Some of the badges I've lost. Many of the places I've forgotten. I hope you can jog my memory with pictures and anecdotes. Those of us who were there enjoyed every minute we've forgotten.
It's strange how people can go to the same places weekend after weekend, the same rallies, the same pubs, and do it for years and not really meet up unless you're introduced by a friend, which is how I know Nigel, through a mutual friend, Rod Taylor to whom I was introduced by another mutual friend, Steve Cawthorne, who was a hell of a nice chap who I first met at the 1970 Heart of England Rally around the camp fire, sing song and tall tale telling.

Terry Plant was a member of the Potteries Phoenix MCC and a keen rallyist in the 70s. Sadly Terry died as a result of injuries received in a motorcycle accident . His son Chris hopes to learn a bit more about that side of his father's earlier motorcycle activities. When Terry attended the rallies below he would have been about 19 years old.
If you rallied in the 70s and recall Terry who came from Stoke on Trent, please send a message to Chris via LPMCC.net.
What an amazing discovery. Finding such a website to something I vigorously participated in the 70's and 80's and still got most of the badges on a musty moth-eaten denim cutoff that will never fit me again.

I've just been reading about a gathering of 150 clubmen in Richmond, Yorks, in March 1907. The Newcastle, Sunderland, Hartlepool, Middlesborough, Leeds and Bradford MCCs sent contingents; in 1908 there were more clubs and 200 riders and they made it an annual event.
