Clubnight – Film Night. This month's clubnight will be souped up with a film show (no, not that kind of film show, what's wrong with you...?). No - period motorcycling films provided by Richard. Maybe vintage scrambling, maybe vintage road-racing - who knows; it will be a great surprise!

Big Breakfast & run to Llanuwchllyn for lunch. This is a lovely run over the hills & Tanant Valley from our meeting place at the Big Breakfast event (Prees Heath Truck Stop) to the Eagles Inn in Llanuwchllyn at the SW end of lake Bala. It's always difficult to spot each other at the BB 'cos there are so many people there. For this reason, the specific meeting time/location is: - the north end of the service road where it joins Tilstock Lane (adjacent to and just south of Raven Pub) - 11:00 sharp leaving from this location PLEASE NOTE: AT THE TIME OF WRITING, THE DATE OF THE BIG BREAKFAST HAS NOT BEEN CONFIRMED. CHECK WITH ORGANISER OR CHESHIRE CATS WEBSITE

Meet at Big Breakfast @ Truck Stop, Prees Heath.

Clubnight & Intersection Picture Quiz.  Richard is in charge of this demon quiz, designed to test the very fabric of your motorcycle & general knowledge. It is always a great opportunity for neighbouring Sections to thrash the pants off Cheshire Cats (as you usually do...!) so why change the habit of a lifetime...? All welcome, the more the merrier, and I'm told there may even be prizes!

The By(ley)way Run  This event used to be the Goostrey Run, which has changed location to Cranage Village Hall, and maybe now Byley Village Hall. A charming run on predominantly rural roads around mid-Cheshire, so would suit all machines including low-capacity bikes & mopeds! As usual, being a Road Safety Run, this will include question stops (based on bikes and the Highway Code) plus a lunchtime stop somewhere nice!

11:00 Byley Village Hall?

Out for the Count- Jeff Meehan Trophy.  This is based loosely on Jeff's original concept of a simple Treasure Hunt styled event where all the 'clues' are simple & visually obvious. No local knowledge required, nor any need to stop and get of your bike to search for clues. These clues are OBVIOUS! There will be a lunch stop en-route to refresh mind and body!

10.30 for 11am from Winnington Park RFC, Northwich
