National Memorial Arboretum New Visitor Centre Opening

Post by Don » Sat Sep 03, 2016 11:21 pm

wanted to throw an idea out there for a show of support from Mt Riders Club, at a fairly big event at the NMA at Alrewas ?

A new visitor centre is opening soon,

There may be MT club members who have attended the RTTW (google will guide who have not - to site for this year),

and there may be a few who may have done the 1000 Iron Butt with the RBLRB?
(google again - I had intended to try it on my Armstrong, but alas I was talked out of it by a mad fool of an Ex para friend of mine who suggested my VFR 800 would be a better bet - alas, alas he was right, albeit I had to vow never to be able to do that again at my age, on any bike) but given the chance to rock up on my Armstrong at the NMA with a group of bikes would be something special,

there is also a new memorial for the first gulf war there now, only this year, where more than one or two Armstrongs were in SERVICE,

anyone got the where withal to drum up a showing ?
am so busy & struggling withpersonalthings, not able to lead the charge this time,

plse & regs

I'll be there at the RTTW on 1st Oct. But not yet sure if I'll be on the MT or the Honda Pan.

New visitors cetre is due to open this month:
http://www.thenma.org.uk/whats-here/visitor-centre/

At the moment the main memorial (the Wall) is under refurbishment. I don't know if that is to be opened at the same time.

As it's a central part of the country, it's a good place to meet for a day's ride-out.
