    BLOC AGM Thursday 2nd March 7:30 onwards at The Clarence, Preston New Road

    Posted on

  2. BLOC Committee

    Many thanks to all the members who made it to this years AGM- for those that couldn't make it below are some of the bullet points:- From next week 3rd March club meetings will be held at The Clarence on Preston New Road. A change of venue has been mooted for some time now to try and encourage more members down and on their scoots. A vote was held tonight and for the time being The Clarence will be our new meeting point. If you can pass this message on to any members with no Facebook access it would be appreciated. Membership remains at £10, although overall we made a loss last year the club funds are still in a healthy state, twenty one members renewed or joined last night and with the numbers that couldn't make it for various reasons we should again be looking at around 35-40 members. We will be looking into an overnight trip somewhere (hopefully camping) for members, probably 1st week in September, we are currently looking at suitable locations (pubs) possibly the lakes or Yorkshire Dales which would welcome our custom so watch this space. St Georges Day, a drinking session is being arranged to commemorate the loss of Bibby and Rob Turner, all scooterists and ex scooterists are invited, at present the current meeting place and time is Scruffy Murphys (the old Grapes) in town at 11:00, however the numbers attending is growing each day so again watch this space as the venue could change There will be no BLOC club do this year as we will be supporting the Blackpool Soul Festival and Scooter Fest on Saturday June 18th 2016. The event is being held at the Winter Gardens and St Johns Square. We have been asked to marshall the event and put on a Club display. Again thanks to all who attended and for those that couldn't hopefully see you next week at The Clarence

    Thanks to all the members who turned up for last nights AGM and their contributions to the meeting. For those that couldn't make it a brief summary of proceedings:- 1) Membership will be £10.00 again, all members will receive a tower logo hoodie so when you pay please give your size (be realistic coz there will be no returns smile emoticon ). The club will also be paying for membership for each member to Wainwright Club 2) BLOC will be holding another weekender 11th and 12th September at Blackpool Cricket club. Details to follow. 3) This year we will be running a best points scoring member trophy to be awarded at the end of the rally season to the club member who has accumulated the most points in the LCGB Riders Championship. 4) Club members will be attending numerous LCGB, National and Club rallies

    Hi all, Anyone know the name of the band that was booked at the Norbreck in March last year? Trying to get hold of them with a booking. 2 guys, 2 instruments, think it was a big bass and a cello? or something like that, they played everything really fast, sang as well. We thought they were amazing! Need their details asap if anyone can help, much appreciated x

    Morning, I am the Events Manager at Barton Grange Garden Centre and would like to discuss the possibilty of you doing a small exhibition of Italian Lambretta in our green room on April 5th & 6th. Ideally a mix of old and new styles and perhaps we could extend the exhibition to outside. Could I possibly discuss this with someone please? 01995642932 or email sue.swire@bartongrange.co.uk It would be a ideal opportunity to promote the club. I look forward to hearing from you. Many thanks, Sue

    Notice a face from the past being a certain Dennis Holmes has posted a comment back in March of this year. Can someone let me know if he is still a member? I was going to drop into the meeting tonight to see what it's all about these days. It would seem you have a ride out , will people be going back to the Wainwright afterwards tonight? If so what time? I am looking to join so would appreciate the heads up if someone is on line. Many Thanks

    During last Tueasday's meeting it was decided weather permitting that we would hold our annual rideout through the lights this coming Tuesday 24th. The weather forecast looks excellent so the plan is to meet between 7:30 and 7:40 at KFC/Pizza Hut carpark on Preston New Road, leaving at 7:45. Allother clubs and solo riders welcome to come along. Not everyone has access to the internet so please pass the message on to other club members. It's short notice but the weather forecast is too good to miss

    We are looking to invite local groups to the Cleveleys Classic Car Show on Sunday 9 June 2013 and wondered whether this would be of interest to you. Would you be interested in attending and spreading the word amongst the lambretta and scooter groups ? If we know you are attending we can reserve a special area for you. Regards Paul

    Chris LawderPosted on 6:31pm Friday 29th Mar 2013 HI Lady's & Gents, Sorry if this is late in the day but after contacting the Hospices about us going up to Brian House on Sunday it seem they have had a scooter club go with eggs today, and after speaking to a number of commity members it would be a poor turnout due to a lager number of our members away on the Scarborough Easter Rally. Sorry to cancel this ride out!!

    Posted on

  26. chris lawder

    Following this weeks meeting, it was discussed that we do the Easter Egg run on the Sunday 31st March, we are aware that a number of member's will be missing due to the Scarborough Rally. But if any members would like to join me at Star Gate / Tram Depot at 11.30 Sunday 31st March to leave at 12.00ish to take Easter Eggs upto Brian House Children's Hospice in Bispham. Don't forget an Easter Egg, Tom will send a reminder text. Lets support a local charity, with a local club.

    Posted on

  27. Chris Lawder

    Quick update, Eddie has just indicated that Sunday 31st a number of members are at the Easter Rally in Scarborough so Bank Holiday Monday 1st April would be a better solution. Will discuss next week.

    Posted on

  28. Chris Lawder

    Guys, We are looking to organise a egg run,fund raising event to the Blackpool Trinity Hospice on Easter Sunday 31st March from Star Gate South Shore. Some of the club members maybe aware but for those of you that don't we have a fellow Blackpool Scooterist in the hospice who has terminal cancer, Andy Smith, so I am looking for a great turn-out giving him all our support. I will look to discuss the timings at next weeks meeting, please make the effort for one of our own. Chris

    From: longscootdown@findavoice.org.uk Greetings fellow scooterists WE NEED YOUR HELP AND SUPPORT DESPERATELY My name is Becky and I am the lead organiser for the charity event “The Long Scoot Down ” Many of you may well have heard of the event which is to take place in June 2011 and is in aid of a charity called Find a Voice. Websites for both will be attached to the end of this email for you to have a nosy at!! I am emailing everyone from the list of UK clubs using the info from Scootering Magazine, in the hope I can encourage you and your club members to get involved somehow. The ride route can be found on the website, and I’d like to take this opportunity to encourage as many of you as I can to join us at some point along the route. We would be honoured to receive your support and to meet as many fellow scooties as we can, or would like to encourage your clubs to organise ride outs in our honour, and to help us raise some money for the charity we are riding for. We will be holding our own small, off shoot rideouts before the main event, one which is called Tour d’Kent and is a 180 mile “warm up”. Every rider has been asked to give a small donation to ride. The info for this can be found on our Facebook page LONGSCOOT DOWN email address please add us as a friend if you haven’t already. scooterrun@yahoo.co.uk We are keen to make the Long Scoot Down a national event, involving as many scooterists as is humanly possible. Damian Green MP, the Immigration Minister is involved in the ride and will be contacting names such as Paul Weller for us in the very near future. We also have the actress Jan Francis involved, she will be encouraging names such as Phil Daniels to show us some support also. So, do you think you’d like to get involved somehow? Show us some support along the route, hold your own ride outs in aid of us, maybe a night of scooter sounds or a collection pot in your local pub etc!! If you think you might like to get involved please don’t hesitate to contact me either by email or by telephone, 01233 640443 office hours or on my mobile 07710999421. We will add your club to our supporters area of the website. We already have the support of many local clubs, some are holding nights of scooter sounds, some will be meeting us on the last leg of our ride etc., and to these I say a warm heartfelt thank you!! A big thank you also to the guys in Stirling, Scotland, for offering us places to camp and a few drinkies before the ride and to the guys at Weston-super-Mare for the offer of camping at the rugby ground along with copious amounts of beer!! Help us to show the whole UK what we scooter enthusiasts can do!! please print attatched flyer to help promote our event. thank you. I look forward to hearing from you and thank you for your time in reading my email. All the best, ride safe and hope to see you on the route! Becky (South Kent saints SC) Xxx

I knew your dad for many tears having lived on Egerton Rd as a kid up to my early 20's sadly I moved away and lost touch with all the guys around there many years ago eg Rob. Mick Bolton, John Lodge etc. But being such a sound guy I am sure Rob will be sadly missed by all his mates and everyone that knew him. R.I.P Rob

    Hi all, some of you may remember me, I used to do the club meeting years ago, I was knocked off my scoot in 2000, and ended haveing my leg chopped off, well anyway sorry for boreing you all, the reason Iam getting in touch is to see if any of you lads and lassies will please help me out ???? My daughter is haveing her prom night on the 21st of this month, and she has asked me if I would take her on my scoot, as I now have a comby, but to be honest I have only done about 40 miles on it, Iam trying to get together an escort for her, so that she turnes up in style, and I wondered if any of you could help ????? Like Ive said it is Friday the 21st of this month, and it would be from our house in Cleveleys up to the Hilton in Blackpool, Ive spoke to Martin and he said to put out a shout on here aswell...... Ive been in touch with John in Preston, also Growler in Southport to ask for there help aswell, as like any dad I would love to help my daughters night be special, so if any of you can help it would mean a hell of alot to me ?????????????? thanks for takeing the time to read this, and hopefully see you there ??? Martin Dean and Martin in Lancaster have both got my numbers, so hopefully hear from some of you soon,,,,,TA

    Hello Chris,you was very lucky to have a dad like Rob.Iam sure the whole of the Scooter scene in Blackpool will all miss him and his great sense of humour. You certainly new you was in for a treat if you spent any amount of time with him. He will certainly be missed by us all. Take care mate and should you ever need anything dont hesitate to ask.

    Welcome back to the scene Andy. I'm sure you'll recognise some of the faces in the club. You don't need to wait for your bike to be on the road, just turn up on a Tuesday night and introduce yourself. You'll probably find it handy for hints and tips plus if you need any parts getting your GP on the road.

  62. Andy McGregor

    Hi, just found youe website, great to see the scooter scene is still alive and well in Blackpool. I rode with the Vagabonds in the late 70s and went to school with Mick Bolton who I havent seen in years. Sold my scooter in early 80s when I got married and had kids. Just bought a GP 200 and its like I am 17 again, should have it on the road in a few weeks and hope to come to one of your meets.

    Les, keep an eye on our events and gallery page for updates to our Flickr account. I've scanned over 400 photos, a lot of them Bibby's, just waiting for our chairman to sort out how to post them chronologically by rally. There's a fair few already up and there's quite a few with the Modernisers as a group so you may spot yourself on them. Like you still a Moderniser at heart and always will be, I'll keep an eye out on the rallies for you as I still wear all my club patches as do some of the other lads.

    Posted on

  83. Mr Les

    Cheers Eddie - much appreciated, moved from Blackpool and lived all over, now Portishead (Bristol), ride with the Jolly Boys SC (www.jbsc.co.uk) but still a Moderniser at heart (including all my patches !) - really would like to catch up with Bibs and some of the old crew - all help appreciated from anyone(facebook Scooter Les) Cheers

    Posted on

  84. Eddie

    Hi Les, Bibby's still in the club although not well at the moment and we haven't seen him for a couple of months, Mick Bolton's got another scoot (custom sprayed GP) and currently living out of town. Gaz Beckett and Pete Haslem are in the club and post on the site so they may have more info. Rob Turner is occasionally seen out and about, hasn't changed but hasn't succumbed to getting another scooter (yet). Colin, one of the younger Modernisers from the early eighties is still riding currently with Pogue Mahones. When I see any of them if they haven't answered I'll get them to contact you. Eddie, Modernisers SC 86 - 91 BTW some good videos on your site

    Posted on

  85. Mr Les

    Bibs, Rob, Mick (x2), Tobias, etc - where are you all ???? Mr Les want's to get back in touch - Modernisers SC 1976-81 anyone help ? www.youtube.com/sunnyles les.csonge@yudu.com 0782 541 7530

    Hello B/pool Scooter Boy's / Mods, I was searching for an SX 200 restored or restoration project when I came accross the Blackpool Lambretta Club Site (I'm from B/pool but writing this blog from Moscow) and noticed Paul Livesey's name whom if it's the same Paul that I new used work with me in Cleveley's at Dorest Gate for J. Fisher & Co, Toolmakers (sweat shop)and a period in my life I prefer to forget. Aanyway I now feel quiet depressed seeing all of those beautiful scooters especially having sold my SX 200 some 30 years ago to an OK Club Member and paint sprayer called Martin Pace and which I still dream about, although mine had been totally chromed (I have a picture back in Blackpool and will send) but currently working in away and freezing to death. A great site, inspirational and fantastic to see the photos of you guy's & girls enjoying yoursleves - Martin Turner
