WHERE I T ALL S TARTED

Scootering - - Kickstart -

The An­i­mal An­tics Scooter Rally started in 2009, the year after Mick Shore formed the Armthorpe An­i­mal SC with Dave Copeland and his wife, Marie. The rally was ini­tially held for sev­eral years at Clampit Creek, Hax­ley, Don­caster. How­ever, due to cir­cum­stances be­yond their con­trol Clampit Creek was closed down. The rally briefly moved for a year to Squires Café, Sher­burn-in-El­met, North York­shire be­fore tak­ing up its cur­rent res­i­dence at the Hay­field Shoot­ing and Fish­ing Lodge, Don­caster.

Patched Club

The Armthorpe An­i­mals SC are a ‘patched club’, which means that mem­bers go through a pe­riod of as­sess­ment un­til they are prop­erly ac­cepted as a full ‘patched mem­ber’. An in­di­vid­ual is first classed as a ‘hang around’ then they move on to be­ing a ‘prospect’ and then, if they are suc­cess­ful with their pe­riod as a ‘prospect’ they be­come a ‘patched mem­ber’.

No prob­lem with se­cu­rity

Found­ing mem­ber Mick Shore is a mixed mar­tial arts ex­pert, who trained with Larry Hart­sell, one of Bruce Lee’s orig­i­nal stu­dents. Club mem­ber Jonny Adams is an ex-pro­fes­sional wrestler aka ‘Jonny An­gel’ who’s pre­vi­ously wrested against ‘Gi­ant Haystacks’, ‘Bri­tish Bull­dog’ and ‘Big Daddy’. Jonny is also an ex-body­guard to Joe Calza­ghe, Mike Tyson, Chris’ Eubank and Steve Collins, and club mem­ber Carl Briggs is an ex-Royal Ma­rine and Rother­ham’s strong­est man!
