APM 2014 24th January 2014

Plan was to meet at the VH at 8.00pm, and although initial pints were acquired there was no seating available so the meeting transferred to the Gun.
Both ZA and KBS rode to the meeting, particularly impressive being ZA riding all the way from Rustington in spite of the pouring rain.
After a slow start, the meeting swung into action at the realisation that we needed to press on with business if we were to complete in time for a curry.
Decision taken that for the Devon C2C we could not pass up the opportunity of staying in a yurt at Yarde Orchard.
PT announced the results of the Bling award challenge, with total heights climbed ranging from 0.1 Everests to 0.7 Everests and total numbers of rides up to around 40 in total. Whilst RT had been out the most number of Saturdays, it was agreed by all that the Bling award for effort in getting out for rides should go to PT for having not only been out for the second most number of rides but each time has to travel the not inconsiderable distance from Mayfield before and afterwards. Unfortunately RT had forgotten to bring the award to hand over, so this was left to be done the following day:

JR announced that the Commodore would like to hold a commemorative sailing weekend sometime – all agreed that would be most agreeable.
Calendar completed and was updated in the usual manner by the morning.
