SAM Weekly Newsletter – 26th November 2021

Sheffield Advanced Motorcyclists - Christmas Party 7.30pm 6th December 2021 @ Treeton Miners Welfare Club

Editorial

First, he’s giving up, then he’s not! It’s enough to give your Editor nervous keyboard fingers – if that was ever really possible! I’m talking about Kevin Williams’ newsletter. He got so many messages from aggrieved bikers that, despite the sometimes low support, he is carrying on sending it out. As you will be getting it in your inbox, there are only his webinars advertised in your newsletter. 

There are still a number of SAM members who have not signed up for the SAM Christmas Party on the 6th December 2021. We are really looking forward to EVERYONE, members, family and friends, having a great time. Also, seeing who will get the most raffle prizes! Yes, they are still sitting in the spare bedroom.

Some very sad news came into my inbox this week. Long time SAM Club member Pete Crowther died, aged 58, whilst out mountain biking. Jill, Pete’s partner, has asked that SAM advanced bikers provide a funeral escort to support her and Pete’s family at this difficult time. If you can help, contact Chris Lund for details. The SAM Club sends our deepest sympathies to Pete’s family at this very sad time.

In this week’s newsletter, elderly drivers – and presumably elderly riders – may soon face restrictions on using a powered vehicle on the road. I don’t think this one will happen without a fight; especially from this elderly rider!!  I won’t drone on about what other goodies are in the newsletter this week, you can explore it for yourself.

To ensure that anyone interested in SAM activities can find them, the SAM and Survival Skills newsletters are also on the SAM website; so, everyone can read, enjoy and share. We have readers in many countries! Until next week…

Stay healthy and ride safe, Ed.
