TTAG A.G.M: – 

Hi Everyone,

Our AGM will be held as usual at the Empire Hotel, Temuka 1.00 P.M. 6th of May. Subscriptions to be paid on the day.

There is no planned ride before the meeting. Just do it!


Stageing Post Run: – 

This is a club annual event, riding to a little bit North of Cheviot, North Canterbury. 600 klms there and back according to Rowdy. We will as usual be staying at the Stageing Post Holiday Park.

The cost this year is $30 per night, per person.

It looks like we will have two support vehicles this year with Bernie, Jim and Mary.  We will be leaving from the Eastside butchery, Temuka Friday the 25th May. Numbers, food arrangements will be finalized at our A.G.M.


The Brass Monkey: – 

The Oracle Rowdy tells me the Brass Monkey Rally is the following weekend after Stageing Post, 1st-3rd of June, Queens Birthday weekend.  Some interest has been shown at going to this Rally.

We can gauge further interest at the AGM and perhaps get a group together.


Mid Winter Party: – 

The Winchester show grounds have been booked for our mid winter party, mark your calendar for June 23rd.  Camping over night is encouraged.

Food and booze is free to members.


This Months Joke: – 

Joke Number #1: – 

After a relaxing bath, Monica Lewinsky was looking at herself naked in a mirror, remembering her time with Bill Clinton.

Her frustration over her inability to lose weight was depressing her. 

In an act of desperation, she decided to call on God for help . . .

“God, if you take away my love handles, I’ll devote my life to you,” she prayed.

And just like that!! . . . her ears fell off.


Joke Number #2: – 

Australian 911 Operator : – ” G’day mate. Helpline here. What’s your emergency?”

Caller:  “I’m in the Outback with the girlfriend and she’s been stung high on her thigh by a hornet and now her vagina has completely closed up!”

Australian 911 Operator: – “Bummer!”

Caller: – “Will do. Great advice! Thanks mate.”


Also: –

Further to the Brass Monkey Rally, a group of Ttag members will be leaving from Saltwater creek, south end of Timaru at 9 A.M. Saturday 2nd of June.

Also the date for our Magpie Madness Rally has been set for 23rd -25th November.
