Annual Rally - programme of events.

Postby dave.pitt » Wed Aug 14, 2019 2:45 pm

There is a full rally programme.
On Thursday evening is Bike Nite in Pershore town centre. At this the South Midlands Motor Cycle Club members will descend on Pershore. Last year about 350 showed up mostly moderns, but there were some classics including a Brough Superior! This year the AOMCC and bikes have a priviledged position in the town between 6pm and 9pm. Come and show YOUR bike and talk to the other guys about owning classics.
On Friday we have the Morgan factory visit and a 90 mile run around Malvern Hills, Worcestershire and Herefordshire. In the evening we'll chin wag over a pint in the bar and listen to the music of 'Lost Cat' who are an interesting trio playing world music.
On Saturday there is the Cotswolds run of about 110 miles, which will take us to all the beauty spots and show you where Val Page, Ariel designer 1925-1959, spent the last 15 years of his life. In the evening dance your socks off to the rock n' roll music of The Ferrets.
On Sunday be prepared for some silly games in the fields, which will test your riding skills and sense of humour. Then wander into town with your Ariel and watch 'il Presidente' ride his 1929 Ariel down the River Avon mounted on floats, thus 90 years later recreating the 1929 channel crossing by factory managers Harry Perrey and Ted Thacker. Descendants of both of these fine gentlemen will be in attendance for this flotation, as will the m/c press and quite probably radio and TV. After the flotation, we will cross over to the Abbey Park where the weekend Plum Festival events will be in full swing. There we will hold our concours d'elegance event. We need your bike here! It will be on public display... Then it's back to the rally site for more chin wagging. On Monday the Plum Festival Classic Car Show takes place on the Abbey Park. Last year there were hundreds of cars entered, from 1910 up to 1980.
You should have booked in by now. If not, WHY NOT? There's still time, but room bookings close next Monday.
Be there, or be Square!

Dave, I would like to congratulate you for this post relating to the programme of events for the forthcoming annual rally, its easy to forget that for us old timers who have been to many annual rallies over the years that we have some idea of what to expect but for anyone new to the club they don't really know that there is a lot more to just camping and walking around viewing Ariel motorcycles. I know the annual rally has been mentioned in Cheval but its still good to see details of the itinery and what is going on in the surrounding area they might like to get involved in, that could well encourage more members to attend the rally. Roger
