SBMOC ‘Open Day’ 16th July:  A date for your diary!   Our club is holding again its successful open day event on Saturday 16th July at the Clymping Village Hall.    10am thro to 4pm.  BBQ, bar etc.   Ride in and ride out any time.  Any club and any rider on 2 wheels is welcome to come (and family also).   No entrance charge and auto jumbles also welcome at no charge.  

Subs:  It’s that time of year again to pay your membership dues to George.  £15.00.  No change in amount …notwithstanding inflation, surging costs of everything and of course Putin.   Pay by cash or cheque on club night or on-line via 60-13-18
a/c 44562349 quoting ‘SUBS’ and your ‘NAME’.  But if you do not pay before end of May, you will thereafter have to re-register as a new member. 

Brewery Trip.  We are thinking of organising a coach trip to a brewery some distance away from the club house for those members who’d like to sample the ales but are concerned about how this might be curtailed if we go by bike.  If interested then send us an email as we need to know level of interest and size of coach so we can work out costings/logistics.  

Bike meets:  If you fancy a week day evening ride out during the summer, then think of Friday night at West Park Cafe, Aldwick, Bognor, 5pm-8pm, or, Thursday night at Hayling Island Cafe 6pm-8pm, or, Thursday night at Whiteways, or, Ceasefire Cafe last Tuesday evening in the month, or, for a really fast run go to Tuesday ‘Bikers on the Quay’ at Poole, Dorset, 5.30pm-9pm.  You know it makes sense.  

Whiteways Cafe, Bury Hill.   The cafe closed for a couple of days for its kitchen to be refurbished and has re-opened.   This was to re-install all the kitchen facilities needed to again offer freshly grilled bacon baps, eggs, burgers, pasties etc etc.   They are worried though because bikers are pissed off about what they think to be parking charges.  THIS IS INCORRECT.  BIKES ARE FREE.       The Cafe staff also tell us that only a single camera is installed supposedly to catch those who come in and go out using this registration recognition software.  But of course it wouldn’t work for motorbikes cos we only have a reg number on the back end.    They ask us to pass on this info.   The only possible complication could be the supposed ‘designated’ parking area which for motorbikes is totally inadequate at only about 15 metres.
