now for sale...

Indeed.

That was old news, is now definite that the NEC will be turned into a new hospital. And one other venue, didn't get the name properly sorry.

NB: the urgency is because the UK has only half the number of intensive care beds that Italy has, or had.

The situation with the Virus is fast-moving: restrictions and reactions are changing quickly. My thanks to Wildun who pointed out, earlier this evening, that the Kelsall Steam & Vintage Show - host event for the Club's Annual Rally this year - has now been cancelled.   No more information yet.
