TWINSHOCK NEWSLETTER SEPTEMBER 2014 (again)

 

WELL FOLKS HERE IS YOUR SEPTEMBER NEWS FROM THE YEAR 2014. OUR MEETING LAST SUNDAY WAS A CRACKER I AM SURE YOU WILL ALL AGREE,GREAT WEATHER.GREAT CROWD AND SUPERB RIDERS ALL MADE FOR A GREAT DAY TO LOOK FORWARD TO BUT HEY WAIT A MINUTE,THE TRACK BUILDERS ON THE SATURDAY DISOBEYED MY ORDERS AND THOUGHT THEY KNEW BEST ON HOW TO LAYOUT A TRACK .WRONG. DISASTER STRUCK ON THE FIRST LAP OF PRACTICE LEADING TO A NEAR DISASTER ON THE NEARBY ROAD.I WONT GO INTO DETAIL NOW BUT IF I HAVE TO IN FUTURE I WILL HAVE NO HESITATION IN LETTING YOU ALL KNOW THE FACTS AND MORE.ANYWAY AFTER A MAJOR TRACK RE-ROUTEING BY THE CLUB OFFICIALS WE MANAGED TO GET THE MEETING UNDERWAY. THE MEETING RAN EVER SO GOOD WITH ALL THE OFFICIALS DOING THEIR DUTY AS AND WHEN REQUIRED ,NO PROBLEMS IN THAT DEPARTMENT NOW .

THE ONLY DOWNSIDE TO THE MEETING WAS BIG DONNIE BRUCE ,WHO WAS INVOLVED IN AN ACCIDENT AND WAS CARTED OFF TO LARBET HOSPITAL WITH A LEG INJURY,IT TURNED OUT THAT HE HAD BROKEN HIS TIBIA AND     FIBULA AND HAS UNDERGONE AN OPERATION TO HAVE THEM PINNED. I WILL VISIT HIM SOON AND PASS ON THE CLUBS REGARDS AND WE HOPE HE HAS A FULL RECOVERY AND GETS BACK ON THE BIKE IN THE FUTURE. ON THE SUBJECT OF INJURIES,I BELIEVE THAT BIG GRAEME NAISMITH COULD BE DUE OUT OF HOSPITAL ANY DAY NOW AND IS ON THE ROAD TO A FULL RECOVERY ,WE WISH YOU ALL THE BEST TOO BIG MAN.THIS IS THE WORST PART OF THIS JOB , WRITING ABOUT INJURIES,I CAN HANDLE ALL THE SLAGGING AND BACK STABBING AND SNIDE REMARKS BUT THE ONE THING I HATE IS SEEING OR REPORTING ON ANYONE GETTING HURT,IT JUST SEEMS TO GET DEPRESSING AFTER A WHILE. ANOTHER SERIOUS INJURY WAS ALBERT BRITTON DOWN AT FARLEIGH A COUPLE OF WEEKS AGO ,I HEAR HE IS HOME BUT IS QUITE BAD.WE WISH HIM ALL THE BEST ,ALSO SUPERSTAR RAYMOND THOMSON WAS ALSO INJURED AT THAT RIP OFF EVENT ,WE HOPE YOU RAY AND THE OTHERS ALL GET WELL SOON.THE FULL RACE REPORT WILL BE IN THE TMX NEXT WEEK AND ALSO ON THE NEW RACE REPORT PAGE ON THE CLUB WEBSITE -WWW.SCOTTISHTWINSHOCK.COM .I WILL BE DOING THE CLUB RACE REPORTS FOR THE TIME BEING UNTIL WE GET A REPLACEMENT .THE CLUB IS WILLING TO PAY SOMEONE TO DO THIS SO IF ANY OF YOU THINK YOU CAN DO A HALF DECENT JOB ,PLEASE GET IN TOUCH .THE PAY WILL BE COMPARABLE WITH OTHER JOBS AND WILL BE £600 PER YEAR. OUR RESIDENT PHOTOGRAPHER ,SANDY ECCLES HAS HAD A LOAD OF OTHER THINGS TO DO IN HIS LIFE THIS YEAR AND HAS ONLY MANAGED 2 EVENTS,HE TELLS ME HE CAN NO LONGER COMMIT TO OUR MEETINGS AND WILL BE STANDING DOWN ,SANDY DONE A GREAT JOB IN THE PAST BUT NOW WITH ALL THE GADGETRY AVAILABLE TO THE PUBLIC FOR TAKING PHOTOS HE FINDS IT IS NO LONGER WORTHWHILE AS LOADS OF PEOPLE TAKE PICTURES AND DVD S AT OUR EVENTS NOW. I HAVE SECURED THE SERVICES OF CAROLINE NAPIER TO SUPPLY PHOTOS FOR THE TMX TO SUPPORT OUR CLUB REPORTS IN FUTURE. THE FUTURE OF THE PADDOCK GOSSIP WITH BIG RIK WILL CONTINUE UNDER THE WATCHFUL EYE OF HOPPY AND DOD SMART WHO HAVE TAKEN OVER THE FILMING DUTIES FOR THIS AND OTHER FILMING ACTIVITIES.THE CLUB WILL BE INVESTING IN STATE OF THE ART FILMING EQUIPEMENT SOON SO WE CAN FURTHER THE SERVICE TO OUR MEMBERS OF THE SUPPLY OF DECENT DVDS OF EVERY EVENT.

I HAD A COMPLAINT AGAIN ABOUT LITTER AT ALLOA,THE CULPRIT WAS 811 CRAIG MEECHAN,HE WAS WATCHED BY A CLUB OFFICIAL LEAVING THE SITE AND HIS RUBBISH WAS LEFT BEHIND.DO NOT PUT AN ENTRY IN FOR GLENFARG AS YOU ARE BARRED FOR THAT MEETING,THE COMMITTEE WILL DECIDE IF YOU CAN RACE WITH US AGAIN. NO LONGER WILL WE STAND FOR THIS ,I SAID IT BEFORE AND NOW IS THE TIME FOR ACTION. ANOTHER ISSUE IS DRUG TAKING AT OUR EVENTS,I KNOW THE OTHER CLASSIC CLUB ALLOW IT BUT WE DO NOT ,ANYONE SEEN WITH DRUGS WILL BE ASKED TO LEAVE ,SPECTATOR,RIDER,PARENT,CHILD, IF YOU WANT TO TAKE DRUGS OR ASSOCIATE WITH A DRUGGY ,DO IT AWAY FROM US.

TEAM POINTS AS OF NOW WITH 1 ROUND TO GO AND IT LOOKS LIKE ARGYLL HAVE IT SEWN UP THIS TIME WITH A TOP SCORE OF 181 AT GLENOCHIL JUST 2 POINTS AHEAD OF A REJUVENATED BALLISTIC 5 ON 179 AND DIAL-A-TOW IN 3RD ON 149 AFTER A DEDUCTION OF 11 FROM THE PREVIOUS MEETING.

   I WILL HAVE A TALK WITH THE COMMITTEE AND SPONSORS OF THE TEAM CHALLENGE TO ASSESS IF IT IS WOTHWHILE CONTINUING WITH IT IN THE PRESENT FORMAT. I WILL KEEP YOU POSTED AS AND WHEN ANY CHANGES WILL BE MADE.

I HAVE HAD STEWART FLOCKHART IN TOUCH WITH ME REGARDING OUR DATES NEXT YEAR.MOST OF YOU SHOULD KNOW WHO HE IS ,HE WAS A TOP SCOTTISH RIDER DOING THE GP CIRCUIT A FEW YEARS BACK AND IS NOW TRYING TO RESURECT THE MODERN SCOTTISH CHAMPIONSHIP AND OTHER EVENTS AROUND TRHE COUNTRY.I WISH YOU ALL THE BEST STEWART AND IN NO WAY WILL THIS CLUB TRY TO GET IN YOUR WAY,INDEED WE WILL HELP IF AT ALL POSSIBLE, ANYWAY HERE IS A PROVISIONAL LIST OF OUR DATES AND VENUES FOR NEXT YEAR. I STRESS PROVISIONAL BUT I AM VERY RARELY WRONG IN ANYTHING I SAY OR DO .

THESE DATES AND VENUES WILL BE DISCUSSED AND RATIFIED AT THE AGM. AT THE STABLES LOUNGE CROOK OF DEVON ON THE 23RD OF NOVEMBER 2014. AS A CLUB WE PROBABLY RUN MORE EVENTS THAN MOST OTHER CLUBS AND AS FOR VARIETY OF TRACKS THERE IS NO OTHER CLUB IN THE UK THAT RUNS 10 EVENTS ON 10 DIFFERENT TRACKS,OK I HEAR YOU SAY WE MAY BE AT TINTO,RIGSIDE TWICE NEXT YEAR,WELL YES WE MAY BUT THEN AGAIN WE MAY NOT, IF WE CAN SECURE ANOTHER GOOD VENUE .THERE IS A TRACK IN AYRSHIRE THAT YOUR NEW TRACK MANAGER HAS BEEN LOOKING AT SO THAT MAY BE THE LUCKY ONE ,WHO KNOWS.

BIG RIK ARRIVED AT GLENOCHIL LAST SUNDAY WITH 100 DANCE TICKETS AND GUESS WHAT,HE SOLD THE LOT BEFORE THE INTERVAL ,.WOW RIK YOU ARE SOME GUY,YOU MUST BE A DAB HAND ON THE MIKE AT THE DANCE IF PEOLE ARE QUEUEING UP TO SEE YOU. ON THE SUJECT OF MEGA SALES ,I SOLD OUT OF CLUB ZIPPERS AND HOODIES AT GLENOCHIL .WE WILL NOT BE RESTOCKING TILL NEXT YEAR SO IF YOU WANT ONE YOU BETTER BE QUICK WHEN WE RESTOCK.

   IT HAS CAME TO MY ATTENTION THAT A SENIOR CLUB OFFICIAL HAS NOT JOINED THE CLUB THIS YEAR AND HAS BEEN ENJOYING FINANCIAL BENEFITS THIS YEAR. TO STOP THIS HAPPENING IN FUTURE. AT THE AGM . ALL PEOPLE THAT WANT TO BE A MEMBER IN 2015 MUST JOIN BEFORE THE MEETING BEGINS ,I WILL BE TAKING MEMBERSHIPS UP TILL THE START OF THE MEETING AT 2.30 PM ON SUNDAY THE 23RD OF NOVEMBER

THAT IS ABOUT IT THIS MONTH,NO MAJOR ISSUES TO REPORT
