The Bugle | Blast 444
Friday 3rd July 2020
Final Weekly Edition
QUOTE OF THE WEEK
“They always say time changes things, but you actually have to change them yourself.” - Andy Warhol
The Bugle has been delivered weekly to your mailbox for nearly nine years. It started as a simple reminder of website updates (see first edition below). The Bugle grew to cover items of general interest after the passing of Jack Jackson and with it The Anerley Gazette. Jack had painstakingly edited he Gazette for many years and stretched back to record over 100 years of our history.
Times have changed. Much of what ithe Bugle contained is, perhaps, better done elsewhere. Vince's new Register is the go-to place to discover your next ride. Reports and photos appear on social media during and shortly after the rides.
It was important to keep the Bugle going during lockdown when there were no rides to find or report on. Now is, perhaps, the best time to re-evaluate its purpose as the current editor is both running short of fresh ideas and time!
Hence from this edition onwards it will experimentally become monthly - published the first Friday of the month. It will, hopefuly, return to be what The Gazette always was - a reflective permanent record of the club and its achievements. It might adopt the old name. What do yoou think?
We can measure whether that be a success and whether it should continue at the November AGM. So until the 7th August - farewell - unless, of course, you would like to help edit it.
