Alford Convention

Hmmm. Well, I haven't had much time this week to go through my Alford pics, although I do know there is one of a naked man. Cubbie did about 3 or 4 laps of the track in the classic parade, my lap times weren't quite up to that of Timmy the Twister on his borrowed R6, but I put it down to having to borrow Johnny's helmet, which was a fraction on the large size and kept falling over my eyes. They had supermoto things, a trials display, the moped marathon and some special guests riding special bikes, but I missed them all cos I didn't hear a thing on the tannoy. I did watch a bit of the fashion show, but it was affa dark in there. We attracted a few new members to the Grampian Classic club, lots of Haggis entry forms were taken as were the forms for the UCAN charity motorcycle ride (see and good old Mrs BC manned (womanned?) the stall for most of the day, making tea and coffee for members, dishing out paperwork, selling tee shirts and generally keeping busy. The sun shone and all I did was wander around taking photographs for my write up for Old Bike Mart. Might do something for the other Mortons mags too.

I shall be up at 04:00hrs tomorrow for to catch me a train to Burton Upon Trent for the VMCC meeting, now where did I put all those books I bought for the journey. But between now and then we've got to change the dressings on Crumble's abscesses, catch and worm some sheep, I've got to go to work, and I'm sure there are a million and one other things to be done, it's just a case of remembering them all!

Enjoy the lack of pictures, you'll have to visualise Cubbie flying round the track, 'cos no one got any pics anyway :-(

Another good show, with a nice selection of bikes. Most interesting bike for me was the Wooler, fantastic machine for its age.

Big thank you to Mrs BC keeping the kettle on the boil all day.

'd like to thank all those who turned up to help, and ended up carting very heavy pallets around 'cause someone forgot to give us a floor. Everyone who did stuff to make the day go smoothly, and managed to stay cheerful despite the odd blip in the organisation! Thanks to everyone.
You were all great.
