Rattling along this week. Not the website, my chesty cough. You better wear gloves when you look at the website.
Phil the Spill moved on to 1989 for his report of this European Rally. Lots of photos as usual.
I believe that these celebrations now meet with a PC backlash, not for Sinterklaas but because of his Black Pieter helpers. Talk about kill-joys.
More badges from Ted Trett and Phil the Spill allowed us to keep to our promise of working through our backlog of badges. Yes, I know it's like painting the Forth Bridge but we're not letting that thought dishearten us. You send the badges, we'll worry about funding the work.
Phil tells me one of the I badges is not a rally. See if you can spot it.
Hans Veenendaal has skived off for a weekend motorcycling but not before submitting this week's European rally list update. There are now 1514 rallies in 2018.
Have a good weekend, Hans.
Winter flu and winter blues brought us down to ten riders for this week's cycle ride.
Lots of cake stops on our way to and from the Cherry Tree in Little Bowden. You'll be pleased to hear no-one suffered sunstroke but it was a close call.
Bring your membership subscription along to the Elephant and Castle in Thurlaston this Tuesday, 20 February and join in the Annual General Meeting.
This is the best opportunity of the year to see the workings of the huge and efficient organisation that brings you the Big End Rally.
Any Embers still on their feet (or wheels) will meet at Derek Jordan's place in Houghton on the Hill on Thursday, 22 February. Somehow Derek manages to lead us to a pub on a route that has no hills - I hope.
Never mind the cycling, think of the lunch. That's why on Thursday, 1 March we start and finish at the Red Lion in Huncote. Hmmm, off you go. I'll wait for you there.

Roland Potter is busy preparing for this year's MotoGP series, putting the final touches to his engines, sorting out his suspension and testing tyres.
Meanwhile, with his other hand he is putting together a season opening set of rider profiles. We've taken on more staff to cover the additional work load. For you alone we have an exclusive preview of what is to come.
