MEM­BER­SHIP

Scootering - - Scootering Words & Sounds -

The Armed Forces Scooter Club is a tra­di­tional scooter club for mem­bers of the armed forces who share a love for all things scooter­ing. It’s an in­ter­na­tional club and has among its mem­bers are both serv­ing and for­mer armed forces per­son­nel from many dif­fer­ent na­tions. While most of the club ride tra­di­tional Lam­bretta and Vespa geared scoot­ers, all makes, ei­ther auto or geared are wel­come.

Mem­ber­ship is open to all serv­ing or for­mer mem­bers of the armed ser­vices, the only cri­te­ria is that they must have been an ‘op­er­a­tionally de­ploy­able re­source’ – ef­fec­tively this ex­cludes cadets and cadet force in­struc­tors with­out prior mil­i­tary ser­vice. Fol­low­ing the col­lapse of ‘The Blues and Twos SC’, as­so­ciate mem­ber­ship is also avail­able to serv­ing or for­mer mem­bers of the emer­gency ser­vices.

It should be noted that the club has a very low tol­er­ance for any­one with a ‘Wal­ter Mitty’ com­plex and is able to weed out such in­di­vid­u­als eas­ily with the pre­dictable ‘nam­ing and sham­ing’ fol­low­ing rapidly.
