For those staying over, the celebrated bar at the Foxfield Railway will be  open into the evening to round off the day.

August



4th & 6th

Comrade Carl’s Classic COC Shows still left to enjoy are the CRMC Classic Festival weekend at Donnington Park Race Circuit on 4-6th August. (Come and see the mighty Ten Pin Triumph featured on page 14 in the paddock, if it’s still running.) and the Motorcycle Mechanics Show at Stafford County Showground. To find out more email Comrade Carl at comradecarl@mail.com

There’s been a little confusion recently, caused by the shambolic editorial filing system, over Carl’s email address. It is comradeacarl@mail.com, OK?

AGM

11th & 13th

2017 Cossack Owner’s Club AGM This is at Wing Hall again and is doubly important this

year because there’s likely to be a vote on whether or not to continue with future AGMs. If the meeting decides to abandon meetings, future meetings are going to be very difficult to organise. As usual this is a camping weekend in a lovely setting. We always point out that the AGM is the best possible time and place to actually find out how your club works. Want to save it? Go to Wing Hall, Wing Hill, Oakham, LE15 8RQ 01572 737090 on 11-13th August.

We suggest you prebook if you want to camp by using www.winghall.co.uk because most people do and the staff seem surprised if you just turn up unannounced.

There will be a ride out, organised by Gina, so you’d better behave, and the AGM itself will be held at 10am on Saturday 12th in the COC marquee with the ride out in the afternoon.


28th

Fenman Bike Show This takes place in the little village of Wimbotsham near Downham

Market in West Norfolk on August bank holiday Monday. There’s no particular address because it takes place in the entire village. Our man in black Fr Alan Davies is on the committee and invites anyone who wants to stay over to camp in his garden if necessary. Email the mag at paulcodling@mail.com if you want to do that and I’ll let him know. He says “All two wheeled life is there” and that sums it up nicely. If ever there was a universal bike show, this is it and what turns up is as much fun as what’s in it.

September

 9th & 10th

 National Rally of Scotland This checkpoint type rally takes place over the 9 and 10th of

September and covers checkpoints all over Scotland. The entrants can start anywhere

and there are usually five different Challenges, including two touring awards. There should be a challenge to suit all riders.

The cost of the event is £12.00 per entrant per challenge and £32.00 for a team of three. The completed touring paperwork must be with the final control Marshals three days before the weekend of the event, or can be handed in at the final control on the date of the event. This is also the final part of the Three Nations Challenge which also includes both the English and Welsh Nationals.

Those interested can make contact by sending an SAE to Colin Pate, 45 Elmwood Park, Deans, Livingston, EH54 8SP or e-mail colinbpate@yahoo.co.uk


22nd - 24th

The Second European Meeting Ural France will be held this year at St Nectair from

22th to 24th of September 2017. Ural France hope to get same success as last time in 2015. Ural France organize this big event every two years. All weekend details program are online here:http://www.ural-france.com Regards, Bruno, Association Ural France.

St Nectaire is in the Parc National Regional Des Volcans D’Auverngne just south west of Clermont Ferrands. I drove through the area a few months ago and the mountains were snow capped and spectacular. Bruno has been economical with his contact details but I’ll see what I can find out about Association Ural France, they sound like a fun bunch of people. This date is pencilled in on the editorial calendar.
