CUSTER ASSOCIATION OF GREAT BRITAIN

Although after 18 months we planned that next Gathering would take place on Saturday, 6th November 2021 at the National Motorcycle Museum in Birmingham to celebrate our belated 20th and 21st Anniversary, we have reluctantly had to cancel until Saturday, 11th June 2022 because we only had six members indicate they would be coming.

 

The notice of the rescheduled AGM for 2021 which was was meant to be held at our November Gathering has been sent to members via email and will take place on Saturday, 8th January 2022 from 4:30PM UK time on the Zoom platform. Details of the link were included in the PDF attached to the email.

Barry C.
