Filn showm ice cream and nibbles - 30th Sept

Topic: Film night - 30th Sept.


With the shortening of the days and the chilling of the riders (did I get that right?), we can all look forward to the start of the indoor season at the club.
With this in mind, the first indoor event is a film show on the 30th Sept. We'll be showing various videos of motorcycling and related subjects down the ages AND will mark the debut of our very own Great Northumbrian Section Monster screen.
Nibbles and ice cream will be available so why not come along?
Also, keep your eye on the events page in this website as news will soon appear on the complete set of events for the 19/20 indoor season. It's going to be fun!!!
