  1. Not that I know of. It is something I proposed a couple of years ago - trying to create something which would be beneficial to traders and members - forget the high price we used to ask Traders to pay for a special category of being a member - just charge them the standard rate, but then allow them to advertise their products in our Vendors section, give us preferential treatment whatever that means - a heads up of a sale, new products, maybe discount coupons, whatever, but it would have to be advantageous for both sides. Even seeing their new products on our website would surely be interesting for some of us. Maybe we could give them a stack of "Join the VMC cards" and they could drop one in each order they mail out. Gone are the days when we could expect them to pay $75 for the privilege - indeed, we would have to work hard to make it worth their while, and we have to make it as easy as possible for them. I don't think anything came of my idea (as usual!) - I think the view was "why would they bother when they can reach so many more Vic owners freely on FB." My opinion was "But we ARE the VMC, the oldest and original Vic club, and we should make more of that - we were here when they started, and we are still here and not going anywhere, surely we should at least TRY."
  2. V2E-2: Friday 30 June - Thursday 13 July 2023 The idea of the V2E agreed before the inaugural running of the event in 2021 was to link the European LCs together in a relay type event similar to the US V2V. The first event started in LC Breizh (Brittany, France), and ended with LC Friuli (Italy). As per the V2V, the second running of the event, in 2023, will run in reverse, eg, from Friuli to Breizh. The second running of the V2E will start in Friuli, Italy, on 30 June 2023 and run north through Austria and Germany, then across to Luxembourg, Belgium, and finish in Breizh. The planning team currently consists of the 6 European LC Presidents. Planning is already underway and details will be posted in due course.

    The second running of the V2E (European equivalent of the US V2V) will start in Friuli, Italy on 30 June 2023 and run through Italy, Austria, Germany, Luxembourg, Belgium, and finish in Breizh, France, on or before 13 July 2023. Details will be published in due course.
  4. Looks like a great event, and thanks for posting the pics…..it helps those of us who weren’t there to feel connected. Everyone I have spoken to who was there said they had a fantastic time. Needless to say, these events don’t just “happen” and I know there is a tremendous amount of work which goes on for months in planning, stressful days and probably sleepless nights. I take my hat off to Steve Domagala and his team for stepping up to the plate again this year. Well done Steve.
  5. Me too…..wasn’t this one of the major events in the calendar, with considerable funding from Members money? Surely we should see more than six photos, and of those six only one showed any bikes, and a second showed (three) members. Come on - share the excitement with the rest of us!
  6. WANTED. I am looking for one or two high-resolution photos of one of the Victory Highway memorials, and also of the “Madonna of the Trail” monuments. This is for inclusion in the next “Victory Tales” book, which I have mentioned a few times elsewhere. It would be ideal if the photo(s) included some of our members and bikes, but if not, ok, just of the monuments. I have collected a number of photos some of you have kindly posted on here, but the website tends to reduce the resolution of the photos, and I need higher-res. So, if anyone can help, and doesn’t mind me using the photos in the next Vic Tales book, could you please email me: Marku1960@hotmail.com
  7. Our LC, Victory Riders Club Germany (VRCG), are planning what sounds like a fantastic European event, between 26 – 29 May 2022, in the region of the Black Forest in Germany. VRCG have already sent out invitations to our LCs in Europe, and it is hoped that guests from Norway, UK and other countries may also attend. Further details will be posted in due course, but I can tell you that Lothar (VRCG Pres) and his team are well into the detailed planning, and have told me that there will be an all-day guided tour (approx 200km) planned for all participants on May 27th in the Black Forest area, and there will be a second guided tour (approx 260km) on May 28th in the Alsace region of France. It sounds like it is going to a fantastic and very memorable event. I am sure that those military members who served in Germany will remember what a beautiful area this is. If anyone is making a trip to Europe over this time, I am sure the VRCG would be delighted to see you - Lothar Wiencke is the man to contact. I know that our other European LCs will be supporting the event too.

  11. Awesome, well done all of you. And thanks Kram for spending time to give us all chance to see the photos and for the write up. Excellent.
  12. I have compiled 110 pages of club history which I hoped would be put on the website early this year for members to correct, add to, delete, etc. A decision was made (not by me) to wait to do this (and the other ideas I had proposed) until after the new team looked at the website content as a whole. I have to say, I was disappointed as I hoped this would be something all members could see during the anniversary year and help improve so we had an agreed “official history” and it was something I have spent a ridiculous amount of time compiling, so now I am just trying to keep it updated. That having been said, I have posted many times about parts of the history I was working on at that particular time, and a number of members have seen it, including some of the charter members. Does that answer your question?
  13. Thanks Kevin, no, I sent 4 x PMs here via the website. She did reply to my first message saying she would gather the info, but heard nothing since. I am sure, as she is our next Sec, she will be checking here regularly so I am sure she must just be too busy right now. It isn’t urgent as such, I was just trying to keep the Club history updated, especially whilst things are fresh in people’s minds, and I thought it was a straightforward question….how many members/non-members attended?
  14. I have sent Rose 4 messages since 15 Sep. I received one reply saying she would send me the details...since then nothing heard. All I need is headline figures, unless the organisers feel there is anything else they want recorded.
