Someone left a pair of Shark gloves behind at Wivenhoe.

They were found on the road near the top of the circuit so I asume that they fell off a bike when doing laps Saturday.

Worlds Greatest Shave

Posted by Peter (Chopper) on April 7, 2019 at 4:45 AM Comments comments (3)
At the Presidents meeting today Gatton Branch raised an idea to support the Worlds Greatest Shave day and hold an event in March next year at the Gatton showground, now I would like to support this event and propose as a Branch representative I will grow my hair, from now (however bad it looks) and have it shaved on that day. We should have a Branch ride out to Gatton and show our support I will however need some donations/sponsorship. If you think that this is a 'goer' please let me know.
