Club Night Notes – 10th July 2017

If you were one of the many members that came to the Club night this evening.  Thank you!  It was great seeing so many members and indeed to meet our two latest Members, Bob and Shaun – Welcome!


There were no Certificates to hand out, however I’m aware that we’ll have one or two to present next month.


Further Training


Your test is really not the end  of your IAM Journey!  Our Observers are always happy to take you out for further observed runs if you feel your skills need brushing up for any reason.  Alternatively you  may decide you want to take your Test again to go for a F1rst or even train to do your MASTERS, whatever the case there is always some help and assistance we can provide.  All you need to do is approach Geoff Salt or Kieron Shanks who will be able to help you further.


Upcoming Events


We have one event of our own on the table


Sunday 23rd July – Group Ride to RAF Cosford Museum.  Entry is £5

Meeting at 10.00am at Markeaton McDonalds.

Further details from Gordon Constable – 07970 691716.


I’m advised the costs above include a Food Fair.  If you only want to enter the museum I believe entry is free, however I would advise on checking their website for clarification if required.


Our Friends at the Nottingham Advanced Motorcyclists have their event running a little later that week.

There is a Rideout before to do the North Nottinghamshire Circuit.  Meeting at 6pm Arnold McDonalds.  If you wish to attend please email Steve Wynn at
