We had the best turnout so far for our club afternoons 21 members and guests, the speaker was Bruce Lawson and colleague from the Cloverlands Toy Museum Montgomery. Who gave a very interesting and amusing slide show and talk on the life of Charles Rolls of Rolls-Royce fame. Bruce has written a book Charles Rolls of Rolls-Royce, available direct from Bruce and other book sellers.
There were a couple of comments should we perhaps hold all our meetings in the afternoons, while most of our members are retiree’s we do have 3 or 4 members of working age. The pro’s for this are we don’t clash with the Pony Club meetings, more parking, so far we have been able to get speakers and it appears more members come on their motorcycles in the daylight. The cons are we are excluding our members who are still working there is the possibility some speakers may not be able to come in the afternoons. Any comments or idea’s for future meetings would be welcome. The landlord was on a day off, so our thanks to the young lady working the bar and the chef in the kitchen for staying on to provide us with food after the meeting.
The next club night will be a slide show and talk by Mike Watkins on The Empress of Ireland “what really happened”, at The Inn-on-the-Green at 2pm all are welcome you don’t have to be a member to come.
