The ever-increasing number of machines on our local roads has for some time caused several owners to suggest the formation of a club. ' .A meeting to discuss the matter was '"held in the home of Mr. J. G. (Gordon) Grandy last Friday night with the re sult that approximately one dozen motor cyclists have now formed the Diamond. Valley ~lotor Cycle Club (D.V.M.C.C.). Those present at the meeting felt that the club was as yet too young and too small to affiliate with the Auto Cycle Union. Hence, &lt;as-the club will have no fees to pay or expenses to meet, it will need no capital and it will not cost any inter ested motor cyclist a farthing to join. The idea' behind the formation of the D.V.M.C.C. is that most young motor cycle owners like to go for a run on Saturday or Sunday aft...
