“So that’s what you look like!!”
A phrase heard repeatedly at the SSBB social held on Sunday 18th September at the Freebird, Newcastle-under-Lyme, when Controllers met Riders face to face for the first time.
Louisa W, one of our Controllers liaised with Ian and Maz, the landlord and landlady of the Freebird, to arrange the social event to allow members to get together and also to meet local supporters.
Ian and Maz not only opened their doors to us but provided a free BBQ for those attending. Ian confirmed his intention to support SSBB over the coming months. Good news for SSBB!
Several members of the Greedy Pigs MCC were in attendance. Dave was head chef at the BBQ all afternoon and Kathy, Roo, Goose and Andy looked after the marshalling of the bikes on Mr Tyre’s car park, with his kind permission.
Numerous supporters arrived with home-made cakes, local Allied Bakeries donated the baps and so many local businesses and supporters donated to create a wonderful array of prizes for the raffle. Controller Stuart B. drew the winning tickets and first winner was SSBB Rider Den H. who chose the whisky!! Later on, one of the special prizes, a motorcycle helmet, was won by a certain Andrea H. I think they had a good afternoon!!
The weather was beautiful. The food was tasty. The company was excellent.
What a great way to spend a Sunday!
