History of Huddersfield Scooter Club

The "Huddersfield Scooter Club" as we know it now, was formed back in September 1984 following an amicable split from the Delirium Scooter Club.

But, as a recent (2009) article in the Huddersfield Examiner details, the club's history started in the 1960's. and will be added to this page

During the last 25+ years the club has had many ups and downs, but I think if you asked any member, past or present, they would all say that they have had a right good laugh while being in the club.

Some of Snelly's personal memories that spring to mind are: Woody grass-tracking across a roundabout on the way to Great Yarmouth (no one had told him he was meant to go around it!!!!). Wilky being threatened with expulsion from the RAC for abusing their relay recovery service. Myself overtaking 4 other scooters (showing off) only to slam into the back of a car on the way to Morecambe. The back up van to Girvan containing a full 3-piece suite (!!!!), 40 gallons of .....erm rather dodgy diesel and various hitch hikers picked up along the way.

Having a bit of a row with another local club at Morecambe which was starting to get nasty when some local lads started to take the piss out of us, where upon all arguments were forgotten as we grouped together to give the locals a kicking, those were the days.

Details of HUDDERSFIELD SCOOTER CLUB end of season party have been finalised. It is our 22nd Anniversary Do on Saturday 25th November 2006. The fun starts 8pm until 2pm with Bar open until 1am. It's at the IRISH CENTRE on Fitzwilliam Street, same venue as previous years and just 5 minutes walk from the Train Station. Large wooden dance floor, cheap beer, 300 capacity limit. Live music from THE CIRCLES and Top Rally Scooter DJ's playing a wide range of scootering tunes, quality raffle. Tickets are now on sale from any Huddersfield Scoter Club member at only £5 each. The event does sell out and when the capacity is reached we cannot let in any more so get your ticket early to avoid missing out.

This Bank Holiday weekend takes Huddersfield Scooter Club over to Morecambe. Those going over Friday will be in the RANCH BAR in the afternoon then moving on to UPSTAIRS DOWNSTAIRS later to have a drink or three with Narna who will be setting up some Karaoke tunes. Saturday is an early start with our very own CHUCKLE BROTHERS making a special guest appearance. The "DOUBLE D DUO" of Duesy & Denton will be playing all your ska/ punk scooterist tunes in the RANCH BAR from 12noon until they get kicked off (around ten past then!!) For live music on Saturday you can see SKA-BOOM live at THE CARLTON in the evening. Anyone that are staying for a 3rd night can enjoy KING KURT live, again at THE CARLTON. For those that don't know it is also CRAIGS 40th Birthday this weekend so I'm sure he'll let you buy him a pint or 40!!! Safe journey to everyone that's making the trip over.

Its the start of the season rally this weekend with GINGERS EASTER EGG RUN. Those going over Friday - have a great night - those who are going over on SATURDAY morning 1st April remember its a 12noon PROMPT start and they dont wait til 5past ! as we found out about 4 years ago when we pulled in the car park at 11:59am, prompty spun round and leaded the mass rideout away - cheers to Wilky and Snelly for getting us there eventually with Snelly's 1964 AA map and a tour of Salford market... anyway the plans are to meet up at The Bay Horse at 9am (no Fozzy, not for a pint!) but for a 9:30am departure along those nice A-roads over to LOWTON. The plan for the Huddersfield Motorway SC is to don your racing leathers and set off about 11:45am...... Don't forget your Egg - Sacky - usual trick of stopping off at all the petrol stations and newagents on route trying to buy one on the day yeah?
