With Covid restrictions starting to relax, the Wirral Harley Davidson Riders visited our club night at the end of July and asked TOMCC if we would like to stage a joint bike show at our pub, the Wheatsheaf, with the two clubs splitting the costs of putting it on. We had been unable to hold our show for the last couple of years so we agreed and decided to have it on 18th September to give us a few weeks to sort out some music, raffle prizes and trophies.We were blessed with good weather on the day and an attendance of over 400 bikes. The pub car park was absolutely packed with bikes – thank goodness the trailer brigade heeded our exhortations to stay away! Even the surrounding roads were full of parked cars and bikes.
The band ‘Mule Train’ played a couple of sets with their unique mix of country, folk and George Formby covers!
Trophies were awarded as follows;
Engineering – Eddie Dodd, UJM chop
Paint – Triumph Thunderbird
Patina – Weasel, BSA single
Scooter – Tony Little, Lambretta 200
There was no admission charge for the show but the raffle money and donations raised over £400 for the Clatterbridge Cancer charity in memory of Wirral TOMCC stalwart Jackie Clough.
Thanks to everyone who turned up and made the show such a success, especially the volunteers who organised it and helped out on the day.
