ARE YOU A NEW MEMBER ?

If so, you have joined one of the most active motorcycle clubs in Great Britain if not the most active.
The South West section also happens to be one of the most active sections within the club, infact each year you have over sixty local events you can choose to join that have been organised by our dedicated section members and nationally you literally have hundreds to choose from.

I remember when I went along to my first event after being a member for a few months , it was a ride out led by John Dyke to Exmoor Zoo. Firstly joining any new club can be very intimidating! Becoming a newbie in any established group is hard, cliques have been formed over many years, everyone is getting on with what they are used to doing each time they meet, they all know each other and chat away like life long friends. I am not a shy person, but was hesitant about going along, it was actually my wife who gave me the push that I required and encouraged me to go.


So I Pulled up outside The Woodleigh Hall cafe at Cheriton Bishop and was the last person there ..Great !
There was a very healthy turn-out of members and the car park seemed to be stacked with BMWs and a few Japanese bikes too covering all years ( not everyone in the club rides a BMW you can join our club whatever you ride , first and foremost we are motorcyclists ). So in I went to a packed cafe full of club members and asked who was in charge ? John came up and shook my hand and offered me a place at his table.
I was made most welcome, everyone was talking to me about my bike and bikes in general , it was clear that this was a group of very keen motorcycle mad bikers. So here I am five/six years later and now a committee member and the section webmaster.


So if you are new, don't be shy, come along to an event and introduce yourself, you will be made most welcome.
Yes it will take time to get to know people, but many life time friendships have been formed within the club and a few marriages too !
But you will only become a real member by becoming an active member and remember! You will only get out of this club what you put into it!
So maximise your motorcycling and join an event, we are waiting to meet you.

CAMPING GUIDE

Never attended a rally before ? New to camping on a bike ? If so we have compiled a rough guide to camping if you want to join one of our fantastic rallys ?

LUNCH MEETS

Good venues get booked out very quickly especially on a Sunday , this also makes it difficult for a lunch organiser to get the numbers right when making a reservation on behalf of the Club. Can we therefore ask anyone who is intending on joining a club lunch meet, to contact the organiser as a matter of courtesy to let them know they are attending, preferably at least two days in advance.

CHRIS CROCKER

It is with great sadness that we received the news today, of the passing of our great friend and long time section member Chris Crocker, who had battled prostate cancer for the past few years. Chris had been a member, committee member and for two years Chairman of the South West section. Chris had been at the forefront of organsing many events over the years and up to just two years ago, still organised our annual Concours D Elegance and Barbeque.

I first met Chris at one of his Mid Summer Rallies held each year at Tiverton RFC, he made me very welcome and was always on hand for great advice and was a larger than life character who always had a great story to tell with an infectious laugh .

Our thoughts at this very sad time are with his wife Sylvie and family.

EMAILS

By far the easiest and most effective form of communication within the section is by Email.

The best way however, to be kept informed of new events or changes to events, is to make sure the Membership Secretary has your up to date and correct email address, many of the emails on the clubs data base are incorrect or no longer valid.

You can make sure The Membership Secretary has your correct email address on the membership renewal form.

If you DO NOT wish to receive communications via E mail please contact Don Rabson southwest.social@bmwclubuk.net with the subject REMOVE and he will remove you from the mailing list.

 

As always Folks ,if you know of a member who does not have web access please keep them in the loop and pass on any changes to them.

ORGANISING AN EVENT

New events are always welcome, but please remember these must be organised through our social secretary Don Rabson. This is so we do not have a clash in events, ie: Two camping weekends or two ride outs at the same time. Don has the complete event calendar at his disposal and will be able to tell you what dates are free , he can then forward your event for publication in the journal and for the web site.
