Newsletter (Round Robin) October 2018

Are the sprouts on yet?

Three items this time, so in date order here we go.

First we have another breakfast meeting, this time at Krazy Horse which is at 5 Lamdin Road, Lark Valley Business Park, Bury St Edmunds, IP32 6NU on 18th of November beginning at 10.30 am. As well as the food on offer we will be able to look at the motorcycles for which they are renowned, you may have heard of them from the Guy Martin TV series and his books. If you would like to attend can you please advise David Tydeman on 01449674498 or e-mail

Secondly we will have the important business of the AGM which will be at The Manger, Bradfield Combust, IP30 0LW on the A134 near Bury St Edmunds on Tuesday 8th of January at 8.00 pm.
The current A & S organisers consists of:

Bob Bell, quiz-master and April Showers organiser
Rob Easlea, Autumn Leaves run
Peter Hudspith, shows organiser and, together with David Tydeman the treasurers.
All of these hard-working individuals have agreed to stand for a further term.

Vince Baker has been our unofficial "media man" and has done a great job both with the Abbott and Stour site on the TR website as well as organising the T shirt/sweat shirt and hat production. Because of this I would like to make this a formal position to be carried forward. Also, this is an unashamed plug for you all to order aforementioned articles which can be available before Christmas and will make great presents for your loved ones. Contact Vince on
So, that leaves two positions to be filled. The first is Group Leader. This is to represent the Group, NOT to do everything, as with the above posts filled you will have a great deal of assistance and experience. Also the person taking over will have me to guide them (if they would wish this). The second post is one that I would like to create which would be loosely described as "Santa's Little Helper" which would assist the new GL in thinking up slightly silly things to do at Club Nights and help plan the breakfast meetings (great chance to get the TR out and sample coffee and cake whist planning venues!).
So, if you would like to put something back into A&S let me know together with a seconders details.

And finally, relating to the heading, its the "Not the Christmas Christmas Dinner". This will be on Friday the 18th of January giving you all time to loose a few seasonal pounds before putting it on again. The venue will be The Manger where we can partake of the normal menu. Dress will be informal and you can come in the aforementioned T shirts etc. (we will get some more sold Vince).
If you wish to come please let me know and I will send you the menu which will also be available at next club night November 13th.

Right out to the garage for a blast in the 6 as sun is shining.
