The July club night started with a apoligies from the scretary for very little being on the clubs website. This was followed by a disscussion on motorcycle road racing, due to a number of fatalities during this season when some well known riders lost their lives following their sport and dreams. After much discussion it was concluded the only way it would be stopped was perhaps insurers would no longer cover events . We all know riders will still try to race what ever happens, we would all be sorry if it ended. We tryed to think of ways to make the sport safer what ever you try people still find ways to make it faster. If any readers of this post would like to make comments on this post please do so. Several ways off doing this either in comments underneath the blog or email firstname.lastname@example.org All comments will be welcome

There was a poor turnout for the Long Mountain Run on Sunday the 15th of April, which started from The Inn-on-the-Green Wentnor. The riders went over the Long Mountain, Stiperstones calling at the Bog Visitor Center for coffee tea and home made cakes, From the Bog they went over the Stiperstones to the Long Mynd through the countryside taking in Clunton to Clun then returning to The Inn-on-the-Green for a carvery. Sadly only the Morgans and the organisers stopped for the carvery. My thanks to Dave Anscombe for advertising our event in the Morgan club magazine and the drivers and passengers eight in total in 3 three wheelers and one four wheeler. Thanks also to the Volunteers who run the Bog Visitor Center for their hospitality.thaks also go to Adrian and his staff at The Inn-on-the-Green for the signing on room the free tea and coffee thanks also go to the riders who turned up on a cold day. My final thanks goes to my long suffering wife who does all the paper work and to my daughter Nikki for her in put
