Next year, in April, we’ll have been in existence for 25 years! The Blairgowrie and District motorcycle club started in Coupar Angus and has moved several times for meeting places as required.
We are presently found in Number 31 in the Wellmeadow Blairgowrie where we are enjoying the hospitality of the Bannermans who run a very welcoming bar and restaurant. The club has had many members throughout the years and enjoyed lots of adventures, laughs and great nights of food, music and quiz nights. We are very proud how along with our friends and supporters have been able to raise funds for many local charities including heart foundation, adult resource centre, Alyth pipe band to name but a few and also with our yearly ride out for the Dundee Maggies centre many thousands of £ have been raised to support this worthy centre who, with the help of donation and volunteers time make the world a bit more happier and comforting for those suffering from cancer.
The club Committee would like to hold a dance within the area to bring everyone together for a celebration of good times past and to the future. We would ask you all to offer a suggestion on music you would like to hear and a band that you enjoy. If you think you can support a night sometime in April/ May time we can make all the arrangements to bring it together and keep cost down to cover the overheads. Everyone is welcomed so please drop your name to us via the “contact us” button above and we will get organising. Any other clubs in the area, bike or otherwise are welcome to join us and offer up suggestions. Look forward to seeing what comes.
Cheers from the BADMCC committee.
Yes tomorrow night Tuesday 21st is my quiz to entertain you! It’ll be time limited to 20min from when I hand out the question sheets, with 40 questions – so you won’t still be there at closing time, and you just have to fill in the answers or choose A,B or C.No smart*rs*s with smartphones allowed! First and second prizes and of course a booby prize. Be there by 8.45 for a 9.00 start please. Pens provided.
And our Christmas meal booking is now full up, so sorry if you haven’t put your hand up by now – you’ve missed out! I have 23 names and that’s all the Old Cross can take as they have other bookings.
Yes – next club night will be a quiz to test what’s left of your brains! Tuesday 21st Nov at No31, 8.45 start. Some bike stuff but also Scotland generally and local teasers too. All welcome and we’ll have prizes too .
It’s our last chippy run tomorrow (Tues 26th) folks, and the darktime cometh soon!
So I suggest we meet at 31 earlier, at 6.30 (YES 6.30) as the forecast is cloudy but dry. We can have a wee run locally and be back at 31 by dark at 7.30, then go to the new(ish) Blair Chippy across the Wellmeadow for chips. There’s plenty room to sit down inside, and then we can go back to 31 later.
Anyone fancying the chips but not the run can meet us at the Chippy at 7.30ish.
I suggest a run to Meigle, up the Newtyle bends to Auchterhouse then over to Tealing. Then the dual carriageway for a mile to the Kirrie turn off, up Lumley Den and over to Glamis. Depending on how dark it is , then over to Kirrie and home or just main rd Glamis/Meigle/ Alyth/home.
Hope you can make it!
On the Roon the Tap plan for the coming weekend, no plan yet. It’ll be a last-minute decision by those interested on Thursday when we see the weather forecast, and may end up just a Sunday run. So let me know soon if you’re interested.
We went to Maggie’s Centre Dundee last Tuesday to present the cheque for the money raised on our Maggie’s Run back in May.
If it’s fine our next Sunday Run is this Sunday 6th Aug. Meet Wellmeadow at 10am
Charlie’s arranged to present the cheque for the money raised at the Maggies Run to them at the Maggies Centre in Dundee next Tuesday, 25th July. We’ve decided to combine the Chippy Run and the presentation, as it’s been difficult to sort dates etc so this way you get to do both on the same night! We’ll have a giant cheque (nearly £2000) to hand over as before and the banner up on Maggies for the photos.
So the plan is to leave the Wellmeadow for a wee run at 6.30pm sharp (Not the usual 7) and meet at the Maggies Centre in Dundee at 8pm to present the cheque. Inbetween we can stop for chips somewhere closeby.like maybe Newport, Tayport or Invergowrie /Dundee .Anyone who can’t make 6.30 could perhaps make it for 8 at Maggies, or meet at the chipper (I’ll confirm where asap beforehand – any suggestions as to a good chipper ?) Think of it as a social night rather than a blast and it’ll be fine.
Please try and come along if you can as a good crowd at Maggies will show we all support them. It won’t take long and then we’ll head back to 31 any way you fancy.
But Applecross awaits….
Just a reminder if you fancy a run tomorrow, July 2nd, meet 10am in the Wellmeadow. Weather’s looking OK for eastern Scotland so that direction might be safest option but up to those who turn up to decide. Have fun.
