Tony and Ian went with Take a Chance RC to a rally in Leeds. Here are the pictures and a video of Dave having a good sing song.
We met up at The Rising Sun for a cup of coffee at 10.30. Wycombe MAG turned
up in the form of Robin. So about 10 of us set off to meet at Chievley services for
a bit before 12. Rob, Tony and I had our first go at being marshals which was fun although
a bit scarey when a car who got bored of waiting decided to drive at me!

Although there was a party at the Plough in Arncott afterwards, a few of us went to the Rising Sun for a drink. Tony and Sarah organised a raffle the profits of which will go towards funding WADMAG events.

Tony organised this trip to the Farmyard party but he couldn't make it himself in the end due to a problem with his bike. Fran couldn't make it either so it was just Ian and I who headed up there but we met up with Rich who had set off a day earlier. He'd met up with Fergus and his chums.
The Farymyard party is a very large to in on the Yorkshire moors near Helmsley. About 8000 people go. There is an outside stage, a comedy tent (by BSH), a blues tent and a dance tent. The whole thing is situatuated in a valley with trees around it and camp fires are permitted so you can see little columns of smoke in the evening until it gets too dark.
Not many pictures, in fact, just the one! This is an unusual picture of Rich as he has finally blown up his Moto Guzi V50 after eleven years and had to borrow something else.
Really busy one day show -
