Two new members made an appearance at our February congregation – Gerry and Keith – and were welcomed by Dale and the 16 others in attendance. Not too much happening on the members’ projects as it’s been, well, just too darned cold. Kevin Robinson wanted the national membership to know that he has the proper crimping and round punch tools and rivets to replace the ground clip rivet in the Lucas headlight (especially Nortons, which were prone to break). Because he had to buy 100 of these rivets to replace just two of his, Kevin is willing, for a very nominal fee, to replace members’ headlight rivets at the Paris Rally. Section Sundaybreakfast events for February will be at 8:45 a.m. at Jerry and Jen’s restaurant and the 22nd at the Whistling Kettle. Dale made mention of upcoming events during this month namely the new Ducati models on display at Detroit Ducati in Birmingham on the 20th; the manufacturers/dealers motorcycle show in Toronto at the International Centre from the 20th to 22nd; plus a swap meet in Lansing on the 22nd. Under new business, the section was well represented at the Windsor Motorcycle Club Stag Night dinner in January; and a reprise of our Maidstone Museum display of members’ vintage bikes plus the Old Bikes in the Burg will be on September 12 and 27th respectively. A ride committee has been formed to gauge members’ interest in and provide options for a summer trip of a couple of days. Anyone who is interested in participating on such a trip can contact Dale with his/her ideas of the where, when and how and he will pass it on to the Committee. Syd drew Chris’s ticket on the 50/50 and he generously kicked it back into the section coffers. Two calendars donated by Rene and Kevin were raffled and won by Larry and Cyril. Our next meeting will arrive on Thursday March 5 at the Brews and Cues at 7 p.m. As well, our Weekly Wednesday Coffee Clutches have become very popular and meet at 1 p.m.–ish at the Tim Horton’s at Walker and North Talbot. Cheers and happy shovelling.
