Club Captain’s Report
At our last monthly meeting I asked who of you would like to put their name forward for re-election at our AGM on 27th May, as both Lyall and Tony indicated that they would be standing down after serving our branch for many years. On behalf of all members I would like to say “THANK YOU “ for what has been a tremendous contribution to this branch. Chris Bird has indicated that he is willing to take on the secretary’s role from Tony which give a smooth transaction in that position. Thanks Chris. All other committee members have said that they are willing to continue. I don’t wish to influence your vote, but your committee is working very well together and we only need to replace two or who you wish. Remember it is always good to have an election, so don’t be afraid to put your name forward for any position. Your branch is in good heart both financially and personally wise, membership is growing steadily. Friendship and harmony is the essence of this branch, and I for one always look forward to Wednesday mornings for a few laughs and a bit of a banter. Please could we have your presence so you can have your say on the Sunday the 27th May 1.30pm at the clubrooms. Let’s have a bit of fun.
Aprils been an interesting month for all sorts of reasons. The 8th saw another boat trip to Te Puru, with 60 members and friends making a return trip. The weather played its part and dolphins turned up on Q. Our host Bill, was his normal outgoing, cheerful self. We finally headed for home with memories we probably will not forget. It is good to have a mix of members and friends, as not only does it make us realise what a cool club we have, but it also boosts our clubs image around Marlborough. The Noggin and Natter came next with another good evening had by all. The trip to Whites Bay was a washout, but no reason we can't try again. Now summer is over that's the end of the steam train trips (22 all up) and the boat trips are a memory, so I suppose we should concentrate on old cars for a while. The Events trial has been and Mothers Day out is coming on 13th May. Meet at Clubrooms at 11am, then the same as last year, split into groups to go to various wineries. After lunch meet back at Clubrooms for afternoon tea. May 25th is the Night Trial. Try to be ready at Clubrooms by 5pm with a good torch! At the conclusion of the trial there will be hot soup and buns at Clubrooms. . May 27th AGM at Clubrooms 1:30pm. Plate for afternoon tea please.

Snippets from “The Listening Post” Canterbury Branch Swapmeet Dates for 2018 Friday 12 th, Saturday 13th & Sunday 14th October Marlborough Branch AGM The AGM will be held on the 27th May 2018 at 1-30pm in the Redman Room. Nomination forms will be included in this and May’s Issue of View Point. All positions are up for grabs- so don’t be shy have a go, it’s a lot of fun. The Nominations box and forms are located in the Redman Room. Nominations close 25th May 2018 at 1-30pm Passing the Baton After seven years as secretary I will be stepping aside to allow another person to take up the challenge. A very interesting, busy and rewarding 7 years to a point I seldom need to look up the branch manual for information. Trophy Event held on 6th May The event was kindly hosted by Robb & Adele Galloway and attended by an enthusiastic group-some were challenged when changing a tyre. We had a guest (Berwick Taylor) with a superb 1958 Bentley who enjoyed the afternoon. The day was fine and warm with a NW breeze which challenged the throwing of rolled newspapers. Peter and Marg Holdaway came closest to guessing the number of Jelly Beans in the jar and these were presented to them at the afternoon tea and a fine spread there was too.
Event was organised by last year’s winners - Tony & Jen. Thank you Robb & Adele for hosting the event, it made a nice change from Patchett’s Green. Thought for the Month Why I Like Retirement! Q How many days in a week? A 6 Saturdays, 1 Sunday Q A Q A Q

Update from Your Social Convenor Another quiet month for the kitchen, scone mornings are still as popular as ever, remember everyone is welcome and it is nice to see the new members coming along for a natter. Our Friday natter & noggin night was again another enjoyable evening. This is a great night to socialise with other members, and although it is getting colder at night and we don't like leaving the fire at home it is always cosy at the club rooms. Friday the 25th is our next natter & noggin and it is a "Soup & Bunâ€? night. $8.00 pp. Dale

From the Blokes in the Shedâ€Ś You learn something new all the time, like I wasn't aware our shed had a smoke alarm until a couple of Wednesdays ago, when the wind changed and our burning drum sent a big puff of smoke into the shed. I wasn't the only one sent scuttling our side. No harm done and a lesson learnt. Blimey that thing is LOUD. I've picked up on the recent increase in verbiage on the subject of electric vehicles becoming the in thing to combat global pollution. I am aware they've been around for some time now, but in recent times there has been quite an increase in conversation re the subject. An interesting article by an owner of two electric cars in the Nelson Branch was quite enlightening, with sound comments made I thought. We had a good turn over last month, moving all sorts of goodies, with a number of donations being received. Our new shed continues to be filled up slowly but surely and looking good, with an attractive paint job on the exterior. Cheers The Major

Motorcyclists Ageâ€Ś Is It Relevant? Within the VCC concern is often expressed about the ever increasing age of members. Looking back at motorcycle rallies I have attended over the last forty plus years I would have to admit the average age of the entrants has increased. However, the average age of the Clubs motorcycle members is considerably lower than the members whose interest is confined to four-wheel vehicles. This is reflected in our branch Wednesday morning smoko attendances where motorcyclists who have reached retirement age make up less than 10% of those present. The downside for our motorcycle section is our members fall off (attending, not their bikes), at an earlier age. There are exceptions. In our branch the late John White and Brian Pierce were/are still riding in their late eighties and we have not given up hope of seeing Stu Johnson riding again at the next national. Some of our former motorcycle stalwarts still appear on our monthly rides in their cars, driving the backup or are active in other branch activities. Terry Watson, Tiger Lyons, Ed and Julie Matkin are some who spring to mind. There are good reasons why motorcyclists put aside their boots and helmets around the three score and ten age. Decreasing confidence and co-ordination, failing strength needed to lift a bike onto a stand or kick a reluctant starter into life. Narrowly missing having a collision or worse not missing, can convince a rider especially one of advancing years it is time to find a less risky pleasure. Should you be silly enough to tell the wife that you had a near miss can take the decision rapidly out of your own hands. If that happens you could try telling her in 1949 a motorcycle magazine drew attention to the fact the winners of the Isle of Man Senior and Junior T.T.â€™s were both forty years old and the Lightweight winner was 37. The youngest place getter in the three races was 34. Fastest laps in all three races on the notoriously dangerous circuit exceeded 80 m.p.h. That makes riding at 40 to 50 m.p.h. on good roads on a motorcycle section outing look quite safe. Try telling that to your beloved and good luck with the response.

Motorcycle Section Annual Report 2018 Section rides have continued on a monthly basis with an average attendance of 16 riders or members in cars. Several members who no longer ride continue to join us on outings in their cars which is something we welcome and appreciate. Other branch members also join us occasionally and are always welcome. A number of new members have joined our branch in the past year who are listed as motorcycle owners. We look forward to meeting them and assure them they are welcome to come out with us regardless of if their motorcycle is mobile or not. Some new restorations have appeared of a high standard along with some interesting restored or original machines purchased out of the district or in some cases overseas. Regrettably for various good reasons the number of our lady riders has fallen off which is a pity but we look forward to their return when circumstances permit. In my role within the branch and the motorcycle section I am allowed to attend branch committee meetings in a speaking but non-voting capacity. This is a privilege which is appreciated and I thank the committee for giving the motorcyclists a voice, supporting their activities and co-operating in every way they can. Organising the 2019 National Motorcycle Rally has placed a lot of work and pressure on a small number of section members but good progress is being made and the organising committee is working well together. Again, the support of the branch committee especially the branch chairman has been appreciated. To the section and branch members who have helped organise or made suggestions for the monthly runs, thanks, it is a big help. Finally, a big thank you to Paula who types up the monthly rally committee minutes and circulates to them to all concerned as well as typing up the monthly Vintage Viewpoint notes, events and report and forwarding them to the editor and finally email reminders to the section members when a ride is close to happening.
Trev Motorcycle Tip for the Month Do not stand behind Roger Gleesonâ€™s Ariel in your good clothes if he has taken more than four kicks to start it. This is more relevant since the dry-cleaning shop burnt down. 9
Motorcycle News After a fairly crappy Saturday weather wise it managed to clear for Sunday’s run. Ben arrived to see us off unable to ride due to a leg injury, Roy arrived on his recently finished Vincent. After many years of chasing and fabricating parts he has the bike on the road and has already covered hundreds of miles on it in a short time, well done. Everyone made it to Canvastown for lunch, Roger, Pam and Barry added to their mileage for the weekend having already taken part in the Ariel Rally held in Blenheim on the Friday and Saturday, Barry was back astride his accustomed Triumph after dabbling on the dark side riding Ariel’s so hopefully his reputation amongst Triumph owners hasn’t been tarnished. After a catch up over lunch it was back home with no dramas or breakdowns. Some of you will remember a past section member Terry who rode and raced a 500 Titan, well he has finally hung up his helmet, not unfortunately after winning a final race at Ruapuna but after being squashed by a rubbish truck. Yip no bull, what’s left of his Honda is off to China to be made into bake bean cans and Terry is left contemplating the irony of having never thrown a bike down the race track at speed but gets run over while stationary at a give way by a bloody rubbish truck. On the bright side the young German driver did apologise about signalling a right and then turning left from the right turn lane squishing bike and rider, fortunately apart from scrapes, bruises, torn ligaments and being reduced to hobbling, no major limbs were lost. Best wishes for full recovery!
