February: - Blackpool MAG Valentines Massacre,
Helped organise and run Blackpool MAG’s Valentines Massacre Rock night. This was a trial event to see how the new clubhouse and bar facilities would cope with a large crowd of thirsty bikers. It highlighted a few issues that we will have to address before the main rally later in the year. The night was a great success however raising over £100 for MAG.
7th March: - First Bike on the scene course, Thornton-in-Clevelys, Fylde.
I organised this course with the assistance of members of Blackpool MAG through a friend of mine who is a trained instructor, and MAG member. He has developed this course and is one of seven approved courses to be recognised by the HSE. Everyone attending the course thought it was excellent and a future one is being planned.
10th March: - Rally Meeting at Blue Anchor, Weeton
We arranged a meeting at Blue Anchor Public House looking for an alternative venue for the summer rally. The venue was not suitable.
11th March: - RideSafe BackSafe Police HQ, Hutton
Most of the
meeting was taken up planning the RideSafe Rendezvous to be held in
24th March: - Rally meeting Blackpool RUFC
We called a meeting with the committee of Blackpool RUFC to try and address some of the concerns we have with running the rally here. There will be a further meeting next month but it has now been decided to push ahead with it at this site and incorporate the reduced clubhouse size with a large tented area.
