Anniversary Ride Out Sat Aug 12 th

Hi everyone, as you may know Jim has kindly arranged an anniversary ride out on Sat 12th Aug to celebrate 20 years of the club.I am hoping to welcome as many people as I can and hope to see old and new faces.

I started the club with Steve Walsh, closely assisted by John Drake, and as a brave break away from the other Scooter clubs around Bristol in Summer 1997.As an unashamedly MOD SCOOTER club we quickly grew from the original 3 to 13, to 23 then 30 and eventually had around 70 names on our mailing list of both young newcomers, old ex-Mods, latter day Suede heads/skins and new generation 'Quadrophenia Mods ' all wanting to enjoy the classic Mod Scooter and the history it stands for.You just needed a classic Scoot and a bit of chrome....and wow how the Chrome started to come out.

We enjoyed early success with Scoots coming over from Cardiff, Gloucester, Bath and even Chippenham to join us on our Sunday night rides and of course exposure with numerous TV , Press and Radio articles, including our memorable photo shoot and feature on the "Pulling Power' program.We won various 'best Mod Scooter 'awards at Isle of Wight and became well known around the UK and even Overseas.

The true success though has come from the longevity of the club and that is truly thanks to the likes of Norman Webb, Steve Holloway, Stalwarts like Gerry and Steve, plus Steve Holloway and of course the tireless enthusiasm of Jim Burnham....the club continues. We are still what it says on the tin.... A MOD SCOOTER CLUB.

Please come along on Sat 12th and lets be proud of what we have all created. I have bravely offered to buy all riders and passengers a pint of lemonade or stronger at a to be defined pub en route so that we can all raise our glasses to The Bristol Mod Scooter Club....long may it continue !

If you know of past members or anyone who may not read this message ,please invite them along for this classic Bristol burn up. See you there ! Polish that Chrome !!

Kind Regards
