This is the Journal of Tsunami Riders M.C.C.
Well here we are approaching our 15th year as a club and as a few of you have noticed we have lost a few members (for one reason or another) and gained a few! We're sad to see those members go who have left but are delighted to welcome John & Dawn as new Associate members!
Moving to The Ship Inn was the best thing we have done! The Landlady, staff and locals all make us feel welcome and the food is excellent, as Stan (or T-bone as we call him now) will tell you. We even held a one day event for Pete's birthday and were able to offer people the option to camp, something we have never been able to do before!
So check back on the diary page to see what's happening and we look forward to seeing you at Easter at our Rally or out and about!TW - Secretary (01/01/2012)
We've moved to the The Ship Inn! After receiving such a warm welcome from the Landlady, staff & locals and enjoying ourselves so much at The Ship Inn at our 3rd Wave Custom Bike show we have decided to make the Ship our new home. The dicission had nothing to do with the excellent food that they serve.
The numbers were down at this years 3rd Wave Custom show, this may have been due to us having to move the venue three times and the weather. But from the feedback we recieved a good time was had by all that came and we raised a respectable amount for Kent Air Ambulance. So thanks to you brave souls that made it.TW - Secretary (10/07/2011)
First the biggest news item is that we've moved pubs! The Black Horse has been having a few problems and has had so many Landlords that we've lost count. So we've upped sticks (Sticks didn't seem to mind) and moved to the Battle of Britain. We looked around at several other options but this was the most central for all of us and it's nice'n'big!
Stan has been back into hospital and has had the metalwork removed from his leg as it was causing infections. We're hoping to see him back out and about soon!
Thanks to everyone who came to our Christmas party. It was a bit quieter than usual, but everyone seemed to enjoy themselves.
This years rally will be a bit different to last years as the Mutants have decided not to run it with us. We'd like to thank them for the past 10 years and hope to see some (if not all) of them at this years rally.
Only 4 months since the last update! Oh well, I've been busy (or lazy).
Steve "Smiffy", Steve "the Bass" and Gail "Vamps" have been made full members and we have 6 (yes 6!) new Associate members; Neil, Maria, Kevin, Lou, Dean "Thumper" and Nick. The Black Horse gets quite busy on Tuesday nights these days!
Plans for the Christmas Party are all but complete and tickets are now available (hint, hint).
The club has been out and about at rallies, rideouts and a few one day events like the Kent Pow Wow Poker run, Ride Out for Rainbow, London the long way round and M25 - the Other Way Round to name a few.TW - Secretary (03/10/2010)
Sticks was made a full member following a fairly long Associate membership.
Following our AGM the following Membership changes have taken place; Vicky has been made Social Secretary, J has been made Treasurer, Martin has been made Road Captain and we have 2 new Associate members, both called Steve!
Becky who has been our Social Secretary for 10 years is now going to chill out and enjoy the delights that Vicky will arrange for us all!
Some sad news, the Mutants have decided not to run the Joint Rally with us next year. We thank them for the past 10 years and will miss them. BUT the show must go on and stalls and bands are already booked! So look out for details of the 11th Joint Rally; same time, same place, but some faces missing.
The 2nd Wave Custom Bike Show was be held on 12th June. Wow what a great day we had. See the Diary for more info.TW - Secretary (13/06/2010)
Ok I've been nagged in to action!
Where do I begin?
We've had a couple of member leave for one reason or another (Barry, Brian, Terry and Beardy Dave).
We held our first bike show (1st Wave Custom Bike Show) in June. This was in aid of Kent Air Ambulance and had a real good day (as hopefully did those that came), AND we raised 450 pounds in the process!! We're planning on repeating it this year, so come along and join in the fun!
Not quite such a long wait for news this time!
Only one committee change since the last update; Gail has stepped down as Secretary and also left the club as she has other commitments outside the club. We wish her well and hope that she doesn't become a stranger! So your friendly web master has stepped into her shoes (not literally!!).
Jay, Barry and Beardy Dave have been made full members and Martin has been made a new Associate member. Stan is still off the road and is going into hospital at the end of the month for an operation on his leg and hopes to be well enough to attend the Joint rally.
