St Ge­orge hits 100

Old Bike Australasia - - 1918 WOLSELEY -

More than 200 peo­ple at­tended the Gala Din­ner to mark the cen­te­nary of the St Ge­orge Mo­tor Cy­cle Club, held at the Novo­tel, Brighton-Le-Sands near Syd­ney Air­port. The club be­gan in 1915, with meet­ings held in Sib Cor­ner’s Garage in Tempe, and grew to be­come one of the largest and most ac­tive clubs in the coun­try. MC for the evening was Bren­dan Jones, the ‘Jonesy’ half of the highly suc­cess­ful morn­ing ra­dio team Jonesy & Amanda (Keller). A keen mo­tor­cy­clist, Jones in­tro­duced var­i­ous peo­ple as­so­ci­ated with the club’s history, in­clud­ing mo­tocross leg­end Steven Gall and club pres­i­dent Steve Wyers. Club stal­wart Jan Bliz­zard, who had done much of the or­gan­i­sa­tion for the event, was taken se­ri­ously ill on the day prior to the din­ner, but re­leased from hos­pi­tal in the care of her fam­ily so she could make a short ap­pear­ance.
