Following the success of the Sherwood Pines ride (see here: http://www.retrobike.co.uk/forum/viewto ... highlight=) which involved a reasonable proportion of regular members from the East Midlands sort of area - we thought it might be an idea to create a loose afiliation, much like the MacRetro clan.

One possible name was MiDRetro short for 'Ey Up Mi Duck' - an expression occasionally (let's be realistic!) around these parts :D

Any other suggestions and then shall we put it to a poll?

Are we even happy that it be described as East Midlands rather than Midlands or similar?

Thoughts please ladies and gentlemen :D

I did think that the MiD widened our catchment as East Midlands has various interpretations as an area.
But hey, I'm too new and awstruck to know anything. :oops:

well it's a loose afiliation - probably more directed by the location of the rides than the members perhaps?

We are now Stickified - that means we have to be serious and no banter or jokes... ok, only kidding :D .

Let's keep thinking about the name and we will put it to a poll in say a week's time, after which we will add the name to the thread.
