TWINSHOCK NEWSLETTER OCTOBER 2014

  WELL PEOPLES THAT IS THE END OF ANOTHER RECORD BREAKING YEAR FOR THIS SUPER TWINSHOCK CLUB IN SCOTLAND. THE MEETING LAST SUNDAY WAS ANOTHER BELTER,I HAVE NOT HEARD ONE BAD WORD ABOUT ANYTHING ON THE DAY. THE BIG ISSUE IN RECENT YEARS WITH THIS CLUB HAS BEEN LITTER BUT AFTER A RIDER WAS BANNED FROM THE GLENFARG MEETING BECAUSE OF A LITTER MISDEMEANER AT GLENOCHIL WE SEEM TO HAVE GOT THE MESSAGE HOME TO YOU ALL.WE DO MEAN BUSINESS WHEN WE GET ANGRY AND IT SHOWED AT GLENFARG AS  THERE WAS NO LITTER TO BE SEEN AT THE END OF THE MEETING.THIS IS GREAT TO SEE AND WE MUST ALL ACT RESPONSIBLY IN FUTURE WITH OUR RUBBISH, THANKS FOR THAT.

WE ARE STILL NOT WORKING AS A TEAM AT THESE STUBBLE EVENTS WHEN IT COMES TO TRACK DISMANTLING,WE MAY LOSE THESE EVENTS IF WE DO NOT GET A BETTER HAND AT THE END OF THESE MEETINGS,YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED. I AM REALLY BOKING JUST NOW AS EVERYTHING IS GOING SO WELL IN THE CLUB,WE HAVE GOT RID OF SOME DEAD WOOD AND THINGS ARE LOOKING GREAT FOR THE FUTURE BUT I HAVE GOT NOTHING TO MOAN ABOUT WHICH REALLY PISSES ME OFF . THE MEETING AT GLENFARG WAS  TRULY SUPERB WITH SOME TOP RIDERS ATTENDING WHICH MADE FOR SUPER RACING AND A SHOW OF COMPLETE BIKE CONTROL BY THESE TOP RIDERS,FROM PAST AND PRESENT. THE COMPLETE RACE REPORT IS ON THE WEBSITE NOW , WWW.SCOTTISHTWINSHOCK.COM  AND WILL BE IN THIS WEEKS TMX NEWS.  YOUR NEW RACE REPORTER NEXT YEAR WILL BE ALLAN HUGHES,HE IS THE STARTER AT OUR EVENTS JUST NOW AND DOES A SUPERB JOB AIDED BY HIS SON CONNER ON THE 15 SECOND BOARD, WELL THAT WILL BE MORE WORK FOR HIM AND LESS FOR ME ,THANKS ALLAN.ALL WE NEED NOW IS A CLUB SECRETARY AND A POINTS RECORDER AND WE WILL BE SORTED.

  IT WAS GOOD TO SEE DONNY BRUCE AT GLENFARG AFTER HIS NASTY ACCIDENT AT GLENOCHIL A FEW WEEKS EARLIER , HE IS ON THE ROAD TO RECOVERY AND WAITED TILL THE END OF THE MEETING TO HAND OUT THE GORGEOUS TROPHIES THAT HE SPONSORED FOR THIS MEETING ,HE IS A REAL ASSET TO THE CLUB AND A TRUE GENT TO BOOT,WE WISH YOU AND OUR OTHER INJURED MEMBERS,GRAEME NAISMITH, ALBERT BRITTON AND ANYONE ELSE THAT IS SUFFERING PAIN ALL THE BEST AND WE HOPE TO SEE YOU ALL ON THE TRACK NEXT YEAR.
