March 2015 Newsletter

Newsletter March  2015

It is with a heavy heart that I must report the sad news that one of our members Phil Wray passed away on the 2nd of February.  Bob Hutchinson and I represented the club and Eileen was the officiant. Our thoughts are with Lorna his wife. Most people will know Phil as the long term editor of VCC News & Views as well as being the current NAVCC President.

It is the start of a new season and the first event is the excellent Easter  week-end at Brough with the Kirkby Stephen Commercial Vehicles Rally. Bill has secured us a perfect location in a small park just off the main route in Brough. Please contact Bill Hutchinson (01768 34172301768 341723) for more details.

The club AGM will be held on Sunday 26th April at National Railway Museum, Shildon, details as below. If anyone has any ideas for future events or has anything to raise please contact the Secretary, Paul Reid (016973 43089) or e-mail ereid2002@yahoo.co.uk

As some of you are well aware, over the last few months I’ve been helping with the organisation of York Rally. This returns again after a break of two years. It will be held at the Knavesmire, York from Friday 19th to Sunday 21st June. Northern Counties have again been asked to run the veteran and classic cycle display. I thought that this year it might be the time to try something a little different. I was going to suggest, in addition to our normal display, a section for early and unusual mountain bikes. Enclosed with this newsletter is an entry form for the York Rally display. I’d be grateful if these could be back with me by 31st May. (If you’d like an electronic version please just e-mail). It would be good to have a veteran/classic ride out from the Knavesmire, if anyone is  interested we can maybe discuss it at the meeting after the AGM. As for York Rally itself, things are going well and the emphasis is very much more on a proper cyclists get together than it has been latterly.

A brief mention about this year’s NAVCC National Rally. It will be held at Ramsey Rural Museum, Ramsey, Cambridgeshire, 4th to 6th September. The ride on the Sunday will be run in memory of Phil who was involved in the organisation of this rally at the time of his death. For more information please contact Paul.
