The Club Newsletter
by Dave Tooley
The Solent City Scooter Club Newsletter was solely devised,
compiled, edited, printed and distributed by myself for an
extremely short period of time after I joined the club.
I had been given access to a manually operated Gestetner
printing copier from my Auntie who lived in Gosport.
She also had a manual typewriter. (Was there any other type in
those days? I don’t think so)
My typing skills were negligible, and it would take me a whole
day of painstakingly ‘one finger typing’ out a Gestetner Master
document, then a good part of Sunday morning actually printing
the newsletters out for the club members to read..
After sacrificing 4 or 5 precious weekends, I realised my
stupidity in volunteering for this task, and informed Mick
Estlick that I’d seen the light and decided to retire from this
overbearing task. Consequently, any copies of these
Newsletters would be rarer than Rocking Horse poo, and
priceless to me.
I would be absolutely amazed if anyone has kept a copy, but
if so I’d be overjoyed to see one again, typo’s and all.
