This pic is from when I received  the special medal - but can’t remember who it was that presented it. !!!

Because you were only allowed a few minutes to speak ( except Crevier - who didn’t seem to know this !! what a hoot he is) - I really didn’t get to say what I wanted to, about Trials in Canada. - (The fact that it isn’t all about young guys jumping from rock to rock dressed in spandex suits.)

I count myself extremely lucky for the life that Ive been able to live involved in motorcycling  — none of which would have been possible without the long time support of Babsy.  - One thing I did say in my speech, was that one year, - back in the day - Yamaha had a slogan - “Yamaha it’s a Family Affair” - I closed by saying that I think that’s a great slogan for Motorcycle sport, because without the Mum’s & Dads  buying the bikes & getting the youngsters out to the races and the weekend camp outs , - there would be no future.

Although this is not the “Official” group pic - it shows the Inductees  plus a couple of people picking up for deceased members. ( Wally Klammer’s daughter is in the middle - her speech was a tear jerker)

Best quote from Taff, after seeing the pics -”Looking pretty dapper - even if your “Gob” looks like a graveyard”

( Gob is a UK slang term for mouth)
