JUNE 2015 NEWSLETTER
 
HERE IS YOUR NEWS FOR THE MONTH OF JUNE IN THIS LOVELY YEAR OF 2015. A FEW MEMBERS  HAD A RARE OUTING DOWN SOUTH LAST WEEKEND ,WELL MORE THAN 20 OF US ACTUALY ,WE WERE SUPPORTING THE BLENCARN  TWINSHOCK MEETING RUN BY THE CUMBRIA CLUB AS WE NORMALY RACE AT THEIR KENDAL MEETING IN AUGUST BUT AS THEY HAD MOVED THEIR DATE THIS YEAR AND IT NOW CLASHES WITH OUR ROUND 7 AT TINTO WE MADE THE PILGRIMAGE TO BLENCARN INSTEAD.IT WAS A GOOD MEETING ,GOOD WEATHER AND SOME OF THE SCOTCH LADS DONE US PROUD.

JAMES MCLEAN WON THE PRE 78 CLASS,MIKE VANDERMERWE CAME SECOND OVERALL IN THE CLUBMAN CLASS WHICH I THINK HE WOULD HAVE WON IF HE HAD FINISHED RACE 2 WHERE HE DEMOLISHED ABOUT 100 YARDS OF TRACK AND DERAILED HIS CHAIN IN THE PROCESS RESULTING IN A DNF. SMITCH RODE LIKE A PRO WHEN THE WINNINGS ARE DOUGH TO CLAIM THIRD IN THE HANDICAP GRAND NATIONAL WHICH WAS WON BY ENGLISHMAN GARY PARKER WHO I MUST SAY IS A TREAT TO WATCH THESE DAYS.IT WOULD HAVE BEEN GOOD TO SEE OOR GAV THERE ON A TWINSHOCK BIKE AS I THINK HE COULD GIVE GARY A RUN FOR HIS MONEY.PAUL CHIAPPA GRABBED AN OLD ,(1957 TO BE EXACT) GRUMPH ,TRIUMPH 500 ENGINE IN A GREEVES FRAME, FROM JOE MCLEAN AND LOOKED CERTAIN FOR A VERY GOOD SECOND OVERALL UNTIL A CHAIN DERAILMENT DNF,D HIM IN RACE 3 WHILE LYING SECOND ,WE MIGHT GIVE IT BETTER PREPARATION FOR YOU NEXT YEAR PAUL.

WELL ONTO OUR OWN CLUB,THE MEETING YESTERDAY AT STIRLNG  WAS ANOTHER TOP DRAWER EVENT WITH A NEW TRACK LAYOUT ,I THINK MYSELF AND ALLAN HUGHES HAVE STRUCK UP A GOOD RAPPORT WHEN IT COMES TO TRACK BUILDING WE JUST SEEM TO THINK ALIKE WHEN WE ARE LEFT ALONE TO LAY OUT THE TRACKS FIRST POWMILL AND NOW STIRLING ,WE ARE THE TEAM OF THE FUTURE,THE BEST ,OF COURSE I KEEP HIM UNDER STRICT CONTROL WHEN I AM LEARNING HIM THE ROPES BUT NO OTHER COMES CLOSE. ALLAN WILL HAVE THE SUPER RACE REPORT ON THE WEBSITE SOON ANT WILL BEN THETMX ON FRIDY , OUR MARVELOUS TIMING EXPERT GRAHAM ANDERSON HAS GOT THE POINTS FOR THE MEETING ON THE MYLAPS WEBSITE  ALREADY.SANDY WILL PUT THIS NEWS AND THE CHAMPIONSHIP POINTS ON THE WEBSITE VERY SOON AS WELL. ON THE SUBJECT OF THE TIMING SYSTEM,IT SEEMS WE  WILL ALWAYS BE DOGGED WITH SOMEONE MOANING ABOUT THE POINTS ,YES GARY FAST BOY BRITTON RECKONED HE WAS 3RD OVERALL,WRONG SON YOU GOT WELL PUMPED AS OUR £7000 WORTH EQUIPMENT SHOWED.ANOTHER GOOD THING ABOUT THE SYSTEM IS THE ABSOLUTE ACCURACY OF RIDERS TIMES  WHEN IN RACE 13 TAM GRANT AND GORDON MORRISON WERE RECORDED AS CROSSING THE LINE 4 THOUSANDTHS OF A SECOND APART , NOW THAT IS WHAT I CALL GOOD RACING. AND ON THE SUBJECT OF WEBSITES,WE HAVE A NEW WEBSITE THAT WILL RUN ALONGSIDE OUR OLD WEBSITE,THIS WAS CREATED BY IAN GERRARD AS A LOT OF OUR MEMBERS WERE NOT MANAGING TO GET LOGGED INTO THE CLUB FORUM.IAN WITH THE HELP OF HIS MATE HAVE SET UP THIS NEW WEBSITE WITH A MORE USER FRIENDLY  LAYOUT AND IT SHOULD BE EASY TO ACCESS THE FORUM ONCE IT IS UP AND RUNNING AT FULL STEAM.YOU CAN LOG ON TO WWW.SCOTTISHTWINSHOCKCLUB AND HAVE A LOOK,MAKE COMMENTS ON ANY IMPROVEMENTS OR JUST CHECK OUT THE PHOTOS AND RESULTS.THIS WEBSITE IS NOT IN COMPETITION OR CONFLICT WITH OUR OLD WEBSITE AND BOTH WILL BE RUNNING SO YOU HAVE MORE CHOICE.
 WWW.SCOTTISHTWINSHOCK.COM  IS STILL VERY MUCH ALIVE AND KICKING. OUR WEBSITE GAFFER,SANDY ECCLES HAS DECIDED TO CALL  IT A DAY AS HE HAS OTHER COMMITMENTS  AND FEELS THAT THE CLUB CAN BENEFIT FROM NEW BLOOD .I WOULD LIKE TO THANK SANDY FOR ALL HE HAS DONE OVER THE YEARS  FOR THE CLUB AND HE IS LEAVING ON A HAPPY NOTE AND WE WISH HIM ALL THE BEST FOR THE FUTURE.

ON THE SUBJECT OF PHOTOS,OUR CHAIRMAN GOT A LENGTHY TEXT FROM AN EX CLUB PHOTOGRAPHER DEMANDING THAT THE CLUB DO NOT USE HIS PHOTOS IN FUTURE. AS THE TMX HAD PUT A PHOTO IN THEIR PAPER FROM THE POWMILL EVENT ,WELL ACTUALY IT WAS THE TMX THAT PUT THE PHOTO IN THE REPORT NOT OUR REPORTER AS HE HAD SENT IN HIS OWN PHOTOS, ANYWAY THE PHOTOGRAPHER  HAD THE AUDACITY  TO CLAIM HE WOULD TAKE ACTION AGAINST THE CLUB ,WELL IS THAT RIGHT ,COME AHEAD WE OR BETTER STILL ME JOE MCLEAN AM WAITING AND I CAN ASSURE YOU I WILL TAKE YOU TO THE CLEANERS IN ANY COURT CASE YOU WISH TO RAISE.THE CLUB OWN ALL INTELLECTUAL RIGHTS TO ALL PHOTOS ,VIDEOS,SOUND RECORDINGS OR ANY OTHER RECORDINGS TAKEN AT ANY OF OUR EVENTS,PAST ,PRESENT AND FUTURE,SO PLEASE AS WE DO NOT WANT TO FALL OUT WITH OUR PRESENT PHOTOGRAPHERS .TAKE NOTE NOW,  PHOTOGRAPHERS,THE CLUB  THE SCOTTISH TWINSHOCK CLUB SCOTLAND LIMITED OWN ALL RIGHTS REGARDING PUBLISHING OR OTHERWISE OF YOUR PHOTOS.WE WILL NOT RESTRICT ANYONE TAKING PHOTOS AND EVERYTHING WILL REMAIN AS IS BUT IF THE SAID EX PHOTOGRAPHER WISHES A COURT CASE JUST BRING IT ON OR SHUT THE FUCK UP,YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE AND SO DOES MOST OF THE MEMBERS. WE REALLY THANK OUR CURRENT PHOTOGRAPHERS AND THIS STATEMENT IN NO WAY AFFECTS THEM AND WE WISH THEM TO KEEP TAKING GREAT PHOTOS AT ALL OUR EVENTS.

SEAN DOHERTY AND HIS TEAM OF HELPERS ABLY ASSISTED BY THE KINDNESS OF DONNY BRUCE WHO SUPPLIES THE DIGGERS HAVE BEEN HARD AT WORK PREPARING THE GLEN FRUIN  TRACK  AT LOCHGILPHEAD FOR ROUND 5 ON THE 5TH OF JULY .THIS MEETING WILL BE A CRACKER AS ARE ALL OUR MEETINGS. GET YOUR ENTRIES IN NOW AND SAVE THE TENNER LATE ENTRY FEE.WHAT A BARGAIN. SEAN HAS PROMISED US A FEW CHANGES IN WHAT IS A VERY GOOD NATURAL TRACK, A RIGHT OLD SCHOOL JOB.

WE HAVE HAD TO INVEST IN MORE HI VIS VESTS FOR THE MARSHALS AS THEY ARE GOING MISSING AT AN ALARMING RATE,I DONT KNOW WHY ANYONE WOULD WANT TO STEAL THESE AS YOU CAN BUY SHITY ONES FROM SCREWFIX FOR £2.99 EACH,OF COURSE OURS ARE BETTER QUALITY .OUR FLAGS ARE ALSO GOING MISSING SO I CAN ONLY ASSUME IT MAY BE SOME LOSER FROM ANOTHER CLUB THAT IS ON A DOWNWARD PATH THAT IS DOING THE NASTY LOWLIFE THEFTS .
