This was the second time that the Blood Riders has held this event at this venue and the Branch supported them with a good mix of bikes, those attending were Ian & Rose 1930 16H, Roger’s Featherbed Commando Yellow Special, Colin’s DOHC Manx, Dave’s Fastback Commando and Ian’s Dominator Deluxe.  Due to barely making a profit at this event the Blood Riders will not be returning to this venue

Following the cancellation of this show last year due to atrocious weather 2016’s Festival was blessed with excellent weather and as a result the Branch was able to attend for the first time and put on a display of members bikes, those attending and their bikes were as follows;   Colin’s Manx & Yellow Peril, Roger’s Yellow Special, Dave’s fastback Commando, Ian’s Blackburn engined Hemming, Chris & Jill’s B3T Trials Outfit and Mikes Model 19.  Mike unfortunately had a puncture on the way home and had to call out the RAC

It was also nice to be able to meet up with our old Chairman Jim Rendell (who is on the mend following his recent illness) and Ray who only brought his A35 Van along as his 99ss had had an engine seizure whilst on the NOC National Rally
