AGM News

There is a report in the next issue of Desmo on the AGM but I thought I would do a bit of an update here as well, thank you to all the members that turned up, without which the AGM cannot take place, we need at least 25 !!

A few changes to the CoM, Steve Benn takes over as club secretary, Ray Dudding as Public relations, Julie Reed was co-opted to events a few months ago, she is now official. Su Parrish who does a fantastic job with discounts, that post now becoming a CoM position, lastly a new position of Social Media secretary has gone to Colin Richards, he has that honour.

We are constructing a new website as the current one just does not do what we want, a shop will come first selling the clubs excellent regalia, the club will subsidise rallies this year by £10 per person, the respective Organiser will work out the way they will do it.

Look out for a questionnaire shortly, we just want some feedback as to what is wanted by our members, we are past 1500 now and need to cater for you, this is our club and it goes on because of you.


A good month

The Shepton show was a great success, well done to Mick White and all the helpers that put on a great show with some truly stunning bikes.

Desmo 230 was on the doorstep a few weeks ago and what a great read, again. I know there are a few that think the magazine should be online only but there is nothing like the look and feel of a proper magazine, it is far and away the most expensive thing the club spends money on and I think it is money well spent, it as Jilly says all down to the articles submitted. Great feature on the Spondon Ducati by Glyn Robinson and a tool hire piece from Graham, did you know we had tool hire ?

The weather is getting better and the nights noticeably a little lighter, the Paso now runs which is great news, small electrical fault found and repaired by Paul Rawlinson, many thanks to him, I just need a set of belts and I can put it back together, I have to get it going before Guy gets his roadworthy !!

See you at the AGM …….
