Half cen­tury cel­e­brated

Old Bike Australasia - - OUT’N’ABOUT -

FE­BRU­ARY 7, 2015 was the date that the New­cas­tle Vin­tage Mo­tor­cy­cle Club notched up their half cen­tury, and the venue was Club Mac­quarie at Ar­gen­ton in the heart of the NSW Hunter Val­ley. Guests were treated to a won­der­ful evening with Rob Rowe do­ing a great job as MC, ably as­sisted by Terry Lewis, and with guest speak­ers Chris Pick­ett and OBA’s edi­tor. Dur­ing the course of the evening life mem­ber cer­tifi­cates and spe­cial ap­pre­ci­a­tion cer­tifi­cates were is­sued, and a very tricky trivia quiz con­ducted. The NVMC had its first meet­ing on 6th Jan­uary 1965 at the Northum­ber­land Ho­tel in Lambton with 15 peo­ple present. Ted Ball be­came the first pres­i­dent and Scotty Sun­der­land the first sec­re­tary. Since then the club has grown strongly and to­day cel­e­brates motorcycli­ng in all its forms; from vet­eran to the more mod­ern eras. On Sun­day 8 Fe­bru­ary, club mem­bers gath­ered at Mor­peth for a well-sup­ported Girder Fork Ride, the first of four rides to be con­ducted dur­ing 2015.
