SHAKESPEARE MOTORCYCLE CLUB STRATFORD UPON AVON Invites you to its 1992 Summer Rally LOVE'S LABOURS LOST September 18-20th 1992 £5 At 'The Four Alls', Welford-On-Avon 4 miles west of Stratford upon Avon on the B439 Stratford-Evesham Rd

We took our usual route via the freeway to the Hoverport in Calais.

The outward journey went without significant events, neither man nor machine gave out, so that we reached the pub The Four Alls in Welford on Avon very early in the afternoon.

The usual procedure of pitching tents, freshening up with cold water, then the first pint in the pub.

Axel, Evi, Ute and I drove on Saturday, like almost every year, first to the Wellesbourne Airfield Market and then to the Burton Dasset Hills.

The others, Dieter Mundorf, Karl Heinz Poppe and Klaus Dieter Heimann took a trip to Birmingham to visit an acquaintance of Klaus Dieter, Mr. Steven Keyte. During their training, both had taken part in an exchange program between the Hardy company in England and Walterscheid in Germany.

We spent both evenings in the pub with good food and friendly company.

Later that evening, after the chairman's speech, we received (it is hard to believe) the tankard for the longest journey from the continent.

We started the return journey in two groups. On Sunday Axel, Evi, Ute and I drove home. The rest of the group drove to Brighton and from there along the coast towards Dover and stayed in a B&B on Sunday evening. (However, nobody recalls in which coastal town any more). They then took the Hover Speed ​​towards France on Monday morning.

Once again a successful weekend with great memories.


Lucky for us, Hans saved his rally programmes.

Heather MacGregor's word search is on page 4. See how many words you can find. They read in all directions!



'Lovers and madmen have such seething brains, 
Such shaping fantasies, that apprehend 
More than cool reason ever comprehends!'
A Midsummer Night's Dream ActV Sc. i

Welcome to our Summer 1992 Rally, once again 
here at The Four Alls'. We have ordered better weather 
than hitherto, and have our fingers crossed. We 
trust you found us, despite the machinations of 
the Ministry of Transport; we are on the A439 or 
is it B439, depends which direction you approach.

'Be merry, and employ your chiefest thoughts 
To courtship, and such fair ostents of love 
As shall conveniently become you there.'
The Merchant of Venice, Act 11, Sc.viii

Food is available in the Four Alls throughout the 
weekend, and no doubt breakfasts will be organised 
on request; please note that food orders are now 
taken at the opposite end of the bar from previous 
occasions. Beers and lagers available include Brains 
Dark and Brain's Bitter, Flowers 0.B., and Murphy's.

'That man that hath a tongue, I say, is no man, 
If with his tongue he cannot win a woman.'
The Two Gentlemen of Verona, Act III Sc.i

Trophies will be presented in the pub late on 
Saturday evening. 

'Love looks not with the eyes, but with the mind, 
And therefore is wing'd Cupid painted blind.'
A Midsummer Night's Dream, Act I, Sc.i

'When I said I would die a batchelor, I did not 
think I should live till I were married.'
Much Ado About Nothing, ACTII Sc.iis 

Shakespeare Club T Shirts and Sweat Shirts are 
available at Bargain prices - see notice in the 
Control Tent, and hats at giveaway price to protect 
you from the dangerous overpowering rays of the 
sun. (They also keep the rain off for abqut twenty 

'Win her with gifts, if she respect not words; 
Dumb jewels often in their silent kind, 
More than quick words do move a woman's mind.'
The Two Gentlemen of Verona, III; Sc

Heather has provided the usual back page puzzle, 
which appears on the back page (How could that be) 

'Friendship is constant in all other things 
Save in the office and affairs of love: 
Therefore all hearts in love use their own tongue.'
Much Ado About Nothing, Act II, Sc.i.

'Love is not love 
Which alters when it alteration finds, 
Or bends with the remover to remove.'
Sonnet 116

'That what we have we prize not to the worth, 
Whiles we enjoy it; but being lack'd and lost, 
Why, then we rack the value.'
Much Ado About Nothing, Act IV, Sc.i

'Sleep dwell upon thine eyes, peace in thy breast; 
Would I were sleep and peace, so sweet to rest.'
Romeo and Juliet, Act II, Sc.ii

Yes, I've totally run out of inspiration 
and what you've got is a puzzle composed 
of words beginning with 'L'. To make it 
more difficult for you (and to save me 
typing the list) you will have to find 
them out for yourselves. There should be 
23 but I may have added more, see how 
many you can find!

I will omit no opportunity 
That may convey my greetings, love, to thee.'
Romeo and Juliet, Act III, Sc.v.
