breakaway group from Goole's other scooter club~The
Goole Gladiators. We have been doing the 'National'
rallies every year since, plus other scooter club's own
events. Although the clubs numbers have fallen, we still
make the 'most' of the events attended with friends that
we have met along the way from all over the country. We
have attended rallies on scooters (Lambrettas/Vespas) as
far North as Fort William in Scotland and as far South
as Newquay in Cornwall, also the European rallies
including Strasbourg, Denn Haag etc. This year sees us
going back to Holland in July to a place called Borculo
