GOOD COMPANIONS RALLY 2021

STOLEN BIKES RECOVERED!
Very good news that both bikes and trailer were recovered one week after the theft, after a post “I know where those 2 bikes are” was seen on Facebook. Stolen Sunday 15 March and recovered Sunday 22 March. Some minor damage apparently, however Wietse Keuning is understandably over the moon to have his 2 favourite motorbikes and trailer back in his possession. This theft does serve as a warning to us all!

MEMBERS MACHINE DATABASE FORM
The club has a Database form page for VOCA members to submit details on their machines, it is one of the menu item at the top of the page. All details will remain private and for club officials use ONLY.
Hopefully one day we can produce a modest booklet or similar so the history etc of our machines is captured and not lost over time.
The committee decided to have it made available on this VOCA website where everyone can fill it out and return it to Dominic Brown so he can create the database – once completed click on the “SUBMIT” button
Of course all details are strictly general in nature and no identification of the location of the machines is being requested other than which state it is located in.
GOOD COMPANIONS RALLY – WHERE IT ALL STARED
Here are three copies of 1983 club newsletters, showing the before/ during/after writeups of the first NSW rally’s, which eventually morphed into what we all know and love as the Velocette Owners’ Club of Australia’s “Good Companions Rally”.
(Thanks go to Paul Barfoot for sending me the copies)
