IF YOU HAVE QUERIES OR NEWS OF EVENTS, SHOWS ETC. THAT WILL INTEREST THE CLUB PLEASE CONTACT OUR EVENTS COORDINATOR DEREK BEDDOWS.
On the centenary of his death in 1918 we shall celebrate John Marston's legacy to motorcycling - there will be a new two-day event in April and at the Annual Rally there will be a unique display of Sunbeam motorcycles which achieved sporting successes. There will also be five weekend events in Scotland, Wales, Wiltshire and Northumberland, and there will be club stands at the major vintage motorcycle shows and events.
The John Marston Memorial Run to Rhos-on-Sea on Saturday 14th and Sunday 15th April will start and finish at the British Ironwork Centre at Oswestry (https://www.britishironworkcentre.co.uk) where riders can leave vans and trailers. There will be scenic routes on quiet roads to and from Rhos on Sea, about 65 miles each way.
John Marston died at Rhos in March 1918 and is buried there; thus it is a fitting place for the Club to celebrate his legacy. There will be a Memorial Dinner in his honour on Saturday 14th April at the Colwyn Bay Cricket Club, Penrhyn Avenue, Rhos on Sea. Full details of the dinner and our speaker will be circulated shortly.
In addition to motorcyclists riding in the Run, the Club is keen to promote a social gathering for members, and we welcome non-riders and their guests to attend the Memorial Dinner.
Critical elements of this Event are the Overnight B&B and the Memorial Dinner! We have to commit to Hotel Room bookings and Dinner numbers by the first week in March.
THERE IS NO NEED TO SEND MONEY AT THIS TIME!! FOR NOW, PETER AND TREVOR JUST NEED TO KNOW YOUR COMMITTED DECISION.
I look forward to hearing from you by the 3rd March.
Thanks in anticipation of your co-operation

The Run starts from Lochgilphead, Argyll and we do a short tour of the west side and east side of the Mull of Kintyre. The run is on Saturday 19 May and there will be a short run on the 20th finishing lunchtime at Lochgilphead, allowing plenty of time for homeward journeys.
11.00 Start Route card or guided ride with a stop for refreshments at 'The Crown' in Aldbourne. The run follows Les Newman's practice route for the 1934 Manx Grand Prix in which he did so well. The route winds round the Wiltshire downs on a variety of A and B roads and has a couple of decent climbs, great scenery and wonderful views.
There will also be a 60 mile social run into the Cotswolds starting at 12 noon on Saturday June 2nd from Prebendal farm.This will take in some of the idyllic Cotswold landscape and villages. Route cards available or follow me/drop off. There will be a couple of pub stops for refreshments. Bibury was a particular favourite last year.
On Saturday evening there will be a meal at either one of the local pubs or at the infamous

The June and September meetings usually have a "ride out" included.
The Royal Oak is a very motorcycle-friendly pub – there’s even some Sunbeam pictures on the walls - and on the 24th June they are hosting a Motorcycle Day. The beer is very good and the staff were very keen to have us there when we met at the Sunbeam Ale re-launch event at the brewery.
We meet on the third Thursday of alternate months. The meeting is very informal, and you can arrive any time between 7p.m and 9p.m. Everyone within reach of Wolverhampton, and beyond, is very welcome.
Peter Giles has now moved to Wales and has set up a new Welsh Group, so if you are in that neck of the woods why not pop along. The event is held at The Green Inn, Llangedwyn SY10 9JW. Starting at 12 noon.
