Page title ESSEX-KENT

It was not just a packed agenda but also a packed room at the Brews and Cues on Thursday, May 7th with a near-record turnout of 26 members, 13 bikes and Donald’s hot rod shoebox ‘66 Nova in the parking lot. Before the round-table discussion, Dale introduced and made welcome new members: David Keselica, an A10 Beezer owner and enthusiast and Donald Clapper, who wants a Yamaha SR500 to go along with his modern Harley (and Nova). Many section members are in the throes of getting appraisals and arranging insurance as well as getting their machines roadworthy. More than one praised the work of local appraiser Diane Gault. Brian C. also mentioned Len Bartell’s name for custom metal work at a reasonable cost (just picked up a bike lift). The list of upcoming events is manifold and just too numerous to list them all here. Section-wise, in May, Sunday breakfast rides will be on the 17th and 31st, meeting at the Tim Horton’s off the Essex Bypass at 8:30 a.m.Our popular Wednesday Coffee Clutch Sessions have changed time and location moving to the Timmy’s at the Bypass at11:30 a.m. For June, Sunday breakfast rides will occur on the 14th and 28th again meeting at 8:30 a.m. at the Essex Bypass Timmy’s. And not to forget the Paris National Rally June 19th to 21st.  Dale brought the section up to date on national issues having attended the CVMG’s Vancouver Summit. Membership dues will be going up marginally in the future and phased in to alleviate higher organizational costs: much of which originates from the newsletter. Dale is now the new interim National Membership Secretary: good on ya Dale. The issue of insurance and club events was also discussed. New member David won the 50/50 while, respectively, Mike, Jason and Dave won a tire gauge, calendar and BMW shop T shirt. Bidding on a vintage Union Jack flag was hot and heavy with Kevin finally prevailing. Also Dave won the auction on a diagram print of a Vincent Rapide. Thanks to Bob Munden and Chris Collins for donating these auction articles. Our next meeting will be on Thursday June 4 at the Brews and Cues. Don’t be square: see you there.
