Annual Awards Night
12th December 2017 at the Royal Oak, Ockbrook.
The annual awards night and Christmas get together took place at the Royal Oak, Ockbrook. The turnout was a little smaller than usual but a good night was had by all.
This year’s charity was British Heart Foundation, their representative Derek came to accept a cheque for £1000 on their behalf.
Prizes this year were presented by Mick Grant, who also gave an entertaining talk on some amusing aspects of his long career, thanks to Mick Worthy for organising this.
We launched next year’s charity appeal which will be Cancer Research, with a raffle and bucket collection. Thanks to Granville Motorcycles, Swadlincote and others who donated prizes to the raffle.
The Club was formed in 1974 to provide competition for pre 65 British bikes which were no longer competitive because of the influx of foreign bikes. 1965 was chosen as 1964 was the last year an all British competition bike was listed in a catalogue
