All club activities suspended until March 2021, the committee will review the situation as it changes
Please find below a link to the risk assessment carried out by the Highland Classic Motorcycle club to cover club activities during the current COVID Pandemic.
Unfortunately, due to the new COVID-19 lockdown rules, the club meeting and AGM which was due to be held on the 6th October has now been cancelled, at least in a physical meeting form.
Please check your email for updates from the committee.
Due to the Scottish Government restricting the number of people who can meet outside, the committee have taken the decision to cancel the September 2020 club run.
Apologies for the inconvenience, however I am sure that you can understand that this is outwith the control of the club, and the club wish to both remain legal and keep our members and the general public safe.
*** NOTE CHANGE OF VENUE ***
Due to COVID restrictions, the club are holding a meeting in August in the open air.
Meeting will be at Fairways Leisure car park (where the Loch Ness Rally starts from), 20:00 on the 4th August.
Club runs are starting again, full details can be found on Facebook using the following link
It is with regret that we need to inform you that the 2020 Loch Ness Rally has been cancelled.
This is in accordance with the current government guidance on social distancing as part of the COVID-19 response.
The committee will be in discussion with Fairways Leisure, and will attempt to reschedule the event for later in the year. As you will be aware, this is dependent on a number of factors outwith our control. We will of course keep members updated in due course.
We will continue to monitor the situation, and will comply with government guidelines and advice.
As this is our flagship event, it was not a decision taken lightly.
Apologies for having to break the bad news.
Hope you are all well and keeping safe.
On behalf of the
Highland Classic Motorcycle Committee.
Due to the current global pandemic of COVID-19 (aka Coronavirus), it has been necessary to inform you all that all club activity has been suspended until further notice. This includes, but it not limited to; Club Runs, Club meetings and social functions.
The decision to suspend all club activities has been made by the chair, along with the full backing of the committee was not an easy one to make and was made following the updated guidance from the Scottish and UK governments.
Due to the fluid nature of the pandemic, the committee are in contact with each other on a frequent basis. No final decision on whether any of our events will be held or cancelled will be made until closer to the time.
We understand that putting the club on pause is disappointing, however the safety and well-being of our members is the most important factor and the key reason for suspending club activity. The committee have been continually monitoring the latest public health and Government guidelines regarding the evolving COVID-19 situation and acting in accordance with their advice.
Thank you all for your patience, understanding and support in these unprecedented times, and would like to remind members to follow the advice of the government and health professionals.
We hope that all members and their families take any necessary precautions and remain healthy during this period.
