It was the coldest, hailiest Saturday for years
- so what was Sunday and the AGM going to be like? Not as cold and not
so much hail, but the showers first thing in the morning were pretty
regular and heavy.

considering the weather it was a good turn-out. Daniel had ridden in
from Bow River and Mike Saunders who used to live in Denmark and now in

The AGM was then held and Ron Allen was

Grant 2nd secretary.
After we had lunch and a natter it was time to tidy up and have a dry ride home. A successful day - reports are elsewhere in the Club News.
