NW Report April-May 2013
I attended the Board meeting at the AGC venue, minutes at
I attended the MAG NC meetings before and after the MAG AGC, minutes on www.mag-uk.org
I attended the AGC and had my co-option as Director of MAG UK ratified by the attending membership.
I attended this alliance meeting along with the Red-Rose and Manchester MAG reps. The Bulldogs are a new club in the NW with a very impressive club house.
Used the “MAG Van” to go and pick up the MAG National Raffle prize from MSP Motors, Runcorn, who are an AJP dealership.
Took the Raffle prize across to the ITV Rally and helped out on the MAG stand over the weekend. Great weekend and went well.
Manchester MAG supported this show which was very well attended, due in part to the association with the Alliance. It was so successful that the pub ran out of beer.
Took the MAG Stand and raffle prize to this rally. Very successful, sold plenty of raffle tickets and anniversary patches and signed up fourteen new/renewed members.
I couldn’t attend this rally due to family commitments but Blackpool MAG attended and sold raffle tickets for the bike, rally tickets and other MAG merchandise.
Blackpool MAG were asked to host this meeting. I took down the raffle prize and we sold £50 tickets on the night. Very well attended. It was suggested during open forum that the name of the alliance be changed from North Manchester to North West Motorcycle Alliance. It was voted in unanimously.
All groups in the region functioning well. The focus at the moment is on the Birthday Bash in a few weeks which we are working towards as a region. I have had the T-shirts produced early this year and they are selling well on-line via the NW web-site, as are the anniversary patches, all profits so far going towards the set-up costs of the rally which are quite high this year due to the increase in size of the event. I am very pleased how the Alliance is functioning in the and it is bringing most of the NW MCs and MCCS together supporting each other’s events and avoiding conflicts. There are one or two clubs that do not want to get involved but most are happy with the initiative. On a personnel note, fully healed and able to ride again.
NW Regional Rep.
