On behalf of the committee of the Barrel Bikers MCC:
We will not be holding the GPO rally or other events this year. The majority of club members have not seen each other in a year now, we have suffered losses, and we need time to rebuild as a club first, before focusing on public events.
We anticipate that the Firkin O’Bitter rally 2022 will be our next public event. The 2022 GPO is intended to be bigger and better than ever to celebrate our belated 40th and to commemorate tough times and those we’ve loved and lost.
Barrel Bikers MCC
Hello All, following government advice the Barrel Bikers MCC have made the difficult decision to postpone their public events for the remainder of 2020.
This will affect the Custom Show (planned for Aug-20) and the 40th anniversary GPO rally (planned for Sept-20).
Our intention regarding the 40th GPO celebrations will be to ‘carry forward’ this event to 2021. For those that have purchased tickets already for the 2020 GPO, you will receive an email shortly from the Rally Secretary regarding your tickets. Contact the rally sec on firstname.lastname@example.org if you do not receive this email.
Thank you for supporting our club and events. Stay safe and we look forward to seeing you again soon.
Barrel Bikers MCC
