EPM Friday 4th November

Monday, November 7th, 2016

During the ride on the previous Saturday JR and the Rev. Z Allan TV. FGCC (Club Chaplain) agreed that “weighty matters were in need of discussions” and began to do so when JR remembered that they were not quorate at an EPM. I couldn’t remember the exact (proposed) agenda but recalls something about King Canute.
Hence the call for an EPM Friday (say 8 to 8.30 onwards), at the VH with a 10pm (latest) curry at Tim’s favourite restaurant/second home: The Tajdar?
With 5 attending at the VH, as far as can be remembered much was discussed but nothing concluded making it yet another great evening with plenty of entertaining discussion.
One idea raised was that we should have an overnight ride scheduled for the end of October each year to one of the UK forests so as to be able to enjoy the wonderful Autumn colours, such as JR experienced in the Forest of Dean. The draft calendar for 2017 has been updated to include this suggestion.
Below is a picture taken at Sheffield Park as an example.

How about this for a long ride? A couple from the Netherlands and friends of RT are embarking on a ride up the length of South America, having given up their jobs and sold their house!
